    Not sorry for this woman one bit.

    I used to have a Facebook in high school, but it got deleted because it was inactive for so long. I started another one in college, but deleted it myself. I just don't care about anything people post, and don't care about what I have going on enough to post it. It's just broadcasting stupid shit that you wouldn't remember to tell people weeks later ("went to the mall!" "ate a taco!" "took a huge shit!").
    My friends joke that I suck with cellular communication, and honestly sometimes I look at texts then put off responding and later just forget until they send another one. I don't like the expectation/pressure to immediately respond. It's just like, too much pressure. Maybe I'm just asocial but I like talking to people when I see them or only texting to make plans. It's like faux-socializing to just text or message, I might be having a fun convo but I'm alone while communicating. It's weird being in a class in my college and everybody is just on their phone. While I love pulling out my phone to ignore someone I don't want to talk to, it's weird being in a room with 30 people who are ignoring each other and just staring at a little screen.

    I do have an empty and fake Facebook account for online stalking, because that is the 1 thing I adore about social media---so fucking easy to stalk. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook... so many wonderful ways to stalk.

    You wouldn't happen to have any English relatives would you? Because that is sounding oh so familiar to me... By the way, you missed out the complaints about being sick, sick, SICK (but apparently still well enough to beat several other people on Songpop).

    What exactly does the accountant suggest everyone does with all their pets? Turn them loose to fend for themselves so they don't get proper food, clean water and veterinary treatment for illnesses and so die prolonged, painful deaths? What about when these abandoned cats and dogs and bunnies and guinea pigs and everything else become such a problem that euthanasia squads have to go out every day and start shooting them to control the populations? Is he going to go along and help clean up the bodies and the mess while jauntily humming a few verses of "Born Free"? Fucking fucktard.

    Oh I don't know. He's a mad petard and doesn't think these things through. He's looking down the barrel at 50 but thinks and behaves like a 20yr old. I think it might have something to do with his ditsy dreadlocked young blonde dippy dolphin hugger surfie girlfriend. And like all good petards he now posts really gruesome animal cruelty pics/vids on FB with semi hysterical commentary and a holier than thou Attitude. It's tax time here soon so he's going to be busy but if there is any hint of him dropping the accounting ball then I will be dropping him.

    I dumped facebook a while back, but it was interesting to witness quite a few people I used to consider normal expose themselves as attention whores and narcissists.

    VAGUEBOOKING. Die.

    I had a friend who kept doing that. She always acted completely normal in person. On FB, she was a toxic drama queen who was always posting dramatic threats, angry complaints, cryptic predictions of disaster, etc. I finally cornered her and asked her "which you is the real one? because I don't want to know the person posting as you on Facebook. Do you realize that this is how people you love are starting to think of you??" She made some excuses and cried a little when it was demonstrated how all her friends had gradually begun to completely ignore her posts.

    She did stop the shitstirring, though. Facebook can bring out really unpleasant behaviors in people.
