    That is called emotional blackmail, isn’t it?

    Yeah! You tell ’em! The true measure of a mover and shaker is how much a person can clutter up their friends’ Facebook feeds with “Share this and heal the world” pictures!

    *Grumble, grumble* Selfish people doing actual activism and donating actual money to charity *grumble, grumble*

    Yup. That’s the way to world peace. But, cute as they are, puppies cause their own problems. Family discord (who has to walk him through TODAY’s blizzard, for example.)

  12. Peg, being that I think I was the lone miserable bastard mentioned above, I have decided to mend my ways. I just posted your plea to my Facebook page. Gee… I’m feeling better already! I highly recommend this to everyone, and you’ll feel a lot less guilty too. Not to mention Peg won’t blame you.

    Maybe we could all do something concrete like smile more to help make the world a nicer place.

    oops-is this sarcasm on your part?

    • pegoleg says:

      It is. I’m tired, not of the Facebook posts that are sweet or make us think, but so many come with a “repost or else” threat. I also suspect that many people think posting that stuff is the same as real action.

      Your suggestion to smile is much more useful.

  22. Wonder how many are going to slam your post due to lack of understanding sarcasm.
    I really get turned off when you’re threatened to “post 100 times” if you’re a real friend. Meh.

    It’s a beautiful message, but it has that email chain letter feel to it. The thing that throws me is it’s so positive and then accuses friends and ends with bastards. It’s gotta be a joke, right?

        Only if one has not seen your other posts, Peg. In the context of this whole blog you could not mean this for serious. So when I saw your single NO to the “emotional blackmail” lure put out I knew you were not for serious or you would have “burned” me instead.

          Exactly – you get me.

          I’m trying to be funny, but sarcasm that hurts people is not a place I want to go. Susie has a very tender and generous heart so I’m glad to have her input so I can keep myself from going over that line.

  28. Whenever someone posts the idiotic thing where you are supposed to type in one word describing where our how we meet, I try to write “rehab” whenever possible.

    I don’t ever get “I know which ones of you won’t post this” part. I won’t. If you already know, why bother the 98% and not just message 2% “will-post”-ers directly? Then they forward this to 2% of their friends, until this quietly dies.

    P.S. I think puppies are overrated.

      That’s the part that bugs me. The inspiring stuff I can take or leave. It’s the “I bet you won’t post” stuff. If you know it, save us all some time and don’t bother!

    All this needs is muzak that starts playing the moment you click/scroll over. And maybe some sort of suggestion that you could win something by sharing to additional social media. As long as you hash tag it appropriately #worldpeaceforall #icare #doyourpartbastards etc.

    LOL! I despise those “I know 98% of my friends won’t re-post this” posts. If I’m reading a post and I like it, I may be thinking, “This is nice, I’m going to share this.” But as soon as I see that, “I know who you are” crap, I say “forget this.” Don’t try to guilt me into posting your stupid meme! 🙂

    FB should leave real world stuff to Twitter, wanna-be world stuff to WordPress, and stick to puppies and kitties post sharing and who’s dating who instead. The world would be a better (and more organized) place if everyone would just mind their own corners. I don’t want real world stuff ruining my puppies videos!

  39. Haha, yes, these drive me nuts! Especially the “I think I know the ones who will” stuff, I always think – yeah, I know the ones who will too! Also, what’s with the whole “Post this for one hour” thing? Who posts stuff on Facebook for one hour and then takes it off? And what’s the point of that? Most of their Facebook friends probably won’t happen to have been on in that hour and seen it! And what is the meaning of life anyway? And why do people sit in the Quiet Zone on trains and then talk loudly on their phones? And puppies and kittens.
