Just stop it with your happiness.

AH, SUMMER. THE season of smug holiday-goers.

That’s all well and good when it’s your go, but the social media updates of others? Unbearable.

1. Phone weather screenshots

“Clear skies ahead SO excited. This time next week Xxx”

2. Packing shots

Oh, by all means, show us your gateway to flimsy-clothed freedom while we layer on an extra jumper in mid-June.

3. Back-and-forths

The worst is when you’re friends with a few different people going on holidays together. Their conversations pop up every time, like a constant reminder of their summer betrayal.

Last day in work!
Listen to this summer tune!
We NEED to go to this water park!

And you’re just at your desk like.

8. Photos of their legs by the pool

All you can think of now is if they might be hotdogs.

9. Statuses declaring how sad they are to be leaving

“Dying for my own bed. So sunburned.”

Now’s YOUR chance to be smug. Your skin is still white and you’ve been in your own bed this weekend for more time than is healthy.
