UGGGGGH

This girl I went to college with and friends on FB with doesn’t have kids, but has several “fur babies” and she posts numerous times a day about them, every damn day.

Please stop it already! No one gives a shit about your stupid dogs and what they ate or who they played with today! How about you get a life or something? It’s beyond annoying to have my feed filled with her posts, I’ve tried to unfollow her but there’s some kind of glitch that won’t turn off her posts. I’d rather not un-friend her, but JEEZ! Roll Eyes

She wants very badly to be a mom. Nature hasn’t favored her and her instinct won’t quit, and so I give pretty wide latitude to the women in my life that match this description. Some of them would be every bit as vicious in protecting my child as my wife would be, so I can’t judge it too harshly.

Things like this tend to come from the complete opposite place that malice does, and I tend to have a hard time with people dumping on it. They have so much love to give that the dog or cat they’ve chosen to give love to is wholly incapable of realizing or reflecting it, so they want YOU to know how much love they’re capable of giving, that some of the emotional need they feel might be recognized by someone, which is what we all know they wanted in the first place because the cat doesn’t read Facebook. These people are lonely. Being lonely sucks.


It can be annoying, but do you kick puppies when they yap too much? Same thing, in my book.

What annoys me the most is the cruel irony that women like the OP's friend, who would be incredible moms cannot have kids while LaQuisha and Jantelle shit out kids then ignore them and treat them horribly

I'd rather see that instead of the irrational rants on FB about how wonderful St. Hillary is and how evil President Trump is. I've come close to unfriending the wife of a friend of almost fifty years because of that.

If she would get her facts right we could have a rational discussion on the matter. I have facts to back my opinions and quote them. Hers, I swear she makes them up on the fly. The latest was that Gerrymandering, a hot topic in Michigan was the only reason that President Trump won this state in 2016. Unfortunately for her rant, the redistricting was put in place BEFORE the 2012 elections. And we all know how that vote went.

This is probably a fair analysis.

But I also get short-tempered with people who inflict it on me too much. I just keep it inside, though, and shun them on Facebook. Wink

Find something you enjoy, and post incessantly about it, or, ignore her.

The term fur baby is one of the most annoying things ever.

I absolutely agree. Those people bother me, and seeing children wasted on people who don't love and value them is an insult added to an injury for those who can't have children, I have no doubt.

Fur Baby. Fur Kid. No matter what the interest or hobby, there is always someone who tips it into crazy.

My wife and I are a couple of those people who wanted children but were unable to have them. We have taken that love and focused it on our dogs. They are still wonderful souls who give us love in return and we have a duty to provide them with a good life. So yeah, some of you may think that’s weird or crazy but I really don’t give a fuck. If you don’t like what someone posts about their dogs then don’t fucking read them.

Key word; P E T

As reminded by the folks we got our first lab from "She's a pet, not a person. And she is here for your family's enjoyment and entertainment, not the other way around." Good advice.

Of course with a lab, the two actually overlap since all they require of you is some loving care, good food, lots of water and JUST THROW THE DAMN THING AGAIN!!!

Damn, I'd double down on that one. Nobody gives NEAR the damn about your fuck trophy that you think they do...

As to "fur babys", I agree, I don't use that term, that's just too over the top. I do love my dogs though, and frankly, if my dog and the OP were both next to each other on fire, I'd hope the OP would at least get some side spray from the hose I'd be using to put my dog out...

I post very little on Facebook, but I always kind of wonder how many people have "unfollowed" me anyway.




"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."
