Tumblr Explains Burgergate, The Most Unnecessary Chicken Sandwich Drama

One of the biggest problems with talking online is that it's impossible to decipher someone's tone, but at the same time it's also very easy to assume someone is trying to be a jackass. On top of that, we never really know when we might "crossing the line" for someone who's freakout meter is set on a hair trigger. And to fuel the flames of this situation in particular, they decided to make like a chicken sandwich themselves and double down. What started as one chicken burger/sandwich correction rolled into a multi-day snafu that had people freaking out over nothing when everyone could have just gone outside or spent time with their families. Amazing. For some more stupid drama, here's a Tumblr thread on drama in the yarn community.

Things That Were Nice About Pre-Internet Times

Yeah, it's nice having access to better tv at the click of a button. Of course it's better to be able to video chat with a friend who lives across the country. It's definitely convenient to be able to solve a heated argument by looking up the cast list for The Lion King. But also it was nice to not have to walk around with a box that makes you angry to look at. You could chalk it up partially to nostalgia, but there were a few nice things about the modern dark ages where VCRs ruled and we used to be excited about a re-run we liked.

Luckily, there are also people out there who have the patience to call these people out, so there are tons of delusional liars who got outed in righteous fashion.
