You Post Pictures of Your Gross Injuries

From black and blues to broken wrists to swollen eyelids, we’ve unfortunately seen it all. Your need for attention has turned you into an online shock jock.

“People who post photos of their injuries are cut from the same cloth as those who yank up their shirts in the middle of dinner to show you their appendectomy scars or pull off their socks at a party to show you their bunions,” says Thomas P. Farley (aka Mister Manners). These are not the sorts of things anyone wants to see -- digitally or in person. As for the chap who over shares about colds, allergies, aches and pains, be warned: These are the just the kind of status updates that convince me to hide you from my news feed.” Sorry, it’s hard to muster sympathy for your runny nose (especially if you make us look at it!).
