I find I'm becoming less and less tolerant of drivel I hear from people, particularly on Facebook.
This morning, it was "On this day, 21 years ago, heaven gained a new star... I MISS YOU MUM! The pain is greater than ever... :("
For starters, since when did facebook become a portal for speaking to the dead. Secondly, it was 21 years ago... Isn't it about time you pulled yourself together??
Anyway, it seems to take more and more will power not to post an inappropriate comment, I've even found myself - in moments of weakness - clicking the "like" button when I see this mawkish emotional diarrhea.
I fear it's only a matter of time before my inner sociopath overwhelms any self-restraint I might have. Apart from deleting facebook; or having a purge of all the bed-wetting professional grievers, how can I become more tolerant of this sort of crap???
