My 3 cousins were on Facebook, and are annoying as hell. (They are sisters) I hate when people abuse/misuse social media.
-The middle one declared she was deleting her FB page after her wedding.
“Why?” I asked.
“Because” she replied.
I asked her if her husband was banning her from it or something, she denied it.
I said “But I live 2000 miles away from you, it’s a good way for us to keep in touch.”
She said, “You can call me on the phone if you wanna keep in touch.”
Oh… ok. I guess I could also send you a TELEGRAM BECAUSE IT’S APPARENTLY THE EARLY 1900s. Anyway, it’s been 3 years since and I haven’t talked to her once. She blames me, obviously. “You could text me” Um, you could be texting me, too.
-The oldest one has been divorced for 3 years, and has been dating this guy named “Joe” for…well, the past 3 years (right after she got divorced).
They break up literally every month. I AM NOT EXAGGERATING. EVERY.SINGLE.MONTH.
This is messed up on multiple levels because she has a daughter, but that’s another story.
She keeps deactivating and reactivating her account, EVERY. TWO. WEEKS. Whenever they get into a fight, she posts pictures and phrases like “My daughter comes first,” and “my family comes first,” and “some people need to grow up.”(ORLY??)
So I got a message from her today that said “I’m deactivating my profile, FOR NOW, lol.”
And then she gave me her email address and said something along the lines of that she changes THAT frequently too. WHAT? Who changes their email address frequently??
-The last sister was closest to me, we were like best friends.
She started dating a guy who is going through a sex change.
The day she deactivated her FB, she said it was because she “spent too much time on it.”
But that was also the day that her boyfriend changed his sex from “male” to “female” and changed his first name on his FB profile. I’m guessing the real reason is because she didn’t want to make that public, even though she swears up and down she “doesn’t give a sh*t about labels.” *rolls eyes*
Why do people misuse social media? I work in web design/social media, and when used correctly, it’s a great place to stay in touch with family and friends who live far away, to connect with people with similar interests, and to discover new things (new websites, different organizations, etc)
My cousins are fucking crazy. They’re all acting like 16 year old little girls. It’s so frustrating. I don’t even think people acted like this on MySpace.
