Every single day, sometimes at least twice a day, my aunt updates her status saying things like:
“Thanks for the birthday wishes, I’m feeling unappreciate”
“my kids have a disease called FLOORITIS, things hit the floor and they don’t pick them up”
“I need a sabatical away from my family!”
God, it’s so frustrating. I wish I could say something to her but I know if I do, she’ll get all snappy to me. I just think it’s so disrepectful to constantly say how much she’s annoyed with her two boys and her husband on facebook. Especially when it’s almost every status.

I totally agree with you! It’s so frustrating to read things like that all the time, especially coming from the same person.
In fact, if I’m friends with someone on fb and their status updates are always negative, I end up deleting them. 🙂

You could block her status updates on facebook. I totally would.

I would block her too. I had to remove a cousin because she would NOT stop complaining about her relationship woes (but wouldn’t do anything to fix them). My husband has an aunt that changes her relationship status to “it’s complicated” whenever she has a disagreement with her husband. It’s so absurd.

I wouldn’t say anything. I’d hide her status updates. I’m always hiding annoying people on FB! She’s probably just using it as a forum to vent. Everyone needs to vent but she’s just doing it to the public, which is in poor taste but she’s entitled to do it.

@jennifer_espos: And I understand that. But when she has all of her family and friends on there it’s just like, you know everyone can see that. If you are having an argument with your husband we don’t all want to hear about it.

I would just block her status and don’t ever reply to them. People do things like that for attention. I’ve been blocking a lot of people lately.

I agree that sound super annoying. But I would tell her anything. Block her updates if you can. Let her vent to those who’s interested,

I deleted a girl on FB bc of this drama. She was always putting way too much out there and always being so negative and myself and everyone could tell at times she was merely doing it for attention. I’m sorry but I don’t think FB land needs to know your ex and one of your many babys daddy is in jail and you feel so sad for him. HMMMM? Just hide it. Just pointless drama.

I abosolutely HATE when people constantly update their FB status…whether it’s good or bad news. I really have no desire to see every single update in their life (which is why I hide them)….However, I have heard my mom make all of those statements in real life…and she was probably justified in doing so. lol But, she would never put those things on a FB status.

Block or delete! I had to block a high school friend going through a divorce because every status was some misspelled, gramatically incorrect (and completely void of puntuation and capitalization) rant about his soon-to-be-ex-wife. It was amusing at first, and then got totally annoying.

I would totally hide her status updates too.

My aunt does that too! I can’t stand it! She always complains about her kids (who she calls “Kid 1” and “Kid 2”), and her kids are her Facebook friends and can see everything she writes. I feel really bad that they have to read her bitch-fests!

It’s times like these that I miss when Facebook was a social networking tool for STUDENTS i.e university and college only!!!!!! :/. But yeah (sorry about that… it’s been building up for awhile..), I would most def. block her updates 🙂
