Ugh. I mean I don’t like those terms however I’d never do something like that because it’s beyond rude and passive-aggressive. I’d probably say something on her status like, “I’ll call my hubs and tell him to get right on that.”

I would post a passive agressive status saying “Take this pledge saying that you won’t tell other people what they can and cannot call their significant others. I, for one, love my hubbywubby!”

Be the bigger/better person and just ignore her. All sounds childish to me.

@peasantsong:  does she give a reason why she feels that you can’t refer to your dh as such?  i’d probably ignore it or maybe tell her that she can’t dictate what you call your own husband.

I wouldn’t be able to just ignore that statement completely, because that has got to be beyond irritating.  I would private message her , beacuse i dont like when people argue on Fb it’s just too 7th grade for me.  So if you private message her, don’t stoop to her level and put your business on there, and ask her what’s the problem with calling him that? And why would she have a problem with what you call your DH anyway?

I would post “Why?” under her comment on your status to see her explanation.

I would completely ignore the post she made on her own wall.

I would say, “I’ll call my Husband whatever I want, thanks.”

@peasantsong:  I’ve had friends post passive-aggressive stuff about being in relationships, men, etc. Shortly after my FI and I started dating, one “close” girlfriend of mine posted something along the lines of “I dont need a man to make me complete. I’m loving my life as is: going with my friends, being fabulous, spending money on things I shouldnt, and being single.”

Uhm, it actually just screams “I’m lonely!” Your friend’s post is stupid, and that’s exactly how she’ll look to everyone who sees it. 

I actually second @jocember‘s suggestion.. hilarious AND sarcastic!!

@peasantsong:  I would delete it on fb because that’s just plain rude. and I’d also ask her in private in a calm way what was up with that post. Problem with fb is that sometimes jokes get lost in text. Maybe she was joking, maybe she was being rude, you won’t know until you ask he straight on. Tell her it hurt your feelings bcs you felt judged by her.

If I responded to every annoying post on facebook I wouldn’t do anything else with my time. Immaturity should not be countered with more immaturity.

Also: “she really is a close friend, but she has a tendency to be a condescending, judgemental bitch and I hate that about her”

Then, why are you friends with her?
