I consider myself a pretty happy-go-round person and I don’t really dwell on the negative or worry too much about things that don’t really effect me. However, there are some times a lady can only handle so much!
I am going to go ahead and blame social media for my current inability to handle things that don’t seem significant in the long run. With everyone having access to tell the world everything and anything at any moment, certain ‘common’ things people seem to do becomes even more evident. I’m going to guess it’s the over-exposure of certain behaviour and the ability to do it so easily that makes it seem (I hope) more common than they really are, but I kind of worry.
I know there are things that I do that annoy people, probably even far enough to warrant a bullet point on their own list like this, but I have near hit the boiling point of some “tiny” annoyances and I could totally live way happier if they became less common!
1) FML everything!
“Oh, I cut my toenail too short… FML“
The drama that follows such a simple thing will always make me roll my eyes. The ‘FML’ should be reserved for the real things that make you feel your life is f*cked.
2) Judge the ‘judgers’ before they judge
“The ‘sanctimommies‘ are going to have a field day with what am letting my kids do”
Name-calling someone you think is going to question you = no better.
3) Parents who post photos of their kids covered in poop
“OMGee, look what Billy just did. He’s covered in his own poop” … as I post for the entire world to see
Dude, it’s gross. Clean your kid up because 1) it’s gross 2) NO ONE wants to see it, promise 3) everything lives on the internet
4) Complaints about how ‘fat’ they are when they are not even close
“I look like a total cow” … as I stand here in my size 6 jeans
I am guilty of some self-hate coming out in the world, but I try to be careful about how often I say it. Some people, while I understand some people may be dealing with a body dysmorphic issue, some people say it to get a compliment & that’s just annoying.
5) Making up facts to support some obnoxious idea
“95-98% of people do [blank] for the wrong reason.”
Unless you have a source to back up your fact, it just makes you look stupid and your point moot.
6) People stealing copyrights & fighting it even though they are wrong
“Well, it was on Google Images so I am able to use it however I want.”
I had this happen to me over 6 times a few weeks ago — over 2 images that I created and own copyright to. A few people contacted to remove did so kindly, but the majority fought me over it and even claimed that I was the one at fault. Ignorance is no excuse for being an as$!
