Oh facebook, you will be the death of me.

I love connecting to my friends and family. I love being able to show my mom pictures of Landon whenever I want. I love stalking people I knew in high school.

I HATE how some people use facebook.

Right now these are my biggest gripes(bitchy post. Turn back now):

1. I don't care how many times your kid pooped today. I really don't. I don't care what they ate to make them poop and I sure as hell don't care what color it is. Please stop broadcasting it to the public!

2. I know I post quite a few pictures. BUT I don't post 7 of the same pose with slight differences and I don't post HUNDREDS of just my child sitting there. Who needs 7 albums of 200 pictures each of their 4 month old? I get it, you love your kid! So do I. But your captions are obnoxious and it's getting a little old. Baby talk and talking in the 3rd person all the time must get old. No?

3. I understand it's hard when your husband is away. Really I do. But we all have to play single mommy. You are NOT the only one. It's your first kid how about you enjoy it! Instead you post daily about how you are so over this sh*t and you're f*cking DONE. Really? It's a baby that you meant to have! You knew this deployment was coming and you still tried. Stop begging people to come help you daily because you just can't handle it. I did it on my own and didn't ask anyone for help, I was young and scared and had no idea what I was doing BUT I DID IT. Suck it up and love your child. I hope one day you feel bad for the negative things you say about being a mother.

4. On that note. I hate the *F* word and the *C* word. I don't mind if people sometimes say the F word around me, but on facebook can you really tell me that you didn't take the time to re-read it and think "Wow. I bet I can find a better way to express what I'm feeling"? I don't like it being shoved down my throat and it makes you sound immature and stupid. Grow up.

5. Stop writing about how much you get e-mails and phone calls from your husband. We get it. He calls and writes you. So does mine. But I don't feel the need to give everyone on my facebook a run down on how many times it's been. Just be careful, you might upset someone and while you might not care, you should. (this is not about the ones who post "Had a great talk. Now off to bed" It's the ones who post daily "Got 5 calls today, 4 e-mails yesterday a 6 calls the day before". Hun you gave us the run down yesterday, no idea why you're doing it again today.)

6. I don't care who you hang out with and what you do together. I don't care if you guys had chicken together and are having pork tomorrow. I get that you hang out everyday. Stop posting it! It's annoying. You're 30 years old and all you can talk about is who's coming over to play? I post sometimes about what I'm doing and who I'm doing it with, but I don't feel the need to do it everyday about the same person. Does it make you feel cool that you finally have someone that likes to hang out with you everyday?

7. I sometimes argue with my husband but it's my business! Why you need to tell your husband to *F*off on your facebook status is beyond me. I don't need every detail about what is going on with you two. Some things should be private.

And last......

8. If you are going to take not-so-classy photos of your self or your husband or even a video....please make sure it doesn't accidentally get posted to facebook as a status and go all over every ones update wall. My eyes are still burning.

End Rant.

I understand that I can block these people, and I'm getting close. I don't mind them as people and I enjoy some of the other things they post. It's just getting a little much. It's also known that I can just delete them....but these are the people who openly bash people for deleting them. I'm at my last straw and hidden that shall be.

(Ages have been changed to protect those who are guilty) Hahaha.

Hahaha! I have many pet peeves on FB :) Not these ones really cause I only have a few people that are military wives on my FB you and a few others that don't really post too much about it.

Hope I'm not guilty of any of these... I don't really post a lot on FB though :)

P.S. I *HATE* when people are always posting about fighting with someone or swearing up a storm! I have a cousin that does these both on a regular basis.

Well said! Exactly the reasons why I just deleted half of my "friends"! :)

Um, the current state of one's uterus is also NOT acceptable either. Maybe because I'm not a mommy, but the gaping hole and thinning tissue where your lady bits used to be does not need to be highlighted every hour. I prefer - YAY we're in labor and YAY baby is here... skip the play by play in the middle! Your husband's friends will thank you. =)

Woo hoo! I passed the gauntlet. I dont post any of that crap. I'm sorry people are testing your limits. Gotta love that hide feature though!

You have just made me so happy I didn't reactivate my FB account after it got hacked. It was kind of starting to feel very high school-ish with all the hand-wringing over whether or not to friend or defriend someone. I think blasting arguments with a spouse has got to be my biggest disgust, however. Way to mess that up even more.

LMAO love it.
I had to especially laugh when I read kimmie's comment. Mostly because (and KK you know it) that is TOTALLY what happened with me in labor. BUT I have a lot of "birthy world" friends so for them it was all exciting too. lol

I am seriously laughing so hard i am crying.... all i can say is I LOVE THE HIDE feature! Since I last SAW you, I've hidden A LOT of people ;) And I can honestly saw I am MUCH happier! haha

~His~ said...

I would like to add that I'm tired of getting a literal play by play of your day...and the ones that post song lyrics every other post...I'm done with those people. Love the post;)

KK said...

Jen- Nope you're great and you don't post much at all anyway.

Kimmie- Hahaha I love it! Once you have kids it won't bug you so much when you are close to them.....but some people do gross me out with the play-by-plays. I don't need to know what color your discharge is, thanks.

Michael- I know! For you though everyone knows to expect it. And we all love you no matter what!

Thanks to everyone else for passing! Lol. I'm glad I could be of service!
