Why are mostly best friends such assholes to each other more than other friends?

These two girls I know in class are so horrible to each other. They call each other names, they are brutally honest and blunt with each other, fight (playfully) and would stop on each other’s feet. When each get hurt, they laugh at each other but they don’t laugh at their other friends when they get hurt. One of the girls told me that she slapped her best friend in the face because she was tired of her complaining about the guy that doesn’t like her and never will. When she told her she slapped her and said, “GET OVER HIM ALREADY! GOD!” and didn’t pamper her with “it’s okay” or sugarcoated soft crap. I told her that was cruel but she said sometimes you need to slap some sense into someone and as her best friend, she’s gotta give her some tough love and be a little mean sometimes.
I would scold my friend but got slapped them. Well maybe

I am British and for my best friends we say really nasty things to each other as an endearment, I think it's a way of showing trust to each other.

[@11430,TheSunisout] you guys are mean but it sounds funny but I don’t understand how people are not offended by it. My siblings were like that with the family and us. They said they do it to me tomorrow because I’m a crybaby but they pick on me the most.

[@1023345,DizzyLizzy94] it’s just banter, I think sometimes people don’t get it, especially on here at times. 😬

Well not all best friends with this way. I mean they do it because they’re a lot more comfortable around them in there like brother and sister. My friends and I talk shit to each other and we do insult each other for fun but that’s how we bond. It wouldn’t be any fun if we never picked on each other or give each other a hard time. If we didn’t they were not best friends Lol. Sometimes is good to give each other a hard time. Hahaha
If anyone tries to hurt me or my best friends they’re gonna wish they never met me. Just saying.

Depends on people’s personalities, I treat my friends with respect.
Because they are like family and will forgive each other and speak their mind and be themselves around each other .. Not all friends are that real with each other tho .. Those are extremely thick with each other and playful.. Maybe you are shy and arent used to their overly extroverted hyper personality types

[@209334,MadBossFTW] you kind of have a point I don’t. I mean she’s always so sweet to me and some of the others but with her best friend she is MEAN and says brutally blunt things in her face.
