Facebook rant part 1 – Pointless posts, ambiguous posts, and work complaints
We all do it, but some just do it way more than others. The lonely little bachelor, the cat loving eccentric, and the ‘look-at-me’ teenager.
“Just had some gravy” and “The moon is quite high today” or “Making tea” etc etc. And what amazes me is the amount of ‘likes’ and comments that are generated from then pointless fucking drivel. I post something about my endeavours as a writer and although I get some likes from some much valued followers, there are a much higher proportion of likes going on comments regarding someone getting drunk again. That drunk probably going on to beat their partner to a bloody pulp, off their tits on ‘likes’ and comments such as “Nice one” and “Me too!”
I am not saying don’t do it, but we don’t need a fucking monologue of your god damn life. Also… twitter… twitter is for that shit (and not cutting and pasting philosophers cheeky thought-provoking shit like “if a bear is blown to pieces by its own inability to release gas build up from digestion will it actually have existed”) Just slow down tiger, one pointless comment per day.
Another pointless sort of fucking update is the ambiguous one. The “someone made me angry once” and “A male or female I know is going to either get a smack or a hug from me or someone else one day or night”
Complaints about work are different. They
HAVE to be kind of ambiguous because of you adding fucking millions of people as friends, including managers and members of the HR department etc. You idiot! I suppose you also do have the issue where you are NOT being Facebook friends with managers and HR departments but are ratted out by some snivel-nosed little sad twat that decides to report you to make themselves feel good. They thrive off your sadness. You can thank Facebook for your now futile attempts at trying to get a new job. In this situation, my advice, just be friends with actual friends! People that care about you! Then make your profile as god damn private as you can! Or, failing that, do what I have done and set up a private group where you can complain on a regular basis AND include the name of the bastard that is fucking you off!
