Facebook Pet Peeves

I've realized that Facebook makes me dislike people more than it makes me feel closer to them. I hate knowing my friends politics. I feel sad for their RIP status postings, but don't really understand proper Facebook protocol when it comes to responding and choose to ignore. Here are five pet peeves that really get me going:

1) Photos imitating "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil." These photos are everywhere.

2) "8 days til Cabo!" Vacation count downs. Nope, don't care.

3) "Just ran 20 miles! 6.2 to go!" Marathon training updates. You spent 3 hours of your day running and I am not jealous. While you were training in 35 degree weather, I watched 6 Seinfeld reruns and ate frozen pizza. It was fabulous.

4) "Some people are SUCH assholes." Clearly pointed at someone who will see it on Facebook. Ultimately passive aggressive, and not in the fun way. I knew a roommate once who would push long hairs left in the shower drain toward the other roommate's hair products. Now that was fun passive aggression.

5) "Exhausted." Who isn't?
