Ruining the photo.

Messing with your Instagram to get the perfect Snapchat.

People do seem to be missing that irony in their "yeah fuck those instagram girls" circle jerk.

Reminds me of this.

Reminds me of .

"Oh no, now the only use for that is to eat."

The end of one circlejerk is the beginning of another..

That's a championship OMG face right there.

Everyone is saying ph贸, but those look like yogurt bowls to me. Unless your ph贸 is always that milky and noodleless.

I have absolutely no problem with people who take pictures of their own food, just don't ask me to put my food along with yours.

I had a (female) friend of mine get annoyed because once we got our food I just started eating it, like you're supposed to.

As the plates were put on the table she pulled out her smartphone, I pulled out my cutlery (well, I grabbed it from the table) and proceeded to dig in.

She literally said 'Oh come on, I wanted to put it on instagram' .

I just gave her a confused look, shrugged and continued my meal.

Some people I just don't get.

Edit: We're good friends, but she just has this compulsion to take pictures (of food) and post them on Yelp or Instagram, or both.

You could take a picture of your poop the next day and post it as a reply to her picture of dinner.

I will never understand why people care so much if other people take pictures of their food. Kind of a dick move to mess with other people's food

You'd like meat in your smoothie?

13 inches deep in YOUR MOM

Plus, those girls don't strike me as the type to really enjoy what happens when a former child soldier pours hot rain water over fish nightmares.

Meh, I rather hang out with the person who take photos of their food than the smug assholes who 'troll' people who do things he doesn't like but is harmless.

what are they eating?

deep.

We normal people call that soup.

Yes, that emoji does ruin the photo.

"How can I show my friends this bowl of trash now?

Roooned!"

I don't care unless they are using a flash in a fine dining restaurant. GTFO

she was born with it, molded to it.

From a stranger, absolutely. But there's a different dynamic around good friends, and I'd hope one would recognize that from life experience.

And I'm only 13

Weird, I abhor social media (don't have anything other than Reddit) and it couldn't bother me less when my friends snap food pics for instagram. It takes two seconds and it makes them happy. Why wouldn't I let them? Should I be bothered just for the sake of being bothered? Makes no sense

this is a repost, pretty sure its one of those vegan fruit smoothie bowls.

That generally applies while people are still waiting for their food, not when they're toying with it

because some people out in the real world are in these strange things called "Relationships" that in part involve messing with your friends/partners in varying ways.

I don't think she cared that much. It's more of a "you are caring about something trivial, so I'm going to mess it up for a joke" thing. It's like if someone spent 1 minute lining up their pencils in a straight line and you just pushed the pencils over. Yeah, I guess it's not nice, but it's also silly to line up your pencils in in the first place so oh well. Just a harmless tease.

Edit: incoming downvotes, care to say why I'm wrong?

Ruining someone's social media content for your own social media content... classic

This makes me a little sad. I get people overdo the food pics but sometimes it's really picture worthy. I sent my mom a pic of my breakfast when I was out last week because we used to make it together when I lived at home. Sometimes it's just fun to share experiences with people who can't be there with you for one reason or another.

That's a lot of words to say 'Asian food probably'.

It gets better with each watch.

I get what you're saying. There's the whole "who the fuck cares what other people do for fun" aspect to it.

But then, there's also the rudeness of it all. You're sitting down at a meal and clearly focused on what other people who aren't even there are going to be thinking about it. Just sit and enjoy the food and the company that's at the table. These are the same kind of people who spend half the meal on their phone. It's rude and obnoxious.

Reddit's Law: circlejerks cannot be created or destroyed, one merely leads to another.

I so badly wanted to take a picture before I ate it, but couldn't bring myself to be that kind of person.

Then you're just as superficial as 'that kind of person'.

Choosing your actions based on others opinions. If you thought it was beautiful enough that YOU wanted to take a picture you should have.

Because if I spent the time to do something and you came and shit on it that would be rude

I have a friend who has to take a top down pic of the whole table, all plates and drinks artfully arranged. Like, look Stacey I only have a brief window to eat my poached eggs at optimal temperature, hurry up with your ~art~.

Photo or no photo, why mess with someone else's food.

Ruewind would also be accepted.

I eat the same way Doc Brown fuels the delorean at the end of Back to the Future

man, what if no body gave a shit what anyone else did with their own food, what novel fucking concept

The soup spoon she uses to mix up their bowls is a Chinese style spoon commonly used in East Asian and some South Asian cuisine.

I assume it's some sort of Taiwanese shaved ice or Japanese anmitsu type dessert.

The bowls are similar in the coloration at the top, but most likely it's a "pick your own toppings" joint as you can see some pretty big variations.

In the second bowl to get stirred, you can see that the coloration is in three stripes and when it gets stirred, they swirl a bit. Consistency seems to be of a yogurt, cream, or milk.

That sounds repulsive

Meanwhile who's filming this?

You should do things because it makes you happy, not because someone is going to judge you.

On the other hand, some people only go out to eat on special occasions or with friends, and like to remember the moment.

I don't have an instagram or a snapchat, but I sometimes take pictures of my food. When I went on vacation to Chicago, the first meal I made in my first apartment, when I went back to my hometown to visit old friends, when I ate at a cool/charming place with an aesthetically pleasing meal . . .

On vacation or with friends, I don't take a lot of pictures because I'm being actively engaged with my surroundings. And it can be hard to find the right angle of a landscape or icon. Pictures of meals act as an easy little keepsake to remember an event by.

If they don't care about the protocol, then why should you. Just start eating your food.

This was bad and you should feel bad.

Vegan precludes any milk products, so yeah. I'd like some yogurt or cream or at least milk in my smoothies.

That doesn't make it any less rude.

Was dad giving you the reach around that time?

Nope, split bill. This would happen at every single meal.

More than once she's ordered "pretty food" (like smoothie bowls and flower salads) only to complain how terrible they taste.. then post to instagram talking about how lush and delicious her meals were.

Um, do you have a friend? I've got a cup.

It makes me mad how mad she is.

Man every time I think I read a funny original comment it's really just a reference to something I hadn't seen.

Huh... The girl on the left doesn't even have her camera on... The image on her screen stays static as she moves her phone away.

Does... does that means that this is staged? Could somebody have lied on the internet? Oh god, somebody hold me...

Did your friend pay for your food? That's the only scenario where I could see it maybe being okay to wait.

This is Reddit

I use almond milk in my breakfast smoothie. Not cuz I'm a vegan or anything, it's just what we have in the house. It's fine with me, smoothie still comes out tasty.

Your friends fake as fuck. She probably acts the sameway about you. Think about that.

I'm a simple man. I see that emoji, I downvote.

Oh weird, I thought it was just the restaurant I go to that used that description for their Pho Hai San. I wonder if it's a common saying, or if we go to the same little Vietnamese place. Do you get Pho at that place next to the laundromat in midtown? I'm bad with names of restaurants once I start going there regularly, lol. But I think it's called Noodles & Company.

She didn't see the face until she was already a woman and by then it was nothing to her but BLINDING

馃槀

You find fruit repulsive?

But it's not pho?

I went to a specialty restaurant once where the food was prepared and displayed on the plate in a style you could call "beautiful work of art".

I so badly wanted to take a picture before I ate it, but couldn't bring myself to be that kind of person.

It's like listening to someone complain 24/7, but after you finally complain about the complaining, you're told that you're complaining too.

There's no winning bringing piss to a shit fight.

Do you have no friends or siblings?

Honestly I don't mind if they post on Yelp. Much of my decisions are based off pictures and if the food looks good I'll go.

Oooh that's harsh. Relax bro. Have a beer. It's just an opinion.

A group of friends and i do a monthly dinner after 10-15 of them take pictures (a good 3/4 of the group) they put thier phones like normal people. I have no interest in the insta page for our food trips but it makes them happy so...

Who the fuck are you to determine what memories people cherish?

What about a "fruit smoothie bowl" sounds repulsive?

I don't care about messing with people's instagram or whatever but don't fuck with my food.

Oh god, their faces are so expressive. Perfect.

Nice Pho(to).

Yea, I've never actually encountered anyone who's as self absorbed and rude as how people describe them online.

My best friend loves to Instagram her food, and that's not at all how she acts. For her, Instagram is like a digital scrapbook where she keeps all her memories. Plus it's nice to have a quick reference if she wants to go back to the restaurant again.

She's never rude about it. For starters, she always asks "Is that ok if I take a quick picture". And after she's done with the picture, she puts her phone down and we all chat and enjoy our food.

Clearly a reddit native...

I'm guessing that they're all friends and that you're kind of making huge assumptions about their character based off of how they joke around.

Probably just a clutch Kyle Kinane reference rather than a burgeoning bro/sis/whatever-mance

How is that different than saying non-dairy versions? I realize reddit loves the hate on vegans circlejerk but it makes absolutely no sense to have made your comment.

Putting your utensil in somebody else's food without their permission is 100% rude. Adding hot sauce or anything else to actually ruin the food is much more than just rude, but it doesn't make the former any less rude.

She can't even

Really depends on the person. I have a friend who takes photos of her meal quietly before eating. I let her have her moment and neither of us upset the other.

Another friend needs everything to be perfect, and will move plates around and try and get the right angle and bitch about the lighting. She wants pictures of the entire tables meal. After two or three times being held up for 5 minutes while she played her little game, including making everyone lean back so our arms aren't in the picture, I've just started eating as soon as everyone gets their meals. She gets upset and tries to make me stop, but she still gets her picture of everyone else's food, so it can't be that bad..

That's funny

For me it's the "bowl". If it's a smoothie I'll drink it. It looks to be pretty thin though, which makes the bowls even stranger.

But how can we feel superior to other people if we don't trash talk their habits?

Well, the commenter above asked why does this bother people. My response would be that I am annoyed by the break down in proper etiquette. Essentially they force you to either wait or choose do something that you personally consider rude.

Who cares? She gets enjoyment out of taking a picture of the food that she paid for. How exactly is that hurting anyone?

Why do you get to decide what is silly and what is not? Can I mess up all your shit that I think is silly too?

It's usually only rude to start eating before everyone is served. Otherwise no one would be able to eat first.

And as much as I don't have a problem with food photography, I consider composing a picture of your food to be "begun eating" anyhow.

WHY WOULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN?

Fractal jerk.

It isn't a still image. It's a GIF.

how do you kno its not pho tho bro

You sick fuck. Think of how many poor, helpless almonds were taken away from their families and milked until dry and shrivelled.

All so you could have a "tasty smoothy"

The eyes on that left guy are priceless!

I think they're speaking more specifically about the redditors who get overly outraged by food photos.

'Asian food probably'

asian dessert

The OMG face is ruining the gif

My guess is an acai bowl? But meh who knows, the best part is their reactions lolol

Maybe making broad assessments on people based on nothing important is not the best way to judge someone.

It was a solid attempt,

That's a girl that did it

I have friends, and we do a thing where they put their middle finger over my food. I tend to remember things more if I take a picture, even if I never post it online. It reminds me. But they never touch my food.

So the only thing that can't penetrate is is something phallic?

Have YOU ever tried a non-dairy product in your life? Not the same at all

I don't think that word means what you think it means...

Or you know, both...

I take pictures of food all the time! Most of the time when I have cooked it or if I have gone to a new restaurant. I never post it on any social media. Rather I take the picture so that I can keep a memory! If someone did that, I would be really pissed!
