Everyone is on Snapchat now. It’s a fun way to quickly check in on your friends and favorite personalities. That’s the good part. The bad part is the fact that so many people do horribly annoying things without even realizing they’re being annoying. If you’re doing any of these 10 things, on behalf of everyone, please stop.
1. POSTING JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE BORED
If you’re bored, go look at other people’s posts or maybe read a book or acquire a new life skill. Don’t waste our time posting a boring picture that informs us of how bored you are. If you need something to do, why don’t you use that device in your hand to LEARN LITERALLY ANY INFORMATION THAT’S EVER EXISTED?
2. UNSOLICITED NUDITY
Seriously, guys, stop sending your naked penis to anyone who hasn’t blocked you yet. Absolutely no one wants to see that unsolicited.
3. PICTURES OF YOUR DUMB, BORING FOOD
Food pics get a lot of hate, but if you’re eating some kind of beautiful or rarely seen meal, by all means share that with us. I want to see a pizza that is also somehow a taco. More than anything. This complaint isn’t directed towards boring food sharers. The ones that drive people nuts are the people who insist on posting a picture of every Lean Cuisine they pop out of the microwave. Why would anyone care about this? Your food is not special just because it’s going in your body.
4. PUTTING ON A FILTER AND DOING NOTHING ELSE WHATSOEVER
Guess what? We all have those filters. You don’t need to show us what you look like with each and every one on your face. If you want to do some sort of entertaining bit with it, then that’s wonderful. If you want to stick a filter on someone who doesn’t expect it or on a baby, that’s even better. But absolutely no one enjoys getting a snap of you laughing at yourself over the Puppy Face filter. You’re wasting our time, and every second brings us all closer to death, Puppy Face.
5. THE ASININE, BIZARRELY USELESS PHOTO
I’m honestly not sure why you’re taking photos of random, inanimate objects around your home, but I’m completely baffled by the fact that you’d want to share them with anyone. How am I supposed to respond to this? “Thank you for showing me how you take your cereal to the next level?” I don’t know what to do with this lack of information.
6. THE SELFIE WITH NO CAPTION
It’s just your face! I don’t know if that look is because you’re attracted to me or are so mad that you want to physically harm me. This one is even better when it’s from a complete stranger who sends another one as soon as you open the previous one. It’s an aggressive move with motives we’ll probably never truly comprehend.
7. THE “I’M SO DRUNK LOL” PIC
Oh, cool, you had a drink. That’s the coolest thing ever. Please keep me updated because this definitely sounds like a story I’d like to know more about.
8. OVERUSE OF GEOTAG FILTERS
We get that you’re on vacation, but save some of those photos for your personal album that only you look at in the privacy of your own home. One photo or video per filter will suffice. This is especially annoying if you’re at a concert and you decide to basically stream the entire thing via 10-second clips with a giant filter of the band across the screen. Settle down.
9. SETTING THE PICTURE TIMER FOR WAAAAAYYYY TOO LONG
Look at this picture. How long did it take for you to fully grasp it? Maybe two or three seconds at most? Then why on earth are you putting the timer at 10 seconds? This one is for your own good, because after the first few seconds I’m going to spend the rest of the time judging the cleanliness of your house or noticing all the imperfections in your skin. Is that what you want?? IS IT?
10. THE 27-SNAP STORY ABOUT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
If you thought it was bad getting a single useless snap, just wait until you click on one and see that you have over four minutes of nonsense to sit through. It’s never anything you’d actually enjoy. It’s always of someone sweeping their apartment or standing in line at the airport. As boring as it being at the airport yourself, it’s nothing compared to watching someone else at an airport. You lose all the dizzying highs and lows from actually being at the airport.
