18 Times Friends‘ Chandler Bing Summed Up Life as a Twenty-Something

Everybody has that one Friends character who just gets them. And it makes sense — the six leads are archetypes in and of themselves: Joey Tribbiani's the playboy, Pheobe Buffay's the “weird one,” Rachel Green's the girly-girl, Monica Geller's the control freak, Ross Geller is the nerd, and Chandler Bing is… well, Chandler Bing. Can you guess which one has me screaming “SAME!” at my computer screen? Yep, Mr. Bing himself.

What can I say? Something about the idea of being a “data transpondster” has me waking up on the right side of the bed, and walking around with a little extra pep in my step.
