Local woman decides to ruin day by reading comments on Advertiser article

DAN SCHMIDT

‘Maybe someone has something insightful to ad’ mistakenly thought Tay Bloyd once again.

Despite having a perfectly fine morning, Tay has decided to almost knowingly completely spoil the rest of her day by clicking on the ‘Join the conversation’ button at the bottom of an Advertiser article.

What followed for Tay was a downward spiral of baffling grammar, xenophobic statements, and threads of arguments between commenters where both parties are somehow wrong.

‘I couldn’t believe what I was reading’, said Tay ‘and I mean that quite literally, I was genuinely surprised I could decipher what people were trying to write’.

‘Honestly though, it’s amazing how much ground these people covered. Everything from anti-vaccine narrative, transphobia, racial profiling, and conspiracies about the World Economic Forum for some reason. This was all on an article about how much rain there was last night!’

‘So yeah, my day is totally ruined now knowing that these people exist. Maybe I’ll check the Facebook comments on the story, I’m sure they couldn’t be any worse’.
