I know pretty much all us bees who have facebook while planning our wedding have had to deal with people trying to invite themselves and asking awkward questions about your wedding plans on your wall and such. I had hoped this would stop after the wedding, but no such look. I’ve also gotten used to the ‘when will you have a baby question’ with not really answering, just giving vague terms. But I just posted a photo of our new house I’m super pumped about, and a girl I know comments on the pic saying, ‘how much did that run you’.
Why on earth do people think it is okay to ask such prying questions? And more importantly, how the heck do I respond??

I just quietly delete the comment if it’s none of their business. If they repost, then I delete it again and just fb message them that I’d prefer not to talk about money/private matters/etc on my wall.
If she’s close enough to ask you that, she should be someone you see often in person or chat on the phone, IMO.

I’m not even surpised anymore by the ridiculous stuff that goes on on facebook! some people have no boundaries gah!
I’d probably try to joke my way out of it. “All I know is I’m going to be 90 when I pay off the mortgage!” or something lame like that haha
btw congratulations 🙂

@indibee: Yeah, she definitely isn’t that close to me! We were best friends in elementary school and still have some mutual friends, but I don’t even have her phone number and rarely see her in person. I think I’ll follow your advice and delete the comment.
@Mrs.Lonestar: I would, but then Mother-In-Law would comment and go on and on about finances as she tends to do. Gah, I hate how complicated this stuff can be. And thank you, I’m very excited!
