Next Time Someone Whines About Being 'Friend Zoned,' Tell Them These 2 Words

If I hear someone say they've been "friend zoned" one more time...

"For the so-called nice guys who complain about being placed in the friend zone: SHUT UP."

In case you're unfamiliar with the term "friend zone," let me explain. The "friend zone" is known as a horrible place where a person may end up if the object of their affection wishes to keep things platonic. Harmless enough, right? Well, not so much.

Turns out the "friend zone" is actually just a place for people who think they deserve to sleep with someone. Um, ew.

There are lots of things worth complaining about. Being "friend zoned"? Not one of them.

"Thinking you are owed something for not being an asshole makes you an asshole." YES. THIS.

This brings us to the second part of the performance ...

"Who the f*** complains about being placed in something called the 'friend zone'?"

"It sounds awesome. Like Auto Zone, but for friends." The two paint quite the beautiful picture of a lovely place called the "friend zone" — the kind without expectations of sex. It's magical! There are sunflowers and pizza and friendly pirates and only consensual hugs.

The best part? In the "friend zone," there's a giant boat filled with s'mores called ... wait for it ... The Friend Ship.

Boom. Well said.

So remember: If you're complaining about "just" being someone's friend, that probably means you're a pretty bad friend anyway.

Madison Square Garden in New York City is known for having hosted some legendary performances. George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in '71, Billy Joel's 12 sellouts in '06, and Carmelo Anthony's 62 points in a 2014 victory against the Charlotte Bobcats, just to name a few.

But it's hard to imagine one person holding the legendary arena in the palm of their hand quite like Pete DuPré, better known as "Harmonica Pete," did on Veterans Day.

Many of us are too young to remember the hijacking of Pan Am Flight 73 of 1986, much less any details about it. But thanks to a viral Facebook post from Misfit History, some attention is being shed on an incredible heroine who saved many American lives in the standoff.

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.
