The PDX carpet
It’s bad enough when people take to Twitter and post "SFO>PDX," but it's even worse when they post the ubiquitous PDX carpet pic. Honorable mentions: people who say they "collect" cities, Tweet "NYC I’m in you!," use Swarm to check in at the airport, at the bar at the airport, at the gate at the airport, and then their flight number, or caption their Instagram pics with "Paris, I think I love you." But mostly, ugh, that carpet. We hoped when the new carpet was installed, the pics would stop. Alas, life is not that kind.
Now that we all walk around with tiny computers attached to our hands, it's popular to go on a trip and not bring devices. Except that no one seems to be capable of unplugging without going on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and announcing they're doing so. Also, sorry, but what's the point of going on holiday if you aren’t constantly bragging about it on social media?
