Things I See on Facebook That Piss Me Off.

Hey wordpress, I am back! I really haven’t had anything to blog about, until now that is.  Recently my favorite website ( experienced a really bad database crash that has left it down for the whole weekend. Thankfully it should be up some time today thanks to the wonderful staff of Subeta and the owner Keith; all of them spending countless hours away from sleep just to bring the website back. Anyways,  I have been sadly bored so I spent more time on Facebook than I usually do. And maybe this is my inner PMS bitch coming out around this time of the month, but my facebook friends are really annoying. I have an urge to make a long note on there pointing out things that specifically piss me off and tagging all the offenders in it, but I won’t. Because everyone would take it way out of proportion and take offense, even though none was really intended, I would just be pointing out what bothers me and why. So I will be mature and just list the things here, and kindly leave names out of this.


  • Changing Room Shots – These are so cliche it makes me want to cry. I would be shocked if anyone who has ever spent more than an hour a day on facebook hasn’t seen a picture like this. If you have, you know what I am talking about. A girl, usually alone (and usually “popular”), but sometimes with her friends, will put on the most expensive clothes she can find in whatever store she is in, then she will whip out her phone in the changing rooms, place one hand on her hip, position her body to be at an angle from the mirror, and cock her head as she snaps a picture and instantly loads it to facebook. I honestly don’t see the novelty in this picture… it is a pose that a majority of girls on facebook have used at least a hundred times…. and I don’t really care to see that you put on clothes that you would never be able to afford. It doesn’t make you seem more special or rich, we all know you put the designer clothes back on the rack and didn’t buy them. I have a few things by Vera Wang that I have gotten from relatives for Christmas, and while I feel stylish when wearing them; I don’t feel some entitlement just because I have a scrap of fabric on my back that some woman designed because society considers her a high class designer.
  • Boob shots – Don’t get me wrong, I love boobs. But it doesn’t mean I want to see a picture of your boobs sitting right above a picture of my new baby cousin on the main facebook page. This is another form of pose girls like to use to get attention. This one, where they hold the camera out while they bend over in a tank top or V-neck so that you can see 90% of their breasts. That smile on your face shows that you know damned well that boys are gonna be rubbing themselves to that, while others are going to be sitting there realizing that most of your pictures are the same exact pose just with different locations and different clothes. Really.
  • Streeeetcchinnggnaammmesss<3 – This is another thing that get’s me. I see this all the time. Whenever a girl is going to go hang out with one of her friends she feels the need to post it the way every other girl expresses it. They don’t say “Excited to hang out with Cindy today!” or “I cant wait to see my best friend Linda!”… oh no. They say “Liiiinnndaaa<3” or “Hangin with the bestfraaandd<3” The heart is necessary for some reason. Stretching a name or word should be used in very… VERY rare instances. If you are lucky you will pull it off without annoying anyone, but when most of your statuses are stretched words it just irks people.
  • Very Vague and Depressed Statuses  – “Sigh.. of course this would happen to me.” You work to strike curiosity  and worry in us (because we care about you) so we ask you whats wrong, and if you are okay. Only to get a reply that says “Oh I am fine. *sigh*” or “I can’t talk about it.” and “I don’t want to burden you guys with my problems.” . If any of that was the case, then why the fuck did you post that status in the first place? I have stopped asking people if they are okay all together when they post statuses like that because I know it’s just a ploy for attention. If I wanted attention I would probably go that route. I actually have posted a status like that, but when people asked what was wrong I told them, because I actually was sad and I wasn’t quite sure how to get someone to talk to. You won’t hear “I don’t want to talk about it.” from me.
  • Cindy is now Married to Linda – Cindy is best friends with Linda in hypothetical people land (Do you really think I would use the real names of my friends on facebook?). So of course they want to be known as a married couple on facebook. Not sure why this annoys me, but it just seems really pointless. Is it just me or does it feel like that is chasing away possible boyfriends because they don’t want to be below the girls best friend (thats how I would feel if I were going to date a girl who had that as her relationship status)


Anyways, I can’t think of anything else to rant about really. I am sure there is more.. but stalking facebook hasn’t brought anything up yet. Also, I really hope I don’t offend anyone, that isn’t the intent behind this. I am just merely getting things off my back without starting a huge facebook drama right before the first day of school.

Feel free to comment and tell me what you see on facebook that bothers you. I am open for all opinions!
