Ten days til Fi and I get married and I’m calm, happy, and THRILLED!!! So today I post a Facebook status that says “Gettin married in ten days. That’s cool I guess ;-)”
Of course this gets many “likes” and happy excited comments, and then some cynical @$$hat feels the need to post “or a stupid expensive mistake, one of the two.”
Naturally, I flashed with rage but responded with a calm “If you have a negative opinion of marriage, please keep it to yourself, thanks. I am happy and excited, as most soon-to-be-marrieds are!”
If he says anything else, I’m deleting the comments and unfriending him. Might delete the comments anyway, just to keep dramaz off my status. And I’ll definitely unfriend him sneakily in the next ten days since someone with that opinion does NOT need to have access to any wedding pictures that end up on Facebok … but why in the flying eff does anyone feel the need to say something so NEGATIVE about something like a wedding that I am clearly excited about???? Cripes, I’m still shaking I’m so mad!!!!

@Sunfire: This. I feel like I liked people so much more before FB.

I am pretty sure it was meant as a joke.

Douche. Let it roll off…he’s either bitter or has a lousy sense of comic timing. Not worth letting it disturb your pre-wedding glow!!

That would make me really mad too!!! I would just delete the comment and possibly delete this “friend” from facebook as well. That’s the best way to avoid further drama.

Guys are dumb and they say stupid, insensitive things that are meant to be funny. It’s so trivial, try not to be upset about it. Just remember…they aren’t taking themselves seriously when they say shit like that, so you shouldn’t either! Calm down, have a cocktail and focus on the fact that you are GETTING MARRIED IN TEN DAYS! WOOHOO!

FB sucks, that’s why. I’ve had that happen (but it was a status of how happy I was to finally be engaged to FI) and I just looked at it, shocked, and then deleted him from my friends list. People really have nothing better to do than make others feel like poo for being happy. Eh. Just shrug it off and be HAPPY!!! :))))
And congrats on your upcoming marriage! 😀

Because somebody is miserable and likes to burst other people’s bubbles… sad and true.

just delete the comments and block him from your facebook wall.

Reason number 4357849396937458735 why I dislike facebook and don’t post statuses.
@peachacid: I agree.
Could it have just been a ill timed joke? Or maybe he was trying to get a rise out of you which is EXACTLY what he got.

Some people really have no filter

He’s the kind of person where every time I see that he has commented, I cringe while waiting for it to load. It’s either mean-spirited or totally inappropriate about 85% of the time. I guess I should have unfriended him a long time ago!!!

I would let it go. He probably meant it to be funny, even though you don’t think it is.
The day before a co-worker left for his wedding, my boss (whos been married 44 years) *jokingly* offered him the money for a plane ticket to go anywhere he wanted, just don’t get married. He laughed, they do the same thing to me now. It’s their sense of humor, I’m the youngest, they’ve all been married longer than I’ve been alive.
No need to get bent out of shape about it.

@Sunfire: That’s what Darling Husband says all the time and the reason I can’t get him to anything on it. As a matter of fact, he asked me how to set up his “restricted” list so he didn’t need to see stupid status updates from some of his “friends”.
