Like a lot of people, I love to waste many an happy hour scrolling through Pinterest. I haven't actually had any spare hours since about July, so it's been awhile since I could
feed my obsession tootle around on it, but I'm making up for lost time now. (Or...if using Pinterest is the lost time vs not using Pinterest, maybe it's some other kind of time besides "lost". Anyway.)
Something I keep seeing now is the phrase "pin now, read later" and I don't like it. Here's the thing: there are a few people I know in real life who I'm "following" and one of them is the queen of pin now, read later. Every day (I'm not kidding - EVERY DAY) she pins dozens of things and it's clogging up my viewing list. (Where does she get the time?!?). I have to scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll some more to even find one pin from someone else. It drives me nuts! I have friends tell me to try a recipe they pinned just a day or two ago and I can't find the damned pin because of Queen PNRL.
The simple solution would be to un-follow her, but she's kind of family and definitely the type to take it as a mortal wound if I were to do so. Now I feel kind of guilty even considering the un-following idea, but I just might have to do it anyway.
Why do these programs feel the need to tell someone when they've been dropped? They should just leave it alone and let people figure it out on their own
when you don't return their calls or texts for the tenth time.
And getting back to the pin now, read later concept, I again need to say, "No". This implies that there has been no vetting process on this thing you are saving and then sharing with all of the other pinners. Knock it off! The point is to save the stuff worth saving, not every blessed thing you see on the Internet.
Bah! People! Why do they have to be so people-ish?
