WARNING: This is an actual Facebook post. Please stop putting this crap up there.
This morning, Jeff took the time to make my lunch and fix my breakfast of eggs and toast. I also saw a deliberately placed coupon for dancing lessons. I was blessed with a husband who makes me want to be a better person just by being who he is.
1) Stop feeling the need to give everyone this level of detail about what goes on in your everyday life. Stop wasting our time by making us read about what you had for breakfast or what time you arrived at work. Yeah, it may only be about 10 seconds per post per day, but with about 1 billion Facebook users, that time adds up quickly. Life is too short for so many details.
Also, just doing some basic math reveals that most of your “friends” on Facebook don’t care about this level of detail about your day. I’m even willing to bet that most of your acquaintances that happen to like or comment on your post are just going through the motions, which also means they don’t care…
2) Stop putting mushy things like this on Facebook. What is this about? Do you feel the need to prove to the world that you love your significant other? Or do you need to prove to the world that your relationship is a happy and healthy one?
You could argue that I and others who don’t like to read mushy posts on Facebook are just miserable assholes, but let me point out that I LOVE mushiness, when it's done in the right place and at the right time - not on Facebook. There is a time and place for everything, including mushiness.
Stop doing this.
