Re: Facebook pet peeves
-40-year old women posing for pics of themselves on a daily basis. At dinner. New dress. At the pool. In the mirror. FB has killed the next reunion for me. I had no desire to see 50% of the self-indulgent people I grew up with. Now, it's pretty much 90% of them.
-The multiple teeny-bopper and 20-something cousins that take pics of themselves in the mirror and stick out their lips in the pouty Olson twin look. Daily. And someone always takes the bait and posts, "you are soooo pretty....." or "U shld be a model...OMG!!11!1".
-The multiple teeny-bopper and 20-something cousins that drop f-bombs (or worse) for the world to see and whine about everything. Drama.
-The vague posts screaming for "what's wrong?" responses. Drama.
-"I'm going to the gym." Good for you.
-"Cruisin' in the 'vette tonight." We get it, you have a Corvette. Kewl.
-"I think I'm going to get a new tat today". Great, you're 19 and can barely feed the newborn that you have, you should definitely go out and get a new tat.
-"Look how cute my kid is." (self-pic taken in the mirror holding child and showing off new tat). Sample of responses: "Ur such a great Mom." "She's sooo cute." "Nice tat." "Ur hot!!11!!
-Amway friend. "Sign up for this." Nope. Blockage.
-FB was really pretty great in the beginning, but now it's been ruined by people like this. In a way, it's kind of useful though. It's helped separate people I wouldn't mind keeping in touch with or running into and those that I will run the other way if I happen to see them walking in my direction. I would say that it's created an entire generation of monsters, but it's not limited to one age group and I'm pretty sure these people were like this to begin with. It's just highlights the sad situation of our culture today. A bunch of whiney, insecure, megalomaniacs fishing for compliments on a daily basis. It's like crack for monsters.
Thank you Facebook. I hate you Facebook. Why can't I quit you?
