A national warning has been put in place today as a dangerous increase in the amount of ‘2016 will be my year’ posts are expected to cause havoc today and overnight.
The self centred, egotistical and narcissistic posts are common at the end of the year, however latest reports show that there will be more than ever before posted across the country.
It’s not entirely clear why people feel the need to claim an entire year for themselves – How taking the stance of an insane dictator to demand an entire period of time for themselves will do anyone any good.
One expert claims that people who post these are not only trying to improve their own perceived social status, but are making a conscious effort to completely forget about how little they actually achieved in the previous year.
“If most people took time to reflect on how unproductive their 2015 was, they’d probably have a nervous breakdown. The majority of people are still in the relationships they hate, the jobs the despise and are more broke than ever before. People want to forget about that and imagine some fantasy for 2016 instead.”
Richard Dawson, a psychology professor at Trinity College Dublin commented. He went on to say that people who want “2016 to be theirs are only doing so because they have absolutely nothing left in life to cling onto.”
People are being advised to be extremely cautious today as the statuses will begin this afternoon and continue later into the evening.
A heavier outburst of gin-fuelled drunken social media rants about how the new year will be “The best ever, especially after there were so many ups and downs in 2015″, are explicated to flood your Facebook and Twitter streams overnight.
People are advised not to make any unnecessary trips online this evening during the heavy downpours, as injury may occur form smashing your own face into your keyboard.
