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.
This isn’t new, but I get really tired of people posting crap about how they never watched [whatever show]. WHO CARES?! They act all superior about it too. “I never watched one single episode of Game of Thrones!” Wow, do you expect a medal? And they think they’re so unique but ~ newsflash ~ a zillion other people have bragged about never watching it either. I’ve personally not seen any of the Star Trek spinoffs… so what? That doesn’t make me better than people who watch them all or who see every Star Wars flick or who try to catch all the football/basketball/baseball games they can. It’s bizarre how people try to one-up each other (especially on Facebook, lol) over whichever pop culture phenomenon has failed to hook them. Oh my, I’ve turned my TV into a planter and now I listen only to classical symphonies whilst reading Proust (in the original French). Whatever, dude. Look, if you skip watching TV because you’re out feeding the needy or picking up litter on the beach or saving kittens, that’s fantastic and you have every right to toot your horn. But there’s no prize for swerving around a particular TV show or movie only to watch a different one or read a book. STFU already!
