#twitterkills thursday 38

today's #twitterkills thursday topic of the week: tweeting on vacation. . .

i understand people's excitement about being someplace new. someplace exciting. being away from the stress of everyday life. and i enjoy fuckery tweets. tales of drunkenness. random mishaps. airport stories.

but when your vacation seems to never end. and every tweet is something about the city you're in. every tweet is about what you're doing there. every tweet is about where you're at. every tweet is name/location dropping. when it appears that you're doing an infomercial for the city...i can't co-sign that.

truth is. a vacation is just that. a vacation. i can deal with you being excited about spending a few days away from home. but when it turns from "new experience" to "i think i may live here". and you're acting like you're on a different planet or in a different country. when you're acting like it's the greatest place in the world. and now you think you might move there. and everything is, "this is great...this is wonderful....this is my kinda city". it gets annoying as fuck to see your tweets. it's like..yes we know you're in, "callamazoo". yes we know you love, "callamazoo". yes we know you're planning as we speak to move to, "callamazoo". but what happens when the vacation is over and it's time for you to live and work in "callamazoo"?

maybe because i never let the glitz and glamorous of tourist spots to get the best of me. so it annoys me when people go some place for a day or two and decide it's the best place in the world. like is your life that boring that a day in a new place will make you give up everything and move on a whim? maybe i just sense the "regret" tweets coming. or the "this isn't what i thought it would be" tweets. and that shit already seems annoying as fuck and it hasn't even happened yet. so for that...pow. pow. pow. pow. pow. pow. pow. pow. a death for every day i've had to read a "on callamazoo's jock" tweet.

LOL...I guess I can say that about folks who come to Miami for a couple days and think that it's so live and hype and I'm just like, "Uhh I suppose!"
