We texted our one-night stands to ask when we could exchange Christmas gifts and things got MESSY πŸ’‹

They were *not* excited to hear from us

The holidays are great because you get to eat as much as you want, binge drink in front of your parents, and flex on all your old high school acquaintances. But they're also great because they encourage us — in our eggnog induced stupors — to message risky things to all the people we definitely shouldn't be messaging. Like telling someone we've been seeing for one month we "love them," or messing "happy holidays," to an ex we had a horrible, messy falling out with.

And because here at babe we love chaos, we decided to add fire to fire and texted our one night stands asking them when we could give them their Christmas gifts. They were…not expecting to hear from us:

'I don't have this number in my phone'

'That's so nice of you! I can meet the week of Xmas!'

Image may contain: Text Message, Text

'That's very sweet of you Em! 😌 thank you!️'

'When hell freezes over'

Image may contain: Text Message, Text

'I think you have the wrong person'

Image may contain: Text Message, Text

'I'm trying not to think dirty'

Image may contain: Text Message, Text

'Who is this? I don't have this #'

Image may contain: Text Message, Text

'Me?!'

Image may contain: Text Message, Text

'Come you come pick up your shit from my house'

Image may contain: Text Message, Text

So if we've learned anything from this little experiment it's that we might as well shoot our shot this holiday season, because they'll either be creepily down with it, or they'll turn into a little bitch, and we'll know we did the right thing by cutting them off in the first place.
