5 Things The Magic Valley Needs To Stop Doing On Facebook Right Now
I love most of my friends on Facebook. The key word is "most". This rant is not for them. This is for a few stragglers who did not get the memo on things they need to stop doing on Facebook right now. Here are my top 5 posts that need to be discontinued before life in the Magic Valley crumbles because of them.
Stop telling me to "Copy and Paste"
You know the first thing I do when I have a friend that asks me to "copy and paste"? I decide right then that I will NOT copy and paste. Yes, I love the Lord, too. And, no, it does not mean that I follow Satan just because I scrolled past your ridiculous request that probably originated in the fiery abyss.
Stop posting medical pictures
I am sorry that your lawnmower hit a stick that is now protruding through your ankle. That trip to the ER? That's between you and your doctor. Put your phone away and don't even think about sharing that picture again. We are trying to eat dinner here.
Stop sharing fake coupons from scammers
No, Little Caesars is not giving away free pizzas for your birthday. That's a scammer who just stole all of your personal information off your page after you took their "survey". Look these things up before you do them. That's what Google is for.
Don't post vague drama
You know exactly what I'm talking about here. The vague status update that is practically begging your friends to ask you what's wrong. If your boyfriend/girlfriend just ran off with a hamster, please just come out and say it if you feel the need. Or, even better, how about keeping this one to yourself?
Don't be someone you're obviously not
I saw you last Thursday at the gas station and I know you don't have ripped abs like Bradley Cooper. So, quit Photoshopping yourself and pretending you do. That Porsche that you took a selfie with? Yeah, that's still at the dealership. Please just get back in your real 1976 Pacer Hatchback and put the phone down.
