Does anyone else deal with stuff like this in their FB feeds?
This dude showed up on my FB feed, as a re-post from a “friend.” I don’t know him, really. Met him once or twice, we have the same employer but different locations. His cat is sick, has been sick for a few weeks. Diagnosed today with inoperable, untreatable, metastasized cancer.
He posted a picture of himself crying.
OMFG give me a break. Yes, it’s heartbreaking. Yes, I’ve gone through it with two of my own cats, with a third going through illness right now. I’ve posted good-bye statuses and that was it. Yes, everyone handles their grief in different ways, but seriously, how is posting a pic of yourself in tears anything but narcissistic? Who does this? I feel bad for his situation and for his poor cat, but jeez, what a tool.
Seemed too weak to Pit, and can’t vent at work or FB, so I threw it down here.
