A FB friend of mine has just posted a sad face as their status.

AIBU to just ask them why they needed to do that instead of just saying what's wrong?

She's already had 4 "What's up, hun?" replies.

the sad faces are almost as annoying as the 'feeling blessed' posts. Almost, but not quite.

it could be worse.

you could be informed by a friend that something extraordinary happened to another friend that can only be communicated face to face.
so you change your plans, arrange childcare and travel to your friends house half-excited, half-worried making up the most crazy&wild scenarios you can think of - only to be told that this Earth-shatteringly amazing piece of information is no other than the fact that Pippa Middleton made an apple pie.. confused angry

true story. (didn't happen to me, it was a distant friend)

12 "What's up hun, here for you and hugs" type comments.

But still no reply. It could be so many things. Political, football or relationship related.

Ohhh apple pie! I wonder who was going to enjoy it , and how!

"Would totes be there 4 u hunni! If I had a singular fucking clue what was wrong. On 2nd thoughts. .."

I have a couple of offenders on my Facebook who do the 'I'm blessed' or 'I'll inbox you' things. Drives me reete mad it does.

As does the one, who I've now deleted, who posted a picture of her husband in the same corner as she takes photos of her kids in their uniform/every frikkin day within the label 'aww so proud of my gorgeous husband ready for a night out' WTF!!

I usually hide people who do that. I can't be bothered to give into their neediness.

SarahAndFuck Sat 14-Sep-13 09:12:01

Is she Pandora from Adrian Mole?

I think she once had a crush on Tony Benn.

Looks like a political friend of hers died. It's sad but why can't people just say it rather than just posting a sad face.

You should have gone with the haemorrhoids line. Would have at least cheered up everyone else reading her status! Not too late..

ShellyBoobs Sat 14-Sep-13 10:58:48

I think it might be because Tony Benn is in hospital. She's very left wing.

Fucking hell.

That alone is reason enough to delete her (or whatever it is you do with people you don't want to know on facebollocks).

soured that just made me spit tea everywhere!!! So proud of her husband dressed up for a night out???!

Oh I do love facebook threads.

Oh I am one of these people.. I'll get my coat.. though I have "lists" so when i post a sad face after I've had a horrible therapy session, I custom it so just close family and friends see, so i get virtual hugs which help.. do I still need to get my coat?

Post 'Aww, what's up Visigoth?' Give her little brain something to work out, take her mind off all her troubles grin
