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.


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?
