Oh, they are those lovely people that like to make negative comments behind the protection of their computer keyboard. They willingly like other pages, then put in their 2 cents whenever they have negative crap to spew.
I had my first experience yesterday with trolls.
I posted this "self-shaming" pic on my facebook page in response to other bloggers doing the same.
It was supposed to be funny. It is fu*&ing funny. End of story.
99% of people viewed it as it was intended to be seen...as a joke. But a few people didn't agree. Whether they posted their opinion on my page, on another person's page, or they shared it because they thought that I sucked so much...the bottom line is that they didn't like my picture.
For my Give Me 5 for Friday, here are 5 comments and my response:
1. This mom is a bitch.
WOW! I will tell you right now that I am most certainly NOT a bitch. But if you question the type of mother I am, well yes, bitch might be a good word to describe me. I am a freakin' awesome mom. I usually don't toot my own horn. But there you have it. I am doing my best...and it seems to be working.
2. Sad, sad, sad.
What is sad is that some parents do not have a sense of humor to deal with parenting issues. I feel bad for them...and their children.
3. This mom is lying to their child.
For crying out loud, REALLY? It was a f*^$ing GRANOLA BAR! The box was on the counter. I thought it was empty so I said they were all gone. Then about 10 minutes later I went to put the box in the recycling bin (See I recycle. Doesn't that score me any points?) and there was one left. Did I tell my daughter? NO. Because I wanted it and I know she would waste the high fiber, chocolate chip Trader Joe's granola bar. So I ate it very quietly. Plus she had already had a whole wheat blueberry waffle and a pear. She will survive.
4. This mother should stop taking pictures and go to the grocery store.
Well...this mother has PLENTY of food for her children. Plus, this mother has a home daycare and provides 2 square meals and 2 snacks a day for SIX children...free of charge (besides the fee that they pay for child care). So F&*K off! Thanks.
5. I feel bad for the child of this mother.
Don't feel bad for her. She is wonderful. She is smart and funny and happy. And I can assure you she will have a freakin' awesome sense of humor when she is older:)
So that's that. I will give trolls NO MORE attention on my blog or facebook page. Zip. Zero. Not a one. From now on, I will ban.
But I have to admit that I did get a kick out of the drama.
Now, TGIF! I need a beer.
