My Facebook Stalker

I don't know about you, but I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. It is a great time-killer, old friend finder and fun for games, but there is so much about it that I can't stand. Sometimes it is not that great to get in touch with the past, sometimes the people drive you crazy, (see my  post Those Facebook Friends), and then there are the stalkers in your life!!

I know I have a few select people who "stalk" around other people's pages and just sit back and keep quite. I am ok with that. Not all people like to be front and center. But, then what do you do when you get an actual stalker.....and it turns out to be your own Mother!!

If your Mom is on Facebook you will completely understand. She asked me about six months ago to get her signed up. I must admit I wasn't really happy with the thought of having to share "my space" with her. But, over time it seemed ok. Things were going fine until one day she starts grilling me about my weekend. "So, how much fun did you have at that bar this weekend?", "I see you went out with so and so this weekend", "What did your post mean when you said ____".

She is killing me with these comments. She stalks me all weekend and then brings it up every Monday. I feel like I am being spied on all the time. My Mom and I are close and I tell  her just about everything, but Jeez!! Some things are better just left unspoken.

So, is your Mom on Facebook? How do you handle her?



  1. UNFRIEND your mother. Now. Then all this will be gone. See that was simple. You need to tell her though. I'm just saying.

    Have a fabulous day Lydia. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  2. My mom reads my blog..and it's the same thing. Ugh. I hate it. She acts like she knows everything about me because she reads it. :(
