I will obey most orders, if the person giving the order is a supervisor at work, my priest (who somehow makes it impossible to say no), my father when he was alive and…..that’s about it.
What I flat out refuse to do is obey an order by a Facebook friend.
A lot of people put political and religious views on Facebook. Sometimes I agree with them. Sometimes I “like” them. Occasionally, I share them. But I will NEVER give an Amen on cue. I will NEVER prove that I agree with helping the plight of dogs by clicking “like” and sharing because you said I had to. If you didn’t say I had to, I probably would have. But telling me I have to do click “like” and share if you blah blah blah is a 100% guarantee that I won’t do it.
I’m Roman Catholic, have a devotion to Mary and hope that I carry Jesus in my heart at all times. My personal position is that it might be cool for you if you do, too. But that is your business. But the minute I read a beautiful prayer on Facebook and am then told to type Amen and share if I believe in Jesus?????? So if I don’t do that, then that proves I don’t believe? I want to shout about my constitutional rights.
So that’s my pet peeve. Please allow me to form my own decisions about politics, religion and the condition of pets and the world in general. Don’t TELL me to write something and share or my opinion doesn’t count. And if you think I have control issues, feel free to keep that to yourself 🙂
There. I feel better.
But, of course, if you want to click like and reblog this, I’m not stopping you.
