I will open with I am an Irish male 28yo but its only hit me how self obsessed/consumed people have become . I had an idea but Christ im seeing it now
So im Sitting poolside in Malta on holiday.
The hotel has a roof top pool overlooking the beach front (beautiful and all that )
For the entire week, the amount of couples posing for photos is taking to another level (mainly French but English and amercian also)
Ages range 20 to 40.
I know this is driven by social media buts its a worrying trend because its also showing the disregard for other people
For example , a girl and guy will come up and have their partner take about 10 photos of each other posing in all sorts of angles. Revewing reach photo, telling each other to lift this hand or pose in this/that position.
I heard an English girl next to me say to her partner during the photo , ''suck in and lift your glass up more '' wtf
These people are oblivious to everyone around them. Its like just trying to get the perfect photo.
I personally find it uncomfortable to watch but maybe i shouldn't
Ive even seen lads move other guest drinks without permission so they can take photos [how rude touching someones drink]
Yesterday a group of 6 French people turned up and just started pulling all the beds out into their own circle which isnt allowed and blocks the waiting staff from doing.their job. The staff made them move them back and they did a half arse job.
Just to give some context, i serched the hotel on instagram for people tagging it and its all like this.[attached]
Is it an Irish thing maybe ? Or a lad thing?
The whole self obsession makes me uncomfortable
