Subway wrappers and pinky promises: The best Depop Dramas to come out of lockdown

This truly is our light through the darkness

You know when you’ve been mindlessly scrolling your phone for hours, refreshing and refreshing just for an extra two new tweets or Insta posts from people you don’t really care about. You’ve watched all the Netflix you can. Your eyes feel like they’re going square. The serotonin levels are so low it’s like you had a large night yesterday but really all you did was rewatch Ozark with your mum and there’s nothing large about that. Then you refresh again, just about ready to give up on your phone and resort to staring at a wall for an hour. Refresh. The screen loads. A light in the darkness appears, a saving grace: it’s a fresh Depop Drama. And fuck, it’s FUNNY. The serotonin returns, your will to live is temporarily recharged, you even let out a faint chuckle (the type of chuckle you’d type as HAHAHAHAH but is really more huheh in real life). For a second, life is good again and you forget everything to do with lockdown, low moods, losing the will to live and uh… loronavirus.

So for a jam packed hit of that goodness, all in one punch, here is a collection of the best Depop Dramas to come out of lockdown – and they’re good. The type of Depop Dramas so good they’ll make you think “wow, people really have gone insane in lockdown” and “how do these people even exist” and also “no really, how do these people even exist, they must be doing these things just to get on Depop Drama at this point”. Oh well, who cares, just read and be at peace for a few minutes. (P.S for a note from Depop Drama themselves on what it’s like running a chaotic account in the most chaotic of times, read to the end.)

@depopdrama told The Tab: “I definitely think drama has been getting crazier. People are using Depop more during the pandemic and it’s created a lot more of a buzz around buying and selling. Obviously with more users signing up to Depop, means more drama!

“The craziest ones have been when someone found a frog in their package, and most recently a mealworm! Depop Drama has had a massive surge of more dramas, so it’s taken a lot longer to go through submissions but we are getting there!”
