To think this friend has got a bloody cheek?

Friend (not a close friend) has become involved with a MLM company over the past year. She is constantly adding me and everyone else on her FB friends list to groups regarding her 'business', chat groups about it, and tagging me and many others in daily posts about competitions she is running and new products. Literally every single day she adds me to something or tags me.

Yesterday, she did a massive rant on FB about people adding her to their 'business groups' and 'trying to sell stuff to her' and said anyone who does it to her in the future will get deleted and blocked!

AIBU to think she's got a fucking cheek moaning about this? She is quite fond of trying to dictate (via FB status) about what others think/do/say whilst doing that very thing herself, but this takes the biscuit!

I hope you responded with, pot, kettle!

Pop that on as a comment 🤣

Did you not point out the blatant hypocrisy to her?!

I've been very tempted to put on something about Pot and Kettle but she's one of those types who gets 'upset' very easily

'Glad you posted this, I thought I was being harsh to delete and block you for doing that so I just put up with it but I'm lad you think its OK for me to go ahead and do it' then do it!

She also went on a non essential bus journey of over an hour last week then moaned on her status about 'selfish' people making unnecessary bus journeys whilst she was on the bus!

Maybe it’s time she was ‘upset’ she sounds like a self centred moron.

And nobody commented to ask where she was going?!

EvaporatedHour Sat 24-Oct-20 01:53:41

On her bus status at the end of it she put 'and yes, before someone says anything, my journey is non essential. But I have my reasons and that's my business'

It's always a case of 'I can do as I please so don't you dare question me' in her attitude.

I wouldn’t be able to help myself with the pot & kettle response - and I would also ask her to quit adding me or I would block her

This seems to becoming more common with using FB for MLM. You are not being UR, it is a pain in the arse and if you add in the hypocrisy you have described a valid reason to sabotage her internet connection so she can never post again, ever. And when I say ever, I mean ever. Good luck. If you need technical advice then let me know.grin

Job done

How????

Just take a screenshot of her post and next time she adds you or tags you, post the screenshot as a response. It's hard to argue with yourself.

FortunesFave Sat 24-Oct-20 02:26:25

Why don't you just stop being friends with her? confused Why do people waste their lives getting annoyed at people like this...and call them friends.

That's not a friend you want!

Whycantibetangy Sat 24-Oct-20 02:26:41

@k1233 you are a genius!

ClareBlue Sat 24-Oct-20 02:29:03

Sorry I don't actually know. It's just something I dream about in the middle of the night and hope someone will tell me some day how to do it😄

Smileandtheworldsmileswithyou Sat 24-Oct-20 02:53:18

Why is she your friend? She sounds awful.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Sat 24-Oct-20 04:22:40

I think you should fight fire with fire - post a status about how much you hate people who are so lacking in self awareness that they keep posting about how much they hate their own behaviour in others!

RunBackwards Sat 24-Oct-20 04:57:43

I just unfollow people like this.

FB rarely upsets me, I find it useful for knowing what's going on locally and keeping in (light) touch with old friends and acquaintances I actually like, but my feed doesn't have any of this nonsense. They might be posting but I don't see it grin

Kalula Sat 24-Oct-20 05:46:33

She gets away with it, OP, because people like you sit back and LET HER!!! If she's not a close friend, why do you even CARE what she says to you in return? Jesus stand up to her! CFers get away with it because of enablers like yourself.

This behaviour is called projection and may be a sign of a personality disorder
