pet peeve: things that list message times as “x minutes ago” if recent and a date without a year if not recent, but less than a year ago

justfuckingtellme when these things were posted, you bastard

and that goes double for you, Google Maps, telling me that my bus arrives “in five minutes”

what if i want to quickly fucking check while I’m walking to make sure i’m keeping pace huh

i don’t want to have to reload the goddamn page

you fuckers

But what if you’re not smart enough for that.

(This is honestly how I think it works. They A/B test this shit with a focus group of drunk show ponies and if they can’t tell in two seconds, it’s too complicated and needs to be simplified)
