A new trend: Insta-shaming!

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.

Caption: “Perry’s hilarious. Love talking to him about apartheid.”

So people should lay off the shaming of animals and kids and shame their friends instead. Or what’s left of their friends.

  1. Love this! A fabulous idea, so long as you don’t showcase my tardiness the next time we meet. No, wait! You and Zach were late for our last lunch… LOL.
