Do any of you have this problem? My wife is the youngest of six siblings. She and I are the only adults in our extended family that are still employed. All of her siblings have retired. As they are mostly early baby boomers, most are not as technically savvy as y'all are, so none of her siblings (that I know of) have Facebook profiles or are very active on Facebook. Now all but one of her siblings have kids, us included. I think the younger generation misses not having Mamaw and Peepaw on Facebook. (Side RANT: what the fruck ever happened to the words GRANDMOTHER / GRANDFATHER / GRANDMA / GRANDPA???? If any kid ever calls me Peepaw, I will kick his/her teeth out. Even kids well into their 40's are still using those terms . . . ) But I digress: Anyway, Someone in this extended entourage has determined that if Mamaw and Peepaw aren't going to participate on Facefuck, they will bring Facefuck to text messaging. So now I am on multiple text strings with 12 to 18 participants all sharing, Facefuck style, what is going on in their lives . . . . . REALLY??? I don't care or need to know what campground you stayed at last night. I don't care or need to know how big a dump little craphead did in his diaper. I don't need to see that "cute little duck" that followed you out of Walmart this morning. Nor do I give a crap about the 38 responses to each photo posted!!!!!! It has gotten so bad, that I have taken to turning OFF my ringer on my phone. I don't need 35 "notifications" per hour while I am trying to concentrate at work. I told my wife and daughters, if you need to get a hold of me, call my desk phone. I won't have the cell phone on. The only thing my cell phone is good for anymore is as an alarm clock and to check in on Addicts early AM and before I go to bed. Otherwise, it is off. Oh yeah, ask to be taken off of these threads? That usually elicits fifty or sixty responses. "Why is Uncle Zoid so grumpy." "Does Uncle Zoid need to be on anti-depressants?" "Who is Uncle Zoid angry with? You? Me? The other twenty-three?" Nobody remembers who started these strings and my $99 Android won't let me remove myself. It's gotten so bad I am ready to go to Walmart and buy a burner cell phone for $65, and change the phone number I have had for the last 19 years to get off of their grid. I mean really?? THIS is why I stopped using Facebook over a decade ago. Oh yeah, @Hannibal , this thread is for you too . . . . . . . . I got work to do. Gotta get back to real life. Carry on and share your stories . . . . . . . Zoid out.
