Biting My Virtual Tongue V2

A while back I did a post about facebook statuses i would never actually post. Here are some COMMENTS that I'm tempted to make... but won't:

-Just how much television DO you watch?

-How can you be stupid enough to believe that rumor? Have you never fact checked anything in your life?

-Do you realize that every picture you post of your toddler shows him watching TV?

-If you're going to put your political opinions out there for all of your friends to read, don't be so darn upset when someone disagrees with you. Sure, it's your wall and you can say what you want. But once you've put it out there you've opened yourself up for someone to disagree with you.

-If you don't care to hear from anyone who disagrees with you just unfriend all of your friends of a different political persuasion and tune solely in to your biased news programs that will never challenge your long held understanding of how the world works.

-Another "witty" status shuffle post? Yawn.

-It's really not cool to talk badly about "some people" whom you leave unnamed via a status update. Talk to them if you have an issue. Don't make it an issue on Facebook.

-You "like" THAT? Really??? Why????

What about you? What comments have you held back?

I've been particularly irritated by the "status shuffle" posts, too. (What is the point? Don't you have anything of your own to say?)

Oh, I know what I have thought but wouldn't write: "Can't you spell? Can you not write a grammatical sentence? Aren't you an elementary school teacher? The next generation is learning from you. We are doomed."

Alejna said it! Especially the grammar bit.
'Cripes, your poor kid!'
'You're boring me out of existance!'

None of these, of course, would ever apply to thee or me. :-D

Speaking of holding my tongue...I had to delete my last post because I didn't want anyone to accidentally stumble across it. LOL.

I often hold my tongue about medical misinformation that people get all hot and bothered over without there being any scientific fact to it.

I've held back my true feelings of Lionel Richie's music.

And now I'm paying the price.

I can't look at FB anymore without thinking about a post by Cheeseboy a few months back. He imagined if everyone talked like they do on their statuses.Still cracks me up.

I actually bite my virtual tongue daily when a friend's husband goes on and on about his troubles and I see her IRL trying to hold the family together. I wish there was a button for "slap upside the head" next to the like button.
