I've been a loyal Facebooker for years now. YEARS. Like four years. Thats longer than half of my children have even been alive. And in that four years I would say I've put up with a lot of stupid things.
Here are some of the things that just in the last day or two have irritated me about Facebook:
1- when my Mormon friends put OMG. Come on guys, you have to know what that stands for, why do we teach our children to not use the Lord's name in vain, and then you turn around and do it on Facebook just because you don't have to type out three more letters. Its annoying and I hate that I have to still read it that way in my head. Stop it. (This also reminds me of the youth on Fast Sunday that continuously use the drinking fountain. Hello?! Are you not fasting? Well, you just told the whole world. And stop tempting me.)
2- The people who threaten they're going to quite Facebook. "Hey guys, I think I'm done with Facebook, I just never use it and I'm going to delete it tomorrow at 5:30." Never happens. If you're going to delete it, just do it and quite teasing us.
3- The people who's over the top needy comments just make me want to punch them in the face. Face...book? Anyway, you know the comments where the person is basically begging you to give them attention? And its not just once in awhile because that I get, but EVERY time they post, its needy and feel sorry for me and annoying and you just want to tell them that their life is just not that bad and quit it! Instead, I'll just block their updates.
4- The people who use Facebook as a platform to slam The Hunger Games. Hahaha! Okay, I was a little annoyed by this. The best response to the whole, "Its children killing each other!!!!" was: "Did you not know what it was about before you saw it??" Seriously though, did you not? If it sounds horrible to you, don't go see it. And please for the love, DON'T take your little kids!
5- Worst offenders for Facebook are the bandwagon jumpers. I'm going to be mean here (I know what you're thinking, I'm just starting to be mean--what about the rest of the post?? Yeah well, whatever), but the big thing going around Facebook this time is 'Justice for Trayvon Martin' and I'm not saying its not a horrible situation and sad that this boy was killed, it IS, I'm just saying-- do you REALLY think a man walked up to a 17 year old boy, shot him in the chest and that he wouldn't be convicted of murder? REALLY? Please people, think about these things. Does that make sense?? Its like Stop Kony all over again, my gosh! Why do we have to jump on these things and get all riled up and freaked out and indignant when we don't even have the facts?
(So, I wrote this and saved it because I wasn't sure if it was too mean. Now that I'm off my period, I think its hilarious! :D So you can laugh at my irritability from my hormonal imbalances too!)
