Inspirational memes, passive-aggressive whingeing, and social justice warrior stuff all make my cursor hover over the block or unfriend buttons.
Kid P posted this video this week of a penguin traveling back to a So. African beach where a man saved him five years ago and the penguin has returned every year.
My response was, "Couldn't the bird put a note in a bottle, flung it into the ocean, and saved himself the trip?"
I will do that to people I know, who know my sense of humor, but post really positive, heart-warming stories. Sometimes their other friends will take offense though. Nice stories balance out the vitriol of social media, but some people see the joy in getting four flat tires on the freeway and that kind of attitude kinda bugs me as disingenuous.
