BOULDER – Catapulting himself into an instant panic, local teenager Lucas Marriott accidentally voted on his crush’s Instagram poll as he purposefully attempted to skip past it.
“Oh, god, what have I done,” Marriott said before frantically googling ‘Can you undo a vote on Instagram story polls.’ “Should I deactivate my account?”
The Instagram poll in question had only been up for three minutes when Marriott accidentally voted ‘Yes but in red’ on her story featuring yesterdays lunch.
Although his initial strategy was to skip past the story, Marriott has since expressed that his preferred selection was ‘yes.’
Marriott suspects this catastrophe was brought about by the polls positioning on the right-hand side of the screen, where viewers can swipe to skip Instagram stories from people they forgot existed until this very moment.
