What’s With People Who Send Links All Day?


You know, links to jokes. To recipes. To family updates you didn’t ask for.

Links to TV segments. To factoids. To cute pictures of animals.

Links to hair care products. To art show openings in other towns. And best of all, links to other links.

Their chronic linkage is all very well meaning, mind you, but after a while I have to stop and wonder:

*Where do they get the time?

*Do they have to share such minutae with literally everyone they know? Couldn’t they just lean over to their spouse (or cute animal) and whisper it?

*And is there a point where all this gratuitous serving of information is just too much to take, even if my end of it only involves a whole lotta instant deleting?

Send me a link that will answer these queries.
