Maybe I’m just grumpy. But maybe, just maybe, I have a valid point with this one. What is it with people inviting you to stupid groups or to play inane games? You regularly see invites for groups called “something, something something, lol, jk, something to contradict previously stated something’. WHO CARES?? I clearly do not want to join a group called “I love horses! Woo! Yay! Lol, jk, I actually hate horses”.
Please, teenyboppers, do not darken my door with your invite to “I want to be a grunge/emo kid. Lol, jk, i can’t think of anything I would rather do less, I’m a raver” I would rather gouge out my own eyeballs with a spoon that take my time to add this, but whats more annoying is i have to waste time actually rejecting your ridiculous efforts, to save myself from the pain of it keep popping up when I log on to see photos of my friends drunken antics. And no, I literally don’t care that you ‘heart’ wispas, kitkats, clangers, or anything remotely insignificant.
The other one is invitations to be a witch / zombie / planet / friends character / kitten eating alien. Again, if you are thinking of inviting me to join this, remember, i am not nice. I won’t add it out of pity for you inviting me, or because i feel embarrassed to say no. No, ignore is my favourite Facebook application.
Likewise, for you budding farmers / growers / vets with your Farmville, fishville, dogville, fleaville, I have a life outside Facebook, so will politely decline your chosen profession in favour of fresh air and conversations with actual people. Ta though, kid!
I ranted this to a colleague the other day, and I have a kindred spirit. Apparently he got shouted at for not attending an event, which he had never heard of. He was met with “well I invited you on Facebook and you didn’t reply” to which he answered, “get a life!!!”
My message is thus: for all you people who live to update their statuses…. there is a whole other world outside. With a sun that isn’t made up of pixels, and friends who aren’t cartoon characters, or 2d. Try it, you may like it!
Id like to thank the gorgeous Jay Vincent for inspiring me on this one, its his dry mutterings that got me ready for a good old rant. On Facebook, incidentally. Fancy that.
