A fundamental tenet of the Betch Life is obviously #36 not doing work. But let's talk about the hard worker's fat cousin: the person who tries too hard. We don't just mean the Asian FOBs who've spent more time studying in the library this past week than you did for your entire LSAT, we mean anyone who tries or appears to Try Too Hard (TTH) at anything they do.

Watching people try too hard is kind of like witnessing the trainwreck that will inevitably occur when Suri Cruise starts doing coke. It's uncomfortable to watch, but you're definitely fucking interested in watching it. You think I want to stop reading Jamie's incessant Four Square updates?! We haven't even gotten to last week's Equinox check-ins. Dream on betch.

hermoineWe know you don't really keep up with the news, bitch.

The most annoying thing about people who try too hard is the fact that they don't get that their blatant nauseating effort is a clear sign of their insecurity and desperation. Effort is for Barack Obama and Celebrity Fit Club participants.


So what are some examples that really set a betch off, making her feel like far too much work is being done by non-staff members in her presence? You could otherwise title this post "Our Pet Peeves." Here we go:


Regarding Facebook:

Because we all know that girl you thought was normal until you saw her Facebook...


- excessive solo bikini profile pictures, yes we get it. You used to be fat and now you're not. Put some clothes on, loser.

- excessive Facebook statuses

- any kind of model or glamour shots involved in your default pictures

- muploading food to pretend you eat

- muploading things/stationary objects that aren't humorous or entertaining but are rather meant to brag

- muploading while shopping, put that fucking Hermes bag away we DGAF.

- saying I love you or I miss you on your boyfriend's wall in addition to the inevitable countdown to when you'll see each other next. We get it, you want that bitch who thinks your boyfriend is hot to think you're SO in love, but if I wanted to throw up when I looked at my news feed, I'd look at your 'Habitat for Humanity 2011' album!


Social Media & Online Presence:


- excessive use of Four Square

- excessive commentary on blogs

- excessive bragging tweets, particularly about your job and/or praise that others give you. OMG I'm so excited that your coworker told you that you look like Angelina Jolie. Please tell everyone on Facebook and Twitter just in case there's someone out there who cares.




- owning a bright red car, particularly a convertible, with a vanity plate. You might as well wear a sign around your neck that says 'Please think I have money.'

- owning too much monogrammed shit

- brand name dropping, see Pam of RHOBH

the officeClassic Cornell TTH

Regarding Image and Appearance:


- excessive tanning in winter without going on vaca, or any obvious tanning without vacation

- too much daytime makeup

- wearing a lot of makeup to the gym or carrying too much makeup on you, like if you're carrying an eyelash curler to a bar, you have self esteem issues.

- running a marathon or advertising that you are

- excessive use of iPhoto editing for retouch purposes and not just trying to be artsy

- come to think of it, trying to be artsy

- wearing excessive sorority gear


For Guys:


- excessive bragging about partying habits, wealth, career, or other girls he's been with

- insisting he's not a douchebag regardless of the fact that you both know he has no soul

- bragging about skills in bed, if he has to say it it ain't so.

- the occasional bro whose dad owns a hedge fund but he "wants to work elsewhere to make a name for himself"...seriously, that's nauseating.


Regarding Work:


- doing any


In Life:


- reading self help books, taking anything seriously, not lying on your resume, voting

So betches, if you're trying too hard it means you're trying to overcompensate for the fact that you suck. Save the desperate attempts for love and attention for your therapy appointment and remember that if betches wanted to hang out with tools we'd fuck nice guys or be fans of Ryan Seacrest.

    Betches vote. Talking (much less bragging) about voting is TTH, but betches are subtly informed and don’t let anyone walk all over their shit. Betches are in control, and that means making sure to vote. Fat, lazy bitches don’t vote, but Betches don’t fuck around. Exhibit A: Part of keeping bros at bay is making sure that after you black out and accidentally fuck a bro, you have the resources to get an abortion. Bros love making girls get abortions, and there isn’t any single thing less betchy than getting fucking preggo. Guess what helps keep abortion legal? Fucking voting. Betches with an ounce of sense will keep their political agendas in check and therefore, their options open. OBVS this isn’t something you discuss whilst pregaming… but nonetheless, saying that betches don’t vote is just… well… bitchy.

    youre letting people off too easy considering no one actually does any of these things….what about tagging yourself in your own photos, friending everyone in your classes after knowing them for 5 seconds, being “in a relationship” with a specific person (non-joking), etc etc etc

    also using iphoto is TTH…since when?? i suppose theres a level of taking it too far but don’t tell me you put up pics with red eye and shit, this isn’t amateur hour

    totally true. i def know a tth that whines to everyone about how ugly she thinks she is so she can get complements and then takes a photoshoot by herself and tags herself in all of them, is friends with probably every single person in our school and their mother, and is always “married” to some guy no one knows on fb. non betches like this need to realize that the planet would be a better place if they just fell off of it.

    There’s this girl in my class who literally curls her hair every F-ing day for class. There is a fine line between looking weekday-hot and looking like you’re getting ready to go to your high school prom on a tuesday morning. Don’t even get me started on her colored eyeshadow. Did i mention she’s fucking cross-eyed? Loser totally TTH.

    it keeps the rando desperate fb chats at bay. i hate them, there should def be a second level of request on fb for someone to chat you. plus, when you’re relationship’s on fb decent guys who would know to ask you on dates in real life already know you’re off the market- it get can get awkward turning them down, fb relationships really save you some trouble.

    Everyone needs to stop whining about trying/not trying. You all tried to out-betch the head betches and even yourself, so stop trying to be so fucking witty and do something moderately productive with your time. The only fucking issue with this site is the lenience provided in giving too many self-righteous fake betches the opportunity to voice their sad opinions. (It’s time to start a diary(ew) because no one fucking cares). Try making your own (less than average) website and say anything you want. I’m so sick of reading less-than-betchy ways of life.
    Why are you biting the hand that types the feed?

    The post is awesome but the comments always make me laugh at how fucking dumb and vapid people can be. Chill the eff out peeps.
    But go vote because you can’t complain about the government if you can’t take 20 mins out of you’re day to do it. Be more educated than those silly occupy brats.  Btw, you could get out work to vote too.

    I’m really disappointed in this post. I know you guys won’t give a f*ck and that’s OK. I know Betches don’t work, but I don’t think a Betch is a dumb annoying girl who doesn’t do sh*t, i.e., doesn’t vote b/c they are “too cool” to care about the world, live off their daddys, etc. To me a betch is a smart, independent woman who does give a sh*t and who does TTH.

    I know this makes me totes unbetchy… :( Sorry!

    then don’t read this fucking website! just because people may have opinions that are not politically correct does not mean they are not entitled to them. the internet is a platform for all kinds of opinions and satire, especially, need not be sensitive. i don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the betches are as self-deprecating as they are celebratory of the lifestyle/views this website promotes. this website is intended to make people laugh and if you’re not laughing, go read some other blog that does the trick for you. fuck the haters!

    Wasting a bunch of time writing a post about people trying to hard, is the definition of trying to hard. This was probably the most disgusting thing I have ever read in my life. Maybe if the author was an an moderately educated person, they would understand the rewards of effort and focus. Go read a book people!
