… a little bit of this, that and a lot more

FB Faux Pas

This letter is way overdue. Although this is supposed to be history, I am still getting flack and phonecalls about this. Unbelievable? You tell me….




To all my FB buddies


I. Am. Sorry.


I should have realised that you are serious FB fans. True believers. Worse than any religious or political group.


I sincerely regret that I thought it funny (read: sarcastic) to change my relationship status to “it’s complicated”. Although…any relationship is complicated, show me one that isn’t.


I sincerely regret that I did not realise people take anything said on FB so very seriously.


I honestly thought FB was just a place to post pictures and be funny (read: comedic). Oh, and to get lots of airtime (read: attention). Apparently this is not the case.


Nevermind that I did it as a prank. And as a personal social survey. Nevermind that my suspicions were in fact confirmed by your reactions. Not that you pounce on anything remotely sensationalist. Of COURSE not?! That’s another error in judgment on my part. Will I ever learn?


Never in my wildest dreams did I contemplate that such an itty bitty thing would cause such a major uproar.


I now realise that whatever gets said or shared on FB is serious, and should NOT be taken lightly, or be made fun of.


Then again, none of my true friends even blinked at the faux pas, cos THEY knew what the low-down was. And they have a SOH.


But to the rest. Again… I will NEVER EVER treat FB – or you, my dearest FB friends – with such disdain ever AGAIN.








SO. What’s your take on it? Out of line? Or out of line?

    No, because people – by default – are selfish and inconsiderate

  10. Killakat said:

    Bwhahahahaha! You should have seen the uproar I caused over the festive season when I made a comment about sticking firecrackers up some people where the sun don’t shine. Now come and tell Auntie Linnie why you are having relationship problems. We can discuss it over some Provitas and a slice of cheese. xxx
