Question  Posted: 2:15 PM, July 14th (Monday), 2014View ProfileEdit MessagePrivate MessageHomepage

My Irish cousin just messaged me on FB and included my semi-estranged sister in the conversation.

I'm not FB friends with my bipolar sister (we see each other a couple of times a year). In the past she ragged on me endlessly about being too egotistical and "all about you", so I see no reason to do a friend request since social media is essentially "all about you" anyway.

So I gather my sis has issued one of those "I'm leaving FB" edicts which I find to be quite tiresome.

I mean if you don't want to be on it, just close your account, private message the folks you want to stay in touch with in the future, and be done with it without all the drama of an exit announcement.

My cousin is now imploring her to stay. Why she included me in the conversation I have no idea. I've sent her PMs in the past and gotten no response.

I have no intention of getting involved in this one.

It's so stupid...

Why: Because they are sooo special that they know they will be deeeeply missed and that their absence will be immediately noticed.

And because they are teenagers at heart.


Sit. Feast on your life.

It's like people who flounce off message boards--just drama llamas hoping people will fall over themselves to convince them to stay.

Blah.

I stay away from the drama llamas also. I just can't deal with that crap anymore, when there are actually REAL problems that people have, and REAL issues in society and this world....I just can't abide people that create drama for their own egotistical empty souls. They are too much work for me!

FF,

I just popped in here to let you know... because I know you would want to know..

It saddens me because if I stayed I know I could say something deeply profound and helpful. But. I just have to take care of ME, ya know?

So even though I haven't really contributed to this thread in any way at all, I will be leaving this thread after this post which I will drag out for as long as possible..... (by using lots of these dot thingys.)

NO! Don't try to change my mind or beg me to stay!!!!! (Long pause here so you can do just that if you are inclined...... and more dot thingys......)

So there. I am leaving now! Really really leaving... right. now.

Pleeeeease.....

If you can read this, you are all still on my friends list.

ETA: ^^^ Those type of announcements drive me just as bonkers as the exit announcements.

Ah, now we have the "99 Days" experiment, where people announce they're going off FB by posting a logo as their profile pic.

Now that's what I call a vanity project. Why not just stay off and not make such a big deal out of it?

Sheesh...
