Better than anti-depressants! … Sort of.
1st Annual National Unfriend Day
November 18, 2010Posted by on
Seriously? So you’re telling me that we as a country have become so irrationally self-absorbed and lost in our social status that we feel the need to solicit and comercialize an official day to de-friend the unnecessary a-holes on our Facebook, My-space, and other social networking pages?!? I’m just venturing out on a limb here, but I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in saying “WHAT THE F***ing F***?”
It really wasn’t enough that Hallmark capitalizes on all the other holidays (major and ridiculous alike) that used to have REAL meanings? NO… Now… Now we need to have an actual day where we recognize that some of the people we “friended” on our Social Networking sites are just there because they (or if we’re being honest… WE) want to see how many kids we popped out since High School, if we made anything if ourselves, became a Doctor, Lawyer, or just a homeless jackass… maybe perhaps even got *gasp* fat? No… we have to actually face up to that tiny little facade that some of us were actually enjoying hiding behind. Because let’s face it, there’s only a few reasons why any of us actually use it any more right? We keep in contact with some people we don’t get to see or talk to as much as we’d like. Then there’s always those other people that Facebook stalk other people (creepy much?) you know who you are! And then… there’s the serious and fully dedicated users… others well… some of them just have nothing but time. Really, I could go on and on we all know all about the different types of Facebook users out there and who should be on our friends list and who shouldn’t…
The bottom line is that most of us do try to take the time out of our busy schedules to occasionally cut out a list of people that we consider to be “toxic” and/or unnecessary to our everyday lives and that also includes our virtual social worlds too. So…. riddle me this then world… why in the name of Playstation, Bigscreen TVs and all that is ruling my life, do we need to call up the freaking media, AGAIN (you’ll learn that I have a very strong aversion towards the media) and tell them that we’re going to declare November 17th as National Freaking Unfriend Day????
You know… since we no longer value anything of ethical or moral value at this point in our nation’s history any more I guess… Goodbye fat cheerleader “friend” from High School, I actually think you’re a bitch. Goodbye co-worker from hell… you were just a frenemy… I only accepted your request to see if you lied about your “Sick Leave” and also… please pass a note to your cubemate, I’m defriending him as well because he farts a lot, goodye stinky!
