Welcome to my refreshed Monday Peeve! Unburden yourself of an annoyance and you’ll feel better afterward. Or not. Complain in my comments or crab in your own post. Doesn’t have to be on a Monday. You do you.
Gatsby and I were checking out some Facebook Reels (like TikTok) and he was horrified to see people playing tricks on their pets. “Mommy, why do those people hate their cats?” he asked me (more or less). I said they didn’t, but then he wondered why you would play a mean trick on someone you love and make them all scared and upset. I thought that was a really good question. Well, of course we know why, right? It’s to get a “funny” video in hopes of racking up “likes” on their page. They’ll sacrifice their pet’s peace of mind for a few minutes to get that vid. They may do the same thing to their kids, who knows. I find it all disgusting. In my world, you try to create a gentle and peaceful environment for your loved ones, not sneak up behind them with a cucumber to get them to jump into the air.
