Unfriended someone yesterday on Facebook for being an asshole and within 25 minutes I get a friend request from that person and a note wondering why we aren’t friends.

I say, “wow, that’s weird.”

They respond, “that we aren’t friends anymore?”

I say, “no that you monitor your friends list to see who is friends and who isn’t.” 

They reply, “I check it every 12 hrs”.

And I reply, “that’s why we can’t be friends.” 

Yes, there are programs out there that will tell you who is and who isn’t your friend on Facebook. I even dabbled using one. Didn’t like it. It was so distracting. I don’t need to know nor do I care to to get a report who is or isn’t on my friends list. I suppose some want to know. But honestly, if the person isn’t a client, hasn’t spoken to you in real life ever or isn’t a friend or relative then does it really matter? 

Maybe monitoring that list once a month I can see. But to monitor that list twice a day is a bit ridiculous. That borders on stalker-ish behavior. And ain’t nobody got time for that. 

Say adios to people who post hateful stuff on social media, who post disparaging things about others (especially religious or political figures) and who continuously post ignorant things in hopes of causing a reaction in people. Say goodbye to the toxicity.
