1 Step - Turn the Chat OFF in Facebook

Ok, I read about the 50 Funny Facebook Status Ideas. And honestly, I did enjoy just about each one of them. I liked the one especially where Dave says that his wife tells him that he is too immature and if he does not grow up, it is going to erect a barrier between them; erect! HAHAHA!

Go on and read all 50 of them. They are funnier than you can imagine. And the best thing is that each one of pretty useful in daily life.

My post here has to deal with people like me who hate the GODDAMN chat function of the Facebook. All I am trying to do is log on and check my messages real quick, and there they are, about 10 of my loser buddies (that is like 5% of my total Facebook friends), furloughed from their airline pilot jobs, and they all just want to chat with me, and mama taught me not to ignore as that is rude. So, I am on the verge of either getting fired from my job, or get divorced because of this.

Well guys, so I had to find the solution to this. As we know, there is no Turn Off chat function in facebook, and there is no invisible sign on either, and no we can't ignore the friends, and definitely, we don't want to get fired or divorced (with a few exceptions).

Well, this is what you do - instead of going to the normal Facebook.com site; simply go to: http://lite.facebook.com and that is all. No chat anymore. Do your thing, and take your sweet a** time. But, definitely, no more chat!

And wait a minute here: If you want to join hands with me; and get the Facebook folks to do something about this chat function, join the poll below. If there is enough votes, I am sure we can get a better option that using Facebook lite.
