21 Signs You're The Squidward Of Your Friend Group

SpongeBob's laughter makes you want to punch something.

"SpongeBob SquarePants" has been every kid's spirit animal and every parent's worst nightmare since the TV show started back in 1999. Kids loved SpongeBob's limitless enthusiasm for flipping burgers, while grown-ups cringed at his obnoxiously loud chuckles -- almost exactly like Squidward Tentacles does.

Even if you were all about SpongeBob when you were 6, you probably find yourself relating more and more to Squidward as you grow up. This isn't a bad thing! Squidward is a serious realist who is passionate about music and takes no bullsh-t. That's pretty awesome if you ask us.

Here's how you know you're slowly but surely becoming a Squidward:

  1. You have a serious resting bitchface

    Fortunately this comes with many, many underrated benefits. Use your resting bitchface to your advantage!

  2. Sarcasm is your specialty

    This goes hand-in-hand with the bitchface.

  3. You'd rather read than interact with people you don't know or like

    When you're dragged to a party you don't want to go to, it's wayyy easier to hole up in the corner with a magazine than to make forced conversation with strangers.

  4. You dream of being famous...

    But let's be real, who doesn't secretly dream of these things?

  6. You can be a little overdramatic at times

    It's OK. We all have our moments.

  7. When you're stressed out, you nap

    You can't freak out about failing your exams if you're napping. Maybe after some shuteye you'll feel calm enough to hit the books.

  8. You're single AF

    As much as you complain about it, you're kinda happy that way. Your life is pretty awesome as is.

  9. You don't like routine...

  10. ...unless you're the one who sets it
    Nickelodeon

    You make time to do the things you love, like binge-watching Netflix.

  11. You hate when people disturb your "me" time

    Your private time is sacred. It's not that you don't enjoy going out and being social; you just need some time to yourself, too.

  12. You care about physical fitness

    I'm not saying you go to the gym every day and have a six-pack. I'm just saying you care about it enough to think about hitting a spin class every now and then.

  13. You also have weaknesses

    Who wants pizza at 2 a.m. on a Friday night? You do. We ALL do.

  14. You're easily irritated
    Nickelodeon

    Sometimes you wish everyone ever would just go away. This feeling usually passes within a few minutes.

  15. You feel perpetually exhausted
    Nickelodeon

    Ugh. Is this what being a grown-up feels like?

  16. You're fiercely competitive
    Nickelodeon

    You can't help it. Winning just feels so damn good.

  17. It takes a lot to impress you
    Nickelodeon

    This is a good thing! It means you have high expectations and refuse to settle.

  18. You're not a morning person
    Nickelodeon

    I mean, most of us aren't.

  19. Music keeps you going
    Nickelodeon

    Whether you're an aspiring musician like Squidward or just walk around everywhere with your headphones in, there's always a song playing inside your head.

  20. You pretend to give zero f--ks...
    Nickelodeon
  21. ...but it's not true at all
    Nickelodeon

    It's hard for you to admit that you care about something or someone, but you know what to say when it matters the most.
