Another Facebook rant

Posted on

Wow, it does seem like I've spent all morning on the computer, but really I've accomplished many things today, (laundry, plant maintenance, cleaned the remotes with rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush).

I have also checked Facebook twice already.

Am I Crackbook addict? I don't think so. I check it a couple of times a day. Usually it's a familiar report of people I 'know' whose kids are sick, are complaining of the weather, and relating hockey tournament results.

I have blocked one guy for about a year now. He would update his status several times a day and it was always political: whining about a proposed tax, an act that should be passed, what nationality soldier died where doing what, etc, sprinkled with requests to join, 'Canadians for Whatever'. Bah.

I am considering blocking someone else. She is a person I knew in the 5th grade. She was nice enough, but so desperate for friends, it was exhausting. She was always promising gifts, or trips to the mall. She talked about her birthday party 6 months in advance and never had one, (I'm sure she had a not so great home life).

It doesn't appear that much has changed for her. She posts status updates up to 10 times a day. She responds immediately to anyone that has written anything regarding her status.

I decided to air my grievances about this woman here and VOx and checked her 'wall' because I was simply going to copy and paste some of her recent Facebook woes, but ah ha! She deleted it, so I will have to go by memory… some are real, some are based on memory…

2day will probly be my last day on here for a while I need a break from here

Today's lovely sharing time consisted of her asking if you are her 'friend' to click the 'like' button…. just checked… herself and 15 out of 301 friends have clicked 'like'.  I have been so tempted to be a) nice and b) mean. When she 'threatens' to leave Facebook, I want to post, 'JUST LEAVE ALREADY! Nobody will miss you or your lack of punctuation, poor grammar and spelling!' Seriously, she says she is going to leave Facebook every other week.

So, am I going to block her? Probably not. Annoying people can be entertaining. Go ahead BMW, make her day and friend request her, just for fun.

Also, I understand if no lurkers out there made it to the end of this post… It annoyed even me. Maybe I should just leave Vox… JUST KIDDING!

    NO! You have to lurk! You have to join! I went to all that trouble last year to figure out your real identity and I have no use for it!
