I haven’t posted in awhile, but I had to update after what happened today. Due to Facebook, I’ve lost three members of my extended family. No, not to death, but to stupidity and ignorance…or arrogance. It was only a few weeks ago that I unfriended my husband’s sister and niece. Why? Because his niece is pregnant with a boy, and I couldn’t sleep at night without at least trying to make sure she knew that circumcision was not necessary. So I posted an informative link from a medical professional’s perspective and asked her to take a look, not knowing what her stance on the procedure was. Well, my sister-in-law told me to mind my own business. I fired back that maybe she should mind her own business. Well, it got heated, and she stepped over the line by telling her daughter to post pictures of the baby’s circumcision. I called her a bitch, expressed my sympathy for the poor baby growing up with such a nasty grandmother, and then I unfriended them both. I for one don’t want to hear from either of them that the baby will indeed be cut. End of story on that for now…
Then my blood cousin unfriends me last night. I didn’t even know it happened until her sister messaged me with “Wow, I can’t believe my sister.” I was clueless since the only thing I had posted to Sheena (the bitch of the jungle) was asking her why she was only posting in #hashtags. Literally, every single post was a picture with at least 10 hashtags. It was getting a bit tedious, so I was curious why she kept doing it. Afterall, FB doesn’t really use them, so they’re pointless, and it was an innocent question.
The give some back story, Sheena is a special kind of weird. She has two children from separate men when she was barely out of high school, and she is raising them on her own with whichever man she’s managed to get into her pants that month. She also has big boobs, which she LOVES taking pictures of and posting them all over her FB page. I swear, there were numerous times I wanted to unfriend her but refrained since she’s “family”. After all, you can choose your friends but not your family. This narcissist will take a self picture and make sure she always gets some cleavage in the shot. This person also can’t seem to take a picture of her kids without making sure her face is in the shot too. I had gotten to the point of wanting to block her from showing on my feed at all. Then the drama started. She is in the hospital, then she’s better, then she’s back in the hospital. She must have been in and out of that place half a dozen times, all the while I’m thinking how the hell can she have such good medical insurance?
Finally, she’s better, and that’s when the hashtags started. It’s like it was her new religion. She can’t have a thought unless it starts with #. #lovemykids #imasurvivor #lovemylife #itsgreattobealive and on and on and on. So I asked the dreaded question, “Seriously Sheena, what’s with all the hashtags?” I thought maybe I’d get a halfway sensible response, maybe even have some of her friends back me and ask the same thing. Who knows if they did or not, because she unfriended me before I could even read her response. So my other cousin does a screen shot and sends it to me. Without writing it verbatim, she used hashtags throughout her vicious response, telling me to #gfys twice! If you don’t know what that means, I’m sure google can help. She asked who I thought I was, and that if I didn’t like it, that I didn’t have to post or read her wall, since it was hers, and that she didn’t give a shit about my opinion. Blah blah blah.
Thinking that maybe she didn’t remember who I was, I messaged her, asking if that was how she spoke to family, and I told her that I was ashamed of her. Was this how she talked to her elders or did she show no respect to anyone? She fired back asking how we were family, and that I must have issues talking to such a sick woman like that. That she was lucky to be alive, and who gives a shit about hashtags. She got quite ugly, and I’m thinking, yeah, who gives a shit about hashtags, which is why I was asking you why, you stupid bitch? Then she even tells me to go back to sitting on my fat ass on facebook all day, like that’s what I do. She’s on it 24/7, and she has the nerve to tell me that I’m on it all day? Wow! She even threatened to report me to FB and have my account deleted if I dared message her again.
So I fired back, calling her a crazy bitch and telling her that I no longer considered her family after the first #gfys and then I blocked her.
OMG, what the hell is wrong with people these days if family treats their own like this? Hell, like my mom used to tell me, you should treat each other at least as well as you would a stranger on the street! Sheena, you stuck up twat, my news feed will be a lot less tiresome without your incessant whining and narcissistic photos clogging it up.
Oh, and I wish your son the best of luck with having you as a mother. That incestuous sounding relationship you have with your daughter can’t possibly be healthy on that little boy, who must want love that you clearly are only giving to her.
