For 10 glorious years, we watched Monica, Chandler, Joey, Phoebe, Ross, and Rachel navigate their twenties and thirties. As a result, we’ll admit we’ve used their situational comedy on more than one occasion to justify whatever we want to do at the time. We say things like, "Rachel quit her job and she was fine," or "If Joey can eat only pizza and sandwiches, so can I.” See how this can quickly become a rabbit hole of bad calls? The truth is, Friends is chock full of things we shouldn’t really do. But, since our fictional BFFs did them, it somehow all becomes acceptable behaviour. Ahead, 20 lessons we’re running with because we saw them happen on Friends.
