- Wedding: September 2014
We know a couple getting married sometime next year. SO has known the groom for years, but we have only known the bride to be a short amount of time, and so has he: they got engaged 3 months after meeting. Both have a string of marriages/broken engagements to their name. Just wanted to give a little background.
Bride-to-Be is in her 30’s; young enough to understand how Facebook works, and that everything you post on your status can be viewed by your entire friends list. This will be important soon. She is one of those folks that has mistaken Facebook for their diary, and her hourly posts usually read something like this:
-“woke up an hour ago”
-“had pancakes for breakfast”
-“stomach hurting…hope it feels better soon”
-“so sick of everyone at work. They’re all so stupid.”
-“just ate some soup.”
-“my stomach hurts, need to go to the bathroom.”
-use of any racial slur imaginable followed by “jk, LMAO”
I wish I was kidding with you. But you get the general idea: no filter.
This lack of status foresight has become especially entertaining since she got engaged, and she has been using her Facebook as a sounding board whenever the smallest thing doesnt go her way.
Church you liked wouldn’t marry you because you aren’t a member and you’ve been divorced? Definitely insult the entire denomination and call them hypocrites/referrence molestation cases.
Couldn’t afford your reception venue? Calling out the staff for “discriminating” against you for being white sounds like a solid plan to me.
And everytime I read these, I think “this is going to bite her in the ass, and quickly.”
Finally, it happened: she insulted a vendor she forgot she was Facebook friends with. And it was glorious.
Her: “So today, I’m super mad. We have a _____ doing our wedding as a gift, and she rescheduled with us. It’s really annoying and yeah I get she’s doing it for free and our wedding is a year and a half away, but we just don’t feel important now. If she doesnt stop, I’m going to have to look for a new _____, I guess.”
Enter vendor: “Thanks for the heads up. Guess you forgot we were friends on Facebook. Next time, write a Yelp review. I hope you’re able to find another ______ in your budget.”
