We asked girls for the dumbest reasons they cried while hormonal and now I’m crying too

‘I cried because the sky was beautiful’

We've all been there — in a situation where normally, we'd be faintly annoyed, but with the added bonus of a veritable tsunami of estrogen. Sometimes, you just have to cry it out, am I right?

Whether it's that Sarah McLaughlin commercial with those sad, abandoned cats or the Chipotle employee fucking up your order because you were mumbling, we've all burst into tears off some deeply stupid shit.

We asked our readers about the dumbest thing that's ever made them cry in that super special pre-period window (or beyond) and boy, did they deliver. If you can make it through this article without tearing up, congratulations: you're stable! Must be nice.

Mamma mia, that's-a tragedy!

I cried because a pepperoni fell off the pizza… and I felt bad for the pepperoni.

What came first?

I cried because I dropped an egg and I thought about the mother chicken.

Sodium OD

I cried once because I wanted a veggie Chipotle bowl and my boyfriend got me chicken and I told him I was going to DIE from the salt. I lived though ?


A hot mess

I was eating ranch and chicken wings and the ranch spilled all over the to-go box. It was gonna get super messy, and I didn’t want it to be that messy!

I picked out the wrong pair of leggings and didn't realize until I was halfway to class. Mind you, I had two pairs of the exact same leggings –same color, same size, but one felt different to me deep down in my soul and I wanted to wear those, not the subpar ones I ended up wearing! I cried so much I missed class.

Mommy dearest

Girl, Postmates exists

I cried because I couldn’t get a Wendy’s Spicy Chicken sandwich… because I can’t drive.

Sorry, babe

I was mad at my bf all day. All fucking day. So finally, he sits down to ask me what the problem is, and I’m going to tell him. Oooh, I’m going to tell him what the fucking problem is! So I get myself all huffed up and ready to fucking tell this bitch off, when I quickly realize I have no fucking clue why I’m mad at him. So I start laughing. Hysterically. He looked so confused, and that look of confusion quickly turned to a look of horror because I started bawling my eyes out for being mean to him all day. True story.


What's poppin'?

I asked my bf at the time to get me Pop Tarts from the store and he got birthday cake instead of strawberry… So I started crying so much he went back and bought three different flavors ?

– Melissa

Cake, cake, cake

I cried for about a week solid after getting my IUD in, like over every goddamn thing. My mom was sick of me crying constantly and being so weepy. She tried everything to make me cheer up. She then took a day off and baked my favorite cake with me! Our mother/daughter songs on my Spotify as we baked, we laughed, watched TV, had a great time!

Then we sat down with a cup of tea after doing the washing up and I was about to get my first taste of our double chocolate, chocolate chip peanut butter cake, and it fell off the fork as I lifted it to my mouth…. I cried hysterically for 10 minutes.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's the regular sky

The clouds looked sad on the way home ?
