Good Friday morning friends – and yeah to the short work week for me and my fellow CheapRunners!
This morning Jackson had an appointment for his final brace fitting and pick-up…so off we went to officially turn him into an old man and get his orthotics
The other week when I was out of town on business – Mike had taken Jackson for a mould of his foot to be done
and at the time he also got to pick the colour – rainbow it was. After a little more measuring, some shaving and re-shaping today, it was time for him to try them out
…crazy to think that this “hunk” of plastic was over $1,000
Ah well….c’est la vie…tonight we are off for homework assignment – we have to buy little man some new shoes – and then we go back for a follow-up in another 2 weeks to see how he’s making out.
So my last day of work before I went on holidays – the morning of; we got a really nasty “comment” on my work’s Facebook page…the girl that is in charge of the FB here at work asked me what to do about it – and after a little investigation on my part (looking into the customer etc.) I had discovered that this was not a “real” person at all, and I told our FB girl to remove it…well didn’t that just open the flood gates, and within minutes “friends” of this “fake” girl came out of the woodwork with their choice words and comment posts….needless to say a few hours later I received an email from this girl who’s comment we had removed…finally she had a name.
…but think about this…she went to the trouble of creating a new Facebook page – not under her name, all so that she should sit behind her computer and spew her lies and judgment about us…I mean…who does she think she is?!?!?!
Which really got me thinking about social media these days and all the haters out there in webville…it really irritates me that people think it is there right to sit back and judge others…most of the time people they don’t even know – or will never meet in their life. What gives them the right to put others down and cause self esteem issues, or to tell others how to live their life or to be mean just for the sake of being mean. I realize that haters are gonna hate…but then why do they “follow” you?
I know a few blogger friends have been experiencing this same sort of thing lately and although you want to ignore it – it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t get under your skin a little…well to all those haters I say
End of rant.
So do you ever experience any haters?...what do you do about it?
What are your plans for the weekend?
Tell me one thing I missed while I was away on vacation, and on a social media break?
