Kristi Gustafson, a writer over at Times Union, has a bone to pick with people who take tacky pictures of themselves and then post them on Twitter. Some of the tacky behaviors she lists are people who take pictures of themselves shirtless in the bathroom (with the toilet seat up), people who take pictures of themselves holding cash, and people who take pictures of their engagement, wedding ring.
I agree that bathrooms are not an attractive setting for shirtless shots, and flashing cash around just shows that you’re not use to having any, but is taking pictures of your engagement ring really that tacky? After announcing the engagement, it seems appropriate to also post a picture of the ring so friends and family can see it, especially those friends who don’t live near you and, most likely, were the ones pestering you to post pictures of the ring in the first place. Now obviously I’m incredibly biased, but what do you guys think? Is tweeting pictures of your engagement ring tacky?
