9 Relatable Situations Told By Ross Geller

While watching the TV show "Friends," I have become fond of the adorable, goofy and intelligent Ross Geller. Not only is Ross hilarious, he is also a completely relatable character. Here are nine moments where Ross Geller demonstrates dealing with everyday situations:

1. Talking To Someone You Hate

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636034473705903249-1482083377_th%3F%26id%3DOIP.M513abb5a158ff0655bb9d0e82719bc0eo2%26w%3D300%26h%3D232%26c%3D0%26pid%3D1.9%26rs%3D0%26p%3D0%26r%3D0&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=37&h=fcd79d103f9fe754c54b23e27d584c97bc2428a3d1bf52250a8e18cf746c6b1d&size=980x&c=4148180197 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636034473705903249-1482083377_th%253F%2526id%253DOIP.M513abb5a158ff0655bb9d0e82719bc0eo2%2526w%253D300%2526h%253D232%2526c%253D0%2526pid%253D1.9%2526rs%253D0%2526p%253D0%2526r%253D0%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D37%26h%3Dfcd79d103f9fe754c54b23e27d584c97bc2428a3d1bf52250a8e18cf746c6b1d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4148180197%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

We all have at least one person in our lives who we cannot stand. Somehow this is always the person who loves to brag about anything and everything in his or her life. Ross knows the civil way to respond to this obnoxious bragging.

2. Lunch

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F63603447237840461971739291_tumblr_mkflnjVkMJ1rjvi9po1_400.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=304&h=a1a17dde7097d229416bed6540d64355db68271ecc2545ace262cb3a43e101d0&size=980x&c=3378804745 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F63603447237840461971739291_tumblr_mkflnjVkMJ1rjvi9po1_400.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D304%26h%3Da1a17dde7097d229416bed6540d64355db68271ecc2545ace262cb3a43e101d0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3378804745%22%7D" expand=1]

Lunchtime often brings relief to a tired soul. Whether lunch includes chatting with some friends or silent, self-reflection, good food is required. That is until someone throws away your favorite sandwich.

3. Tanning For Prom

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636034465571343082522946183_tumblr_mdn05mZowi1qzydh2o1_r1_250.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=217&h=c03407e96acf7e30367a75c9403ea35e412395d100a5bd5d5b9d88bf41638a86&size=980x&c=4274581554 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636034465571343082522946183_tumblr_mdn05mZowi1qzydh2o1_r1_250.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D217%26h%3Dc03407e96acf7e30367a75c9403ea35e412395d100a5bd5d5b9d88bf41638a86%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4274581554%22%7D" expand=1]

How is it that during prom week, girls who are so pale they get compared to snow and milk suddenly become bronze goddesses? The tanning salons clearly get a lot of business during prom season. Yet, there are several cases in which girls must have counted "Mississippi" and made the same mistake as Ross.

4. English Grammar

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636034469435593830-1875060299_tumblr_m465ooRX3H1rno0d4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=665&h=545cdbb93f43abae8404b288debdd20e438482432863341ebc5608e47aa9b8ef&size=980x&c=31150022 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636034469435593830-1875060299_tumblr_m465ooRX3H1rno0d4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D665%26h%3D545cdbb93f43abae8404b288debdd20e438482432863341ebc5608e47aa9b8ef%26size%3D980x%26c%3D31150022%22%7D" expand=1]

There is a clear distinction between the contraction, "you're" and the possessive pronoun, "your" and Ross knows it.

5. Embracing Your Nerdy Side

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636034491061633493-1226977115_th%3F%26id%3DOIP.Mb7fd9841dfd8592078ab18f5c242f8e7o0%26w%3D313%26h%3D156%26c%3D0%26pid%3D1.9%26rs%3D0%26p%3D0%26r%3D0&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=340&h=b9eb4d8ff39c4173c63b4147077eadf91e3180f02d132fcfa66e4078a6b74bfc&size=980x&c=1674806235 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636034491061633493-1226977115_th%253F%2526id%253DOIP.Mb7fd9841dfd8592078ab18f5c242f8e7o0%2526w%253D313%2526h%253D156%2526c%253D0%2526pid%253D1.9%2526rs%253D0%2526p%253D0%2526r%253D0%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D340%26h%3Db9eb4d8ff39c4173c63b4147077eadf91e3180f02d132fcfa66e4078a6b74bfc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1674806235%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

No one is better at embracing nerdy quirks than Ross Geller.

6. Lobsters Do Exist

Known as "The Divorce Force," Ross can testify that finding the love of your life is not an easy task. You may have to have a child with a lesbian, say the wrong name at the altar during one of your weddings, sleep with another girl while on a break with your girlfriend, and more before finding the love your life. But one thing is certain, your lobster does exist.

7. Growing Up With Siblings

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636034496356844348-539903272_th%3F%26id%3DOIP.Mdf5650153a788f9c55320803c3563c1do2%26w%3D211%26h%3D205%26c%3D0%26pid%3D1.9%26rs%3D0%26p%3D0%26r%3D0&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=880&h=be75f367abf5a6e53988d951f011141d9b04655c7043dd5c9242eb2051cfbc14&size=980x&c=4209289155 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636034496356844348-539903272_th%253F%2526id%253DOIP.Mdf5650153a788f9c55320803c3563c1do2%2526w%253D211%2526h%253D205%2526c%253D0%2526pid%253D1.9%2526rs%253D0%2526p%253D0%2526r%253D0%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D880%26h%3Dbe75f367abf5a6e53988d951f011141d9b04655c7043dd5c9242eb2051cfbc14%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4209289155%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Ross knows all too well the struggle of growing up with a younger sibling. He understands that when a sibling is home somehow all of the food in the house always seems to disappear.

8. Being An Older Sibling

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636034501932395267-29073128_th%3F%26id%3DOIP.Mf9118b45436f8e38afc8f8e5c1507af8o0%26w%3D299%26h%3D202%26c%3D0%26pid%3D1.9%26rs%3D0%26p%3D0%26r%3D0&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=373&h=633e456f500951db104e88f16db2874ebd1cd1bbaed4b48cf1302e65df9d200a&size=980x&c=1448779390 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636034501932395267-29073128_th%253F%2526id%253DOIP.Mf9118b45436f8e38afc8f8e5c1507af8o0%2526w%253D299%2526h%253D202%2526c%253D0%2526pid%253D1.9%2526rs%253D0%2526p%253D0%2526r%253D0%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D373%26h%3D633e456f500951db104e88f16db2874ebd1cd1bbaed4b48cf1302e65df9d200a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1448779390%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Although your siblings eat all the food, you still love them. Siblings often bicker and argue over little disagreements, but in the end, they would do anything for each other. Ross is the perfect example of a loving, protective older brother.

9. Accepting Fate

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636034503702245486-707369934_tumblr_inline_mgh6npFvXs1r5l7ry.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=156&h=bbf9e05494fc80f1a48faec92b26c39e004e0501f6429108098c1a340e8f3c96&size=980x&c=3109299904 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636034503702245486-707369934_tumblr_inline_mgh6npFvXs1r5l7ry.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D156%26h%3Dbbf9e05494fc80f1a48faec92b26c39e004e0501f6429108098c1a340e8f3c96%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3109299904%22%7D" expand=1]

Sometimes there is no explanation.

These are just nine of my favorite, relatable Ross Geller moments. Don't worry, there are plenty more of his hilarious antics which make him the best character on the show.
