What’s the most you’ve gone out of your way to help a close friend? Have you taken them out to a movie or a meal when they were feeling low? Have you helped them move? Have you, maybe, thrown on fake facial hair to hide out while a friend was on a date, so that you could spy on them and make sure everything went okay? Sure, that last one may seem like an outlier in the realm of things to do for your bestie. But you aren’t Georgia Hoyer. The 18-year-old super-sleuth and best friend extraordinaire clearly took a cue from 80s sitcoms, and Disney Channel teen shows when she went incognito for her friend Dawsyn Eubanks’ date.
The story starts with Hoyer on her way to work. Already out and ready for a busy day, her plans were abruptly changed when she received a call from her boss telling her she wouldn’t be needed. While most of us would maybe just head home and lounge around on our new found day off, Hoyer shifted gears immediately to her other, 24-hour job: Being a dedicated friend to Dawsyn Eubanks.
Hoyer reached out to Eubanks to see what she was up to, and her friend replied saying that she was going on a date. Again, this is where most of us normals would shrug, choose a relaxing activity, and postpone our friend duties to a more convenient time. But Hoyer wasn’t about to let a little thing like her friend having a date get in the way of her total devotion. Instead, she went to a costume store near her work and purchased a fake mustache so that she could spy on her friend and make sure her date was going okay. During the date, Eubanks got a text asking why she wasn’t eating her food, and Hoyer quickly revealed herself by telling Eubanks to look behind. Eventually, Eubanks had to tell her date about the whole thing because she couldn’t stop from laughing. The whole text exchange, with pictures, was shared on Twitter by Eubanks, where it quickly got over 200,000 likes and over 400,000 likes.
In the end, Eubanks is just happy that her friendship has inspired so many others, citing the popularity of her post and the best friends everywhere who seem to totally relate. She told Buzzfeed: “I just love how people admire our friendship. I also always see people tagging their best friends, which makes me happy because that means they have super-strong friendships too.”
She, of course, must be talking about the countless responses to her post with messages like these:
