In recent months, dog-shaming has become an Internet fad, where dog-owners take photos of their pets next to handwritten notes of what the animal has done wrong, from the point of view of the pet.
Worse yet is kid-shaming, also known as, “Things kids will tell their therapists someday.”
I don’t get why animals and children need to be shamed when they don’t really know what they’re doing. That’s why I recently started Insta-shaming my adult friends who fail to meet me on time for scheduled outings because failing to meet friends on time is something to be shameful of.
Post a photo to Instagram, and you’ve got yourself a world of minor-but-amusing adult embarrassment.
My friend and her boyfriend are late to brunch:

Same friend, different location. This time Bethany is late to pick me up for a gallery crawl.
This time, two friends are late meeting me at a bar.
So people should lay off the shaming of animals and kids and shame their friends instead. Or what’s left of their friends.
