Xnay the Fangage

I don’t know how many of you are also Facebook users but there’s a feature where another “friend” can “tag” you in a picture they’ve uploaded.

Most times, pictures are decent and moments captured are treasured.  Sometimes I even look like myself.  Other times, I’m caught open-mouthed, mid-sentence, looking rabid and ridiculous.

Then I saw this and thought, well, there it is.

oh how true it is

oh how true it is

Many of us have experienced passive-aggressive people and sometimes it can take a while to recognize it.  So, after one “friend” continued to upload unflattering pictures of me, I came to realize that she was not my friend.

And I may have giggled through my fangs when I clicked on the “unfriend” button.

“Stop inviting people who don’t celebrate you to your party! It’s YOUR life – you have the right to be exclusive.”
Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

How about you?  Have you ever “unfriended” someone?  Do tell!

  1. I have! I “unfriended” a girl named Karen, who lived two houses away during grade school. She kept pulling her kitties’ tails, and kept putting my turtle outside where I couldn’t find him.

    As for Facebook, I’ve solved all the problems associated with that particular modern reality. I’ve chosen not to invite it to my party!

  2. Aw….I can’t imagine anyone being that mean to you (she must have been jealous). As for unfriending her, “good riddance to bad rubbish”!!!
    I’ve only unfriended one or two people – mostly for their vulgar language. They may have the right to use it (and post) it, but it’s my computer screen, and I choose not to see that when I log on! (Of course, I’ve also just “hidden” some folks for the same reason.)
    Have a good day, MJ! And I love the kitty photos…!

    • I agree … good riddance.
      The things is, I am perfectly capable of looking like an idiot, but to have someone consistently position me that way was too much to take.
      And I’m not a fan of the gnarly language, either. I’m not perfect, but I try not to speak that way, and I’m not interested in a profane rant. Thanks but no.
      Aren’t those kitties hilarious?

  3. I have so few friends on face book and they are mostly close or family. So far I haven’t needed to unfriend anyone but I changed one friend’s status so I wouldn’t get an email every time she posted (which was often). I did have the pleasure of my grandniece copying a photo I had taken of her for a blog post and she uses it as her gravator. That was a great compliment. I say good riddance to people who delight in having you look odd.

    • I hear you there — I have a few relatives who post a lot of TMI and often, had to hide them. I had a few that I’ve deleted b/c they’re just weird people and say stupid things. No thanks.

      That is a great compliment from your grandniece 🙂

      Cheers! MJ

  4. OMG–isn’t that always how it happens?! What a hoot! I don’t think I have ever unfriended anyone, but, gosh, have I been tempted! I chose either forgiveness (or revenge?) instead. No, seriously, never did the latter–but was tempted, again.

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • That picture’s hilarious. I won’t post a photo of anyone else unless it’s a good one — no double chins, no wide-eyed lunacy, no crazy hair. That’s what friends do. Sometimes I don’t get it back … ~sigh.

      Cheers! MJ

  5. So true, so very true!

    I have not unfriended anyone, but I have un-followed people who constantly post annoying updates. Great way to obliterate cranky, complainy, whiny words from the newsfeed!

    Envy! Plain and simple. You look too good, you do well, you allow yourself to be vulnerable. Whatever the case, that is just too much of a good thing for some people. Delete! Unfriend! Block! Good riddance!!! ;).

  7. I have unfriended a couple of people–one for language (a relative) and one (someone I didn’t know).
