1. Following of the husbands
This is number one for a reason. Have you ever been on Pink Peonies or Gal Meets Glam's Instagram accounts? Click over to their husband's pages the next time they link to them. These guys have thousands of followers. And anytime they post a picture of their wives, the fan girls come running and liking and commenting. Just a little creepy...
2. Where/how/when/why/what did you get that
Big fashion blogger posts picture of dying grandfather, while visiting him in the hospital.
Fan girl: "Oh my gosh I LOVE that necklace where did you get it?!?!"
Let's have a dash of respect. Just a dash? Or nah?
3. Go to husband's page to ask that question
Let's take number one a step further.
"So your wife, I saw that picture of her at her grandfather's funeral, and she didn't answer me back but I'm wondering if you can ask her where she got the shoes she wore to the funeral? And if you could give me the link to those shoes? Oh--and my condolences."
4. Car selfies
There, I said it. Just a little creepy. Why does everyone think they look so good in the car?
Personally, I think I look really good in the dressing room at TJ Maxx --- but really, how can I get that exact lighting for my bathroom mirror? Maybe I'll ask TJ's instagram account? Or maybe their husband's insta account where they got their lighting from.... --- But in the car, no.
We, yes that is a collective we, do not look good in the car. Unless your seatbelt strap is Kate Spade and you're using "Like.To.Know.It" to link to said Kate Spade seatbelt strap, then instagramming a car selfie is just a little creepy.
5. But literally every. last. item. we see them wearing / not wearing....
We hound them for.
Ohhh where did you get your....
chicken noodle soup
Can you please answer us???!!! I don't see tags to these items? The Like.To.Know.It email didn't link to your cat's litter box, PLEASE TELL US WHERE YOU GOT YOUR CAT'S POOP BOX FROM, PLEASE!!
Sometimes I scroll through my insta feed and certain accounts grab my attention and the only thing that crosses my mind is to ask them, "Ok but, how long did this picture take you?"
7. Have conversations as if the person is not right there
Some of these big bloggers will post a picture, and some girl will say something bitchy about the blogger that posted the picture. Then a super fan will come white knight to the blogger's rescue, then original bitchy girl will come back and defend her statement, then more super fans will white knight for their bestie fashion blogger they've never even spoken to before.... Um, this is the original instagrammer's account. You guys know she is right there, right? She can read all this......
And then finally, here is something creepy that I do....
8. Something I DO that is just a little creepy
I like to look into the reflection on people's sunglasses to see who is taking their picture.... like it is a Magic Eye poster and the longer I stare at it, the sooner the photographer will reveal him/herself.
And just like that, I'm a *super creep, super creep (she's super creepy)*. Creepy to the max. I win this round of the creep contest. But for the next round of "Things We Do On Instagram That Are Just a Little Creepy", what are some entries you would like to submit? What do you do on Instagram that is just a little creepy?
Hmmm.... better not wear sunglasses anytime Chalupa Batman takes my picture, now I've given you people ideas....
Follow me on instagram, because creepsters unite!
