Why I loathe social media in the summer

I know, I know, I promised vacation deets today. I really wanted to show off my fun time off the radar but something really irked me and I needed to vent about it. It is that time of year (Summer) where social media really REALLY annoys me. I am sure some of you are going to read this and roll your eyes (and that's ok) but I needed to get this off my chest before I un-friend everyone and that wouldn't be fun either. (This post isn't meant to offend anyone, these are just my opinions. Everyone is different and you may disagree but that is okay to my friend!)

The first thing that absolutely drives me bonkers is all of the season finale spoilers! I really hate to bitch about this one but seriously, NOT everyone can watch a show when it airs. Plus you have all the people in other time zones who have no choice but to wait. Please refrain from immediately telling the world who died or what crazy shit went down. I DIDN'T SEE IT YET! THANKS!

The next thing that I could live without is everyone on social media becoming a meteorologist. "OMFG It is SO hot outside! I can't even deal! It needs to cool down!" Okay people we all know its hot outside. It may even be hot inside depending on your living situation. But the point is we had a really cold winter all over the USA and now it is warm and everyone is crying about it. Take a chill pill! (Literally!)



I love taking vacations over the summer just as much as everyone else, but seriously do we need to do a day by day countdown? We get it, you are excited about going to Mississippi to visit your BFF from kindergarden (Yes I just made fun of myself :) but you do not need to post about it everyday for 4 weeks straight.

Speaking of counting down to a vacation, you also get the "I need to get in shape" posts along with "I am going to work out now and look hot for my vacation" which is in 4 weeks as we learned from previous posts.  I get it, we all want to look good for our summer vacations, but unfortunately this usually can't be fully achieved in one month like some magazines claim. You need to have a healthy lifestyle year round if you want to look "hot" in that little bikini.

 The last thing I really get annoyed at is all of the meaningless full day events posts. "I went to 27 BBQ's today and only ate one hotdog but I think I went swimming in a lake, a pool and a pond. It was fun. I will go and do it again tomorrow but this time I might try a hamburger." Must we know every detail of your summer day? This is how you get stalkers ya know!

I hope you found some humor in some of these summer social media hates of mine. I really don't like to complain. but after 2 of my tv shows being spoiled this week I was absolutely steaming at the ears.

What are some of your social media pains in the butts? Anything annoy you? Share below!

  1. This is so funny and so so so true! Especially the weather one! I also find with major sporting events like Wimbledon we can see who's just hit the ball or who's missed a shot without even looking at the TV! Haha x

    1. I had a moment and had to blog about it but you're right.. All you need is social media and you know everything that's going on in the world without lifting the remote for your tv. Thanks for stopping by! Heading to your blog next!

  2. Hilarious! You're so right! We complain that it's too cold in the winter, but then complain when it's too hot in the summer. I'll try to limit the number of "too hot" posts I do:) I'm visiting from the Treasure Tromp link up and wanted to say hi!

  3. Ha! I almost posted about my fitness goals on Instagram the other day, and then I thought about it for 2 seconds and decided no one should care except me. And I went about my day and so did the rest of the world. Amazing how that works!

    1. It is amazing the things people do post over and over again. I can understand if its an achievement or something they are really proud of, but come on people, do not tell me about every detail of your day in one post! There are blogs for that! :)

  4. It really is amazing how much people talk about the weather and generally how bad/great it is, especially at work. But I guess it is a safe topic that anyone can discuss. Love the kitties:)

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Weather is definitely the easy topic to discuss! I guess it just gets over the top when someone acts like its never happened before. And yes the kitties are so cute! I love that gif!
