A Periscope Rant

A Periscope Rant

Let’s be clear:

You don’t have to be on Periscope.

You don’t have to watch my scopes.

If you do, you don’t have to stay for the whole thing.

And if you stay, you don’t have to be a rude.

There is something called a “replay.”


And you obviously don’t want to piss me off, or it’ll inspire me to make a video.

PS: Thanks for the inspiration.

OKAY…Something happened.

And it done pissed me off.

It was just one of those things where it was like…REALLY!?!


0:12   So here I am just minding my own business, doing my own Periscope, where YOU are a volunteer audience. Yep, you don’t have to be there. You can click in! You can click out, at any time.

0:22 Now as a parent, this is something that I like to teach. If we schedule/work out a playdate with this child, and another child comes along and says, “Hey, can we play?” and she’s cooler. NO! You don’t go and play, because you already committed to playing with the first child.

0:36 Now we’re talking about Periscope, so this is what I mean. “Hi child that I said I’d play with, I was going to play with you but now that this cooler child has come over and says she wants to play with me instead, I’m gonna drop you and go play with her instead.”

0:49 You don’t do that! And, we don’t teach our kids to do that.

0:51 It’s kind-of like when your kids get invited to a birthday party…MUMS the word. You don’t talk about it at school. Cause if you talk about it at school and someone’s not invited, now you have hurt feelings.

1:01 Now I’m an adult, and I can take it! If someone better comes along and you wanna jump in their Periscope…GO! There’s the door! But, what you don’t do, because it’s frickin rude, you don’t announce it to my followers on my scope!

1:14 “Oh my gosh someone else is scoping right now, we gotta go over there! Gotta go! They’re scoping now!”

1:19 REALLY!?! That just happened! One of my friends on scope was like, Kari, I totally can’t believe you didn’t say something right then and there when you saw it. And, I think I didn’t because (scratching head) I was like, “WOW! Did that actually just happen?” Yeah, it really did just happen.

1:34 Don’t be rude! There is no reason to be rude! You just leave the scope! Leave it! Bye-bye! And, it was a really good scope and a quick one.

1:42 And, if you follow me over at DRISKOTECH, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Because I love my people and I really do think that I give really good content and entertain you at the same time.

1:53 But, I’m telling you if someone better comes along…GO! Go silently! That was just flat out rude.

Manners?   Heard of ‘em!?! I mean, really!?! Like, I’m kind-of just speechless that that happened. And, I don’t get speechless often.

2:06 And, here’s the other thing, I’d never do that to you. Do you want me to be on your scope and say, “OOOHHH gotta go, so-in-so is scoping and she’s so much better than you are”? NO! You just don’t do that! (LAUGHING, shrugging in disbelief)

2:18 (SIGH) Some of my best content comes from a rant!
