8 types of people who need to get in the bin immediately... if not sooner

Stop using ‘Be rude not to’ on Instagram.

THERE ARE SOME weeks when it seems like your nerves are particularly frayed and your tension levels are running at an all-time high.

Everyone is stressed, we’re all exhausted, you’ve lost your Leap Card, and other people are not making life any easier for us.

The smallest thing is likely to send you over the edge, and typically it’s these weeks when you tend to encounter a handful of some of the biggest headmelts in your social circle.

You know, like the following…

1. The person who captions photos of themselves on Instagram using inspirational quotes.

‘She believed she could, so she did.’  Calm down Sandra, you’re lying on a hammock, not scaling Everest.

2. The person who still uses the term ‘Be rude not to’ on Instagram.

Yeah, we get it. You’re having a pint.


3. The person who insists on phoning you even though they know you’re allergic to verbal communication.

Why must you hear my voice? What are you so obsessed with me?

4. The person who actually tags their friends in generic posts about people who are bad influences.

“Laura, they know you well!”


5. The person who knows exactly what they’re doing with their passive-aggressive messaging.

Don’t “K.” me, hun.

6. The person who makes you sit through a four-minute YouTube clip of something that’s just not funny.

And when they don’t take the hint and keep staring at you for a reaction? No, f*ck off.

7. The people who pause making your burrito so they and their colleagues can have a quick nose at an Insta post.

No, no, you guys take your time while I stand here staring at the food I should already have in my mouth.


8. The person who doesn’t thank you for holding the door open.

Look, we’re all having a bad week here, but so help me God, I’ve done my best here.
