I read this article a few weeks ago and couldn’t stop giggling. It lists 10 people who annoy you Facebook. After reading it, I couldn’t help but to feel like a few were left off the list. The more I thought about it, it became clear that the categories I had in mind might be Grand Strand specific. Let’s see what you think. Do you know any of these people?
1. The beautiful weather reporter
Here’s the deal. So many of the Grand Strand’s residents are from out-of-state. Typically that state is somewhere colder. This Facebook friend has a large number of friends still there, thus it’s obviously fun to update them on how warm it is, typically during a hometown snowstorm. The weather here is beautiful. We got it.
2. The legs and feet at the beach/pool/on a lounge chair girl
The joy of living here is getting to soak in the sun and relax in scenery many of our friends in other areas don’t see very often. It’s awesome that you got some time to enjoy it. No need to show us your toes every single time.
3. The traffic cam
We know 501 is a mess and 17 is crowded. We know that Saturday mornings and late afternoons are an inbound crisis. We also know that Sunday lunch time outbound back up is inevitable. No need to show us the line of cars, just find a way around it. Try 31, 22, Robert Grissom Parkway, and 90.
4. The cocktail photographer
A nice margarita/beer/glass of wine always helps wash away the woes of any week but I’m not sure what conclusion I’m supposed to draw when you photograph and share them. Post a pic once, I give you a knowing nod. Been there, sista. Post a second, I’m like, “Okie doke.” Post a picture of every drink you consume, I’m planning an intervention. It’s cute when you’re on vacation because your friends are thinking, “She deserves to enjoy!” When you live here it”s cause for concern.
5. The beach picture person
Yeah, yeah, yeah…you live at the beach. But do you see those living elsewhere sharing pictures of their backyard all the time with captions like, “Ahhh…paradise” and “Just another Saturday morning”? I’m the first to agree that we have an ah-mazing landscape in these parts, but enough already. We got it. Don’t be obnoxious. Okay?
Note to hotels and other hospitality businesses who post beach photos every single day, please at least use photos that are of local scenes. I’m pretty sure I spotted one taken somewhere like Hawaii the other day. We’re on to you.
Have more to add to the list?
PS. This was totally done just for fun. You’re welcome to include a certain hyperlocal blogger who does a lot of sharing other businesses’ posts and is a victim of frequent typos. That’s me. I can handle it. Hey, speaking of Facebook, care to “like’ me? :-p
