What the heck?!? UPDATE, Post 27
« on: August 11, 2010, 04:08:23 PM »
Posting in this category because it seemed appropriate, but mods, feel free to move to Techno if it's better there.

I usually keep my FB status fairly lighthearted. Today it was, "Having peach ice cream for lunch. Off to get my head read." I had a couple of, "Yeah, it's fruit and dairy, how can you go wrong?" kind of posts, and I said, "I can justify anything that tastes good!"

A few minutes after the postings, I got a PM from someone I recently friended. I went to school with her and we weren't close, but she is in the school friends group, so I friended her. Imagine my shock to get the following from her:

I am probably out of line here, however, I take your posts seriously. I read them and a great deal of the time it is like hearing my sister, XXX. She and you shared the same attitude about food and drink... she died 01-04-08. My hope for you is that you will begin to look at your doctors care for what it is, care and concern and not comic relief. Again, I am sure I am out of place but you seem to have a lot of people who love you and care for you.... you would be sorely missed as my sister is.

??? What? ???

I'm thinking of replying, "Thank you for your concern. I'll be fine." Is that too abrupt?

No, that's a more than sufficiently polite response. What the heck? Nosy person is nosy.

Um, wow.

"I am probably out of line here." She's good with the understatement there, isn't she?

Your proposed response is fine. (Can you imagine what she'd make of some of my statuses if she takes everything 100% seriously?!)

Agree. And then defriend. This could only be the beginning.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.  >:D

Right now I have a quote from the song "Amos Moses." LOL!

My status updates are never, ever serious.  Well, almost never.  I make a lot of booze jokes in my status updates.  I have, at most, one beer a week.  I also talk about cheese a lot.  It's my favorite food group.  She'd have a field day with me.

I don't think you have to respond at all.  To someone this nosy and intrusive who is sure you have something wrong with you, "I'm fine," will just sound like you're being defensive.  Of course, you could send it and then block her.  But otherwise I think it's just inviting more commentary.


I have a blog.  I hate that word.

I would change "I'll be fine" to "I am fine"
No need to give the impression you may need help (from her... ::) )

That's just plain weird. I'd defriend her. Unless you want to wait for more off the wall comments for the sheer amusement value (which is what I'd be tempted to do).

When Amos Moses was a boy his daddy would use him for alligator bait!

The next time we talk I'll tell you what I think you should reply with.   >:D

And my current status is a quote from "Resevoir Dogs"...I'm on a Tarrentino kick.
I have finally found the bar I can't get thrown out of....

What on earth? I can't see that a post about eating peach ice cream would indicate any kind of health problem. That's just weird! It's a good thing she isn't friended to me, she would see my post "Help! I'm addicted to playing My Tribe!" and completely panic.  ::)

I saw that and thought definitely!  I really dislike peaches - to put in icecream you do need your head read!  ;D

I think she's gonna have a lot of problems with Facebook, if she takes everyones status seriously.  ::)  The other day I think mine read something about killing people and getting away with it (cos I'm a forensic scientist!)  I wonder if she would report me to the cops.  :)
