Facebook and young family

Postby knapplc » Thu Oct 01, 2009 11:46 pm

Here's why you don't "friend" your young family members on Facebook. I'm pissed drunk and feeling REALLY miserable after a horrible day at work, and I just realized that if I talk about it on FB, my young niece, nephew and grandneices and grandnephews will read it.

Bah. Stupid family.

It's been a bad day. How the hell do you make a bad day better? Plowed by Sponge and a bottle of wine aren't cutting it.

Their mom is a full-blown alcoholic. Can't, man. They don't need another sobbing sloppy stupid sot in their lives at the moment. And the grandnieces and nephews are too young, entirely too young.

Mostly I'm just whining about my shotty day. I had to talk to some people who are pretty much terminal today, and a friend's daughter just found out today she's got terminal cancer, and I had an argument with my church's stupid bank, and my day off tomorrow turned into a babysitting day because my daughter's school is off for some stupid reason, and I've just about had it.

I need to suck it up and stop being a whining ass. I know. But it's been a rough day.

If you find that by having them as "friends" you can't say what you want to, you should remove them.

I know that's not the p.c thing to say, but it's what I'd do. O:-)

I don't add any family members unless they are close to my age. Facebook is for keeping up with friends, family always have moms to talk about our lives.

You're almost there. Try 'Fields' and a 4 pack of Unibroue. +1 on both fronts...

Seriously though, Aussie's definitely right. Sleep fixes everything. If I'm ever feeling sore or stressed or in a crappy mood, I shoot for a 9 hour night. It might be the best thing ever.

1. Facebook is for losers. Get a life and get rid of your account.
2. What makes you think your older relatives want to read your gripes?
3. Stop drinking. There is nothing good or beneficial about alcohol.
4. Suck it up and stop being a whining ass.
5. On my facebook account I friend relatives of any age, but then, my life is very interesting so it's the least I can do to let them know what I'm up to.

You have the keen eye of a trained observer, Neato. Are you, like, a detective or something?
