The six types of people you might meet at birthday parties

Two words: Party pooper.

Ahhh, birthday parties. You usually expect a nice reunion with your closest friends, sipping wine and making banter. But they almost always turn out to be a messy, drunk, and noisy affair. You are bound to meet all sorts of people at birthday parties, and here are the worst of the worst.

 

1. The 'DJ'

What is a party without music, right? Sadly, after spending money on other necessities such as location, food and alcohol, not much budget is left to hire a proper DJ.

No worries! There will always be someone with a “dope” playlist on his laptop who is more than happy to provide music for the party.

If you do not like the music they are playing, well, good luck. These “music connoisseurs” will defend their laptop as fiercely as the Indonesian government defending their forest fires.

HOW A CONVERSATION WITH THEM USUALLY GOES.

2. The animal whisperer

At every house party, there will always be that one person at a party who only talks to the house pet. Does he have confidence issues talking to people or can he really speak to animals? We will never know.

AT LEAST THE HOUSE PET IS KEPT ENTERTAINED FOR THE NIGHT.

3. The 'bro'

Nobody knows who he is and no one knows who invited him, not even the host. Nevertheless, the ‘bro’ makes his way around by being extra friendly and calling everyone his bro. Their energetic presence is great for the party but after a while, you realise that he is just freeloading.

WHAT GOES ON IN MY HEAD WHEN TALKING TO ‘BROS’.

4. The ex

So, you just broke up a couple of weeks ago and your birthday is coming up. Seems like a good idea to invite your ex, right? I mean, you guys did have something special and despite what your friends say, you still want to share your special day with them.

But when your ex shows up on your birthday, you start to exchange awkward handshakes and smiles. Add partying and alcohol into the mixture and jealously will soon surface, resulting in bad decisions. Like getting back together.

THE UNOFFICIAL ELEVENTH COMMANDMENT. (OKAY, NOT REALLY BUT YOU GET THE IDEA.)

5. The 'drinker'

Known for having a history of crashing after a few beers, these people are out to prove that they are not weaklings by challenging everyone to drinking games.

However, their brimming confidence is inversely proportionate to their alcohol tolerance – they find themselves throwing up in the toilet before the party even started.

ADDITIONALLY, WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THEM FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT.

6. The noise police

Whether it is a house party, a hotel party or a simple chalet, the walls are thin and there will always be the risk of noise complaints.

Thankfully, there will be someone who voluntarily becomes the noise police. Their shushing does help, but at times, it is exactly their shushing that makes the most noise.

MURPHY’S LAW MUCH?

All in all, no party will be complete without these people ruining it for us. Despite their actions, they never fail in giving us something to laugh about.
