A DRINK at a local pub has been arranged without being discussed at length via an irritating Whatsapp group.
Tom Logan made plans with his friends Martin Bishop and Wayne Hayes using just two texts, instead of setting up a Whatsapp group called ‘Monday Nite Fun Times’ and sending hundreds of messages, including a GIF of a duck drinking a pint of beer.
Logan said: “I sent them both a text that said ‘Black Swan Tuesday at 7pm?’ and they both replied saying ‘Yes’.
“I was tempted to send back a thumbs up emoticon, but then I remembered that I’m not a tit who wastes people’s time by sending them pointless tiny pictures.”
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies,said: “Human beings are excellent at taking clever new technology and using it to be absolute pricks. You can find examples of this in everything from splitting the atom to Facebook.
“What should be an efficient way of sharing information has turned into yet another method of blathering so much self-aggrandising toss that the original point gets entirely obscured by discussions about Designated Survivor and pictures of people jumping.”
He added: “People really are dreadful bastards.”
