What do you want me to do with that information?

Quite often, I read headlines that are written by people to whom I have little or no relationship whatsoever about topics & things that do not seem to affect my life in the slightest way imaginable.

Needless to say: I don’t read those articles. Yet those kinds of articles are by no means rare.

Another subset of the vast majority of articles which are completely irrelevant and useless to me are those which are simply a matter of self discovery. In such articles, the author simply comes to a realization about themselves — for example: “I realized today that …” and then “I like chocolate”, “I love beer” or “I cannot live without …” (insert whatever here — though rarely something as reasonable as “breathing air”).

Sorry, but that simply doesn’t matter to me. At all. It’s nice that someone has made a private discovery, but to be honest: there is absolutely no need to make a public statement regarding such a private matter.

If you want me to care about what you’re writing, you will have to explain to me why it should matter to me. Why should I think about it at all? What makes it relevant to my life?
