I’ve Already Done That

I’ve been doing this blog for three years now and I’m constantly looking out for new things to write about. An idea for a topic will pop into my head, I’ll jot down a note or two to remember it, and I’ll let the idea germinate in the back of my mind until I have time to type it out. But I’m at the point now that I have to search Critically Rated first to see if I’ve already written about something. And a lot of the times I’ll realize that I’ve already done that, then I have to find something new to write about. That’s ok though, it helps keep me motivated to find something else to write about. That’s how this post was created. I wanted to write about battling for the armrest. I had it all figured out. Too bad I already wrote about fighting for the armrest in 2012. I needed a new topic. So I wrote about how I’ve already done that. And now you’ve read it. My work here is done… for now.

When You Think You Clicked a Link But You Didn’t

I hate when you think you clicked a link but you didn’t. You’ll be on Facebook and see an interesting link that somebody shared. You click it and wait for it to load. After a couple of seconds you’ll start to realize that something is wrong and nothing is happening. You’ll wait a few more seconds because you don’t want to be impatient. Then it starts to dawn on you that you never double-clicked. You didn’t access the link. You’re waiting for nothing because you didn’t do anything. All you can do is pretend like it didn’t happen and re-click the link. You might want to click it a few times just to be sure. The worst part is that the article is never worth reading. You wasted all that time waiting for it to load for nothing. You’re a few minutes closer to death and you have nothing to show for it. Especially if you were waiting for this article to load. Good job.

Misusing the Like Button

A lot of people don’t know how to use the Like button on Facebook. Some people seem use it as confirmation that they have seen your post instead of actually liking the content. For example, you’ll post about how you’re sad because your dog died and five people will like your status. What exactly do they like? The fact that you’re sad or that your dog is dead? Sometimes you’ll say something like, “Feeling trapped and want to get out of the city for a few hours. Anyone want to go on a day trip?” You’ll get a notification and think that you have a partner in crime, but it’s just some douche that clicked the Like button for no reason. You asked a question and didn’t get a response, but apparently your question is likable, so that’s nice. The Like button should only be used if you actually like what you’re Liking, otherwise you’ll seem insensitive or stupid.
