There are times when I'm sitting at the dinner table and there are people who eat SO fast, that subconsciously I automatically start to speed up. It's as if there's this hidden feeling that unless I rush, I won't have any food to eat as they'll have wolfed it all up. I actually sometimes stop and think to myself "What am I doing? Why am I rushing to grab stuff and put it on my plate as if it were a race?!"
Similarly, this whole "SHOTGUN" syndrome when commenting on posts is driving me nuts. What's up with that? Who started it? And who cares if you're the first or 47th person to comment? Your comment will still be read! The problem is, as more and more people started doing it, I found myself rushing in this shotgun race and I'm totally out of control now! :/
