Okay...maybe not THIS ratchet, but you get the point...some of your friends are ratchet as hell....and if you don't have any, it might just be you! That's not always a bad thing; Madame Noire came up with a list of 10 reasons you need ratchet friends...here's my favorite 5...
They'll have your back
Fighting might not be a ratchet's first plan of action; but please believe, she's certainly not opposed to throwing a few 'bows when it comes down to protecting her own. And if you're a true friend, that includes you.
They'll Keep It Real
Just because your friend is the ratchet one, doesn't mean she'll be the only person who needs to be checked occasionally in your friendship. When you are acting brand new, or bougie, bordering on stuck up, your ratchet friend will be there to remind you, in very blunt terms, that it's time for you to bring it back
She reminds you life is not always that deep
If you're the type of person who finds that you're a bit more anxious than you should be, that you're sweating the small stuff and stressing all the time, your ratchet friend is there to balance all of that tension out with her penchant for fun and foolishness.
The one thing you'll learn from having ratchet friends is what not to do in life. Your ratchet friends will always have some sorted tale about how they fought some chick at the club, how she smashed a dude she had no business messing with or how she cussed out that rude heffa at the DMV. Either way, your friend's escapades will paint a very clear picture about the types of situations you need to avoid by any means necessary.
How does that saying go, woman cannot live on refinement alone? Not really but you get my gist, every life needs some balance. If you're grinding your way through law school, every once in a while, you need to be able to take off those glasses and put your books away. Your ratchet friend will be the one to make sure you don't become a boring old fuddy duddy. She'll be the one to dig through your closet for the freak'em dress tucked in the corner and she'll be right on the dance floor with you twerking something.
