… for facebook users.

Don’t post about all your (considerable) needs, the inability of the welfare system to supply them, and requests for help IF your family smokes THREE $8.50/packs of cigarettes per day.  It seems ingenuous.

Don’t tell fb friends how tight the budget is if you’ve been posting about your lattes, your microbrews, your wines, your lunches out.  Or, if you do, at least amend it to be clear we’re not talking about the “discretionary spending” budget.

Don’t complain that you have no time to read, or cook, or craft if every other notice on your profile has to do with farming, jewels, or the mafia.

If you have “fuel to share,” don’t be surprised if I try to take you up on it.  If you keep asking for bricks and boards and help to build a bigger chicken coop, don’t be surprised if I do the same, and set the work party for 7am on a Saturday.  My place.

DO post your prayer requests, silly stories, the minutia of your day.  ESPECIALLY if you’re a stay at home mom, and don’t leave the house for days on end.  This is fb at its best.  ðŸ™‚
