You must have spent a week planning for Christmas with bae, curving all your side chicks just to savour Christmas together, then on Sunday morning bea calls and be like
"Hello boo, mummy says the house fellowship will hold in our parlour and I will take the praise and worship"
You'll just be like "house fellow gini?, on Christmas day?"

This is the worst one. Just waking up and seeing your period as a lady on Christmas day! You'll be like " no please, just one more day off"
Mood swing, hormones raging...worst of all, you leave boo hanging in the cold after he must have taken alomo and tramadol. OMG!!
