10 Selfies that do not deserve to grace the internet
It is admissible that selfies are a thing. They are such a big a thing that the Oxford and the Merriam Webster dictionaries have not only included it in their annual edition books, but also named it “The word of 2014.”
But despite being used to capture some beautiful moment with oneself, people have started abusing it in order to get more and more likes, followers and retweets on the social media. Also there is an appropriate time and situation for them. But the following 10 instances are not the ideal places where a selfie was necessary.
1 This insensitive idiot
It is mega insensitive to take selfie when someone else’s house is burning to the ground, with fire-fighters doing their best to control the fire and you flip your phone out and make an idiot looking face and take a selfie at the same location. It is just not the appropriate place to take your image man, could you have not helped these people instead.
2 Selfie at a funeral
This dude has no decorum or the respect for the dead person, at whose funeral this guy is taking a duck-face selfie in the hallway. Doing so isn’t cool, unlike this guy’s thinking.
3 Timing is everything
Well, it is more of a hilarious example of ‘timing in a selfie.’ The dog saw an opportune moment to make itself immortal in that particular selfie. As they say timing is god.
4 This mom
You have a beau and you want to send him a sexy picture. You can definitely do that, but please use the privacy of the room and also it would be a good idea to check the room for other occupants. Because this woman totally failed at seeing that her son was also a part of that sexy selfie that she just sent to her loved one.
5 Cosplay overdone?
We get it that you are a lover of either comic books or any TV show, but please have some respect for the eyes that are going to see you in this selfie. There are actually no words to describe what we saw in this pic.
No idea what costume is that or which character she is imitating.
6 Great use of technology
Yes, your parents worked so hard to earn the kind of money that was needed to send you to an amazing school and then even bought you a very expensive laptop that you are now using to take a picture of yourself, in admiration of how beautiful you are, instead of studying. Great going gal!
7 Totally awkward selfie
When someone goes to a hospital to meet a loved one who is a patient, it is not okay normally to take a selfie with them. And it’s totally idiotic to take a selfie especially when they are on their deathbed.
Please don’t be immature and stupid like this person and repeat the same thing next time you visit a hospital.
8 Documenting your stupidity
Breaking the law is not funny and it is also not a situation in which you could take a selfie. Especially when an officer of law is present there in order to cite you for whatever stupid thing you were doing.
Doing so is disrespectful not only to the police but also to the law of the country that you live in and follow. So don’t be like these two idiots and take a selfie when you get caught doing something illegal.
9 Kinda inspirational
Well here is a selfie worth its weight in gold. Though it is a bit difficult to look at, but you have to give the man some respect because he is ripped as anything.
That kind of dedication to bodybuilding and that too at his age deserves some applause. But you cannot stop imagining who must have been the receiver of this picture.
10 The #hashtags
Hashtags are nothing but keywords that are trending currently on various social media sites. When you post something and/or upload an image, you need to add some hashtags to them using the “#” symbol. It helps the public in getting to know more about the image you have uploaded.
But please don’t go overboard with the number of hashtags on one post or image. Otherwise you will look like this genius who added close to 50 hashtags in order to keep his post trending.
