Cluttered in with all of the other retarded shit on my Facebook, I keep seeing this stupid fucking meme pop up, and it makes me want to physically beat someone. Trying to respond to this with anything remotely cerebral would just confuse and probably anger any of the sheep that post it, so I'm airing it as a grievance, baby! Here it is...
Lets see who is paying attention. Every single one of you are on my friend's list, as a result of a conscious decision, I wanted you there!! I am not only glad to count you as friends, but as family. Let's see who on my friends list actually pays attention. Copy and paste this as your ...status. I'll be...watching to see ...who really... is.... I cherish family & friendships.
So what exactly is the message here? The lunatic that came up with was sitting around one day thinking that she (sorry ladies...I have to make that assumption) values family and friendships. That's cool, I guess. Because she's one of the saddest people on the planet though, she needs to sell herself to her friends and use this as some sort of shameless self-promotion...as if it's a god-damned aberration or something. But wait, there's more! Let's get all fucking power trippy now! It's not enough to me that you know that I'm a person that values family and friendships...I'm gonna need you to validate our friendship by showing me that you read my facebook posts and copying and pasting it as your status. Yup...this high and mighty witch who values family and friendships so much is so hypocritical that her first action to demonstrate that to you is placing a condition on your friendship as she sits back and watches who her true friends are by whatever assholes copy and paste this garbage. What the fuck is the message? I'm the most insecure person in the world...that's the fucking message!
Then, it's even more insane when you factor in that thousands of people are reading this over and over and thinking, oh I better copy and paste this because they're WATCHING me now! I don't want this person to think I'm not paying attention so instead I'll throw every last ounce of dignity I have out the window so I can be a sheep to this insecure asshole!
Trust me on this...if this has ever popped up on your Facebook and you responded by saying..."Oh that's nice, let me copy and paste it to my status to validate our friendship"...go see a therapist now. Don't walk...run!
