People whipping out their cameras and recording

What a sad state of affairs we are as a society when most people's first reaction is to record someone or something instead of helping out or how about not being a social media camwhore. So many sheeples concerned about the possibility of their videos going viral if they're the first ones to get their TMZ-like videos uploaded to youtube. Gotta get those views and likes hurr durr.

The reason I'm bringing this issue to light is today I was at Tim Horton's getting a coffee. Like usual, its always busy in the morning at Timmy Ho's just a fucking gong show. Some turd decides its ok to cut in line in front of this elderly couple so I call him out and tell him to get in the back of the line or I'll report his ass to the manager. Insults are thrown back and forth and then he decides for no apparent reason to pull out his phone and start recording me. In the end douche stayed put like an ignorant jackass. Wasn't going to start a fist fight over it. Funny thing is I asked for the manager when it was my turn in line to order and he didn't give a flying fuck, guess too busy to care. Will be sending a complaint letter to the corporate head offices of Tim Horton's. This should be good

Only saving grace is I paid for the couple's order. I swear to god everything's going to hell in a hand basket. I blame most of it on social media and the internet. I know phones have their uses but people are fucking zombies w/ pokermon go, instagram, twitter, tinder all this crap that's making society go down the gutter.

People are cunts
/thread

But seriously, I honestly think people are useless. If I get the chance to help someone I am the person that actually will. People are on this earth for themselves and if they can do something that they think propels themselves forward they will do that before helping others. When I say people I mean the majority of course. I know there are lots of great people put there but there is an overwhelming amount of greed and self promotion. I can't speak if technology has anything to do with this but I wouldn't doubt it.

People are pricks, I can't even back out of my fucking driveway (busy road) without someone speeding up to get on my ass to show what an inconvenience I've been to them. Its a me first attitude in this city, no one has any patience anymore.

cameras are good to track criminal activity later for evidence.

guy was probably thinking it'll scare you, or provoke you in to doing something silly or continue to hurl insults so he can go home and upload it with some caption to tell a different story.

i wouldn't expect much from corporate other than "sorry" or a random PR letter. i think action would be taken by corporate is if the cashier physically got in your face or something.

If you're figuring this out now, unfortunately you've been under a rock for quite some time. Courtesy, respect, and so many other wonderful personal traits are gone to the wind, and what has replaced it? Ignorance, arrogance, and self-righteousness.

The only people I like are old people these days. And by old I mean 70+, they are either very nice, or grumpy old people. (Two typical kinds of old people)

That's because social media is the modern day crack-cocaine of our society. Not only does it allow people to post a grand illusion of their otherwise broke-ass lives but it also allows people to be the narcissistic, self-centred, neurotic asses they've always wanted to be.

I call bullshit, they never existed in the first place. People have always been pricks, it's just more obvious now thanks to the internet.

Its just big city living. The pricks far outweigh the nice people out here. If you go to a smaller town it seems to be the opposite.

You are blaming the tools. Try blaming the people. Social media or internet are just tools. Some use it appropriately. Some don't. A cunt without his/her smartphone is still a cunt. Social media didn't change that.

The other night there were 3 cop cars outside my apartment building for some reason. Went down to gym and the cops were talking to a young couple and I overheard something about "missing mother" and asking her if she could be anywhere else etc.

A few minutes later I see them outside without the cops and were talking selfies with the cop cars in the backgrounnd. Probably posting it on wechat. It was a moment.

If I were you, I would just pretend nothing happened when he pulled out his camera and started recording, not even eye contact just completely ignore his existence. That would make him look like a retard in the clip.

it's certainly an enabling factor

our mobile devices allow us to connect to so many things simultaneously. There's literally endless amount of distractions. It can encourage compulsive behaviour.

just another day a colleague brought up a point I never thought of...it allows people these days to be unreliable/flaky as fuck.

Back in the day when you made a plan you stuck to it. You met up at x location at specific time.

now it's common just to shoot a text "running late" etc

I think you're making a small problem into a big one, hence why nobody there gave a rats ass.

It's early in the morning, people just wanna get their coffee and GTFO, not go over some drama with some dude who wants to get his coffee first.

I live by a principle where, if I don't have an immediate solution to a problem on the spot, I usually don't approach to solve it. As for you, chances are, the guy who budged in line won't give up since his intention is to get his coffee/food first. You will only win your/the elderly's dignity and pride back, but you won't solve the problem at hand. Instead, you'll possibly cause more problem than there already is, by holding up the line or whatever.

You just have to understand that, there is always a balance in life. Where a person gain advantage, he will lose some elsewhere in his life. Another way to look at it is, karma. Because he rushed and got his coffee, he could probably get hit by a bus when he's in a hurry to cross the street or whatever. Just an example. Obviously he's not gonna get hit by a bus, it's just an example. But somewhere down the road, something will happen to him because he chose to budge in line because he altered the time and event in his life.

Just something I thought I'd share because from past experiences, anyone who has done something intentionally to me, has gotten what they deserve, as far as I heard from people gossiping or a friend would tell me.

I'm glad you helped out the elderly couple. But I don't understand your post about the issue with people whipping out their phones to record.

In this day and age, everyone has a "camera" in their pocket/purse to record for evidence. Not everyone is necessarily there to make viral videos. In the douchebag's POV, had you assaulted him, you would have been in the wrong and he would have had evidence.
