Oh I hate when people post all kids if religious crap on FB, had to unfollow some people cause I would open my fb and have Jesus this and praise The Lord that all over my newsfeed. It would make me roll my eyes so hard I didnt want to risk snaping my optic nerve or answering comenting sarcastically on ttose posts and have that end badly…. so the safest choice was to unfollow. Sigh.

Shoot4theMoon:  hahahaha oh my gosh! Nah, I just let it go. I do think it’s super inappropriate though! 

 

I just couldn’t embarrass my poor dog like that. Seriously, these kids look petrified in all their straining, pottying glory. I feel bad for when they get older and their parents then reshare these pics via Timehop though 😳😂

The people who keep peddling their multi level marketing “businesses” and try to get my to buy their shit. I have you on facebook because we are friends/acquaintances, not because I want to be a sales prospect. And these are the people who repost the same thing 5x a day or go on and on about how much I need “product XYZ” in my life. Just get a real job and staahhhpppp.

Hodgy527:  ..it’s even worse when your husband’s 14 year old cousins are the ones posting them. Talk about awkward! Don’t get me started on my old lady/maternal instincts kicking in right away lol

I guess something similar happened “to” me (again, as others have said, it’s their pinterest and the unfollow button is there for a reason) was with a longtime friend and pinterest.

She posts usual things with boards like Home, make up, etc etc normal stuff. Then one day, I see a post of a sexual nature – but the artistic kind, if that makes sense. BDSM stuff. I wasn’t offended, I just wasn’t ready for it lol. The name of the board was Eroticism…

It sure taught me to never open pinterest at work again lol.

I got a new one.

People who EXPECT others hand them over stuff. I saw last night, on a for sale site not a friend of mine, but they said “I have two kids and I’m a single mom. I have no money, but I need a car. I am hoping someone will just donate one. It must be running with heat, A/C and power locks due to my kids.”

What the what.

mrsfiddlesticks:  That’s ridiculous, but not surprising. I don’t go on facebook or pinterest much at all  (A friend signed me up for one, my daughter signed me up for the other) but it did drive me crazy when a particular person would post about every single thing she was doing. Does anyone need to know you’re at the grocery store? Or the war you’re waging on your daughter’s cheerleading team and school? Does anyone care? She gave off a seriously deranged vibe. 

My pinterest account tends to show me a lot of dogs lol.

This guy that DH used to work with is driving me up a wall. He messaged me out of the blue asking “If I made a gofundme page will you donate?” Um, what is the page going to be for? “One of my dogs is blind as a bat.”

o_________O

This is the guy I tried to give advice on how to find a good breeder. My reply was, “Why don’t you talk to the breeder and see if there is a health contract?” He said “Not going to do that. Would really appreciate if you just give $20-$50.”

o________O

I asked what the surgery is for. They don’t know if they can cure the dog’s blindness, but it’s $5,000 to try. Next I went and looked around on his wall. First post? “Just dropped $1500 on my Mustang and it felt so good. Shoulda done this a long time ago.” Next post? He’s tagged by his wife in a picture of new living room furniture “Thanks to my hubs we got this gorgeous leather living room set and the old is going in the basement.” Next post? Re-doing their basement. Next post? Resodding thier backyard.

o__________O

Blocked.

RedHeadKel: “narcissistic female body builders”

Not all of the people posting fitness pics are narcissistic. I’m not as active on Instagram as I used to be since my first account got hacked but once upon a time I had quite a few followers and would constantly post bikini/sportsbra/gym shots. I wouldn’t go as far as posting G-String shots (I just don’t think there is any point) and NEVER show my face however the reason for all of my posts was two-fold: 1. Accountability. It made me stick to a healthier lifestyle because I felt like my “followers” expected a certain level of commitment and I was embarrassed to post pictures of myself if I felt I wasn’t looking my best. Some may see that as unhealthy however I saw it as motivation to stick to my goals and it worked. 2. I made money off my account. All of those pics you may feel are narcissistic actually helped pay a few bills. What you need to understand is that many of the pages you’re referring to belong to people who are running a business. Their body is their brand. Their results are their product. Their posts help them live a semi-comfortable life while still being able to eat. My fitness account was always set on public however I also have a personal account that is set to private and I only accept follow requests from people I know “in real life” and whom I don’t mind sharing personal things with. Why? Because I am quite private and as I said earlier I always crop my head out of my public posts. I can assure you I am not at all narcissistic and I’m actually still not 100% happy with my fitness level. There is always room to improve and I will continue to post pics now and then if it helps me achieve my goals and remain healthy (I suffer from a blood disease so me not slacking is actually vital to my wellbeing). Please don’t be so quick to judge. You may see it as narcissistic, but I see it as a way of improving my quality of life. I doubt those body builders would judge you on your job, please dont judge them on theirs. Because at the end of the day, chances are, they really are just doing their job. I’m not having a go at you, I’m just trying to give you another perspective.
