Navigating the social world of elementary school can be rough. Who will you forge friendships with in order to trade pudding for Gushers? Which fellow 4th graders will you band together with to rule the playground?
And sleepover parties, of course, are a whole other quagmire of conformism and thirst for popularity.
Thinking back to this harrowing time during childhood, one young woman on Yik Yak described the major slumber party drama that went down when she was 9 years old. Essentially, a girl who was the queen bee of sleepovers (let’s call her Mandy, because it’s always a Mandy who becomes your school’s empress of catty attitude) would consistently throw the birthday bash of the year, and everyone wanted an invite.
But the list you really wanted to be on was for the after-party sleepover. The Yik Yak poster describes it as a Bachelor-like rose ceremony, with attendees waiting tensely to hear if Mandy called their name, meaning they were allowed to stay the night. All was good until the year our protagonist was not extended this special invite.
That’s when she decided it was time to dethrone Mandy. The whole story has been preserved in screenshots that recently made the rounds on Tumblr.
Jamie and Hannah, the original defectors. Soon after, the legions of other scorned girls who just wanted to share secrets and eat s’mores in comfy pajamas. As our hero writes, she wants to remembered as “the bitch who tore [Mandy] down from her throne.”
Forget Game of Thrones, this sleepover drama is way more savage.
