What You Think Of Your Sports Team On Your Facebook Status
You Know It’s Bad When I’d Rather Read About Your Children Instead Of What You Think Of Your Sports Team On Your Facebook Status – Don’t Get Me Started!
When I first joined Facebook I was amused by the things that people would write for their status. I have one friend who is hilarious and she had written, “…has decided not to make her comeback after all.” I laughed out loud when I read it. Hilarious. But soon as I was “friended” by everyone who had hit me, hit on me or wanted to be my friend from high school, the status updates took an ugly turn. Suddenly I was seeing things like, “…I see God when I look in my daughter’s eyes.” Blech! Bring me the sarcastic, the witty, the fun but don’t suddenly sound like something that I could get on a decoupage plaque from a store named, The Mustard Seed (something I still don’t get how it relates to Jesus and not just a spicy brown condiment for corned beef but whatever). Then former co-workers “friended” me and suddenly the status update took yet another ugly turn, sports talk. You know it’s bad when I’d rather read about your children instead of what you think of your sports team on your Facebook status – Don’t Get Me Started!
If I wanted to listen to or read commentary about sports I’d go to the SPCA or ESPN (whatever the hell those initials are). I don’t care that you think your prayers will be answered by writing them as your status for your favorite team or player or whatever the reason it is that you’re writing this on your Facebook page, what you’re not willing to admit and what no one but me will tell you is that by doing this you’re showing just how boring you are! That’s right, when all you can think of to say is, “Geez my Eagles are really showing their stuff today.” What you’re really saying is, “I have no life and I’m hoping by writing about sports people will think I’m cool and want to be my friend.” Well, high school is over and you’ve just gotten yourself “unfriended” from my Facebook, pal.
I was offended by people who felt the need to put everything they were doing on their status, “Just went to the bank and then it’s home to make cookies for Dylan’s class tomorrow. I don’t know how I’m going to get everything done I need to get done. Just not enough hours in the day” Maybe try not taking the time to write everything you’re doing on Facebook and you just may find the time is there after all, moron. What always gets me is that very soon after you read someone’s status like that it’s invariably followed up with a posting that they just bought two cows and mowed the back forty on Farmville. That’s right, you have no time in the day to do anything but write on Facebook about how you have no time to do anything yet you still have time to tend to your imaginary farm on Facebook. What the fuck, you fuck?
Do I seem angry? You bet. Because with all the status bullshit and now twating on Twitter, people are under the impression that anything they write is interesting enough to read. They’re wrong!! If you want me to read your status updates you’re going to have to do better than seeing God in your child’s eyes or sending a prayer to keep your favorite footballer’s balls in the right place. Which makes me think, maybe for one day I’m going to status myself into a frenzy. Maybe for one day I’ll show people what they should be saying on these status updates. Hmmmm…too many evil thoughts running through my mind at the moment, better go buy a pitchfork from Hellville! You know it’s bad when I’d rather read about your children instead of what you think of your sports team on your Facebook status – Don’t Get Me Started!
