You Don’t Annoy Me

You Don’t Annoy Me

I prefer a pleasant vice to an annoying virtue. ~Moliere


You don’t annoy me on Facebook.

You don’t annoy me on Twitter.

You don’t annoy me on a train or in the rain…

Well, maybe, on a train…

Recently, I have come across countless blog posts complaining about “annoying status” updates. I read one where the writer went on and on…listing the “types of annoying status” and bullet pointing each one; letting us know what qualified a status for each category. I seriously had to force myself to read it because really…it was annoying (sorry, sometimes hypocrisy cannot be avoided). And then, I got to the comments and I was floored. There were so many hateful, venomous comments concurring with the author and throwing in more categories!

I think there are quite a few insecure peoples here in the World Wide Web who have nothing better to do then spout their jealousies and unhappiness in the disguise of “being annoyed”.

I don’t care if you post mushy, lovey-dovey pictures, quotes or notes to your significant other. It’s not your fault if someone else is single or unhappy and you should not have to censor yourself.

If you don’t like it…scroll on…

I don’t care if you post you post about your diet or exercise. Twenty million times a day. My issues are not your issues and I celebrate your efforts! However, I’m only running if there are cupcakes at the finish line…

If you don’t like it…scroll on…

If you want to talk about you kids poop, ask about weird rashes or just bitch because, let’s face it, we get annoyed with our kids? Have at it! I’ve been there, probably yesterday and I understand. And I love seeing everyone’s sonogram pictures, even though I am soooo not a baby person.

If you don’t like it…scroll on…

Oh and if you are guilty of posting pictures of your cat. Every. Single. Day. Please add me so I feel less alone…

If you don’t like it…scroll on…

I use Facebook to connect with my friends and family. I feel like every status update is a peek into their heads and lives. Why would I want them to censor who they are and what they do from me? The great thing about social media is your ability to control what you see. If you are that annoyed by someone delete them. Or…scroll on…But once you do, don’t start complaining about how boring YOUR Facebook experience becomes.

I’m aware that I can be annoying. ~ Sandra Bullock

Until next time, scribe happy and annoy people with a smile!!!

Until next time, scribe happy…

    Are you trying to say that my personal opinion on things that in no way affect me *ISN’T* justifiable reason to make other people stop doing things?! PSHHH! Well, your blog is irritating. Nyah!

    I think the internet brings out the bad in a lot of people – because they aren’t face to face with the person they’re mocking, they behave in ways they wouldn’t behave while with people. They might not tell a woman to her face that ‘that dress makes you look like a slut/fat/etc’, but they see the woman’s photo online and suddenly feel the need to detail exactly why that woman is stupid/slutty/fat/etc.
