ahhhh pet peeve.
Myself and two of my cousins are getting married all in the same 5 months this year! So crazy! Anyway, one of my cousins is super nice and easygoing and easy to get along with. My other cousin is always posting shiznit pointed at anonymous people.
For instance, today’s lovely post:
I love how i can’t depend on people in my own wedding. Gotta love it. Whole day ruined. thank you XXXX, XXXX, and XXXX for actually showing up and going. We will make the best of it.”
The least she could do is the civilized thing and post her drama on WB 😉
No, but really. It drives me crazy when people post this stuff on Facebook! One weekend she posted about how someoneeee was supposed to help her and her boyfriend install their new hot tub and didn’t show up. Another time it was about how nooneeeeee ever wants to come visit them. Don’t people realize they are making it so that no one wants to be their friend when they resort to all this passive aggressive nonsense?

That is really terrible. I TOTALLY agree. I am appalled at what people post on Fbook on a daily basis. I really feel these people are craving attention-and lots of it. I know someone who is constantly doing this but it’s regarding her kids. The stuff she posts is unbelievable….really.Posting pictures of your kid in the ER because they are really sick… how about take care of your kid and get off the internet!! I really don’t think they realize no one wants to read all of their drama. I have to ‘hide’ certain people because I really can’t take it!

I hate fb. I think it is one of the worst things ever invented.
That said I don’t see the difference between posting wedding drama on fb and posting it anywhere else on the internet like here. Actually at least they are being upfront and not doing it behind people’s back. People can see their true colours and decide if they want to keep them in their lives, instead of thinking that everything is ok.

Wow. Like the people she’s calling out aren’t going to see that? How childish.

@j_jaye: Hmm… I don’t know. I think within reason posting something anonymously to people you don’t know about people that no one else knows is way different than publicly calling out people in your life in a forum filled with all your mutual friends! They both may be silly or catty, but I feel like the second one borders on slander and is super immature.

People obviously forgot you could take a phone, dial a number, and talk directly to the person to confirm they’ll be there, or ask them why they didn’t show up. Their good old 90’s self would have done that to resolve the issue.
Why does everything now needs to become public knowledge ?

@Pinkmoon: oh they did. now they are arguing in the comments section. yes, publicly. the girl she was calling out is a single mom that was moving to a new house today.

@FutureMrsT1221: Oh wow. I don’t get why people do that so publicly but I love reading it for the entertainment value!

When my dress came in, and it was wrong, and I had to send it back, I was devastated… so I posted about it on FB, along with a picture of cereal and red wine that I was having for dinner that night to ease the stress.
However, complaining about PEOPLE, is totally different. That doesn’t even have to be specifically wedding related to be annoying.
But personally, I hate when people post positive sh*t all the time. (ex: “Good morning world! Ready to tackle today!”… “I feel so blessed, I just wanted to let everyone know I love you all!”)….for fuck’s sake… lol

@LadyMoriarty: bahaha!! you made me laugh out loud. Oh, i totally think that posting about someTHING is different than posting about someONE! And I agree, the peppy stuff can get annoying too hahaha.. I just prefer it to negative nellies.

@FutureMrsT1221: I find that kind of status a bit unnecessary regardless of the topic (wedding or otherwise) but I just keep scrolling when I see something I don’t like… and if these things come regularly from a certain person I am not shy about hiding them!
ETA: Posting about dramatic THINGS is fine to me, everybody needs to vent, but it seems uncouth to vaguebook about individuals passive aggresively.

I almost posted the other day about how the least people could do is send a tiny note back on the stamped and pre-addressed envelope you provided to let you know they’re not attending your wedding. It would have shown up to several non-close family who have not rsvp’d yet. Ultimately I decided that as much as I wanted to share my vent, it was not very gracious and it wouldn’t make anything better.

@FutureMrsT1221: Thankfully, I haven’t had anyone do this about their wedding. I do have a friend who is a single mom, recent divorced, struggling. We’ve spoken in private and I totally understand that her life is really hard right now but she posts so much shit of FB all the time and it’s making me crazy. Just this week she’s posted that she wishes her kid had an off button, discribed her studio apartment as “400 feet of hell”, complained about her new job EVERY DAY and said “people need to stop telling me to hang in there and offer me some help!” as though it’s somehow my job to make her life better. She’s asked me for 3 loans in the past 5 months. I’M UNEMPLOYED. It’s insane.

I get irritated with ANY wedding stuff honestly…expect the OCCASIONAL post. Unless you are inviting every single one of your Facebook friends, I think it is rude.
