It's not just you, nobody likes updates

Leaving aside what I think is an uncontroversial take about applying system updates, I can't help but notice that this is eerily similar to this one I made in January of this year. The caption on the distracted boyfriend is literally the only difference and it makes me wonder if making memes more personal would also make them more relatable and thus by extension more successful. Perhaps there was a perception that by addressing all computer users I was punching down, which violates the humour principle that I generally try to follow of not punching down. I didn't think of it as a punch at all, in this case, but perhaps I misjudged. It's definitely something for me to keep in mind.
