I have, too, although it can be a rabbit hole.  I have been on a friend's page, then looked at one of THEIR friends pages because they look familiar, then something there catches my eye and leads me to someone else's page and before you know it I'm thinking,"Oh, they went to Ireland on vacation.  That looks like a nice hotel.  Wait a minute, who the hell are these people?"

 

I've done that a little. My sister loves doing it. I think the folks unhappy with Facebook probably are the ones with a *lot* of "friends" and are trying to keep up with all the gazillion posts. I know some people who have 500 friends. One person has 1,000. One time I accepted a friend request from a high school friend of my sister. Yikes! Each day she posted several recipes. I clicked on whichever thing quietly unfriends people (I bet she never noticed).

There’s also some stuff you can do if you tap/click on the 3-dot icon by the post. I have a cousin I don’t want to unfriend because I want to hear about family stuff, but omg I don’t need 15 shares a day from her favorite inspirational sites!  If you “hide” certain posts enough, Facebook seems to learn, at least for a while, to show you less of them.

Hoo boy...I've done this too. One of my 'friends" posts several religious things each day. She's a nice person so I clicked on that "hide everything from so and so". If I don't want to go that far, I click on "snooze so and so for 30 days". In the meantime, once a week I check their FB sites to see if anything new and/or funny is being posted.

Ususally when ads pop up on FB I can see how they relate, however vaguely, to something I may have searched but today I am getting ad after ad for genealogy related stuff. I guess it could be totally random.  So today's peeve: should I be more peeved at random FB ads or at FB ads that clearly demonstrate 'they' have been stalking me?

This past winter I was discussing something (can't remember what) with my sister in emails. Later on that day I had ads popping up on Facebook related to that subject. It's kinda spooooky (as Christopher Walken likes to say).

Peeve of the day, I ordered a tin (28oz) of Sweety Peppers from Amazon. They arrived today in a plastic/tyvo(?) bag, no padding whatsoever...nothing just can in bag. Can is dented in several places, top and bottom don't seem to bulge so I guess it is safe to eat. Sure glad I didn't order the glass jar of these peppers!! I've had bad luck lately ordering things in glass. Couldn't they have wrapped it in bubble wrap or cardboard?? I don't get the laziness. Fortunately I recently found these little peppers locally so won't have to order online again.

Given what Amazon does to its workers, I don't think laziness is a thing that exists at Amazon.  Working people so hard that corners get cut, now that I would believe.

It's not employee laziness. There's actual computer software that dictate how things are packaged, type of wrapping and box used.

Aside from the inconsistency of leaving packages in the mailroom instead of delivering to my door (I live in an apartment high rise), I've hardly had any issues. And it also depends if it was something you purchased from a third-party seller or from Amazon. I know I've had issues with the former sometimes.

I got my 2nd Covid vaccine yesterday so yay me - but my peeve is why do people have to insist on telling you all the possible side effects you might experience?  I can read.  I know what potentially could happen, I really don't need to hear about what happened to Aunt Mary or your neighbour's best friend's mailman.  What will be will be.  Me worrying about the worst case scenarios isn't going to help - why would anyone think this is a good idea?

I’ve had to unfollow people who talk too much about “embroiderying” things.  NO, you are going to do some embroidery, planning to embroider, or are embroidering something.  I have written horrible snarky replies (where there was no chance of accidentally posting it), but that non-word bothers me so much more than your/you’re or there/their/they’re.

In the same vein, I get super annoyed when people used "text speech"in non text situations (not here, fortunately!). So in another forum I am on one person continually uses "u" for "you", "r" for "are", etc. etc. This was within a very long stream of a conversation where the replies were quite detailed, so anyone taking the trouble to post a response certainly had the time to spell out a three letter word, right? Maybe its because I rarely text (only in response to a text on my phone) but even when I do, I make the effort to spell out words as they are actually spelled so as not to perpetuate this new abomination in written communication.

My pet peeve today (and every day because these companies are evil) is MLM sellers hawking shit constantly. No I do not want to buy your skin care. No I do not want to try your diet plan. No I do not want your yoni egg/wand. No I do not want to invest in your crypto currency class. 

The thing that spurred me on this rant is I got an invite to a Facebook Live "master class" on "wealth codes." The by-line was "break out of the matrix and quit your mindless day job so you can create your own schedule and be in blissful abundance and wealth." Which has MLM written all over it.

In food?  I guess they're trying to distinguish the difference between fat, muscle, etc...?  

My pet peeve:  The Ontario vaccine booking site is a NIGHTMARE.  No wonder people from some communities (elderly, people from non-English speaking communities) have lower vaccination rates.  Pharmacies are so much easier, as are hospital-run clinics (though the hospital clinic I used for my first dose is now redirecting to the province.  WHY????!!!!!).  I'll be eligible for my second dose at the end of the month (Ontario and the rest of Canada are working on a delayed second dose schedule.  At one point, it was 16 weeks (!!!), so my second dose was originally schedule for the end of July.  Now I can possibly get mine before Canada Day, but that clinic has yet to contact me.  I have some backup - I registered for the wait list at one nearby pharmacy and am waiting for second dose wait list registration at another chain.  I hate Costco, so I'm avoiding that at all cost).

That would make sense in a certain context, I suppose--like in some kind of presentation of nutrition and exercise (eg, “I’m trying to eliminate fat in my diet” vs “I’m trying to eliminate body fat”). But I mean in conversations or commercials specifically about weight loss products or techniques—like “This pill made Griselda lose 430 pounds of body fat.”

Yes I know .. if I really want one of the kids will help, but it’s always something with me .. my I pad, my phone, our new smart TVs.  I just hate to bother them as they have their own problems.  I think my seven yr old grandson can help me .. he knows everything, the smarty pants, lol.  All my friends are of my age .. stupid too.  Thanks for the advice tho.  Maybe I’ll try again. 😀

I worked for a very big company in the City, and was surprised not one of the many people I knew aren’t on Facebook.  We were all about the same age, so maybe they weren’t interested in going on for some reason.

I went on Facebook once to see what the big deal was.  All I saw were people dressed up, or on vacation.  The comments were all the same, for instance “you look beautiful” .. “stunning” .. “so gorgeous”, blah, blah.  They all looked like crap .. hahaha.  What bullshit.  It’s all competition, to me anyhow.  Do I feel bad that I didn’t go to the Bahamas for two weeks?  Hell no.  I go to Disney every year in the car.image.png.8b19657e7a5486659cb176f33061f7c9.png 

P.s.  I have no idea how that thing up there came on.  A Unicorn?

I assume you know that it all depends on who you’re looking at on Facebook? I have no issue with people being dressed up or comments complimenting them or vacation photos (after all, looking “like crap” is in the eye of the beholder), but those things are not all that’s there. The people I know talk about books, movies, TV, politics (a blessing and a curse), pets, kids, causes, etc. Also, random observations and funny things we have seen that day, stuff we’ve made, old pictures we’ve found, invitations, events, birthday wishes, interaction among people who would otherwise not have reconnected or who are far apart from each other, and general stuff we think about. 

Yes, there is a ton of nonsense on FB, obviously. But that all depends on who and what you’re connected to. 

My peeve may be people that assume that FB is somehow not a valid method of communication/community. To decide it’s all nonsense and garbage for superficial pursuits is just silly—that’s like summarily condemning the telephone because of spam calls. In fact, I communicate with my 90-year-old grandma on Facebook, haha! It’s 2021; social media is a thing people use to connect.

Thank you for saying this. Facebook is how I stay in touch and communicate with all my relatives in India; reconnected with friends I grew up with from my childhood neighborhood, and friends I'd lost touched with. I'm not on it daily, 24/7, but I'm also in several groups--book, shows, breast cancer support (since Lolly's Lock's had to shut down due to lack of funds, but the women I met and got to know and become friends with are the bravest strongest women I know, I connected on that platform).

That said, if people hate it, that's fine. But I mostly remained quiet because I felt like I was some narcissistic self-absorbed person for having a Facebook account, when I read (not just here), the generalization that people have it so they can rack up as many likes as they can.

FB haters - that will be my peeve of the day.  My husband hates FB even though he rarely uses the account he has.  The hate isn't based on what he himself has ever personally experienced, it's based on whatever news article he's just listened to that is bashing FB.  Sometimes with good reason I totally concede, but even so it drives me crazy when he starts ranting about FB when he knows perfectly well that our kids and I as well as many of our friends and family have FB accounts and use it to some degree or another.   

You get out of FB what you want to get out of FB and when it stops being a place I want to visit to share family news or to play games or to visit with 'friends' I've made through various FB groups I'll stop going there.  Until then I wish he'd stop letting the media decide what he thinks about something he never uses!

My niece lives out what she calls her "best life" on FB.  It bears little to no resemblance to her real life.  We (close family members) don't out her - in that we don't comment on her obviously exaggerated (or outright false) posts but honestly why make up crap when you have family among your FB friends who know perfectly well that you're LYING?

But a lot of people think their husband is the best husband. Maybe the person doesn’t have the best of everything 24/7—but it doesn’t mean that something that makes them happy enough to post about it is fake. I suspect many people are full of crap, but many are not. (And maybe some of the full-of-crappers are just trying to feel positive about their possibly unsatisfying lives in whatever way they can?)

Of course there is going to be a subset of people who engage in “look at me“ posturing and bragging on Facebook (and anywhere online, including here, probably), and some “who says that?” moments—just like there are in workplaces, social circles, email, family events, over the phone, the entire actual world. It’s not like that kind of thing is a rule of having a Facebook account. Or that that’s why everyone has a FB account. It depends who you know, I guess.

And believe me, there are more than enough people who are perfectly fine sharing their “worst life” (and, somehow, it can feel as awkward and cringe-worthy as it would in person)!

Oh, also—Facebook can be a great and free resource for small businesses, especially over the last shit-show of a year (oy, my poor BF took a giant leap of faith to buy a floundering niche store, of which he became the official owner on…January 1, 2020). And it has helped me find homes for 10 shelter cats! 

It’s not that Facebook isn’t full of peeveworthy things (because it is—like anything that involves great numbers of people), but its very existence isn’t, to me, one of those things.

On the other hand the people who endlessly complain are worse IMO.  It's exhausting sometimes - to the point where at least two of my relatives are on ignore - because they seem to use FB as a personal diary with entry after entry talking about the latest "woe is my life" issue.  After awhile you realize the last thing they want is advice or offers of help, they just need to vent I guess.

Peeve of this week - When a person replies to a text but does not even respond to what I said and instead starts ranting about something going on in their life. I have a friend who we might go a day or so without texting and the moment I send a text, he will not even acknowledge what I said and just talk about whatever he wants to. He's always been this way to some degree but it has gotten way worse and I just get so irritated lately when he does this. 

 

ETA: I have had to bring this up to him before and every time he apologizes and says he will get better about it. But it never lasts long.

I mop our floors with diluted vinegar, mainly because of the cats, whom I can’t keep from walking into the kitchen if that’s where I am (though they do stay away if I’m using the scary, scary steam mop). I don’t want them to get some soapy chemical on their hands and feet and then lick them.

OH! I should add that vinegar can make a cat sick on its own, but if it’s adequately diluted, you should have no problem.
