Just been on fb and on the newsfeed i saw my ss has joined a group entitled "for anyone who hates all packies"! Her dad married my mum a year ago and we're recently become friends. She's quiet different to me but seeing as we're now related i make an effort with her. Her dd is a similar age to my ds so we've been on playdates, out of lunch etc. Now i have seen this i feel utterly discusted. I want to have nothing to do with her. What should i do? Confront her about it? Ignore it and just be casual with her at family gettogethers? I'm really shocked. I didn't ever imagine such an attitude from her. I have never seen any signs of this. Oh and surely facebook should ban such 'groups'?

get over it!!!

I would imagine that facebook would ban such groups. flag it up with them and see what happens.

i am not sure what I would do. erm, I definitely woulodn't want much to do with her though

shock that such groups are allowed on Fb, YANBU she sounds like she's better kept at a distance if they are her opinions angry

tigger32 Thu 23-Oct-08 21:06:20

Just thinking, have definitlely read it right?

tigger32 Thu 23-Oct-08 21:06:56

thats have you definitly read it right?

mamakim Thu 23-Oct-08 21:06:58

Peenut i am shocked that you think i should "get over it"

tigger32 Thu 23-Oct-08 21:07:42

blush my typing is very bad tonight sorry about spelling

SmallShips Thu 23-Oct-08 21:08:26

Yuk, i wouldnt be able to get over a family member doing that.

mamakim Thu 23-Oct-08 21:08:30

I even clicked on the group to check incase it was an anti-racism group or something but it was disgusting.

wessexgirl Thu 23-Oct-08 21:09:44

I agree with thisisyesterday - I'd contact the admins at facebook. I doubt they'd want this kind of thing on their site.

maretta Thu 23-Oct-08 21:09:57

Have you clicked on the group to see what it's about- just to check, it could be a pun or something.
That's not the normal spelling.

peenutt Thu 23-Oct-08 21:10:14

why are you shocked? It is my opinion and everybody has a different one and just because you don't agree doesn't make it wrong.

Atleast now you don't have to make an effort with her, which by the way is such a bitchy thing to say.

maretta Thu 23-Oct-08 21:10:30

oh ok. cross posts

peenutt Thu 23-Oct-08 21:11:24

i typed in the exact spelling you have put in your OP into face book and there is no such group.

AnarchyAunt Thu 23-Oct-08 21:13:08

Can you link to the group? I have just tried to find it on FB to report it but I can't...

LynetteScavo Thu 23-Oct-08 21:14:05

shock @ peenut.

I too would be disgusted. I'm not sure what you should do, tbh.

Personally, I would either ignore it, or send her an "I'm suprised to see you've joined that group" (depending on whether I'd had a glass of wine) and just be casual with her at family get togethers.

You don't have to see yourself as related to her. DH has "step siblings" that he has aquired in adult hood, and he in no way considers himself to be related to them.

harleyd Thu 23-Oct-08 21:15:06

i would be shocked and disgusted at anyone who found this acceptable

peenutt Thu 23-Oct-08 21:15:50

shock @ LynetteScavo

why would you need a glass of wine to send a simple message like that?

peenutt Thu 23-Oct-08 21:16:33

i think this thread is a crap attempt at a wind up

LynetteScavo Thu 23-Oct-08 21:17:41

Because I hate confrontation, peenut, and usually avoid it at all costs.

mamakim Thu 23-Oct-08 21:17:48

"if you all hate packies" it is actually called. Don't see how"making an effort" is a bitchy thing to say, she's someone i've become family members with in the last year so i'm making an effort to get along with her. But now she's outed herself as a racist!

nooOOOoonki Thu 23-Oct-08 21:19:28

unlike you your lovely post on another thread peenutt

peenutt Thu 23-Oct-08 21:19:41

so shes one of the 15 people in that group?

it does look shitty TBH.

mamakim Thu 23-Oct-08 21:21:58

Of course it's not a wind up. I'm very upset by this. Peenut just get lost.
