Internet, I got beef with you.

Sooooo. We gotta talk.

You guys know that I believe in positivity and kindness. I don't always practice it (who does, right?), but I believe in being kind. And not being a raging douchecanoe.

And I know the internet is full of trolls. And that's fine, or whatever. I'm mature enough to know that everyone isn't going to agree with me all the time, and that's fine. My issue is when people get all superior when you care about something they don't.

Let's use HRH The Royal Fetus Prince, for example. I don't expect everyone to care. I know everyone isn't as excited as I am. And that's fine. But I saw post after post, tweet after tweet yesterday of people essentially bragging about how they don't care about what's going on. And that's just not cool with me. There are awful, terrible things that happen every day, so when something wonderful happens, we have the right to be excited about it. Making fun of other peoples happiness doesn't make you cool or edgy, it actually just makes you a butthead.

And no one likes a butthead, right?

HOLLER. I agree times a million.

I was like shut up, aholes, I am excited for them and I don't care that you don't care and I don't think you are superior for not caring. This is actually on my Thursday Thoughts list already!

I agree! It completely baffles me why people feel the need to be negative all the time.

I said this to one of my friends today, and I totally agree with what you've said here. Sure, I will NEVER meet the royal family, nor do I live in London, NOR am I obsessively tweeting about the happenings of the royal baby, but I am firmly on the side that believes it's nice to have news that excites people and makes people happy for once. Amen, sista.

I have had to listen to hubby make silly, stupid and annoying comments about the new prince because he doesn't give a rats ass..........I however do care and I am interested and I have been telling him to shut the hell up it isn't all about what he is interested in

Being negative doesn't work at all in life! I was very happy about the royal baby myself! We should celebrate the good time in life!

Not to mention they obviously care if they're taking the time to tweet about it ... Ugh
