- Wedding: June 2011
I have a Facebook for one of two reasons – to stay in contact with friends, and to snoop on people =). And I generally don’t pay much attention to the drama that goes on there, or get involved, becuase I frankly don’t care. And I think that it is childish to make blantant posts about someone else, whom you are friends with or have mutual friends with, without actually naming them yet everyone knows who you are talking about.
That being said, I am not in the least bit amused when a friend of mine posted a mean, snarky post about my little sister earlier this evening. This friend, E, is also “friends” with my sister, as well as various other family memebers having met them at my wedding. E, however, has this need to place herself in the middle of other people’s business, and run her opinionated commentary on their personal situations.
My sister broke up with her boyfriend of one year a few days ago, something he was not happy about, but really had been a long time coming (they had broken up about a month ago, and she had reluctantly gotten back with him after he basically wouldn’t leave our parents’ house). Her ex has always been a bit of an oversharer on his FB posts, so he posted that he was single and heartbroken about an hour after they broke up this past weekend. And tonight he posted that he “couldn’t believe that a woman could be so cold and mean to play him like that if she didn’t love him anymore she should have ended it when she stopped loving him.”
Now, I have nothing against her ex, but he wasn’t perfect himself. And not saying that my sister is either, but their relationship was their own personal business, and not one that he needs to go bashing all over Facebook (though I can understand that he is hurt and upset). I will give him a brownie point for calling out his cousin who referred to my sister as a “nasty hag,” and her ex said there was no need for name calling.
Anyways, so as all this is going on, E makes a post about how “It’s all your fault, and you’re blaming him for everything and treating him like crap? You were the one that lied, and I hate people who lie. He did nothing wrong, you only have yourself to blame. Grow up.” Really, E? You’re telling my sister to grow up when she hasn’t posted a single thing on her wall about it, yet you who were not a member of their relationship are? Mind your own damn business. (and I am assuming the lying was about my sister saying she still loved her ex when she didn’t)
Oh, it took a lot of self restraint on my part to not call E up and give her a piece of my mind, it really did. But that was probably the big sister in me that wanted/s to defend my little sister’s honor, whether she did something wrong or not. And I don’t even know all of what happened in their relationship, nor do I need to know. That was between them, and not all of us. We aren’t the Kardashians, after all!
Okay, my vent is done. And yes, I realize that it is hypocritical of me to complain about people making posts about other on FB without stating names, and here I am doing it here. Thanks for listening!
