Social Media, Ranting, And 27 Year Olds

Prior to 2015, I refused to get any type of social media, whether it was Facebook, Twitter, Instagram... It didn't matter, I refused to get any type of social media. Until March, when I decided to get Instagram, since I knew some collectors were on there. The first deal that I made, I purchased a card, and never received it. I paid through friends and family, so there was nothing I could do about it. The first deal that I made, I got scammed. Not a good start! Everything was smooth after that, until now. I'm pretty sure I just got scammed again, but I'll make a separate post on that... For now, I want to talk about one collector on Instagram, that goes by the name, southerncaliforniasportscards. I made a deal with him about a month ago, and we both agreed to ship the same day, which was a Tuesday. I did what I said I would do, and shipped the day I was supposed to ship. A week later, I still didn't receive the card, and he said that he didn't ship. I kept asking him for tracking, and by the time he got me the tracking, the card was already here, which was a little over two weeks. Not fun, especially when (excuse my language), called me a bitch, cry baby, and a few other names that I won't say.

Here he is... He claims that he is 27 years old.

So today, he made a post, saying, this is by far the worste generation of kids hands down. First off, he spelled, worst, wrong. All he does, is complain about all the kids on Instagram. So I made a comment, telling him how he all he does is complain, and I explained to him that what he said, isn't always true. This is the response I get:

I'm not sure if he thinks he can say anything he wants, just because he's older then most of the people on Instagram...?

I continue to say nothing, and he says this.

I continue to keep silent, and he continues to pile it on... I'm not trying to be dramatic or anything, but when someone does something like this, it's sort of difficult to not talk about it... Plus, when you talk about something, it always makes you feel better for some reason. Well, that's the end of my rant. And to add to his statement; Yes, this generation is very different, because a lot is changing, but not everyone is constantly on their iphones. Therefore, his statement is false.
Thank you for reading!

  1. Frankie, that guy is a jerk. Just block him and be done with him. As someone that is even older than he is, I can say that there isn't anything wrong with your generation. He is just an... well I won't say it but you can fill in the blanks.
