To start with, I feel nervous as well as excited about speaking out my mind to all of you out there. Is this the most cliched statement you’ve come across? Alright, I agree but can’t deny it.
How much time on an average you spend on WhatsApp? As soon as you answer that to yourself, you should also understand that you’re already judged! Whatsapp has rolled out this feature where people can upload their status so that jobless people like me can go through them whenever I’m on Whatsapp.
If I take a second to realize why am I even looking at these unwanted statuses I don’t get an answer. How about you?
Even though you know how exactly it works let me tell you my version of the story. The other day I had to add the contact number of a total stranger because he is the caretaker or the go-to person whenever I face a problem at my brand new flat that I moved into, not that I bought it but anyways take the credit of finding such a beautiful place for myself to survive for the next few months. This was the background story of why exactly did I save someone’s number.
Today, while I’m on Whatsapp I see a status where this so-called caretaker has uploaded a video showing off his cooking skills. On another day, I would’ve ignored it as I do to the other posts. But we all know destiny right, probably I had an epiphany and took a moment to think about what should I make of the video. Should I reply and appreciate? Should I drop a message to fulfill my curiosity of asking him who was the post intended to? Or else should I just ignore it as I’ve done to a million other posts? Now, while it looks like a simple answer, could you try to imagine how many of such posts you might have ignored before?
From the caretaker of the flat to my best friends, everyone is caught up in these moments where they post some random shit and I don’t know how to react to it. The best advise anyone is going to give me is ‘ignore them bruh’ which I can definitely do but what’s wrong with people? Are they attention seekers or the ones who are abandoned by society and trying to be as social as possible?
Don’t even dare to get me wrong! I see the funny side of the story as well as the thing that doesn’t excite me at all. One status is about dubsmash which I hate, there’s another one about the food they’re eating, the other one is an inspirational quote and I’ll leave that up to you to decide how inspirational it is though. There are few about pets and other selfies blah blah blah…. As you see this shit goes on and I’m way too good-hearted to mute someone’s status.
The mystery remains unsolved. I’m not here to give a solution but to rather point out a question, poking your nose!
