Facebook, We Can't Stand it Anymore...

Oh Facebook... 

We love you so much but there's a problem.  We keep seeing these status updates and they're at best tedious and at worst so obnoxious that we want to start karate punching. And we really want to say something obnoxious in response BUT WE CAN'T.  Well, I guess we can but we don't want to hurt anyone's feelings or set off some nasty flame war or have all the moms at our elementary school de-friend us.  So we say nothing. 

[Editor's note: We fully understand that we can be guilty of the this too. For example, Lydia is one of the people who feels compelled to frequently post pictures of her food. How nice for you, Lydia! You made chicken!]

And every time we see some thing like this: "You'd think after days of being home sick together the kids and I would be going crazy, but no! Instead it's been such fun and we have just loved spending so much precious time together!"

We want to post something like this: "You'd think after three years of insipid postings that I would block you from my feed, but no! Instead I practice my hammering skills - on my skull!"

But we CAN'T. So we have a favor to ask.  Send us all the Facebook status updates that annoy you (better do it anonymously) and we'll respond to them.  Hopefully it will help us purge the urge to snark whenever someone we know posts that they have a bad case of the Mondays.

Leave us a comment here or on Facebook or Twitter, and we'll pick a bunch to respond to and post it later in the week.  Thank you so much!

xo, Kate & Lydia
