Never seen the Alicia one before, but I’m just trying to get my head around it… Alicia lives with her dad and not her mom, but her mom agrees that she should be grounded because her boss can read it… why does Kimberley’s boss have Kimberley’s daughter on Facebook? That’s a bit odd.
Alicia’s mom is just trying to impress her boss, parents, and (assuming) ex-husband: “I wasn’t the more fit parent for custody, but yeah, that girl is grounded for talking such CRAP!”
michelle has daddy issues, deleting the comment is not only the expected action, but the easier one too. It’s one click (oppossed to 3 comments)!
@cabbitch… I love the LOL/lots of love ones, though. I’d like to see more than just the standard ‘someone died… LOL’, though. Much rather see something like; “I ran over your dog… LOL” or “sorry for giving you genital warts… LOL!”
Bizarre. I’ve never been able to read posts of my friends’ friends’ on their facebooks without making the effort of actually GOING to their profile. I can understand the grandparents, or at least a little. But why is el creepo boss keeping tabs on his employee’s daughter? This is concern #1 for me regarding this post.
Concern #2? So mother-missing is attempting to discipline her child for saying “fuck” rather than the light beer she is apparently drinking whilst evidently still being young enough that “you’re grounded” has any effect whatsoever..? I think I would be more concerned about that. Personally. But I am insane.
Nokomis I think the mom is more concerned about how her daughter makes her look than the language. I wouldn’t even use the word “crap” around a kid, although it’s a mild word. She could have put that in a more serious way: “Alicia, your language is unacceptable” rather than a ‘what’s this crap, my boss can read this’ kinda tone.
I’ve never understood why people don’t just delete their post if they didn’t mean to post it, instead of commenting on it and saying “whoops wrong facebook” or “I didn’t meant to say that haha oh how embarrassing.”
Eh. Kids do dumb things all the time. Perhaps this is why the kid is with her dad. The excessive punctuation and shrill tone make the mom come across as an overbearing harpy. I can’t see Mom’s boss being impressed with how she handled the situation. It could end up giving her the unfavorable impression she hoped to avoid in the first place. Or even make it worse.
Not saying that parents should not discipline their kids. But this scenario should have been handled with a PM or a talk with her on the phone or in person, rather than a meltdown in public.
