Sending photos is so easy these days!

Pet peeve: People who don’t send you photos after an event or vacation or activity or whatever and especially when you know they’re not busy, have easy access to a smartphone and the photos are already available and so easily sendable via whatsapp or Facebook. I mean what’s the point of hoarding them? There’s a sense of immediacy because I’d personally like to share the photos right away because the event or moment is fresh. If you send it to me a week later or a month later or God forbid, a year later, what tf am I going to do with it then?! The moment has passed. 😐

The best people: Those who send you the photos right away as in the night you separate from each other at the latest and are able to send you everything and not skimp out on select photos. (Unfortunately, I have an amazing memory and actually remember which photos were taken and if one wasn’t sent to me even if you claim it was, I’ll remember. Another tiny part to the pet peeve part if someone claims they sent me all the photos but actually didn’t. Again, why hoard photos?!)

Also, I despise having to “chase” or “bother” people with said photos because if the event has already passed, I know they’re probably even more busy to take a moment out of their day to do it. Seriously, a ‘send send and forget the day of’ should be the motto.

Another way to correct this “problem” is to ensure that my phone is one of the ones that takes the photos so that I have a copy of it and can myself send it to others instead. This isn’t always feasible though because as it’ll be a group photo (or a moment where someone is taking a pic of you), it’s not always possible to get my phone or shove it in there when there might already be more than one camera taking the pic. If a group photo is in my possession though, I have no problem sending it to others. Again, it’s so incredibly easy and takes no skill to send photos online these days! Which is exactly what peeves me off about those who can’t find a simple second in their day to do it. It’s about respect and compassion that if you are the one in possession of a group photo to send it out promptly without having to be asked.

    So true. It’s such an easy favor to do for people. Likewise at conferences, some speakers promise to share their slides and don’t. One guy who make a big deal out of promising to share his slides, and told people not to take notes, and ran out of time in his very useful presentation, never responded to either of my emails. What gives? He gave us his email. He offered.

      Oh man, that kind of stuff infuriates me to no end! Especially in a digital world, it costs nothing and is so fast and simple to do such a task. It drives me nuts when I encounter these situations.

    Yeah… sometimes, I feel like I literally have to beg. It only takes a few seconds. Sigh.
