I don’t know if you’ve been on the web lately, but every website I visit FORCES me to accept cookies. That little banner at the bottom of the website that informs me that I am being tracked by cookies.
I’m sorry, but I’m diabetic. I CAN’T accept cookies. It gives me anxiety and raises some stomach acid every time on every site to click the tiny X they hide on every single cookie notice. Thanks UK. It is totally the GDPR‘s fault. I mean, sure, people should know when cookies are in use.
Cookies are not the evil thing that every footer banner makes them out to be, UNLESS you’re a diabetic like I am. THEN they are. THEN they will bring tears and death. Until then, I just don’t want to go anywhere on the web. It just isn’t fun anymore. I guess I don’t get my yah-yahs from IKEA. I need to feel like I’m being watched while I look up cat memes or whatever. THAT gives me adventure and quickens my blood. Oh no, the cookies are going to get me, ahhhhhh.
If you’re sick of the cookie notices, I’ve found a wonderful Chrome addon you can use to stop seeing them: Cookie Notice Blocker has given me back some of my sanity online. I love it.
