Appalling Social Media Behavior
October 29 2018
The first time it happened I thought little of it... Scrolling through the Queenstown Trading page looking for suitable housing options (along with many others), I saw a post with accompanying cringe picture from a seemingly happy couple stating they were moving to Queenstown and were subsequently looking for a place to rent. I thought at first this was fair enough, trying to put themselves out there, why not...
The days went past however and I started seeing more and more of these posts, always from young travelling couples clearly with no time to look for housing like the rest of us, but wanted the facebook attention a sickening picture and soppy bollocks post would bring. More days went past and I was at the point of pulling my hair out for the posts to stop. Everyday another post exactly the same as the others would go up and still couldn’t understand why these lazy buggers weren’t looking like the rest of us, yet assumed people would contact them because of their soppy bullshit post.
As a single traveler looking for a house with several other friends/colleagues we have had enough. Stop your pretentious self involved posts of you and your cute relationship which, lets face it won’t last the year... May you all be together forever.
