Annoyed and Not Loving It
(By the way, googling "Pet Peeves" comes up with some pretty funny results. I love Google. It is definitely not one of my pet peeves.)
Number Two- people who share far too much on Facebook. I know you know some of these people too. These people can be divided into a few different categories: people crying out for help, insecure lonely people, and people just too dumb to know better. This week, I have seen a woman pour out her soul, detailing everything that is wrong with her life. To her, I would like to suggest journaling her feelings privately instead of displaying her plethora of problems on the world wide web. What can come of airing your dirty laundry to 437 of your closest "friends?"
I have also seen a woman who detailed every problem in her adult son's life. I think that's even worse. I had no idea this man was involved in so much drama, but thanks to his dear mom, I now know every detail. Privacy is obviously no longer important to so many these days.
My biggest Facebook pet peeve right now is adult bullies. Television specials and newspaper columns are dedicated to teens to cyber bully one another through social media. No one seems to address the ridiculous adults who do the same thing. Also this week, I was directed to a post about my family. It was cruel, it was public, and it was embarrassing. The worst thing is that I'm actually linked to the person who posted it. The post wasn't skillfully vague so that no one would know exactly who they were talking about. It was bold, obvious, and clear to anyone who knows us. Being the classy person I am, I did not retaliate. I did not post something equally cruel or slimy. I lifted my chin a little higher, brushed off the insult, and went about my life. (Then I came here and told all of you about it.)
