I've ranted about this before. I'm doing it again.
So The Walking Dead had a big moment last Sunday. People wanted to talk about it on social media.
And then they got shouted at for doing it.
If I don't want something spoiled, I stay off social media. But others do not and then have a tantrum when something is spoiled. Now, do I post exactly what happened? Nope. But I will post vague things like, "Wow!" or, "Let's talk about the episode!"
Then I'll get a person who is like, "SHHH! Don't spoil it!"
Last I checked, I was on MY Facebook page. I'll talk about what I want, thank you.
On Twitter, I was vague, but I still had someone be like, "I HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET!"
I went, "STAY OFF TWITTER!"
I guess AMC The Walking Dead people spoiled it by saying exactly what happened. It infuriated the masses. Maybe they shouldn't have done that. But again, I know to stay offline if I don't want something spoiled.
But honestly, I like when things are spoiled, because my nerves are twisted and insane, so when major things happen, I feel like my skin is going to fall off. This is why I was grateful that I knew the Red Wedding was going to happen on Game of Thrones. Had I watched that without knowing, I'd have curled up on the floor in tears. Since I knew, I excused myself from the room and waited in the kitchen until it was over.
Same with Homeland. I knew he would be hanged. I covered my eyes. If I had watched THAT live, I'd have screamed, "WHAT THE F*CK?" and startled the cat.
I still remember freaking out with Charlie died on Lost. I was in England when I watched it, so I can't recall if I knew it was happening or not. I don't think I did, because I remember being greatly insulted that they killed off my eye candy.
You might be wondering if I was upset over what happened on The Walking Dead since I didn't know what was coming. I wasn't bummed. She wasn't my favorite. I did jump though. Tom shouted, "DAMMMMMMMNNNN!" This time he scared the cat.
So again, I will never blurt out what happened on social media, but I DO want to discuss thoughts. If someone accidentally blurts it out, don't shout at me.
