Scary Monsters and Super Creeps

Bury them there, nobody’s looking… ^^

Just an advisory, to anyone on Social Media who thinks they’re clever enough to diss their friend(s)/colleague(s) without anyone else working out the fact they’re doing it. You know, the one(s) they were as tight as Kim Kardashian’s ass with: suddenly they’ve fallen out over something, and now the anger burns with the heat of a thousand CGI-generated Suns. They think they’re being clever and oh so subtle in their abuse of them… but the thing is, if I can work out what you’re up to from a semi detached in South East England, your plan is failing. You’re also making complete wankers of yourself in the process.

The problem with your cunning scheme is twofold. Firstly, you forget all the other people who saw this event play out from both sides, and have worked out that you’re the one making the storm in the teacup. Secondly, and more importantly, you’ve also failed to grasp that if you’d like people to take you seriously in the future and not consider you whiny drama queens then filling your timeline with thinly-veiled pokes at the person who has aggrieved you is really not the way forward. You’re hoping most people aren’t paying attention. Yeah, well, the problem there is that, as I have discovered to my cost, an incredible number of people do nothing but.

Available to Embroider and for sale on Etsy  REALLY SOON… ^^

Drama is great when you’re not in it. When someone else generates it you’re more than happy to sit back and lap it up, oh, and add your own tuppence worth in the Pot of Recrimination (available in three colours and four styles.) However, when it’s you caught up with the backwash things get really old, very fast. In fact, this is always a good moment to work out whether the people you call friends are indeed actually that to begin with. because, as I’ve said elsewhere today, knowing who those people are is useful for future reference. But most importantly of all, all those people who you think don’t have a clue who you are because of that Great Internet Anonymity you have because you’re not using your real name? It’s not that simple any more. You’d be amazed how clever some people can be in tracking down connections and joining the dots. They’re the same people who lap up the Internet drama. Except now, these people get paid to do this for a living.

So, when you next decide to spread your drama all over cyberspace? Remember how much it smells, how well it sticks and how difficult it can be to clean up afterwards. Oh, and don’t assume because you’ll forget about it all that everyone else will too.

Some people have VERY long memories.
