Why I Don’t Give A Fuck About Your Tips

 

There’s been a worrying Corona-rise in people dispensing advice. In the form of tips. It needs to stop.

 

Tips On Avoiding Tips

 

(1) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because a half-assed Google search will get me further in thirty seconds

 

(2) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because if you really had something interesting to say you’d write it in paragraphs

 

(3) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because their premise is you’re fancy and I’m flailing 

 

(4) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because they’re mostly about you getting attention, not you helping me

 

(5) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because they’re an effective way to avoid thinking

 

(6) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because they assume that gaming a topic is more interesting than understanding it, or experiencing it

 

(7) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because they confuse hindsight with insight

 

(8) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because they dilute your talent and dim your light; which is unfortunate 

 

(9) I don’t give a fuck about your tips because there’s only ever ten of them

 

(10) And that’s fucking suspicious
