Who Are the Buzzkills on Facebook?
There have been plenty of posts about the “worst” people on Facebook.. the over-sharer, the vague-booker, the stalker… we’ve all seen them – we all know them. Some of us are them. But I have a few new ones to add to the mix and some of these offenders will make you wish for the baby overdose posters.
No joke.. there people put the “gaper” in a Gaper’s Delay. They’re the ones who post pictures of accidents and other horrible things that happen. If we come upon an accident or other traumatic events, I tell my kids to not stare out of respect and you’re not only staring but taking a picture and posting it with some lame-ass message asking for prayers. WHAT is that about?
Speaking of prayers.. the next one that rubs me wrong is…
These are the people who want us to pray for every. fricking. thing. “Please pray that Walgreens has cough syrup so that Susie AND I can sleep thru the night.” Look, I don’t pray that often and when I do I guarantee it won’t be for some stupid reason like whether Walgreens shelves are stocked with drugs. You’re not just wasting my time, you’re wasting God’s time. Stop it.
Kumbaya Mah Lord..
This person relates to and shares EVERY inspirational quote known to man. And all at the same time so your feed is nothing but an endless stream of images and quotes. I love a good inspirational post myself, but how pathetic is your life that every single one moves you enough to post it? Try some Godfather or Tarantino quotes every now and again would you??
But First, Let Me Take a Selfie
The people who only post selfies. There are some that I swear I wonder if they’re in a 30 day contest to see who can post the most. There’s one of you in the car and then look! there’s one of you at the Gap! Oh but wait! There’s one of you on vacation with your toes in the water and your ass in the sand. (okay.. I’ve done that one… )
The Sales Pitcher
If you’re selling stuff on Facebook – stop. Well, you don’t have to stop entirely, but if you’re posting your wares more than once a week then it’s too much. We get it; you’re selling the greatest stuff since Tupperware, but I promise you no one wants to buy any more cooking tools, bags, makeup or shrink-wrap for our thighs on Facebook. I know I speak for many when I say that if I want to buy something second hand then I will visit LeoList or somewhere like that, not Facebook. You’d sell a lot more of your stuff if you posted it in a classified ad on one of those sites.
Yikes.. come to think of it, I’ve seen these people too much. Might be time to lighten my load.. I know there are more offensive “sharers” out there but those are my top 5.
Which ones rub you the wrong way?
