^ Exactly that. It aggravates me greatly too.

Alright I have a new pet peeve. Every time I write something like that and feel too lazy to quote, behold! my post starts a new page :angry:

I hate the way facebook requires you to be always "on." I thought I was finished doing project work for today, and I've just been messaged there with more stuff I have to do. There is no such thing as office hours anymore. :mad:

Welcome to the modern world, where everyone can keep track of everyone and it's so commonplace nobody realises there's a problem.

Ikr? And then everyone wonders why we're all so stressed out and unhappy. :rolleyes:

Well, the way the world's going, it won't be long until we get soma, and then we can all be happy and content in the caring arms of our glorious leaders in government.

While the world won't be an exact replica of Brave New World, the prevalence of casual government surveillance and doing everything to keep the people content is notable - it's well known they're spying on us, and the government lowering tax on beer and bingo a few months ago is a perfect modernisation of the Roman "panem et circenses" idea, i.e. give the people what they want and they won't rebel when you fuck them over.

That's why when people ask me what my "shift" is at work, I just laugh in their faces.  :lol:

 

Facebook is just absolutely terrible though. All it seems like is just a contest to compare your fake life, and "adults" (older people) act like children on it. "My family is cooler than your family!" "Look at my perfect life, significant other, children, grandchildren, selfie, whatever..." I just honestly give zero fucks about what anyone posts. I post maybe 1-2 times every few weeks and if I didn't need it for work I'd honestly delete it.

 

Unfortunately, because it's so popular, it's a necessary tool for my job.

^ I avoid it for years without any trouble. Only last year I got roped in because it's the best way to organise projects etc. It's such a constant stress-maker. Surely I should be allowed to stop working for the day at 8 in the evening?  :wacko: Ack!

I just refuse to view or reply to work-related stuff after I go home. If someone asks me why I didn't do anything/whatever, I give them a blank look and say, "Oh, sorry, haven't checked my Facebook yet." They get the message eventually.

^That's a good strategy. I generally stay logged out and check my emails for notifications, so I know when it's safe to log in :lol: I got caught today though, had to message loads of people and ended up being asked to do something, which is harder to ignore when they know you've seen it. I hate that "seen by" feature. It's so inconvenient.

the fact the messenger is now a separate app is so useful, makes ignoring people so much easier. plus on the actual desktop site, i'm permanently offline. so easy to ignore people i don't want to talk to :P

I have a certain time every night after which I just don't open facebook. If I get a notification on my phone I don't check it until after breakfast the next day. My friends know not to expect to talk to me after 8pm :P 

 

Never had any trouble with uni work on facebook, 'cause I think the people I did group work with had the same rule as I did

:mad: Yeah, you still haven't looked at my Minneapolis pictures with all the SpongeBob rides at Nick Universe, WHY HAVEN'T YOU LOOKED AT THEM ARE YOU OK WHY ARE YOU IGNORING US ON FACEBOOK? :P (But really, the rides are super fucking cute) I think your situation with your mom and FB is fucking awful and it would turn me against the site, too! I'm still addicted to checking it all the time, but it's definitely not as fun as it used to be; I almost check it mindlessly now or to kill time on my phone, and like you, I don't post all that often, either; mine serves more as a tool to comment/like others' stuff (and occasionally stalking, but not too often because I'm finding I don't give a fuck about a lot of people these days :lol:

 

 

 

 

I may have mentioned this one before, but it bugs me when fictional characters that are of a certain age in present day are given names that are currently popular. I was just watching a movie in which the main character had the name "Kaylie," and she was probably 45 years old. Kaylie and its various spellings was nowhere near being a popular name in the '60s and '70s; yeah, the character may name her daughter Kaylie if she were born today or within the last 25 years or so, but that just wasn't a plausible name choice back then.

Between my mom (an actual middle-aged woman) and Brandon (who acts like a middle-aged woman) and all our stupid work-related social media posts and the idiotic comments that ensue, I'm just so over it. I've said it before, but if Mark Zuckerberg died a fiery death I wouldn't shed a single tear, or even blink, for that matter. Fucker. Life-ruiner. Ugh.

 

Also, I've never thought about that before, but it will seriously bug me for the rest of eternity now! That's so strange, and you're right, it happens often! :o
