Modern Day Things That **** You Off

Post by Dyched » Fri Aug 07, 2020 7:17 pm

Influencers. Well not all influencers but those that support mental heath. All whilst making social media post (Instagram) of “gifts” they receive from expensive brands. Clothing/items worth £100s. Now I know that’s how they get paid but to me it feels some what wrong to preach about health issue whilst putting some of their 1000s of followers under pressure to try and live up to that. To get items they simply can not afford and make them feel worthless that they can’t. All these “influencers” seem to be doing is use those people “likes” as a self confidence boost. ******* tosspots.

People who try to become famous through reality TV and then complain about the pressure afterwards if they do well or complain if they don't do well and have to get a real job.

'Celebrities' who for some reason think I give a rat turd as to what their political or any other opinion is.

AND the news media who constantly report on said opinions.

I really do not care what Kim Kardashian thinks about anything. As an example.

These proms nights when 16 year olds leave school and fanny around in tuxedos and ball gowns as though they have just emerged from the most torturous and only part way through second decade of their spotty lives and need to show off as though they are liberated from hell. Their poor parents are embarrassed into forking out for a limo because Tarquin or Trixiebell want and need to be seen like some fourth rate extra in a low budget Hollywood film.
When I was their age I went to the Offy with a forged note from dad saying please give James 4 bottles of Strongbow for his grandmas wake.

The word "across" used where it is clearly not the right word in the right place.

EG: "We'll keep you across this story" WTF!!!?
