36 People Who Came Through When It Counted

Diply 30 Aug 2017

No matter how tight your squad is, they're gonna disappoint you sometimes. I think we've all had people say they'll come to our parties only to bail at the last minute.

That can totally suck, but what keeps them in your circle is the knowledge that you can trust them to step up when you need them the most. Hopefully, they'll meet that challenge as well as the people on this list did.

1. Some folks might find this embarrassing, but the point is that he's got this gear on for the right reasons.

And frankly, if you can think of a better time and place to wear this shirt, I'd love to hear it.

2. This is a good reminder that there's not just one time when their support really counts.

There's nothing like knowing someone always has your back through the big steps in life.

Awesome dreads are optional in this process but still encouraged.

3. OK, maybe it's not always desirable for friends to enter panic mode when someone's a few minutes late but it is kind of nice.

It's kind of like when Mom frantically texts you when something happens to someone who kinda looks like you.

4. We can learn from this. Sometimes doing right by our friends involves doing some weird stuff.

Although, there is something really satisfying about barking at whoever's trying to invade our doggo's space.

It might make things awkward with the mailman, though.

5. OK, so it's toally melting my heart to watch him step up and help these kids during a serious disaster.

6. So, not only did bae come through and raise the bar with this gift but he even did it earlier than expected.

Instagram | @kalesalad

Does that mean he's got something even bigger planned when the anniversary actually hits? Sounds like a keeper.

8. Haha, I bet there are a lot of people looking at this and wishing their principals were this rad.

9. The word "haters" gets thrown around a lot, but this is someone you definitely want in your corner when they really show up.

The sting of someone's dumb potato photoshop feels like a much smaller deal when people's compliments get this specific.

10. Not only is this way too adorable but it's a rare example of a dog outfit that actually benefits the dog.
