I get more and more annoyed every time I see this stupid meme with MY picture (#2 - the “star-crossed lovers”) being used without my permission. For the record, it is taken completely out of context. That was not a date. It is a picture I took of my boyfriend and our mutual friend sitting across from me at a group dinner which included about 25 other people. The reason they are on their phones is because the restaurant was blaring their music so loudly (and refused to turn it down when we asked) that we couldn’t hear each other talking, so we all had to text each other. I thought that was funny, hence the reason I took the picture. Also, it was taken in 2007 and the first time I saw this meme was 2 years ago when I received it via email… from my 73-yr-old mother. You’re late to the party, Buzzfeed.
