More People Who Post More Annoying Things on Facebook

A few months ago I wrote this list of annoying Facebook habits.  Today I have some more to add:

1.  Adults who post they going to accompany their spouse and/or partner to doctors' appointments.

Busy day!  Took the day off today so I could take Brennan to lunch and then the dentist!

WTF?  You are grown adults.  Unless you are required to have anesthesia you do not need a designated driver for the dentist.  Grow a pair, Brennan, and drive yourself.

2.  Anyone who posts their Pinterest pins.  When you pin something and it asks if you want to notify all your friends on Facebook, just say NO.  None of us care about most of that crap.  Plus, if I want to see what your dream kitchen looks like, I'll check out your Pinterest account.

And for the love of all things holy, stop with the Keep Calm and Carry On/Pet a Puppy/Watch Out for Zombies/whatever new fucking thing is we're saying now.

I hate these things.
3.  People who make their Facebook and Twitter statuses the same and/or combined!?  I fucking hate hashtags and that's why I'm not on Twitter very much.  Keep the hashtags off my Facebook feed.  It drives me nuts and I'm never going to go log onto Twitter to see what the hell your #supafly means.

4.  People who post scripture.  Truly, this is the most ironic thing for me when you look at my friends' list.  The majority of my "friends" who continually post scripture and religious pictures are the ones who were the biggest assholes to me back in the day and still never comment on anything I say on FB or, God forbid, interact with me in any way in the flesh.  All of a sudden NOW they're all spiritual?  Have they repented or something and now they think they can save me?  The really ironic part is the ones who I know go to church every Sunday, pray regularly, talk to me in public, (even read this blog) - you know, walk the walk and talk the talk - are the ones who NEVER inundate my FB feed with scripture.  Really makes me wonder.

5.  Anyone using a Jeremy Lin pun.  Everyone is excited about Jeremy, the Hubs included.  This is a pretty big deal with the Asian community and I get it, but can we please stop with the puns on his name??  Ugh.  Here are a few I saw tonight:  Lin-sanity, Lin-credible, Lin-conceivable, but, of course, this is my favorite:

Classy!
6.  People who post quotes that are supposed to be inspirational.  Ugh.  I left the corporate world long ago so I wouldn't have to look at another poster that said shit like "What Would You Attempt to do if You Knew You Could Not Fail?"  (Buy lottery tickets.)  That's what Pinterest is for.  Put that shit on Pinterest so I never have to see it.

7.  People who kiss ass.  I don't know how to explain this one very easily.  I have a friend on FB who posts the most annoying shit like, Taking in another gorgeous sunset on my patio with my even more gorgeous wife.  She is my all.  And then his friends will comment on his bullshit musings with stuff like:
  • Well said, partner. 
  • You have an amazing woman there, lucky guy.
  • Cherish this time together.
  • You have such a gift with words, Horace.
Seriously?  I get it on my wall too - but I am a genius with my musings and I deserve all the ass kissing I get, this guy is just a hack.

8.  People who photograph their dinners.  I am scrolling through my Facebook as I write this and I've seen no fewer than 7 photographs of my friends' dinners.  Only one looks good enough to eat.  What is this all about?  Is this a new form of overachieving??

9.  People who "check in."  Why do I care that you're at Costco or Starbucks or Disneyland?  This is when I totally need a WTFC? button.

10.  Stop making your baby bump and/or sonogram pics your profile picture.

I know, I know, we're all guilty of this stuff just about every day, but the bottom line is if I like you a lot then you can post just about anything on Facebook and I'll read it and comment and "like" it.  If I think you're kind of a douche then no matter what you write on Facebook irritates me.  It's probably time to clean house and get rid of some of my "friends," but then who would I have left to make fun of?

Just so you know I'm not perfect, here is a random sampling of my boring and/or annoying comments on FB lately:

  • BLAH.  B-L-A-H.  This weather makes me feel blah.  Blah.
  • A friend posted a picture of a pen with my real estate logo on it and I totally whored myself out.
  • Got my heart-shaped pizza!
  • Pimped out links to about a bazillion times to HuffPost pages I wrote.
See?  I need help just as much as the next guy.

  1. You nailed it with the scriptures people. All the people on my news feed are the same exact way! And I only check in when I get some sort of special discount for doing it.

  2. Glad I'm not the only one who hates the damn hashtags. I don't have a Twitter account because I can't think of anyone I feel deserves to be followed that much during the day.

    I did post the photo of the Tex Mex dinner I had a few weeks back, but that was mainly to make my husband jealous since I was in Texas with the kids and he was stuck back at work in New Jersey.

  3. how about people that post all the chores they did that day? "breakfast cleaned up, 2 loads of laundry done,cooked lunch, changed sheets, vaccumed. PHEW! What a Day!!" Give me an effing break.

    1. Ok, but it says "Status Update" - status is defined by Websters as the state or condition of affairs. My current state of affairs is doing chores, so why shouldn't I post that?

    2. Thank you for the vocabulary lesson Kate. I feel smarter already.

      Delete
    3. Kate, you shouldn't post your chores because we've all got the same ones. No one cares about your chores. No one cares about my chores, either, that's why I don't post about them. Do you really think chores are interesting to post about, or are you just that bored?

      Delete
    4. I think (and hope) Kate is simply being facetious. Otherwise known as "sarcastic." Otherwise Kate needs to get a life. ;) (no offense, Kate!)

      Delete
    5. I don't post my chores list but I don't get mad or even annoyed if people do. I just think that Facebook is something different to every one and there is nothing wrong with using it as you see fit.

  5. You just pointed out ALL the things driving me nuts on FB lately. Though I'm guilty of "checking in". My gym gives members free stuff for every 20 check in's. I'm cheap and a sucker for free stuff, so I will check in every day :)

    1. At least you have a valid reason. Most people do it just to "show off!" I mean, if you live in a city, it might make sense. Maybe someone you know will happen to be in the same area as the place you checked into, and will stop in. But for the rest of us, there's no reason for it other than to say, "Oh, look where I am! Aren't I so cool?!" Thank God for this blog--it lets me know that there are still some people out there who aren't narcissistic attention-seeking a-holes!

  9. hilarious! get out of my head! lol!the most annoying check in i see (and i see it alot)is when parents have their kids at urgent care or ER. OMG, your kid is sick and you actually take the time to check in . i want to poke my eyeballs out when i see this. hey, here's an idea...just be with your sick kid.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes!!! Your kid is sick enough to be at the ER & you are checking FB. What is wrong with people?

      Delete
    2. What about the people that take pictures of their kids in the ER/Doctor. A "friend" posted pictures of her kid getting allergy testing - needle sticks all over his back. Why??

      Delete
    3. i'm guilty of going on facebook while in the ER with my children. reason being is because we're waiting on the dr and my kid is laying down on the bed sleeping. so i will kill my time on my phone on facebook. think about those things before you say something because there are always circumstances. just because i'm on facebook or someone you know was on facebook and with their kid in the ER doesn't mean they aren't ''there'' for their kid. plus, some people are attention whores and want sympathy.

      Delete
    4. Oh, now I am guilty of this...only because my (16 year old) daughter is so awesome that I had to share it with friends and family. While at the ER to be seen about possible strep throat, they put a mask on her and sent her into the waiting room, where she sat down next to a man looking nervously at her, turned to him, and very seriously said, "don't mind me, it's just a little leprosy." So pic of her in the mask and her smartass comment became a status update.

    6. I am not talking about playing on your phone while you wait at the doc or taking a silly pic (although i agree i hate the pics of sick miserable kids or allergy tests...i have seen this too). I am just saying if someone is sick enough to be at urgent care or the ER you don't need to "check in" on foursquare. lol!

  10. A few of my personal faves:
    -the idiot that "likes" their OWN status or picture...we know you like it, fool, you posted it. DUH!
    -those annoying re-posts that start out "let see how many of you read my status" or "how many people have enough balls to repost"
    -the girl who keeps taking the SAME EFFING PICTURE of herself driving to work EVERY EFFING DAY and posts it....with a comment that says "OMG i look such a mess!" then WHY THE F%#K did you post it???
    im done!

    1. All of these!! Seriously, why like your own status? It's like giving yourself a high five. I have a few "friends" that like everything they post. There seriously needs to be a dislike button or as Jen says a WTFC button. That'd be epic.

  12. The scripture people get the 'Hide All by' or 'unsubscribe to' button on the first offense. You know there's more where that came from. This Pinterest thing promises to be the most annoying thing we'll encounter this year besides of course the douche canoe Republican presidential candidates. I'll be staying a country mile away from both.

    ReplyDelete
  13. LOL You crack me up! BTW, I just posted a picture of last night's dinner. In the toilet. Top that one, dinner-picture-takers! ;)

    I'm all about the scripture one, too. It's annoying when I'm inundated with daily scriptures. Are you a pastor? No. Is this the Sunday School blog? No. I have a friend that posts scripture AND how super awesome homeschooling is. Gag. Whatever. I have twin boys that are 6-years-old. I'm happy to see them gone during the day getting a good education with the DoDE. Bye, kids! Have a good day. Now... back to Facebook.

  17. I agree with every single one of these, especially Pinterest!
    Does everyone realize Pinterest should NOT get credit for anything on their site? All credit should be given to the blog writers who are posting these crafty projects or delicious recipes. It might shock some people, but you can find all of this using any search engine. No need to register or get an invite. You're probably already being tracked on the Internet anyway, why give the hackers more material by registering to use Pinterest? It's a waste of time.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I totally agree with posting anything Pinterest to Facebook...who really cares what you pinned? But, as far as Pinterest goes, the credit does go to the blogger...it links directly to their site. I have actually discovered quite a few blogs that way.
      Pinterest is for cataloging your interests. Haven't you ever been on a website that had something you really liked only to forget what that website was when you wanted to go back to it?
      Personally, my pins are for me, not for anyone else. I love this site.

      Delete
  18. your blog is genius! I've been following you for the past 2-3 months, but really....where have you been all my life? The list of annoying FB-er's are THE BEST! I chose to give up FB for Lent. By doing this, I'll be clearing my head of all negativity.

  19. For everyone saying they check in to get free stuff: if you are checking in with Foursquare (or any other app that isn't FB), you can not choose to share with FB, just like when you pin something on Pinterest.

  22. OMG this is hilarious. You forgot the whiney, please-notice-me updates like "Im in the depths of dispair today" or "my heart is broken" with no other explination. I also get a kick out of the "Leaving FB for awhile" people - again, screaming for attention.

  23. Number 7 is the one that gets me. when someone posts: "I have the best spouse in the whole world and I love you so much baby. I would be lost without you". Umm, wait a minute aren't you the one who has cheated on said spouse like a dozen of times? Or weren't you just talking about getting a divorce last week? Shoot me now please

    ReplyDelete
  24. What about the people who report the news like they're CNN or something? Drives me nuts.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'll admit, I'm one of the few who has done several of these things....but that was when I first got on Facebook. Now, who cares. I post things now when people haven't seen or heard from me in a few days, just to let them know I'm still alive.

    I think I need to go irritate Jen now by posting back to back things starting with a picture of the leftover pizza for lunch and then we'll move on to what I've done today and close it out with a gag me with a spoon letter to my hubby about the things that went on in the bedroom the other night!

    Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I also can't stand the ones who post "oh I we just did this that and the other thing together, I am so lucky with my wonderful family" PUNCH!!! Or, I just cleaned my house from top to bottom, stacked 40 cords of wood, and now I am making a birdhouse" PUNCH again!! "My boyfriend and I just had another magical date in the city, we went to the pub" PUNCH a third time! Drives me crazy with everyone posting how 'perfect' their lives are, when in reality, I know their secrets and their lives are far far far from perfect. Drives me nuts.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Or how about the people who post "all I want to do is cry" or "my life is such a mess" and when people ask what's wrong they say they don't want to talk about. So why the F--k did you post something?

    1. That one gets me too! They're in the pit of despair about to get tortured and after two dozen "are you okay" and "here for you... What's up" comments they say "message me"!! Really, you just involved all of Facebook in your problems and now you're getting private?? That and when people post a vague "people better watch what they say...you dont want to be on my bad side" ...clearly they're talking about someone specific- man up and name names already!

      Delete
  29. Agreed.

    What gets me are the people who constantly only talk about their kids. Do they not have a life outside of their special snowflake? Especially when it is only to brag about what new thing their little tyke is doing every second of the day.

    "Emmuleigh is so smart. She told me what a cow says. Can you beileve it? She's only four months old. My little genius. *Insert heart icon here*"

    I don't give a rip!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I get the feeling that if those of us who end up posting about our kids posted about other stuff we like, you'd be equally disdainful. In a single mom, I *don't* have much of a life outside my daughter aside from what I watch on TV and video games. So in the end, a lot of posts end up being about my daughter because (shocker) that's who I spend most of my time with.

      I think this is the first time I've really been disappointed in this blog. I was expecting something better, but most of the people on my friend's list do those things often. I enjoy seeing what people are up to on Pintrest, and what people are doing in their day, even if it's mundane stuff. Not being able to get out a ton, it makes me still feel connected to the real world.

      Everyone's entitled to their opinions, of course, but I just found this a bit depressing. I fully believe that if it's something you engage in the behavior, then you probably shouldn't be throwing stones about it. What *is* a worthy Facebook post, then? I'm lost after reading this. If I were to take this to heart (I won't), I think I'd be utterly confused as to what to post. Posting about my kids, family, food, or pretty much anything or anywhere I go = off limits.

      And the first one really bugs me. Sorry. Punch in the face. Some of us have horrible dental/medical anxiety. I couldn't drive myself to the dentist if I wanted to. And don't assume you know why someone's accompanying someone else. Maybe there's a serious problem they aren't letting on (like when I accompanied my mom to a doctor appointment where they did a catscan to check for tumors).

  31. People who have status updates that are political posts on facebook. I have a one strike you're out policy (as in I will delete you as a friend if you status update w/political crap once).
    If you want to post political crap on a friend's page, then fine, but the whole world doesn't give a crap. I don't care that you think Obama is a baby killer or that Sarah Palin is an idiot. Really! I don't care and I'm not on facebook to hear some crazy crap about some stupid politician.

  38. Guilty as charged. I'm a whore for retail discounts, so I check-in where they will give me a discount. A quote means nothing to me and actually makes me think less of you. I like to post inaccurate quotes like "Pintrest can only waste your life" George Washington. Ha, ha

  40. I have HAD IT with all the pics of everyone's ashy foreheads today and their pious declarations about what they are giving up for Lent. It ties in so well with your #4. These are the same hypocrites who always write how "blessed" they are and who tell people to "have a blessed day!" I think I just might give up those "friends" for Lent...

    ReplyDelete
  41. #11 The people who constantly update you on their workout/diet. I have friends who post every fucking day about how many miles they ran on the treadmill, what kind of nasty ass healthy smoothie they drank and how much weight they lost so far. No, I do not care that you're doing Turbo Kick/Zumba/Spinning/Body Pump tonight. I get tired just reading it and it makes my fat ass feel even worse about vegging out on the couch lusting over Shemar Moore on Criminal Minds.

  43. While I am guilty of a couple of these, I am on board with a LOT of these with you... I do sometimes accompany my husband to his appointments, and that is because he has some real issues and can never remember to ask certain questions or relay the information back to me properly... LOL.. so I have to.

    The scripture thing is the worse!! And I also do quotes, but mostly they are fun and witty (and don't you say otherwise!) Like my most recent fav was "Having children doesn't make you a parent any more than having a piano makes you a pianist."

    What I hate is people who constantly take hundreds of pictures of themselves either 1) in front of the bathroom mirror or 2) with their webcam, and post them ALL.... get a life, whore!

    1. what irritates me is people that do the bathroom mirror thing are doing it wrong! turn your camera or phone around and look on your phone or camera to see if you're centered in it AND THEN take the picture.

  44. I adore you! I love this ALMOST as much as the story of how you met your hubs. Mostly because it is damn near EXACTLY how I met mine. I agree that the scriptures are the most annoying especially since I've seen some of these asshats drunk and behaving nothing like a Christian. Love Love Love your blog!

  45. Ooh, how about the "You're going to the dentist/doctor/party/I don't give a fuck..." and then list the first 10 people to the left of the page. I've seriously deleted people for tagging me in that shit, GTFU people!
    This blog is awesome though, thanks for making my day!!!

  46. Pinterest doesn't ask me...it just posts everything on my wall. But I can't see it in my feed and only know because my husband made fun of my pinning (but quickly shut up when I made homemade snickers!!) Hate the scriptures/motivational crap. I generally just write shit my kids say. And don't get me started on food picture! Everyone and their mom takes "artsy" pictures of their food and we don't care! Although I did take pics of my snickers because they were that awesome!

  47. Number one made me think of this:

    Here's someone to punch in the throat: Grown adults who need their mothers to help them take their child to wellness check-ups. What?! Did you read that right? Yep, a 30 year old parent needs her mom to help her take her 16 month old to the doctor (every time!) because she can't handle/comprehend taking care of the kid and remembering what the doctor said without her mommy with her.

    The best part is that neither one apparently listens to anything the doctor says because the 16 month old still sucks down bottles (not sippy cups) of formula (not milk or water-God forbid), has to be lying down to have anything to drink (otherwise he might choke, you know), and maybe gets a quarter of a piece of pizza (cut into miniscule pieces so he doesn't choke on those either) for his lunch AND dinner.

    I want to punch them both in the throat so badly. Alas, I can't because it would start World War III with my sister- and mother-in-law, the culprits. So, I just read your blog and feel better about the crazies in my life by reading about the crazies in your life. :)

  48. This somewhat goes along with your scripture petpeeve, but it drives me INSANE when people pray on Facebook! Jesus doesn't have a Facebook page and I am pretty sure that if he did he would delete your stupid ass for constantly whining to him to help you pass your chem test! Oh, and people who post all of their religious happenings and then bash others for their actions or life path... Last time I checked, your name wasn't Jesus. Practice what you preach and shut the hell up.

  49. My biggest pet peeve. When someone states something like "it's really sad when other people have to start drama and put others down to make themselves feel better....yada yada yada..." If you're going to call someone out, dial their phone number and have an adult conversation. If you're that afraid and have to hide behind facebook, at least call them out by name. GEEZ! We're not 14 years old anymore people.

  51. More good reasons why I'm not a Facebook drone. What irks me are the dinner photos on blogs. Food photography can be a beautiful thing, but people need to ease up on the Instagram and Hipstamatic fiddling because it makes their food look unappetizing.

  54. You know what annoys me most on Facebook? Adults with grammar worse than a 5th grader. It makes me wonder how in the hell they got through school and obtained the degrees some of them have. One lady is a teacher, but the way she types, makes me wonder what she's teaching those poor kids. smh. I see ALL the time, "Have a bless day." A what? A blessed day maybe? They have the hardest time with past tense words. "I was suppose to go the grocery store today." SUPPOSED, damnit! Maybe I'm weird for that bothering me, but damn, it's so simple.

  55. I loved this post so much. For some reason, pictures of what people are about to eat make me gag. My biggest Facebook pet-peeve is when people do what I call 'vague-booking".. when their status update is "SIGH.." or "Hope things go well for me today..." or when they are posting a dig at someone they have a beef with, and no one knows what they're talking about.. "Jeez! Some people are just so selfish".. These people are just begging for attention, and they need to be punched hard.

  56. The young mother who is constantly taking pictures of herself in barely-there outfits. When her friends comment that she is "so photogenic" or looks like celebrity so-and-so, she replies "I can't help it" or "I'm way prettier than her!" Well, you WERE gorgeous. Then you opened your mouth.

  57. YES. Oh my gosh the hashtags drive me CRAZY. I'm one of those oddballs who thinks that Twitter is completely pointless and stupid and I do not understand the hashtags. LEAVE THEM ON TWITTER.

    My biggest pet peeve with Facebook lately actually has a little to do with your political post a few days ago. I have friends who post political statements or opinions that invite debate as their status, and as soon as people start commenting back and forth about differing opinions, the status poster FLIPS out and goes on about how "I DID NOT WANT THIS TO BE A DEBATE AND I WILL DELETE YOU IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE YOURSELF." I understand debating civilly versus just plain yelling and insulting one another, but if you don't want a debate, DON'T POST THE STATUS. Good Lord, use some foresight!

  58. Love this post. The scripture thing really bugs me too and I will never re-post them and generally roll my eyes whenever I see one. Which really makes my feel like shit because I was raised Catholic and you know how that religion is about guilt. I'm always afraid when I do roll my eyes at these posts that I just signed my one way ticket to hell. Well, at least it'll be warm. One of my pet peeves-I have a friend who posts her every move, allll fucking day.
    "Just got up, getting a coffee."
    "Breakfast with my little muffin."
    "Heading out to do errands." (Glad you posted that, now the robbers will know when would be a good time to knock off your house.)
    "I have such a headache" (Well, stop staring at a fuckin computer screen... it works wonders.)
    I could go on, but you get the idea. Hate the # twitter thing and pinterest? I consider that my own personal bookmark thingamajig so I don't have to load up my bookmarks thing on my browswer with sites that have ideas I might try. Why the hell would I want that on facebook? Keep up the great work! Every time you post something, it's like you read my mind!

  61. I totally agree with you about facebook, that's one of the reasons why I have taken a bit of a break from the whole FB shit.

    What else I hate is when people only update their status' with shit about their kids. "My Johnny made two goals tonight" or "my little susie is so talented" shit like that, I wouldn't have a problem with it if it weren't the only thing they ever say.

    Also I hate it when people post nightly what kind of wine they are drinking....fuck who gives a care that you are drinking, all it does is make you sound like a drunk, and likely you are since your teenage daughter is fucking pregnant at 17, but hey you are loving your fucking wine tonight!!!

  62. Ummmm...guilty of posting photos of dinner.

  64. Here's what confuses me- Facebook asks for a status update. If my current status is doing chores, or hanging out with my daughter, or one of the hundred other things that "annoy" all of you- why shouldn't I post that? If you're so sensitive that you can't handle reading someone's status updates without flying into a rage get the fuck off FB.

    3. I'm with Jen- chill, it's not that serious. I do some of the annoying stuff and I'm not getting bent out of shape because someone finds it annoying. I'd be kidding myself if I didn't think some people hide my posts- especially the raunchy ones ;-)

    5. Wouldn't be much of an article about annoying Facebook habits if she didn't talk about annoying Facebook habits.

    6. Here's a hint on status updates: they aren't mandatory. There is no law requiring it. Thus, when you post them, we will actually judge whether some purpose was served other than self-flaggellation.

      If you can't handle that, get the fuck off my planet. :)

  65. Ok - normally I agree with you, but what is it that you think Facebook is supposed to be for? We all know people make stuff up to make their marriage look better/make it look like they are the best wife mother/make their life look totally interesting/to make other people jealous on Facebook. I don't know why you would still continue to be on it if this stuff bugs you, because that's all it is, really. Especially when you don't post pictures of food, but tell people when your food arrives. :-) Sorry, still love your blog!

    Just enough to get people to ask questions. And when they do, the person either doesn't reply (waiting for more enquiring minds) or replies with "I can't say" or "I'll private message you" WTF? If you don't want people to know your shit, don't write ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!! Drives me NUTS!

  74. I think every type of dumb status is okay in moderation, it's when somebody does it all the time that it becomes annoying. If you're posting 10 times a day about the boring chores you're doing, or posting a picture of food every night, or only saying dumb stuff about your kids ... that's when I want to hide you. If you only do these types of things occasionally, I will let it go. Except the ultrasound-as-profile-picture. That's NEVER acceptable.

People do what makes them happy (in most cases) and don't intend to hurt anyone. It may be lame but GTFOI. As said on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (yeah I like it so "cut me" if ya want to) you are "Angry Spice" Take a pill (or whatever you intellectual nonconformists but really just conformists trying to be cool - take for anxiety, get laid or do some yoga for crying out loud.

  80. I have to stick up for the people who drive other people to the dentist. I am a dental assistant and some people have to be pre-medicated for their appointment. They could just be plum scared of us, on BP meds and have to be medicated so they won't tap out while getting work done, or their medicines might have the opposite affect and the pre-meds help. BUT, there are some people who are just dumb and go for the ride.....

    As for taking pictures of their food, that totally annoys the crap out of me! I could care less of what you are eating!! I am guilty of the pregnant pictures. Mainly did it so my parents who lived in another state could see the growing stomach. Another annoying thing is how people update their statuses (?) 8 million times a day.

He's deployed so they can't do it in person, but there is this highly visible "Message" button for PRIVATE messages!

  97. Here is my list. I teach a Facebook CE class for Real Estate agents and while you hit on most of what I say not to do, here are a few that drive me batty.
    1.) Conspiracy theories: Don't get me wrong they are great for a laugh and a "are you freakin' kidding me" but seriously give it a break (it might be that I spend too much time on Facebook between midnight and 3am)
    2.) The "I just washed 3 loads of clothes, now I have to mop the floor while I make spaghetti, then I have to go to the store for cheese curls for the kids lunch" Thank you for posting your to-do list it was so stimulating.
    3.) Posting songs from the 80's that were bad in the 80's.
    4.) Have to throw a real estate one in... "Showing houses to two different buyers today, just got three offers on my listings, and I am closing on two more this week" Hello, Mr. Agent, other agents can look up what you have sold on the MLS and they KNOW you are lying. Everybody hates a bragger.

  102. This blog is hysterical! I'd like to throw in my 2 cents worth.
    Punch: People that "like" inappropriately. You know, the status says, "Grandma passed away today. She was such a wonderful person and will be missed." Why on earth would anyone "like" that status? That's just rude.
    Here's a few mini punches that have been mentioned in the comments already -
    Mini punch: People that "like" their own status. Obviously you like it or else you wouldn't have wasted time posting it.
    Mini punch: People that post the exact times of when they will go on vacation OR check into different places. That's just begging someone to break into your house. I think the burgular may even have a decent defense against you. "But your honor! I wasn't stealing. It was on facebook that they were going to be out of town and I was just watering the plants!"
    Mini punch: People that post all day long. That gets you blocked from my list. Sure, facebook might be different things to different people but to me it's entertainment. I don't care about driving to the grocery store, the great nap you had, or all the crap your overachieving Elf on the Shelf did over the holidays. ; )

    I'm guilty of the food one but it's usually a recipe I have talked to a friend about and showing them that it got accomplished without looking like a science experiment.
    I CAN'T stand people who post "hints" about stuff and then when you ask them what's up they answer with "I can't say just yet but you'll know real soon". Seriously? Then post your little hint then!
    The only thing I ever "sign in" for is my husband's basketball games but I live in a small town so I don't worry much about someone seeing that means the house is empty.
    I don't have a twitter. Don't see the point of it really so the whole hash tag thing is still confusing to me.

I had a little reality face-smack a few days ago, though, when someone asked me if it's the new "in" thing to bitch constantly about what not to do on Facebook, and THEN asked me if I happen to have a list handy of ACCEPTABLE Facebook behavior... I do not.
    You will never win. Logging in to Facebook is the same as going to any large, crowded place. Except, instead of only dealing with the kind of crowd you'd see at church, or only dealing with the crowd you'd hang with at a Mötley Crüe concert, you've blended them and put all of their stupid habits in one place. In writing. Keep Calm and Take A Picture Of Your Cat Eating Cheerios, Sayeth The Lord.

  107. Ugh. Hope your posts are not as filthy as your mouth. You seem to write fairly well. No need to hide your commentary with all the garbage.

  108. Throat Punches:

    -- Gym check-ins and only gym check-ins. You're exercising -- we get it. Here's a rice cake, now fuck off.

    -- People who are updating their Facebook status like they are on Twitter:

    "I love that new Target color commercial"

    "Bazinga!"

    "Mmm. McDonald's Chicken McBites are yummy!"

    THAT is precisely what Twitter is for you self-absorbed twit!

    -- Compliment-fishing + Ass-kissing friends double punch:

    "My daughter made the honor roll....AGAIN!"

    - "Oh, she takes after her smart mama!"

    "I have the best kids EVER!"

    - "You have good kids because they have the best mom EVER!"

    - "You've done a wonderful job with them!"

    -- A Kid's Gymboree Outfit-of-the-Day Pic (Seriously)

    -- Shilling of any kind:

    Scentsy, Pampered Chef, 31, Premier Jewelry, etc.

    -- Passive-Aggressive posts to random people who have wronged them:

    "Dear lady in front of me at Starbucks...."

    Um, is that random lady friends with you on FB? No? Then, how is she going to see this? Oh, she isn't. I just have to! Lovely!

    1. "You're exercising -- we get it. Here's a rice cake, now fuck off."

      Funniest thing I've read in a long time. I'd actually enjoy facebook if it were acceptable for people to be this honest in reply.

  109. I think we are all guilty of being total Lamebookers from time to time. What separates us from them though is that we are only guilty occasionally of the crimes that have been listed. The TRUE offenders are consistently guilty of one or more infractions with EVERY FRIGGING UPDATE that they post. And they are the ones who should be punched.

  110. My coworkers posting things as their status updates that they don't have the balls to say at work. Like they are not friends with everyone from work on FB and it's just a total shamethey can't act like adults.
    I'm a big mouth and will call them out on it the next day every time. I don't understand why they Feel the need to continue doing it. It's like a deer in the headlight every time I say something to them the next day.
    Oh, and #2b the signs, driving me nuts!!! Love your blog BTW!

  111. Jen...I've been following you since December and this is the first post of yours I've been compelled to reply to...from one working mom to another, love your blog!

    #2...Just started Pinterest this week and don't see the purpose. I have 5 followers...WTF does that mean? What exactly are they following??
    #4...those people don't actually believe what they "preach/live"...the only "inundating" I'll EVER do of your site is this link, which is both provocative and controversial in itself http://chiselseason.com/?p=768
    #8...GUILTY! I actually thought I was "enticing" my friends with a picture of the meal I had just made but I realized that I suck at taking pictures of food and should stick with posting the recipes
    #9...AGAIN, GUILTY! After reading your opinion of people who do this, I will NEVER do it again..because, WTFC!!!! I get it now, thanks for helping me see the light.

    LOVE your blog...keep it up!!!

  112. All good ones! I'm am glad I have not been guilty of those...but I'm sure there are many others that I deserve a punch for. Love your blog!

  113. I'm guilty of most of these. I'm a total facebook whore, I fully admit it.

    Even in all of my FB whoreishness I've never EVER NEVER EVER EVER NEVER EVER been compelled to write updates about the status of my child's potty training. Sally pooped on the potty! Johnny went pee pee in the big boy toilet! Jenny waited to pee pee until we got home and was dry the whole time we were out!

    The WORST is when their kid takes a shit in the toilet and they TAKE A PICTURE OF IT and post it to Facebook. A lot of times I'm multi-tasking and choking down my lunch while trying to catch up on the FB world and seriously I know I post a lot of stupid shit, but do these people have to literally post their kid's shit???

  115. I have one FB friend who literally only posts about her snot nosed kids (they sound like little assholes) or how sick/in pain she is. I have now blocked her feed. I have also blocked my sister's feed because she is OBSESSED with her fricken dog. She even has it as her profile picture and declared he was her valentine. Don't really wanna be thinking about that.

    Since blocking these feeds I have become a little more conscious about what I post on FB. I often customise the links I am putting up so that certain people can't see them. I find it easier than having them post passive aggressive status updates on their own walls about how they're sick of people posting about certain topics (which coincidentally I posted about 5 minutes before).

  116. I love this!
    How about:
    People who post about how much their kids love their organic vegan diet!
    How much crap they buy!
    Huge run on sentences with zero punctuation!
    How wasted they are!
    Political stuff all day, every day! I live in Madison, WI and this is HUGE here.
    Oh I could go on and on!
    I am guilty of a number of the ones you had and I do some that have annoying potential:
    I use lots of exclamation points! See above.
    I use lots of smiley/sad faces. If there was a fb emoticon app I would wear that sucker out! :)
    Love your blog! :)

  117. I have a new Facebook practice. The people on my friends list are there for a reason, so I do not want to 'unfriend' them. I also have a lot of people that I do not know who are on my list because of my blog. I unsubscribe from them. If they're posts bore me or clutter up my page then they get unsubscribed. We are still Facebook friends, but I don't have to see a hundred pictures of your cat.

  118. Oh and I forgot people who post 1000 pics of their fabulous vacation 1 pic at a time! I am happy for you that you went wherever, but about a pic a day is good enough!
