Sooo, today I found out I have been officially "unfriended" by someone on Facebook. This is the first time this ever happened, because I don't accept friend requests from random people I don't know. Suffice it to say, this was someone I have known for years, and once liked and respected. All that changed however, (for both of us I guess) in the past forty-eight hours.
Here's the deal....the person who unfriended me was dating a very close friend's son. For some inane reason, she decided to post some very unflattering things about him and his family, all over FB. Not the smartest move. Honestly, maybe she wanted to end their relationship or maybe she was completely wasted. Maybe, she is just really, truly that dumb. Because the things she posted were NOT ok. Not only did she choose to slam him, but to add in his momma and his sisters? WHAT was she thinking?
Of course, as soon as I saw it, I had to call my friend and tell her. And I wasn't the only one who saw that crap and called her. Making that call, was a no brainer, for me. I felt I owed it to my friend, to make sure she knew the truth of how this person really felt about her family. I lost any and all respect I had for her, the minute she posted that lunacy online. I guess she lost any and all respect she had for me, when I made that call.
So, I have to ask, what would you have done? Would you have made that call, immediately alerting your friend, or would you have minded your own business, and stayed out of it? Maybe you would have waited, just to see how it all panned out? Let me know, I'm curious which of you would have been "unfriended" too.
