Are we just buying into this stuff to fit in?
Putting It All Out There
Sharing everything we do publicly on social media. (Scratch_That_Itch)
What amazes me is that so many people willingly reveal their daily itinerary, political opinions, sexual orientation, and God knows what else on Social Media. If Government or Police came knocking on our door demanding the same information that we give so freely, we would ask if they had a search warrant. (InTheHotSeat)
As an Irishman the most obvious answer to this is drinking. The social pressure to go on the gargle week in, week out is unbelievable. (lizardking99)
I work at a bar in the UK and get drunk every shift. I was discussing with my friends the other day, between us it felt like we didn’t know a single bartender in my city who had a stable life. All everyone does is drink all the time. Working in a bar is such a different lifestyle. My whole life revolves around a bottle of Jaeger. (dnk1975)
That working an 8-5 job is really necessary. It’s not true for all jobs, but some jobs have huge amounts of downtime and the employees end up just trying to look busy for large parts of the day. (toxicbox)
Often the looking busy part is more stressful than the work itself (DrivingWhileChocolat)
