This is an Instagram thing when you share the Dude’s carefully-planned and thought-out cardboard signs to your “stories” on the ‘gram. The thing about these stories, though, is that they go away after a day, so people can’t CONTINUE to see the Dude’s posts.
We have to come to the conclusion that the Dude finds this unacceptable if he’s going through all this effort to tell people to stop it. We don’t really know why other than he doesn’t want people to share it in a way that disappears after twenty-four hours, but that’s about the best we can come up with.
Please Stop Asking
We're sure this has happened to almost everybody that is reading this right now. You're going through life, perfectly happy to be single (or not perfectly happy), and a family member or friend asks if you've been seeing anybody lately. So very often, it's an older family member. They just want what's best for you.
But, if you aren't happy to be single, this can come off as a tough line to take. Our go-to is to ask them if they have anybody in mind. We find that the odds are they don't. On the off-chance they do, maybe that person will end up being someone special.
Doesn't Mean We Can't Keep Saying It
Yeah, we get that this little line is overplayed if you're saying goodbye to somebody a day or two before New Year's Day, and sure, we know that humor comes from the unexpected. That means that eventually, people will get more and more tired of this “joke,” though it's not even really a joke.
Still, it's just so much fun to say it! As we said, it's barely a joke – more a clever line that brightens the place. It doesn't even have to make people laugh. It's just there to spice up a convo. Anyway, we are pretty sure it will be heard next 31st of December too.
Something We All Understand
Once social media started coming into its own – from Myspace to Facebook to Twitter and on and on – we started seeing more and more meals showing up in pictures. At first, this was allowed, but as time went on, many people started to get more and more annoyed that all we were seeing was just someone's dinner over and over.
Now, the number of people who hate this kind of behavior probably outnumbers the people who actually do it every time they make a meal or go out to eat. Still, Dude With Sign drives it home, pointing out that you should just eat.
Where We Can Safely Ignore Them
TikToks are a newer thing when it comes to social media, but it's already one of the most popular formats. They have a certain feel to them, almost like a scent that has been oozing out into other platforms. Nowadays, it's simple to see TikToks on Twitter, Instagram, and elsewhere. Even ignoring the fact that TikTok is clearly a China psyop program, these TikToks pretty much regularly rot the brain.
Imagine if some eighteen-year-old tried to tell you what the world was like as you, at thirty-five or something like that, watch during your lunch break. It's just hard to take it seriously.
