I am so fucking sick of everyone taking useless, asinine pictures all the time I am about to smash someone’s camera.
This is not aimed at people who are thoughtful with their photography, I am talking about the morons who must disrupt my fun on a Saturday evening every 10 minutes so I can pose with someone for a stupid goddamn picture. “Oh wait, you looked away, lets take it again…did the flash go off? Just a sec…” “Can’t you see I am trying to have a chat and a drink here you dozey cunt, get the fuck outta here with your 15 snapshots an hour photo BS.”
Then comes Monday. Deuce Dropper was tagged in 57 photos.
Guess what, 95% of them are in the same goddamn place with the same fucking people. Luckily for me I am mixed in with a few ke-ai shots of your nephew from earlier in the day (same as last week), a bunch of you and your friends holding up two fingers like a bunch of nonces (can we finally quit this habit? seriously, nothing makes me hate someone quicker), a couple with you standing in front of some barely recognizable place (“very famous in Taiwan”) in a frozen stance like a pre-teen about to wet him/herself, and about five hundred shots of lame ass food. Oh look, it is the salad app from the Japanese restaurant, a cherry tomato, lettuce AND corn nibblets! “Better take a shot from every possible angle. Oh yeah, put a coin down so the viewer can see it to scale.” “Oh wow! is that a burger? From The Diner no less!!! Quick capture this special moment in time so we can pass it down to our grand children and let them know what a special day it was. Don’t forget to snap a shot of their fresh squeezed OJ! Did I bring my tripod? Damn! I knew I forgot something.”
The Deuce has had it up to here (hand right about at forehead height) with this digital camera chicanery. I long for the days of photo development, where people took thoughtful photos because they only had twenty seven shots in a roll. Now, fuckin hell, it is a total shit storm.
So what is the etiquette? Do allow people to be extremely rude with their photography and just deal with it or do I tell them to fuck off and leave them confusingly upset?
