I think this is my very favourite..evar...
I have this thing about facebook. It's bugging the crap outta me. In order not to sound like a complaining old fart I should just say most of the people on my facebook are much younger than me, mostly nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and friends of friends...etc. Lot's of youngins and some blogger friends. It's a match made in hell.
Most of my friends..my age (including youse guys) manage to say, what you what to say in a sentence or two. It is perfectly clear. eg. "I went to the mall today again and had sex with one of the security guards." Remember the cute guy I was talking about?" Then later we had lunch. Hey, I can understand that. I remember the guy you talked about, and I now know you had sex with him. Done.
But, that is not how it works out in my face book. Kids! They talk in "text." They assume you know ..what the freaking hell they are talking about.
I will give you a few examples: I am changing the names.
Liza: 30 more days!
Huhhh... thirty more days to what? How do you comment on shit like that?
Joan: Until you next period?
Liza: No, until Christmas you idiot.
Well, hells bells, why didn't I think of that! Like help me out here. What is this shit, a big freaking guessing game.
Bear: 3 more days!
Joan: Is your insurance going to expire? Three days..what in the hell are you talking about? She left me guessing even though I asked. I later found out she went to Cancun. This is my niece. ahem.
And those that just say..I just ate an apple. What!!
Joan: check you stool in the morning to make sure it digested properly... I didn't really need to know that...
Or: I just got a haircut.
Joan: Okay, did you like it?
OY..for God's sake finish the sentence....Please...take it to the next level.
My next Facebook entry will be:
I just took a dump.
I will not reveal the outcome.
Because no one gives a shit!
