*Rant* Controlling People!
I don't know about anyone else, but I really can't stand it when people try to control other people.
Maybe I'm hyper-sensitive to it because I was once in a (unwanted) "relationship", if it could even be called that since it was entirely one-sided, with a guy I wanted nothing to do with, who was practically a stalker and who tried to control me to the nth degree. But my mother liked him because he knew how to turn on the charm around her, so she kept having him come around. *Shudder*
But that was years ago, and thankfully that is long over. What got me going now is that I'm friends with someone on Facebook who, nearly every day, posts things that she wants all of her friends to share and pass on- like stuff about animal abuse or other such things. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but she pushes all the guilt buttons if you don't do her bidding: if you don't share, you have no heart. If you don't share, you're not human. If you don't share, you care about nothing...and on and on.
Frankly, I don't like someone telling me what to pass along to others or to post on my own page. I tried it once, and got no response anyway. This seems like an attempt at control to me. I'd never dream of telling anyone else what they "should" do like that!
Yes, I know I could "unfriend" her or stop following her posts, but that would seem mean. Although I'm a little bit tempted....nah. As long as I can vent about it, I'm ok.
