I wouldn’t assume it was directed at you unless you do use vocabulary incorrectly (and frequently enough for her to notice). Even then, I’d sort of take it as a wake-up call to step up my game!

I probably would be.  I would like to tell you not to be upset, but honestly, I think I would.  LOL.

I think lots of people have issues with misused or misspelled words–both using them and hating them. I wouldn’t necessarily take it to personally, maybe just watch how you speak and make sure to edit any typos or mistakes.

I would assume that she’s a mean/irritable person and ignore her – not worth your time.

I’m not really close to my extended family (aunts and uncles) so if one of them were to put a posting that my have something related to what I do or study, I really wouldn’t think too much of it.  Has this been an issue with her before?  Have you had face-to-face discussions on your or your FIs profession with her?  If yes, okay it might be hinted at you, if not, I wouldn’t think too much of it.

You know what I hate? Mean facebook posts/statuses that make you wonder who they’re directedd at. I would be irritated too. She’s probably not talking about you, but you’re well within your rights to be frustrated :(.

I would have been upset.  Probably, I would have jumped on her status and aired my grievance about “passive-aggressive people who won’t just say what they mean.”

It’s possible she could be “airing a grievance” about a coworker, other friend or who knows.

I would totally ignore that old cranky-pants and have a martini. Wink

First of all, I was an english major and I’m a stickler for good language and writign skills. I hate the text message spelling and correct myself when I speak incorrectly. I usually don’t correct anyone else, except Darling Husband but rarely and only when we’re alone. I wouldn’t assume it’s directed at you. Tons of people speak and write incorrectly, so it’s probably more of a general comment.

I can’t understand why she’d post about grievances right before the holidays though. Seems like kind of a downer.

@mrstilly: And yet you misspelled “writing” and failed to capitalize “English.” 😉 I agree with you, though; it’s probably more of a general comment than a specific attack.
