12 Of The Most Annoying Things People Do On Whatsapp
STOP HAVING A LIFE AND REPLY TO ME.
When Whatsapp entered the world, our lives changed forever. Seriously, try and even imagine a time when you couldn’t pinpoint the exact second someone was reading your message? It's a barbaric thought.
But with all the joy it brings us, it also forces us to endure the most annoying things that people do to evade you...
1. Going offline as soon as you message
Why do you hate us? If you're online, you’ve clearly seen our message pop up, you witch.
2. Being online and not responding to a question
If we’re asking you a question then surely it’s courtesy to respond in case it’s super urgent? It could be life or death when we ask you if you feel like thai or pizza ffs.
3. Sending small essays
If you are having a stress about something we did that you hated or something that happened to you at the weekend, please just call us or tell us face to face.
Unless you literally cannot talk then I don’t need to put aside an hour to read your life story.
4. Ask you why you’re ignoring them when you haven’t been online
If the ticks aren’t blue, we haven’t seen your message. So why do you think we’re ignoring you if we don’t even know you are there? TUT.
5. Being short with you when they’re annoyed
We cannot deal with the passive aggressive ‘ok' message if you’re annoyed at us. Firstly, just put on your big person pants and tell us and secondly, we can’t actually tell if you’re annoyed or just busy. It's maddening.
6. Messaging at 1AM on the group chat
We're happily asleep, minding our own business. Or at least we were until the light from our phone woke us up with a message relaying your meaningless chat at 2AM. And then someone replies and soon there's a 54 mesage deep thread we have to reach out and mute.
It’s a school night. JUST GO TO BED.
7. Not coming online but having def been on Insta
We see you on all your social media bbz, so clearly you’re screening our messages. If you can update your story six times then you can give our words a look.
8. Have a picture of your dog/baby/a cartoon as your profile pic
How on earth are we meant to know who is who when we're added to a group chat if you do this? It’s just annoying. We just wanna see your mug. As in your face and not your tea receptacle.
9. Leaving the group chat with no explanation
Oh you’re too good for us and our group chat, are you? Lines have been drawn and we know where you stand.
10. Reading too much into a comment
Whatsapp doesn't help us pick up tone so don’t get all pissy if you think we’re being short with you. We're probably just watching Netflix and trying to concentrate.
11. When someone doesn’t have their ‘online’ function on
How on earth are we meant to freak out that you have been online and not messaged us? It's even shadier - what have you got to hide?
12. When someone is typing but the message never comes.
Well we’re going to overthink those harrowing three dots for the rest of time. Thanks.
