@Silly_love:  I get your annoyance but she sounds like someone to be pitied.  She’s not fooling anyone except maybe herself.

@Silly_love:  ugh!! fb is the devil. One of my friends on there is unemployed and gets a link card (food stamps) and the other day she liked one of those ecards and it said something like “i took my dog to apply for food stamps and they denied him but then I explained that he’s lazy unemployed and blah blah blah…..and then he got approved”  or something along those lines. I read it and was like ummmm your unemployed, and you get food stamps…. kind of awkward that you liked that photo there buddy lol

ETA: it said exactly this “I went to sign my dog up for welfare. they said he’s not eligable. I said he’s lazy, unemployed, and doesn’t know his daddy. He gets his check next week”

@Silly_love:  people’s antics in social media just blow me away.

Pay no attention to her, she clearly has to fabricate such a ‘good’ life to elicit some response. Don’t give her the satisfaction of positive or negative feedback.

Side note, you’re so right. Calling yourself a military wife because your man is in jail is not fact it’s downright rude.

@Silly_love:  yeah, I have zero personal experience to depend on and even I can tell! Pretty sure army wives and jail wives are not experiencing the same trauma at all. That’s not to say it wouldn’t suck te big one f your man went to jail, but it’s still not the same!

@Silly_love:  haha sounds like she would be GREAT in Public Relations…spin spin the truth haha!

Seriously though….I know it’s frustrating but she sounds dillusional. I feel bad for people like this.

If it makes you feel any better-I know a very sad lonely older man who is 1) Lonely by choice and every woman wants to be with him 2) He has “NO IDEA” why men don’t like him 

….and it’s really 1)  He’s a creepy older man who thinks that JUST because a woman talks to him she wants to be with him (not kidding we women who work with this man talk about it all the time)  and 2)  He’s afraid of other men and a lot of it has to do with him only wanting to hang out with women who are married or in relationships and trying to hit on them anyway and when he doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer their BF/DH/SO gets involved and it’s a mess.

People just believe what they want and its very annoying.  Sometimes you just have to laugh a little and hold your tounge because you have to be sure they are aware of themselves to an extent and are in denial.

@li612:  agreed.

Unfriend or stop following this person. It sounds like staying connected with her isn’t adding anythign positive to your life. At the same time, I would encourage you to stop taking this so personally. What she posts isn’t impacting you. It’s her life and her choice to say whatever she wants. Block her and move on 🙂

… and people like this are why I don’t have Facebook anymore. I literally see NO purpose in having one. If someone wants to get in touch with me they can call or email. If I want to know what’s going on in someone’s life, I’ll ask them!
