This girl I know decided the other day that she wanted to buy a cat for her 18 month old daughter (!). The next day, she had a cat. She has spent every day since getting it complaining about it – ‘ew the cat keeps rubbing up against my leg. Why is it doing this? It’s driving me crazy. Yuck’. Really? What the heck did you expect? It’s a CAT! It’s what they do! One of her friends asked why she even got a cat in the first place, and her response was ‘because I can’. That’s a great reason…makes me wonder how easy it must be to walk into a shelter and say ‘give me a cat. I don’t know why, and I don’t know anything about them, but just hand it over’.
What’s bugged you lately?

A pregnant FB friend complains constantly about her unborn child. If she (the baby) is kicking, then she’s too active and keeping her up. If she doesn’t move, she’s “lazy”. Yep, she called her unborn child lazy. Nice

If anything annoys me I hide it instantly. I’ve got quite a few people hidden and I’m not sorry about it.

Not much, I hide annoying people, right now it’s just kind of boring… occasionally I’ll be annoyed by something ignorant but my feed is mostly just people sharing george takei posts and other amusing things… it’s slowly looking more and more like my tumblr dash…

@Deejayelle: The ultimate worst: A friend’s mom posted about how things have taken a bad turn and she needs all the prayers we can send her way….
82 comments later, and this woman still has not said what is going on, but she’s actively responding with things like:
… I can’t say yet, but will share as soon as I can.
… My health is good, I will let you know that.
… Trying to be positive about this.
… I cant sleep at all.
UMMMM either share your stuff on facebook, or don’t share your stuff on facebook, but don’t ANNOUNCE to the world that you’re going through some shit and then refuse to let on what the subject matter even is. Cry for attention, but the attention received is all so shallow, because everyone’s essentially posting the “praying for you, whatever’s going on” hoping that maybe she’ll be gracious enough to share!
Same person who CONSTANTLY posts the “Let’s see who really is my friend/ loves me… Repost this status and tag me” type crap.

@Deejayelle: There’s this one guy on my feed who, when he isn’t posting very lowbrow, crude cartoons, pity trolls. Its really awkward and awful. For example, a few months ago he posts about how he failed some test for some certification and how this was just one more crushed dream. Really, dude? You can retake the f-ing test. His self-pity and comfort me bait are icky.
Oh, he also reposted an Onion like article that he appeared to believe was legit – about how Obama was trying to outlaw twerking.

@Deejayelle: I have only one or two friends anymore that ever even annoy me and one of them is not in my newsfeed because his posts bothered me so much, but I do have this friend who miraculously graduated high school, how I have no clue. Whenever she writes a post, the grammar nazi in me takes over and I have to refrain myself from posting something snarky or sarcastic about it.
I mean, come on, is it REALLY that hard to know when to use “know” vs “now”. She gets that wrong EVERY SINGLE TIME. It makes my brain hurt.

I’m really SICK of seeing videos playing on their own! The other day someone posted a video & commented that the girl in the video needed her #!$ beat (so I KNEW it was going to be bad) but before I could scroll past it, I got the privilege of seeing a girl pick up kittens out of a bucket & football-toss them into a river!!!!!! OMG I wanted to SCREAM!!! WHY?! Facebook is becoming so stupid I’ve considered closing it a billion times, but I have a lot of pictures on there, plus friends I wouldn’t get to talk to otherwise.
It really bothers me though. It’s bad enough that people POST those videos & now they’re playing on their own! It’s traumatic!

@okqueenbee: omg poor kittens I think I saw the link to the video but surpass it. Didn’t even want to imagine what that bitch did to those poor animals.

You’re fortunate not to have seen it.
Some people shouldn’t be allowed to breathe. It’s a waste of air.
