We all have those Facebook friends. The types that post ridiculous things about their relationships, “wise” status messages, gross pictures imitating Miley Cyrus and a myriad of other things that make them completely deserving of a lifelong ban from the internet. Unfortunately, there’s no way to lock them out of cyberspace without the FBI having a problem with you. So, here are a few of the types that dominate the internet and how to make them feel uncomfortable enough to stop.
Use gifs. The gifs have the power.
1. The “it’s complicated” girl
Everyone has dealt with this girl at some point. She’s the girl who always goes into rants about her messed-up-but-still-romantic-in-a-special-way relationship. Her relationship status is always going back and forth from “in a relationship” to “it’s complicated,” and constantly whines about how hard it is to be a healthy couple. The next time this girl posts another annoying rant about how difficult “he” is being, your response should look a little something like this:
2. The “religious” one
Not to be judgmental, but we all have at least one fake religious person added on Facebook that likes to post holy scripture quotes, prayers and even advice about how to live in “the lord’s shadow.” Nothing–and I mean nothing–is more irritating than a loud-mouthed hypocrite who likes to tell you all the things you’re doing wrong. So the next time this person posts a status about how they dedicated they are to God, don’t be afraid to hit them with this:
Chances are everyone else is equally sick of this person’s hypocrisy and will like the hell out of your comment. The more people like it, the less this person will be inclined to post that nonsense again. Problem solved.
3. The “selfie” fanatic
This is perhaps one of the most irritating Facebook types. This person posts about 20 photos of themselves every day, and their face is slathered all over your newsfeed 24/7. Want to see what your friends are up to? Well, you can’t. Camera-happy Hannah’s face has taken over, and all you can see are peace signs and kissy faces. There is only one (albeit a tiny bit mean) way to stop the madness:
4. The “wise” one
Then there’s the kid on Facebook who’s all about motivational speaking. He is always posting quotes about taking life by the horns and that nothing is “impossible.” According to him, we are the pilots of our own lives, and if we can “believe” then we can “achieve.” Save it for Zach and Cody, man. No one cares.
You can be fairly straightforward with this one:
How about you try and lick your elbow, buddy? Then tell us nothing’s impossible.
5. The “emotional” one
There’s nothing wrong with letting off some steam once in a while, but there are those Facebook users who take it to a whole new level of “please shut up.” They seem to think that the status update bar is synonymous to “diary.” Well, it’s not. No one wants to read about how this person “gained weight” or “feels ugly today” or “wishes she hadn’t let him go.” You just feel like:
When all else fails, you can always…
You could just do yourself a favor and delete them, but where’s the fun in that?
