To Friend or Not To Friend

I have unfriended exactly one person on Facebook.

I just couldn’t take any more rants, soapboxes or tirades, which is all this person seemed able to offer.

So I ranted, got up on my soapbox and had a tirade about it.  And then I unfriended.

Greg, afterward:  Thanks for not unfriending me.

Me:  Why?  Do you say incredibly irritating things?

Greg looked at me pointedly.

Me:  I mean on Facebook.


My husband makes me laugh.

So much for ranting.

Hard to rant when I’m laughing.

ABOUT BETH WOOLSEY I'm a writer. And a mess. And mouthy, brave, and strong. I believe we all belong to each other. I believe in the long way 'round. And I believe, always, in grace in the grime and wonder in the wild of a life lived off course from what was, once, a perfectly good plan.
  1. So, it is good to see that I am not the only one that went onto facebook after reading this to check if we were still friends!

    1. were you as scared as I was? 😉

    2. Uh oh! Started an epidemic! (An epidemic of 2. ;))

      1. you’re really getting a kick out of this, aren’t you? just admit it…

        1. I am! It’s true. You caught me. 🙂

  2. So, can I still rant here on your blog?

    1. Aw, Dave! You’re not a ranter. You’re going to have to work a LOT harder if you want to be a ranter. Just come on over and watch me sometime… that should help. 😉

  3. okay, I’m good… phew, what a relief! would’ve been the worst birthday present ever! speaking of presents btw: you simply cannot imagine the envy of my family&friends after seeing (SEEING IS NOT TOUCHING PEOPLE!!! Keep off the mug, I say ‘KEEP OFF’ 😉 my Dutch Bros mug! Like! Double like! Like-likerdi-like-like! Yay! 🙂

    1. I just realized that the above might classify as ranting too… oh dear… I’m going to bed and hope for the best now 🙁

      1. Hehehe. Didn’t mean to make ya nervous! I assure you, 385 out of 386 friends are not at all irritating.

        SO glad you like the mug! Peace. Love. Dutch.

  4. I’m going to check my FB to see if you’ve unfriended me RIGHT NOW!!!

  5. I’ve unfriended and blocked a # of ppl (so they can’t find me at all). 🙂

    1. I just learned about blocking. I feel like a premature unfriender!
