So! Over the past few days, a couple of sticky situations have arisen on my Facebook page.
First off, no, believe me, you ain't missin' nothing. About the only thing I ever post there is pics of whichever foster kittens I'm tending at the time, to try to stir up interest in their adoptions. I also link to stuff on local rescues' sites, blah blah blah, all kittens all the time.
It's like the Crazy Cat Lady's Facebook page.
But! Over the weekend, my boss (yes, that boss, the racist one) sent me a friend request.
Umm ... When your boss wants to "friend" you on Facebook, is there really any way to say no?
yeah, I didn't think so.
And besides, like I said, all I ever post there is kitten pics, so who cares, right?
But! I also received another friend request, from a guy who is "friends" with the woman who runs the rescue for which I volunteer. He sometimes posts kitten pics, blah blah blah, on the rescue's page, so I thought, oh, okay, and accepted the request.
But then I went and checked out his page, and he's this hard-core right-wing nutbag. Like, posting really obnoxious crap complaining about ... well, about stuff that right-wing a**holes complain about. Welfare, "Unamericans", the whole nine yards.
So, I adjusted my settings so that his crap won't show up in my feed. Problem solved!
Except now, he has started commenting on some of the stuff I put up. See again: All kittens, all the time, and all he's commenting is stuff like, "Cute kittens!" or "It must be fun fostering!", but now that I know his politics, I'm just, like, all ... ick.
So I'm just "liking" his comments, without commenting back, and I don't really feel like I should unfriend him, because he's involved with the rescue, but
Facebook. It's complicated.
