Asking me to play your games
I have a life. I have no urge whatsoever to sit and play Animal Farm. I thought people would grow tired of inviting me to play (like when you send out plenty of emails in the beginning of your email life but then get tired of it) but no, I am receiving just as many game requests as I did in 2009, when I joined Facebook. AND I HAVE NEVER ACCEPTED ONCE.
Tagging me in dumb shit
Tagging me in posts about war-ridden countries, cancer patients or “Share if you love your mother and don’t want her to die”* things will 1) not solve middle Eastern conflict, 2)cure cancer and 3) keep my mother alive.
*Inspired by a true story
Adding people (me) to open groups
This is also inspired by a true story.
1) Who else thinks open groups are rude? Here, I don’t care if you want to join my group; I am forcing you to view (shit) Harry Potter fan fiction. NO I DO NOT WANT TO SEE SEVERUS SNAPE AND HERMOINE GRANGER KISSING FFS.
2) Leaving a group is so much work you need to be truly inspired (I was VERY inspired). But still – don’t add me to things I am not interested in and not even have the courtesy to ask me if I am keen to join.
3) DO NOT EVER CREATE SUCH SHIT FAN FICTION
The six thousand nearly-exact shots of you… in your bedroom
We all know you love your new haircut, but really, the billion pics of your duck face aren’t nearly as endearing as you might begin to think.
Jumping on the bandwagon
If I see one more post about Oscar Pistorius, or loadshedding, or the rain in South-Africa, I will honestly start crying. It is NOT new news. How many versions of “the power is out at my home” do I possibly need to see to still not care?
What are the most annoying things people do on your Facebook?
I know what load shedding is now thanks to you!
*share this is you don’t want to be mauled to death by killer sea lions*
whoop! (for the new knowledge)
The reason WHY I still have Facebook eludes me. Sigh
Me too. I wish I hadn’t joined
#1 Asking me to play games is one, so when I get a request I immediately block the game. Now I’m free from invites!
#2 Getting fb message spam or tags about ‘liking’ a picture so that they can win prizes. I understand if we are friends, but most of the time they are people I do not even talk to.
Oh I am going to do that. Thanks! Didn’t even know I can block games. Whoop! 🙂
People really are the worst on Facebook hey. Especially if it is someone you once met ages ago who is blocking your feed with nonsense!
Friend this is an excellent post. Facebook is a freaking nuisance.
Thanks my friend! You saw what I went through with that open group
Jeeeeesh it was scary. Even Rix was like wtf?!
