People & Selfies

We bitches love ourselves.  But, we are not so self-absorbed to spend HOURS on selfies.

I have too funny bitches to report.

On my LA to Dubai flight, I sat behind a woman (probably a bitch herself!) who was obsessed with taking pictures… of herself.  Before we took off, she put on full make-up and posed for selfies complete with Zoolander lips for about 15 minutes, I suspect to get that perfect shot.  Which she then retouched for another 15 minutes.

Once airborne, she produced a pink pillow in the shape of a star and proceeded to take about 50 more selfies.  We were in coach mind you, so what does she really have to share?   Ooh, look at me (please!), I’m in a middle seat in coach.  At least it wasn’t on British Airways, which would have been tragic.

Men bitches aren’t any better.  I had the pool at the Dubai Oberoi basically to myself both yesterday and today.  However, at about 5:30pm today, one other guy showed up.  But before getting in the pool, he took about 20 selfies.  Laying on a lounger with a hat, without a hat, with sunglasses, without sunglasses.  Walking around the pool to get the perfect background.  That was bad enough, but then he got IN the pool WITH his phone (one of those waterproof ones, you know the ones they drop in fish tanks in the TV ads) and took more selfies.  Head out of the water, the chin-in-the-water shot, etc.  This bitch was out of there…

Have we degenerated, irreversibly, into self-absorbed social media obsessed morons?  I think we have.  Elsa agrees, so it much true.
