No easy way to say it but parents-friend on the internet are the most annoying. Yes I said it. I hope this doesn't sound like a personal attack to any parents-friend of mine but generally most of you guys are very irritating. So it's really not personal you see.
I am writing this post as a reminder to myself. If any of these are being violated by myself, anyone who points them out gets a round of drinks on me! (excuse to get myself a drink too.)
1. The Photographer - Oversharing of Baby Photos
Yeah I know your kid is cute. I believe most/every kid is cute especially if it belongs to you but the world is beautiful too. It is like I love girls in bikinis a lot and i share like 50 post a day. How do you feel about that?
2. The Many Faced God - Changing display picture (and some even username) into your kids' photo and name (or anything like iLoveMyBabyPumpkin)
There's a reason why we have display photos. It helps your friend to remember who you are or how you look. I got really confused once when my friend changed her name and picture to her kids'. yes you love her but you do not need to become her. You guys are two individual. You do not need to become her.
3. The Social Media Manager - Creating Facebook Account for your kid
Let them have some fun themselves. Let's not get too excited to expose everything about them just yet okay? Your kid can do things themselves when they grow up.
4. That Irritating Auntie - Asking Everyone "When is it your turn"
Just because you got married and you got a baby doesn't give you the right to keep asking everyone when is it their turn. Remember how much you hated Chinese New Year or any family gatherings because there's always assholes like that? Ya! So don't be that asshole. And also because this. Read This:
5. The Judge - Judging Everyone
We know how we feel good about being daddies and mummies and the importance of being a good role model. Reminder: That is about being a good role model to your own children but not your peers. I do not see the need to go around and keep commenting on everyone's post telling people what is right or wrong or what should not be on the internet. Trust me, I have encountered this so many times. People asking me to take down certain articles or images because there are kids on the internet. I mean fuck you. You control your own kid on what they see and read, not what I am publishing. And worst, to start every sentence with "Being a parent myself, I think that..." No.. I do not care what you think. Go away.
So ya. These actions are freaking irritating. Do you agree? Which is the worst of the lot? And if I've offended you. You are welcome. A real friend will tell you how irritating you are.
