Perfectionist's nightmares about in app game adverts being played appallingly



Janet Wright, a 19.44-year-old perfectionist from Worthing, has been waking up late at night with the sweats. She explained, 'Smartphone applications I use keep forcing adverts on me which are irritating enough in themselves, and they are for silly little games I have no intention of playing. What really grinds my gears though, is that sequences of the games feature them being played terribly by a complete incompetent. To present decision making as horrific as that, I can only imagine they engage the services of Conservative politicians.


'There's this particular one which features a fish gobbling up other fish with clear values attached to them. The imbecile playing keeps choosing the fish with the lower value, like they are Chancellor of the Exchequer. Oh, oh, and this other game where you have to fit shapes into other larger shapes... who did they get to play that one for the advert sequence? The Prime Minister?'

As a fellow perfectionist, I can totally relate to the nightmares you might have about those in-app game argentics adverts being played so appallingly! It's frustrating when you're enjoying a game, trying to achieve high scores, and suddenly you're bombarded with poorly executed, annoying ads.

I remember one time when I was engrossed in a game, fully immersed in the experience, and then the ad that popped up was not only loud and obnoxious but also completely unrelated to the game I was playing. It broke my concentration, and I lost my streak, which, for a perfectionist, feels like the end of the world!
