WHY ROSS IS THE FRIEND NOBODY DESERVED (BECAUSE HE'S THE WORST)

I know I am forgetting a million things because ROSS IS THE WORST EVER & I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SPACE IN MY BRAIN TO REMEMBER ALL THE SHITTY THINGS HE DID
  1. Oh my god, WHERE DO I EVEN START
  2. Literally EVERYTHING having to do with Rachel
    Stay tuned for my 500 page manifesto, Why Rachel Should Have Ended Up With Joey, coming to an Internet near you in 2017 #controversialopinion
  3. He ALWAYS made his feelings for Rachel her problem
    Whether or not they were together, everything he felt, every asshole thing he did, literally everything was her fault as far as he was concerned.
  4. He wasn't really in love with Rachel, just with the fantasy of Rachel he made up in his head when they were teenagers
  5. That fucking list
    'shallow' & 'just a waitress' please diaf
  6. Never respected Rachel's passions or believed her career was as valid as his
  7. Destroyed his relationship with Rachel by being an insecure asshat who couldn't handle her having a male work friend, then blamed Rachel
  8. Dated Rachel's sister even though it made her uncomfortable
    Such a double-standard
  9. Said the wrong name at his & Emily's wedding & then BLAMED RACHEL
    who yes, had initially come to London to stop the wedding, but instead kept her feelings to herself when she saw Ross was happy AKA DIDN'T MAKE HER FEELINGS HIS PROBLEM
  10. Didn't annul his marriage to Rachel when she asked him to, then tried to trick her into moving in with him
  11. Was all douchey about Rachel not wanting to marry him after he got her pregnant
    I don't blame him for the pregnancy, though, because they were using protection. Sometimes these things just happen.
  12. Was a huge asshole about Joey having a crush on Rachel even though a) Joey wasn't planning on doing anything about it, & b) he & Rachel hadn't dated in YEARS so his feelings on the matter were irrelevant
  13. Was a huge asshole about Joey helping out Rachel when she was pregnant because "I'm the father" even though Joey was just being a good friend & in no way trying to encroach on Ross's position as said father
  14. Was a huge asshole about Joey accidentally proposing to Rachel
  15. Hid a message from a guy trying to get ahold of Rachel. Was a douchebag about it when she found out
  16. Kissed Charlie, who Joey was still dating; then flipped out when he found out Joey had kissed Rachel, who Ross hadn't dated in over half a decade!!!!!
  17. Expected Joey to be cool with him dating Charlie (which Joey was because JOEY IS THE BEST), but was never cool with Joey dating Rachel
  18. Asked Rachel to get off the plane even though he KNEW this was the career opportunity of her dreams because she had literally TOLD HIM THAT LIKE A WEEK EARLIER
    Because his feelings always trumped Rachel's. ALWAYS
  19. Also was a huge jerk to the other friends at various times (such as letting his parents hate Chandler so he wouldn't have to tell them he smoked pot in college; and not supporting Phoebe when she thought a cat was her mom) but that's all kind of incidental tbh
  20. Fifty million other things I'm forgetting
  21. WAS THE BIGGEST NICE GUY ASSHAT DOUCHESHNOOZLE ABOUT RACHEL
    I know this wasn't supposed to be a list about how much I hate Ross/Rachel but my god everything about that storyline & Ross's part in it is THE WORST
