America's Most Wanted

This is a Q Service Announcement! Be on the look out for this individual:

Perpetrator: FB Peacocks
Crime: Spotlight Thieves

I've referenced what a FB Peacock is before, but I'll brief those who may not have read about them. Peacocks must have the spotlight and not just to showcase their worldly possessions. Sometimes it's just all about them.

Have you ever had a FB friend who counts down the last 30 days of their birthday?

"Only 27 days to go until my birthday! I can't wait!"

Uh, is your birth date not on your Profile page? Will I not see a reminder once your birthday arrives?

But, they don't care. They want your attention. They want to feel special, not just on that day, but the weeks leading up to it. And on that faithful day, some will even come out of their own pockets to pin money on their shirts so that even strangers will know it's their b-day.

I'm not saying b-days don't matter. But "happy birthday's" are like "I love you's". It should mean more to you when you don't have to remind someone constantly to say it.

  2. LOL! Shouldn't you be asleep? I'm glad I'm not the only person to notice this. I see it a lot with my FB friends and it cracks me up. Some times if they update their status with it and no one responds in a timely fashion, they'll mention it again a few hours later. It's too funny.

  3. I agree anything freely offered is always more meaningful than something begged for.

    The only countdowns I ever do are the ones until Friday, or the ones until vacation. I might be guilty of starting the vacation countdown a month in advance. Birthdays - thankfully mine is close enough to Christmas to kind of get lost in the shuffle. I'm good with that.
