Q&A: Predictability

Whose words or actions can you most easily predict?

I have some friends I don’t really talk to much anymore but they’re still on my facebook, and I can pretty much tell you exactly what every post they make is going to be just by seeing their names pop up in my feed.  I have a cousin who posts nothing but religious posts about how awesome god is or posts about narcissists taking advantage of people because apparently ‘thou shalt not judge’ doesn’t extend to ex-husbands.  And another friend who only ever posts things about how the whole world is a bleak and horrible place, and one more who posts nothing but how awesome it is to be a ‘minimalist’.

If you want me to talk about someone I actually talk to face to face, it would probably be my brother-in-law.  Or my mother.  Or pretty much anyone in my life who just complains a lot.  People who complain a lot are incredibly easy to predict.  You want to be original while also talking about how much something sucks?  Think up a fix for it instead of just explaining why it sucks.  Odds are good everyone already knows it sucks.  Say something different.
