17 of the worst Instagram captions we're all guilty of using

Let it end.

POSTING AN INSTAGRAM has become an act which now requires great skill.

There’s a lot of things to consider – what filter, when to post to maximise … A caption on top of that can be truly ‘make or break’.

More often than not though, people really miss the mark. As a result, a thread is doing the rounds on Twitter, discussing what people’s least favourite captions are.


1. “It’s not Thursday but … Take me back! #TBT”

From a house party two weeks ago, relax Sharon.

2. “Office for the day!”

Ok, so the whole point of social media is pretending that your life is better than everyone else’s. But this – this. There’s gall in this that shouldn’t be tolerated.

Holiday pictures are infuriating enough. But holiday pictures in which you pretend that you’re working? Stop that.

Also unacceptable – “base of operations”.

3. “Never a dull moment with this one.”

Another wild one in the Breezers, in a taxi by 1. Never dull indeed.

4. “Round 1/2/3″

Don’t forget the accompanying punch emoji!

5. “Not a bad view.”

Of course it’s not, you are in the Maldives and you are also a dickhead.

6. “I’ve had worse Mondays”

Or, how’s your Monday going? Yeah, not great Sharon, absolutely rallied after the weekend and taking Sudafeds every hour. But enough about me?!

7. “Good times with better people.”


8. “Be rude not to.”

It absolutely would not be rude not to. Trust me on this.

9. “I’ll just leave this here.”


10. “About last night …”

What, you queued for 40 minutes to get into Coppers to get a blurry pic at the shifting wall with two guys you actually don’t like that much? Class.

11. “Low quality picture with high quality friends.”

Who are you? Donald Trump? Known the guy since play school and that the most creative caption you can come up with?

12. “So I did a thing.”

Why can you not just say you got a haircut, Lisa? Why?!

13. “Reunited and it feels so good!”

… Despite not ever appearing on their feed before this.

14. “Blessing your timeline.”

Raging I missed your ceremony of commitment Sister Patrice. Up the yard with you now.

15. “An oldie but a goodie.”

Not good enough to post when you took it though, clearly.

16. “Wish you were beer.”

17. “No caption neccessary.”

You felt it neccessary to write that though instead of putting a random emoji LIKE A NORMAL PERSON.
