Are you one of those people who can't resist checking your phone first thing in the morning? Well, it seems like humans aren't the only ones guilty of this habit. In a viral image that has taken the internet by storm, we witness a raccoon indulging in the exact same behavior. This raccoon, lying comfortably on a fluffy grey blanket, is propped up on its back as if it's in bed. With a sleepy expression on its face, the raccoon holds a teal smartphone in its paws, engrossed in its screen.

The image is accompanied by two blocks of text that add an extra layer of humor. The top text reads, "Me posting the most garbage memes first thing in the morning," while the bottom text hilariously states, "I'm awake and it's everyone's problem now." It perfectly captures the essence of waking up and immediately diving into the world of social media, without much thought for the quality or relevance of what we share.

The intention behind this image is to humanize the raccoon and highlight the relatable behavior of sharing content on social media without much consideration. It's a playful way of reminding us that even wild animals can mimic our addictive habits.

The image has sparked a frenzy of reactions online, with users chiming in with their own experiences and thoughts. User #22 expressed their frustration, saying, "I freaking hate when this happens." Meanwhile, user #3 shared their relief about their city's recent approval of growing native grasses, adding, "My lawn is about to look VERY different."

But it wasn't just about the raccoon and social media. The comment section veered off into various topics, from the impact of grass fields on the environment to discussions about favorite TV shows and even personal experiences with ADHD. It's incredible how an image can trigger such diverse conversations.

As the image continues to circulate, it's clear that it struck a chord with people from all walks of life. Whether you're a social media addict or just someone who appreciates a good laugh, this raccoon meme is sure to brighten up your day. So, next time you reach for your phone upon waking up, remember the raccoon who beat you to it, declaring, "I'm awake and it's everyone's problem now."

#22 I freaking hate when this happens


#3 So f***ing glad my city has approved growing native grasses & wildflowers recently. My lawn is about to look VERY different.


#3 About a half-hour's drive south from Tulsa, there are vast fields growing nothing but grass for lawns. It's pretty gross.


#22 the trash bagged clothes realllllyyy sell the experience of this one.


#3 33% of North America's earthworms are introduced/invasive species. rip out all the grass you want, but our ecological system will never reset. (but we can do better)


Good luck on your bottles of Seemann's.


I was having a lovely dream where I was watching an epic, imax-filmed, lovingly animated version of Terry Pratchett's "The Last Hero."


#27 Even as a lifelong TNG fan I recently learned that episode caused quite a stir over there. I think it was the same episode where Data channeled his inner Starship Troopers by saying that, at certain times in history, terrorism can achieve positive outcomes.


#48 Kramer running in looking for the heart at the end was *chef's kiss*. Loved it.


#6 Mistah Dahhsee?
