Irritating Gimmick

It has happened to me quite a few times. No I said it wrong— it happens all the time. It is highly irritating! What is it with those sadists who gives us the news? They give a tantalizing headline , or photo, and then you keep on clicking to find out the main thing with which you were attracted to it, and wanted to read.

Believe me it never happens. Short of wasting time, you never find out what you were looking for. I’m a calm person, but I lose my cool after half an hour of worthless clicking. I feel like gnashing my teeth. I feel the ache in my jaws after a futile search.

Why are they adamant on wasting our time?
