Foursquare Envy

My main goal in life these past few months has been to become mayor of something on Foursquare.

For this very reason, when I realized that a location near my apartment that I frequented wasn’t yet on Foursquare, I created  it. And I started checking in. I was on my way to a mayorship.

But then someone – who doesn’t live anywhere near me and who I know for a fact doesn’t visit this location near my apartment EVER – thwarted my plans. He began checking into MY LOCATION twice a day. By the time I realized what was happening, it was too late — I was an honest checker-inner, and as such, was way behind. My mayorship was lost.

Now, people told me I was being paranoid, that no one lies about their location Foursquare. Tonight, these wearers of rose-colored glasses were wrong. I got a ping that said person checked in at MY LOCATION…but…see…the funny thing is…MY LOCATION CLOSED TWO WEEKS AGO!

I am so disillusioned that I’ve lost the will to try for another mayorship. Consider my gears ground and my chances of occupying a virtual political office down to nil.

Also consider my Foursquare nemesis Meccanized.
