Well, when I say over, I mean that the ritual present giving and over eating is finally coming to an end. It’s been a reasonable time. Nothing spectacular, but then I don’t like Christmas, spectacular or otherwise. I’ll not go into the reasons at this time. I will leave that for another day. So rather than wait until the New Years, I’ll do a “Quick Review” now!
- We survived last New Year Eve
- I was notified that I was part of another workplace review
- I got a new smart phone
- We got a new family car
- S**** got a new phone (same as mine)
- Was told ‘You were always going to get this job….’
- Heard that we are to be ‘slotted in’ to the new roles as part of the review
- S**** got a new job
- S**** got a new girlfriend
- I got a new car
- S**** got a new car (same as mine)
- We survived Christmas
So that was the ‘12 Days Of 2013’ In the grand scheme of things, not a lot happened really.
This is just a brief post.
For the second time this year, I have taken the drastic step to ‘deactivate’ my Facebook account. I can hear it now … ’you’ve done what?’ …… ‘why did you do that?’ …… ‘are you mad?’ and many other statements from people who are shocked at my decision. It is a decision not taken lightly, I can assure you. It took me all of ten minutes. To be honest, Facebook has become, for me, too unusable. Gone are the days when when my ‘timeline’ (what a stupid word) was all in the order that people posted their ‘status’s. Now everything is mixed up and it has become far too confusing.
Then, there are the stupid game requests! As soon as you block one, then someone else sends another. I don’t play Facebook games. I even had it on my ‘about’ page, but nobody took any notice. Then there are the messages !! What can I say? If you want to talk to me, then use the phone!!!!! If you have not got my number, email me!!
So for now, I will stick with Twitter and LinkedIn ….. I do not need the rubbish that Facebook has become.
Here endeth the ‘Rant Of The Day’ thank you for your understanding.
