FB Status Etiquette?Posted: January 25, 2011
Friends! The stuffed mushroom was ahhhmazing!! Even as a leftover! I paired it with some (frozen) veggies and it was a meal fit for a queen 🙂 It left me feeling satisfied, not I-need-to-unbutton-my-pants full.
While that lunch left me feeling great, something else did not…
Sonofabitch. Man. I just hate that. It’s forty bucks, too. What really chaps my buns is that I had just gone out to check my car not 15 minutes before. My boss sent me out to run some errands, and that’s when I found this on LaFonda (my Honda). Grrr. Okay, that was me venting. This is me moving on.
Jamie and I met up for dinner this evening! Can I just mention again that I am so happy that my BFF is doing her student teaching up here?! 😀 We have so much fun. And she’s going to be so embarrassed that I put these up.
A night out on the town…
Bar night in Farmville! (We miss those days!)
Halloween circa 2008
We chatted over soup at this fine dining establishment – maybe you’ve heard of it? Panera? 😉 I don’t have one unkind word to say about that place. I just love it.
While enjoying our soups and baguettes, we started an in depth discussion about something I think almost everyone has an opinion on: Facebook Status Etiquette. Let me preface this with the statement that I’m a self-professed Facebook stalker. I’m not ratting on anyone who’s on there 24/7. I’m on FB several times a day. Therefore, there are things that irk me, and I don’t think I’m the only one.
- Case One – The TMI Status: Telling the Facebook world that you were up all night vomiting and having diarrhea is not something anyone (not even your own mother) wants to read on their newsfeed.
- Case Two – The Blow-By-Blow Status: When typing out a paragraph-long status about waking up, showering, stubbing a toe, running to Point A, Point B and Point C, cleaning the bathroom and giving the dog a bath – does one ever think: Who really wants to know this? (Other than the person who’s stalking you and trying to find the best time to rob your house).
- Case Three – The Updated Every Five Minutes Status: Please just stop. Your clogging up my newsfeed, therefore taking away from my experience of stalking more interesting people.
- Case Four – The Compliant about the Significant Other Status: It’s awkward when you put your dirty laundry out there for everyone to see. If you’re mad at Joe (or Jane) why don’t you call him/her up and talk privately rather than writing a mean Facebook status and waiting for him/her to react?
So tell me, do you have any Facebook pet peeves? I know ya do! 🙂
That said, I’ve got to go get ready for school!! Have a relaxing night!! 🙂
