I am talking, of course, about the Facebook Braggers.
Ok ok, I know we ALL have an element of this inside of us. What's the point of updating our status unless its to shout something from the roof tops? We all do it. But there are some who do it ALL THE TIME.
Quite recently I have been on the verge of deleting a certain someone from my friends list because of this. Once intrigued about this persons life (as we used to be back in the day when Facebook was a novelty), I now have the urge to make negative comments every time they post an update (I never do). They irritate the hell out of me with their daily comments that seem to somehow have the knack of touching every fibre of every nerve in my body.
If I have had a rough night with the kids, you can bet your bottom dollar that this person will post the next morning about the amount of sleep they have had and how they are feeling refreshed. Money worries? Its a dead cert that this person will post about a bonus they have been given or how they are booking their next luxurious holiday. Crap day at the office? Ah dont worry this person has just got a promotion. And those days when the kids have been absolute devils? Their cherubs and their achievements are plastered all over my timeline.
I sound mean, bitter and jealous. Its not how its meant to come across. But sometimes the Facebook Braggers we all know and detest can get right on our humps.
So will I ever delete them? I doubt it. Its not their fault really. They are doing what we all do. Being proud of the good things in their life and why not at the end of the day?
And besides, I have every certainty that I am someone elses Facebook Bragger, but they wont be so rude as to blog about me....yet!
