The Mysterious Case of the Former Friends

Leave a comment

Today is the 12th anniversary of Facebook.

 

This makes it the perfect day to discuss the disappearance of 2 people from my friends on Facebook.  Let me say that I knew both of these people in person and quite honestly I have no idea why either of them decided to unfriend me.

 

Unlike other posts, I will not disguise their names as I feel it is better to expose them for what they are rather than protect them.  People who leave without any explanation don’t deserve any protection as far as I am concerned.

 

First up is Norma Jean.  I have known her for over 30 years, actually since junior high school.  I was never overly friendly with Norma Jean as we had different circles of friends.  My friends were a cross section of jocks and smart people for the most part.  Her friends were more of the lower class bunch.  She hung around the bullies and troublemakers.

 

For the most part, I tried hard to stay away from these people as they were always getting into trouble and most had nothing to do with me.  Unfortunately, there were a couple of times where I ended up in classes with some of these lower lives along with Norma Jean herself.

 

After high school, I (thankfully) lost track of everyone from my graduation class.  When I came onto Facebook in mid-2006, Norma Jean became one of the early people who wished to friend me.  Reluctantly, I accepted her friend request as I thought that after so many years, people would have changed and matured, but with people like her, I was mistaken.

 

While I did have a couple of online comment sessions with her, I always felt that she really was not interested in anything I said.  So I believe out of boredom, she decided to unfriend me.  A few months later, I confronted her online in a mutual friend’s post as to why she unfriended me.  She seemed to blow it off and didn’t give me an answer.  Apparently, she has not changed in over 30 years. I have declined to friend a couple of people from high school as I felt that those people would unfriend me as well because they were part of the same bullying group.

 

However, the most bizarre unfriending happened over the past week, with my now apparent former friend Bridget.  She and I became friends while we both worked at Staples.

 

During her time at Staples, it was apparent that Bridget had social problems.  She never really seemed to get along with many of the associates, managers and most importantly the customers.  It was this type of attitude that made her be called into the manager’s office for one of their “little talks”.  These talks never really seemed to help and she seemed to always get a little meaner and ruder with each passing day.

 

I am not saying that she overall was a bad person; we always seemed to get along as we both had similar feelings toward people in general.  She always seemed like a rollercoaster of emotions, one minute happy the next angry and the following giggly.  Overall, she was rude to people as she did not seem to have the words “please” or “thank you” in her vocabulary.

 

I think this type of disrespect has more to do with her upbringing, sort of like how Norma Jean treated me.  Unfortunately this type of rudeness continued when she became one of the earliest people to friend me on Facebook.

 

Rarely did I ever make a comment to any of her postings, but when I did I was either ignored or never acknowledged for it.  For someone who was a friend of mine at work, I really thought that she would have a little more respect, but apparently I was very wrong.

 

Everything seemed to be fine, up until this last week when surprisingly decided to unfriend me.  I have absolutely no idea why she unfriended me as I have not had any conversations with her online in weeks.  So this was certainly a headscratcher at best.

 

I will probably never find out the true reason why either of these women unfriended me, but all indications point to the fact that both shared a common rudeness, which is not the type of indication of what a real friend is.

 

Overall, let me point out that I found out about these people unfriending me by using a plugin to the Chrome browser (also available for Firefox as well).  Without using a tool like this, both of these women could have remained anonymous in their unfriending of me.

 

But in the world of the internet, you can run but can never hide.

 

Maybe both of these rude people should go and hide forever if they have no respect for me anymore.

New Year, Old Problems?

Leave a comment

Well, here we are at 2015.

 

Did you notice any REAL differences from the year that past?

 

If you answered no, then you came to the right place.

 

If you answered yes, then you really came to the right place.

 

First off, let me say that this post is being placed into both of my blogs as I am only writing one year-end summary this year instead of two.

 

For those of you who read the annual report that I posted last week while I was off, let me say that I am more than disappointed by the results.

 

On the “Staples” and “Rants” blog, it seemed that more people were interested in my relationship with Tanya going south rather than most everything else.  It was sad that she decided to block me from all social media after her marriage.  Apparently, she never really cared about me whatsoever.  I am not the least bit surprised by that at all.

 

Both blogs also saw a lackluster number of comments to each.  Even though I limited the period for comments to 30 days after a post has been made, it still seems that I should have received more comments than I did.  Maybe it was because some people decided not to post rude comments as they knew they would be deleted anyway.

 

For all the bad things that my report stated, I am proud that the blogs continue to gain followers.  Granted the numbers are not huge yet, but I really would like to see the number close to 100 followers by this time next year.

 

Now onto the breakdown of each blog:

 

First we have the “Staples” blog.

 

The biggest topic of the year without a doubt was hacking.  I predicted the Staples hack about a year ago and by year’s end, Staples finally admitted that it was indeed hacked into.  However, their claim is that only about 115 stores were affected and a little over a million customers were affected.  I believe that Staples will eventually come clean with the real numbers as I believe that this was indeed a full company wide hack job.

 

I expect that hacking will continue to be a major topic in 2015 as companies will continue to do stupid things that will allow hackers to do their dirty duty.  With hacks such as the celebrity hacks and the Sony hack is only the beginning of something much bigger that will happen.  I really hate the idea of having to report this stuff as it just gets to be monotonous and just gets to be downright boring.

 

Besides the ongoing hacking scandals, I plan on discussing other topics as well.  My upcoming calendar includes (subject to change):

  • The continued decline of RadioShack.
  • The Night That Changed Everything.
  • org – Good Idea or Agenda driven.
  • Charity begins at home.

 

Along with these topics, I plan to continue my own story of my decline with the Staples Company.  After all, that was what this blog was originally set up as.  I don’t think I have actually strayed from my original goal, I just have taken many detours along the way and made several stops through this journey.  I am a long way from the end as if to say that there will actually be an end.

 

Now onto the “Rants” blog:

 

The major part of the blog this last year was dedicated to the continued decline of the Time Warner Cable service and how their so-called upgrades have caused more harm than good.

 

Certainly the political scene is scarred nationally and here in Maine by the onslaught of the republicans winning both the governorship again and taking control of the US Senate and the US House.

 

Probably the most popular topic of the year was my discussion of why I didn’t attend my high school reunion.  My belief is that some people can relate to what I am talking about and therefore I am continuing my story with a few more parts this year.

 

Television also was a topic of interest as well.  Some shows were complete failures while others have shined brightly.  Amongst my favorites are “Gotham”, the pre-Batman series and as I have mentioned before my absolute favorite show “Girl Meets World”.  This show blew me away with the Christmas episode reunion.  This is the way to do a reunion show and if you liked the older “Boy Meets World” series, the Christmas episode is a definite must-see.

 

I am less excited for the series “The Flash” as this show seems like it hasn’t completely broken away from the shadow of its birthmother of “Arrow”.  The crossover episodes were fun but the Flash may become a flash in the pan if the show doesn’t get more interesting.  They certainly have the villains from the comic books, but this show reminds me of the campy 1960’s Batman series.

 

Speaking of that series, it finally got its video release in 2014 in somewhat of grand style.  While this nearly $200 Blu-ray box set contains all 120 episodes and other special treats, it still is missing some episode content.  I still recommend this limited edition set despite its flaws.  A cheaper DVD box set also exists without all the extra products, but I still would ante for the better set while it is available.

 

So what is in store for 2015?  Here is a brief rundown of my possible topics:

 

  • The continuing story of why I didn’t attend my high school reunion.
  • TV Hits and Misses of the Season.
  • The biggest obituary of 2014 that was not reported.
  • Tag, Like, Share: A Dumb User’s Guide to Facebook failures.

 

Overall, 2014 saw its share of hatred against me.  From one person who wrote that I was a bad person and then stupidly liking that statement to the people who decided to unfriend me on Facebook and then not even having a logical reason why, this last year was a year of idiots showing their true colors.

 

I expect a better reception this year as things should get clearer in some aspects of my continuing drama and the drama of the rest of the world.

 

Speaking of getting clearer, next post will have my annual predictions as I once again bring out the crystal ball and look back on how I did last year and make new predictions for the year.  After that, the two blogs will hopefully separate into their own stories for most of the year.  I continue to plan on writing each blog on alternating weeks with the next post to be next week to both blogs.

 

Until next time, enjoy 2015.

 

 

 

 

Bad or Worse

Leave a comment

Writer’s note:  This week’s post is being presented in all my blogs as I feel that the information is important enough to be told to all audiences.

 

All right class.

 

This week’s word is bad.

 

It is such a simple 3 letter word.

 

However its meaning is quite vast.

 

It could mean defective.  It could mean evil.  It could mean awful.  It could mean any number of things.

 

Back in the 1980’s Michael Jackson sang about “being bad”.

 

Back then, Jessica Rabbit stated that “she wasn’t bad, she was drawn that way”.

 

Last weekend on Facebook, a friend of mine stated that they thought they were a “bad person” because they had no father figure in her life and she was going to spend Father’s Day with her daughter.

 

To me, this is certainly not the making of a “bad person”, but to some people they like to jump to conclusions with little or no evidence.  I will get back to that in a bit.

 

But first, let me rewind time back to last Wednesday, June 11.  That day everything seemed normal as I had just put my weekly blog posts online and was done for the day.  I decided to do my normal checking in on my ex Tanya on Facebook as I normally do.  Granted I had never friended her nor did really ever intend to, but I am still curious about her post-wedding life.  For those who read my open letter to her a couple of weeks ago would realize that she still holds a special place with me despite being married to someone else.  There seemed to be nothing new on her page or her husband’s, as I regularly checked his too after they got engaged.

 

So I closed down and called it a day.

 

Then came Thursday June 12 and well let’s just say something was very wrong.

 

My first thing that I normally do is check my Twitter account.  I usually check to see if I have any new followers or lost any old ones.  I had noticed that a couple of people who I had followed seemed to have disappeared.

 

So just for the heck of it, I checked Tanya’s profile and noticed that she had 1 less followers.  Granted, she has never tweeted anything so following her may seem counterproductive.  When I checked her list of followers, I noticed that I (yes, me) was no longer a follower of hers.

I had wondered what happened.

 

So I decided to try to re-follow her.

 

Apparently that was NOT going to happen as she appeared to have blocked me on Twitter.  I, then decided to check her husband’s account as well.  Even though I never followed him, I was blocked there as well when I tried to follow him.

 

Ok, this is not good.  Not good at all.

 

So then I decided to go to my Facebook account.

 

I did a search on her and her page did not come up.  I tried typing in the URL that would lead directly to her page and got a “page not found” message.  I then repeated the same thing with her husband and received the same result.

 

At this point, I decided to log into my alternative Facebook account where I am not under my name, and low and behold BOTH of their Facebook accounts were there in all their glory.

 

So now it was quite apparent.

 

I was blocked not only by her, but by her husband as well, somebody who has never met me, seen me, or know anything about me at all.

 

So here I was blocked on both Facebook and Twitter by both of them with no real justification.

 

At this point, I was shocked and wrote a quick post on Facebook stating that feeling.

 

Before I get into the response to that, let me just say that I really don’t know what made Tanya to block me.  The only thing I would think is that somehow she might have gotten wind of my open letter and somehow might have been offended or angered by it.  While I don’t believe that I said anything offensive, she decided that it was best to slam the door on me on as much social media as possible.  To add her husband to this blocking made me think that she must be angrier at me for reasons unknown to me.  In some ways, I really wish I could turn back the clock and apologize to her for everything that went wrong even though it wasn’t totally my fault.

 

Now for the response on Facebook I received.

 

First I am going to call this female responder Janie as to protect her identity.

 

Janie and I had gone to high school together and really were never that close, however like many others from high school she friended me on Facebook about a year or so ago.

 

Janie usually spoke her mind and while sometimes mean-spirited, she was rarely ever offensive.  That was until this most current posting, which did bother me somewhat.

 

While her remarks are only 5 lines long, they speak volumes on feelings that really should not exist at all.  In one recent message to me, she stated that she “was not my enemy”.  I will leave it up to you, dear readers to decide the fate of that statement.

 

So here we go:

 

Her first sentence is “I’m sorry to know how depressed you are”.  I see nothing wrong with that statement at all.

 

Sentence 2 is “No one deserves to feel that way”.  So far nothing wrong with that statement either.

 

Sentence 3 is “I’m sure you are a bad person.”  Just as the train was rolling smoothly down the tracks we now have this huge derailment.  Honestly, where does this sentence follow the first 2 especially when she said just a few weeks earlier that she was “not my enemy”?  This sounds like a HUGE contradiction to me.  What does she mean by a bad person?  Maybe the next sentence might give us a clue.

 

Sentence 4 is “After just having read some of your last blogs, I think your view of the world is rather narrow.”  Ok, you have read only SOME of my blogs and you think I am a bad person because of it?  Of course, Janie doesn’t say which blogs she finds me narrow-minded on, therefore her theory falls flat with zero proof.

 

Sentence 5 is “Have you had a thorough medical check up?”  Now unless Janie has a medical degree, this statement is way out-of-place and certainly uncalled for.  However, let me set the record straight, mentally I am absolutely fine, physically walking and standing is an issue and has been since before I lost my job over 5 years ago.  Beyond that nothing about my health should even be discussed.

 

Sentence 6 is “Are you (sic) parents aware of how you’re feeling?”  Is she serious?  I am well over 21 and this just goes beyond absurd.  Again this statement holds no value as Janie doesn’t hold a medical degree so it is not her place to make type of diagnosis.

 

Finally, sentence 7 is “I believe there are ways to hear (sic) yourself so that you can feel better.”  What does this even mean?  It makes no sense whatsoever.

 

Overall, I was quite offended by Janie’s posting.  However, I decided not to either unfriend or block her as I feel that would really be the wrong thing to do.  I feel that I have a lot to say that would benefit her as would fellow readers.  Unfortunately, none of the sentences that Janie stated followed any of the others.  No proof of any problems were given, which presented a non-existent case on her behalf.

 

It is ironic that some of the same things that Janie brought up were some of the same conversations that I used to have with Tanya during her employment with me.  However, in Tanya’s case, she talked more of her own problems and how we had similar problems and how we could solve our problems together.

 

Yet, in the end, Tanya ended up blocking me from her existence and turned her back on me.  Hopefully, Janie doesn’t end up the same way.  I think she is smarter than that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Odds and Ends

Leave a comment

This week I am going to be doing short little bursts of different topics.  Consider these to be updates to past postings.

 

In my “Enough About Me, Let’s Talk About Me” post, I discussed the former high school classmate that wanted to be part of the graduation ceremonies.  Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your outlook), this person was allowed to participate with others at the graduation.  While the person didn’t march, they were allowed to sit on stage with the superintendent and principal, making it seem that they got special treatment.  I believe that the superintendent caved into the pressure of the outpouring of support for them.  I don’t believe that this person should ever have been special treatment especially given that people who graduate with a GED in the past have never been part of the real high school graduates.  Shame on the superintendent and shame on my fellow classmates for allowing this thing to happen, I really expected better from everyone.

 

In my “Good to Be Dead” post, I discussed that the site logmein.com was no longer had a free version.  Well, after doing much checking and research I decided to go with the program TeamViewer.  Honestly, I found that this program installed fairly easy on both my Windows 7 and XP machines.  After telling each installation about the other machine, I was up and running in a matter of minutes.  Best thing of all, unlike my previous program, I was not disconnected as I had been in a matter of inactivity.  Everything was smooth and I am very happy with my new program.  Note, however, that this program is free only for non-commercial use like as I am doing.  I highly recommend this program.

 

In my “Time Warner Cable Kicks Standard Definition to the Curb?” post, I discussed that TWC had changed many of their channels to the HD format on their low numbers.  I also mentioned that I did not have AutoHD enabled.  Well, apparently TWC had decided to kill and remove the AutoHD feature once and for all.  When they changed over to the new program lineup, the AutoHD option was no longer needed or required.  However, the problems still remain with their HD channels and a new one has cropped up.  When some channels are set up for recording that has both a channel below 100 and one above 100, sometimes it shows up as recording on 2 different channels even though only one recording was ever set up.  This is usually only noticed when setting up a second (or third, so the DVR box thinks) at the same time.  Hopefully, TWC will fix this bug soon as it is yet another annoying bug.

 

Just a reminder, comments are always appreciated and certainly liking any of my posts are always appreciated as well.  I hope that this update closes some of my past posts, yet may open myself up to future updates on this posting.

 

 

Enough About Me, Let’s Talk About Me

3 Comments

Last week, I celebrated my birthday.

 

You probably didn’t know it either.

 

In fact, out of my nearly 800 Facebook friends, I received a paltry 10 birthday wishes.

 

Now, I don’t know if I should really be angry about this or just frustrated at this.

 

What bothers me is that some people who had given me wishes in the past were nowhere to be found this year.  I don’t know if they were angry at me because I never recognized their birthday or they were just self-absorbed in themselves.

 

Yes, I said that.

 

People have been so self-absorbed with themselves that they can’t get out of their own way.

 

I like to call these people “self-centered” as they care only about themselves.

 

I have seen a lot of that lately.

 

Now before I begin some of you may consider that I was that way with my last post, when I wrote an open letter to my now-married now-I-guess-ex-girlfriend.  In some ways, I have to agree to that, but those of you who know me would know that I really am not this way in real life.

 

Now onto my real life examples of the self-centered people:

 

Example 1:

 

Most everyone on Facebook is self-centered.  Whether you make a post about your new baby, your body building techniques, or what you are having for dinner, you are telling me things that I really don’t care about.  The biggest offenders of this are the so-called “celebrity” friends that I have that post endless pictures of them and have no social interaction with anyone.  Certainly, narcissism is alive on Facebook.

 

 

Example 2:

 

In the last few weeks, a former high school class member graduated from a local adult education school and received their GED.  What is disturbing about this is that the person wanted to participate in the city’s graduation ceremonies to make it look like they were a real graduate.  This person was encouraging the fellow former class members to contact the superintendent to have the policy altered to allow for the person to attend the regular ceremonies.  This person said that they will go to the media if he doesn’t get his way.  Personally, I am outraged over this as I don’t believe that any policy should ever be changed just to satisfy one person.  Of course, I would not post it in the Facebook group’s page as it would definitely get deleted very quickly.

 

Example 3:

 

Too many times lately, people have not been paying attention when either entering or leaving a particular doorway.  It don’t matter what doorway, it could be any doorway.  The fact that people don’t realize that somebody is behind them and either don’t look or don’t care to look so the door goes flying into my face.  I see this almost everywhere I go that doesn’t have automatic doors.  Are people who self-centered that they don’t care of what they are doing?

 

Example 4:

 

Yes, we know that you should not text and drive.  However, what about the reverse?  Lately, I have seen a lot of people using their little cellphones and NOT looking where they are going sometimes walking right out in traffic causing people like me to slam on their brakes to avoid hitting them.  As I mentioned in a previous post, this sort of thing of not paying attention while walking causes problems, some causing injury.  I think that these people should stop being so self-centered and put down their phones and pay attention to their surroundings especially when walking in traffic.

 

Example 5:

 

Last Sunday, I posted on Facebook that I was experiencing the saddest day of my life.  Only 4 of my friends inquired what was wrong and a fifth liked this status (seriously liking a sad status, do these people even pay attention to what is written?).  When I explained what was wrong, NONE of them commented any further or showed any sympathy to my distress.  Apparently, they were all self-centered to care.  Ironically out of these 4 people, only 2 gave me birthday wishes a couple of days earlier.  Again, I am not angry just disgusted by the lack of respect of my friends.  This is self-centered behavior at its finest.

 

 

Overall, I hope that these examples have brought to light the fact that people have become more and more self-centered and less social to others.  People have become more self-absorbed and show absolutely no emotion or feelings to others under any circumstance.

 

I believe this has to change or our society is doomed to be a bunch of self-centered people.  I would like to think that I am wrong about that.

 

 

 

Why I Didn’t Attend My High School Reunion (Part 2)

2 Comments

Writer’s note:  This is the second part in a series as to the reasons why I didn’t attend my high school reunion.  While the information is true, it still may offend some people.  Reader discretion is advised.

 

The high school yearbook.

 

This is the book that is supposed to bring back memories of what happened over the past year of one’s existence in school.  In fact, as I have mentioned in a previous post, my senior high school picture is my profile picture of all my connections on the internet.

 

Not that I am really happy about that picture, much less my existence during my senior year.  Except for the one picture in the book, I am really nowhere to be found.

 

At least that was the way it was for the first 2 years of high school.

 

This story begins during my sophomore of high school.  Actually, this is the first year that I was physically in the high school.

 

At that time, the grades of 7-9 were in junior high and 10-12 were in the high school.

 

When I got to the 10th grade, I started a significant number of computer classes.  Not only that but I was spending as much time as possible after school in the computer lab.  It was not uncommon for me to stay afterschool everyday whether I needed to or not.

 

All this time, I spent in the computer lab caught the attention of the business teacher head, Marshall Sawtelle.  If ever there was somebody who was a teacher’s pet, I was it.  I spent so much time with him that at one point, it seemed that I was a member of his family.  Actually, I met his family at one time and after his passing, his wife said that he always talked about me even years after I left school.

 

Anyway, he asked if I wanted to take control of the billing of yearbook advertising.  It seemed that I wasn’t really asked, but instead forced to do it.  At least, that is how I saw it.

 

For those of you who don’t know what yearbook advertising is, they are ads placed in the back of the yearbook to promote their businesses and to congratulate the current graduating class.  Most importantly, without these ads, the price of the yearbook would be significantly more.  Sometimes it took several times of sending out bills before the advertiser would pay their statement.  This actually was a very important job and I had to keep on top of it to make sure everything kept running smoothly.  So, actually, I was a member of the yearbook club.

 

Or so I thought.

 

When I went to attend my first meeting, I was greeted with hostility.  I tried to explain my job function, but those who were part of this group refused to listen and asked me to leave.  Apparently, under NO condition was I ever welcome to this group even though I was heading up the billing.

 

When I explained the situation to Mr. Sawtelle, he was exasperated that they would do such a thing.  I also explained the same thing to both an assistant principal and the actual principal with no result.  It was apparent that the administration cared nothing about the groups at the school or whoever attended them.

 

I never tried to return to another one of their meetings ever again because I just didn’t want to get embarrassed by the whole situation.

 

However, the group’s hatred toward me didn’t end there.

 

It was too late to get my name on the acknowledgement page during my first year.  However, apparently my name was supposed to be in the yearbook during my junior year, but was edited out by the yearbook group.

 

However, this did not sit well with Mr. Sawtelle.  Rarely did I ever see him not be his jolly self, but this time his buttons were pushed and he decided to do something about it.

 

So as my name was deleted in the senior year as it was in the junior year, Mr. Sawtelle got his revenge by putting my name back into the page at the bottom right before the final copy was sent off to the printer.  Of course, he and I were both happy with the acknowledgement and the yearbook group was not happy.

 

In fact, despite revenge being sweet, those people who were part of the yearbook group continued their hatred of me for what would be the remainder of the school year, which would also be graduation day.

 

I think many of these same people still hate me right up to this date for my name being featured on the yearbook acknowledgement page.

 

At least one person appreciated all the work I did and made sure I finally got the credit I deserved no matter what others thought.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why I Didn’t Attend My High School Reunion (Part 1)

2 Comments

Writer’s note:  This is the first part in a series as to the reasons why I didn’t attend my high school reunion.  While the information is true, it still may offend some people.  Reader discretion is advised.

Bullying.

This is the core of the problem of the reason why I never attended my high school reunion last summer.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I was bullied during my entire high school existence right through the present.  Everything that had happened over the years reflect on that one idea.

Certainly while there is more awareness of the problem, it will never go away because administrators care more about protecting their unions rather than helping the students.  Nothing has changed since I went to high school all those years ago.

Now let me start the story.

Let me begin by starting at the end.  Normally nobody would start a story at the end, but this one sounds better starting that way.

Shortly after the reunion took place last summer, there were quite a few pictures that were posted on the special Facebook group page that was established just for our graduating class.

The biggest problem with these pictures is that every one of them I could not identify who was in the picture.  Since there was no tagging of people in the pictures, I had absolutely no clue who any of the people were.  It was quite obvious that of the 75 or so people who attended the event that the pictures only had a small percentage of them in the pictures.  It seemed that only the popular people made the pictures, which was also the way that pictures in the yearbooks also were handled.

Why would I ever go to any reunion when I would probably get ignored and never get in any of the pictures?  To make matters worse, since this event occurred on an island, I had no intention of ever making that boat trip to it.

Now about that Facebook group page.  I wasn’t invited to it.  I was dragged into it kicking and screaming.  Ok, maybe not dragged into it, but I was still thrown into it.

The bad thing about this group is that the people who run it hate me.  Not just a little hatred but the kind that would make executions look enjoyable.  Everything I have written on the page has been deleted by the group because apparently they don’t like what I have to say.   Don’t they realize that they are violating my 1st amendment rights of free speech?  I guess that they just don’t care about me or what I have to say.

Of course, most of those in this group are friends with each other, but not with me.  This was the same sort of treatment that existed during my entire high school life.  Maybe this group feels a sense of completeness by having me part of it even though they don’t make me feel welcome.  I don’t know why I just don’t leave this group and just ignore them once and for all.  Of course, given that this is Facebook, hatred is widespread on the site.

And we all know that hatred is really just part of the bullying picture.  Therefore, the group is promoting hatred and bullying just like they did back all those years ago.

Some people never change.  In this case, it seems that most people never change.

Ever.
