Hilarious Tweets About Packing
How is it possible that stuffing clothes into a 26 x 18-inch bag can bring out so much crazy?
While some of us are graced with flawless packing skills (looking at you Marie Kondo), others (like us) can’t stand packing for a trip. Picking out what clothes we want to wear, let alone how to strategically fold them into a suitcase, can make an otherwise rational person go insane.
Looking to commiserate? We've rounded up some hilarious and accurate tweets about packing. Turns out a lot of us feel the same way…
Seems Like Marie Kondo Would Win This…
If packing were an Olympic sport, we wouldn’t even qualify. Too much endurance, strength and determination involved.
Overpacking at Its Finest
Didn’t you know? Repeating outfits on vacation is a crime. You must bring all options “just in case” or risk being called out for wearing the same shirt in two photos. (The horror!)
Procrastination Is the Name of the Game
Helloooo! It’s T-minus four hours until flight departure! Your suitcase is wide open on the bed with nothing but socks in it (of course, the easiest thing to pack). Yet scrolling through Instagram to check what your brother’s ex-girlfriend's hot cousin’s cat is up to takes priority. We get it.
You'll Regret It If You Don't Pack It
Of course, the hotel won’t have a hair dryer the ONE TIME you decide not to bring it, A Great American Novel.
Knowing our luck it also won’t have bed sheets, pillows, towels, hangers or soap. So throw those in your suitcase while you’re at it.
Tropical Island > Packing
*Looks up plane tickets to the Caribbean.*
Don’t Forget Your Christmas Pjs
Why did we pack four pairs of pants, 10 shirts, eight dresses and five coats to bring home during the holidays when we know we’ll be wearing the same pajamas for a week straight?
Again, “just in case.”
Packing for the Beach Is…Difficult?
All you need for a trip to Mexico is a few bathing suits, sunglasses and money to spend on endless tacos and margaritas. How could it possibly take more than two hours to pack? Oh, because we’re tweeting.
Packing for 18 Days IS Difficult
Packing for 18 days is a bigger and riskier challenge than packing for Mexico, so we'll cut this guy a bit more slack.
Save Room for Souvenirs
It’s always like that, right? You fit everything into your suitcase before the trip. Go to a destination. Then a week later you’re sitting on your bag begging the packing gods to let this thing zip shut. Blame those darn souvenirs.
Anxiety at Its Finest
Packing for a weekend is usually WAY more stressful than packing for two weeks. First of all, what if you change your mind about an outfit, but you can’t do anything about it because you didn’t pack enough?
Or what if you pack too much and your bag is flagged as overweight at the airport and you have to pay all these fees just for a weekend!? BLERG! Packing equals anxiety. Anxiety equals packing.
We’re onto Something Here
It would be so convenient to just pick up a pre-packed bag at the airport. Is this patented or can we start working on it?
Mom’s Gotta Pack Too
Packing for yourself PLUS three kids? Oof.
We want this woman to know that we understand her woes, and we are here for her.
Take a Wine Break
Yes, we agree! It’s important to hydrate and fuel your body with copious amounts of wine and snacks when you’re packing.
Just one more glass. Okay, last one. Wait, why am I still not packed? *hiccup*
Early Bird Gets the Worm
Keys? Got ‘em.
Underwear? At least one pair.
At least you got your packing done early!
Where’s the Power of the Force When You Need It?
“Do or do not. There is no try.” - Yoda.
(Don’t know about you, but this whole “force” thing isn’t working for us either.)
Either way, you’re still putting things away. And no one likes putting things away.
Is There a More Accurate Tweet?
The only thing we’re doing on this flight is eating snacks and cursing the person next to us for taking up the whole armrest.
Is It Hot in Here or Something?
If you’re not sitting on top of your suitcase huffing and puffing, are you even packing? This has to be a better workout than anything Jillian Michaels could offer.
Fine. We’ll Get Back to Packing
Okay, okay. We’ll stop scrolling Twitter for hilarious and relatable tweets about packing. Hopefully, we make our flight in two hours … #packingsucks
