Facebook related moan warning

Since I've joined mn I can no longer ignore all the yummy mummy posts, the Huns xx , the calling all mummies etc...

You lot have ruined it all. Now when I see them, I can feel my teeth grind just a little.

Nearly every post contains one of the above (sobs)

Bring back my ignorance!!

My pet peeve is something like this FB status:

"Grrrr so annoyed right now"

Twenty responses of:
"You OK hun? What's up?"

"Don't want to talk about it chick"

WHY MENTION IT THEN?
Aaarrrrgggghhhhh
Hulk smash!!!!

I have a zero tolerance policy for those posts. They have an hour to share what's up or they're unfriended.

Seeyou it's called vaguebooking, it's terrible and should be banned!

Twizzelgrl Tue 10-Nov-15 08:40:28

I can't bear a "hun". Turns me into Attila the...

Make some American friends. We never use X's, hun's, or "mummy"

Actually, I was giggling a bit at my mother's British friend's page. All her post comments are followed by X's. All of them. Every. Single. One.

I thought you guys were exaggerating. By my own eyes, it's an epidemic. grin

My dad was vaguebooking yesterday. I gold him to get a grip and stop it. He's also going in about people airing their dirty laundry on fb then he does it himself. hmm I just ignore mostly, but when he puts up that he will be dead soon I can't help but tell him to do it quietly. hmm yes my dads a prick.

I hun all the time and I'm not attention seeking, its just a word. Yabvu, hun and possibly a bit racist as its part of some cultures to use that term of endearment.

LockTheTaskBar Tue 10-Nov-15 08:56:35

MN has ruined me in so many ways. Yes, there is all the stuff that the OP complains about. But also other stuff, that it is incomprehensible to me that NOT EVERYONE KNOWS - wtf?

eg - what is a velcro baby? ARE YOU INSANE?

Spoony fuckers. "Stop being a fucking spoony fucker!" "Stop being a WHAT?" Oh ffs.

and so on

ShamelessBreadAddict Tue 10-Nov-15 08:57:53

Damn it Hayde you beat me to it! Was about to say "nothing wrong with a Hun if you're referring to Atilla or the 1st century Huns fnar fnar".

It's the people who talk in #hashtags that piss me off.

Had a lovely day at the beach #Ilovemykids #supermummy #babylove #arentIwonderful #YourLivesArentAsGoodAsMine #DesperateAttentionSeeking

You used to be an interesting person, now you exist through #stupidfuckinghashtags

spritefairy Tue 10-Nov-15 08:58:51

Hahahaha racist?!!

You think I am being racist because I know object to hun being used every 5 minutes?

Wow

ShamelessBreadAddict Tue 10-Nov-15 08:59:32

Yabvu, hun and possibly a bit racist as its part of some cultures to use that term of endearment.

Sorry, can you enlighten me here Twizzel?

Twizzelgrl Tue 10-Nov-15 09:00:26

I'm Italian American and hun is used a lot, I do find all the hun bashing quite uncomfortable. Its just a word .

HaydeeofMonteCristo Tue 10-Nov-15 09:02:57

Ha ha to op being racist. It's nothing to do with race.

I was going to say it's racist to call people huns, but couldn't think of a way to make it funny....

NerrSnerr Tue 10-Nov-15 09:03:24

Oh god. I'm a racist for hating the word hun! It is annoying when people overuse it, it seems so sickly and false.
