Don't unfriend her...just block her. Then, you're still friends but only see her posts when you want to. Then, you don't have to deal with it, but you'll still be friends.

Are you serious here? She wants pity? Give it to her. Who cares what other people think of you?

Facebook isn't the problem - people are. I have used facebook for years without issue. I don't think I am in the minority either.

Just block her, you won't have to see it, and it won't frusterate you.

But in person, take her to the side and just say "hey, don't you feel funny about taking handouts when you just spent $1000 in electronics?". Ive learned my lesson about saying things over facebook that should be said in person.

1. She bought herself an iPad and my cousin an iPad mini. She also got toys for tots for her daughter. This frustrates me greatly because if she can afford both of those she clearly doesn't need toys for tots if she would have just used her money more wisely.

2. She recently joined a new church group for single parents and keeps making posts about not having any family to help her out and how lonely she is. My cousin had a holiday concert that she was a part of and said it would have been nice if she had family that cared enough to come. She neglected to tell any of us about it or else I would have gone. She got all these sympathy posts about it.

3. She made a facebook post about how she needed someone to take my cousin Christmas shopping to get a gift for my aunt. I offered to take her one night last week but my aunt declined because she wanted someone to take her during my aunt's hair appointment today. My dad takes my cousin shopping for my aunt every year and spends a good bit of his own money on her presents. It really frustrates me that she doesn't give my dad any credit and makes our family look bad.


I don't want to un-friend her on facebook because she would call my dad who would than call me. It would turn into drama I just don't want to deal with.

What would you do if you were me?
It's not possible for me to tell you what I would do without getting banned!

i had this happen recently my sister kept saying how noone in the family will help her out and she cant make ends meet..she got a bunch of sympathy from other posters...then i called her out about the 5000 dollars i loaned (ill never see a dime of it back) to buy a van to take my neice to preschool so she doesnt have to be taken out of it..then i continued by telling her that i took her atleast 5 applications to jobs (yes shes jobless but her husband works) and i was willing to bet her 10 grand she didnt even fill them out..so before she started calling us out for not helping her...maybe she should start by helping herself lol..and she got snotty and said big whoop 5000 dollars and then blocked me lmfao

This. I would also talk to her face to face and see whats up with all the posts.

"Glad to see money is better for you this year after buying your new ipad, congrats!"

She'll probably un-friend you first... Problem solved.

Delete her from Facebook and block her from finding you. When she calls or ask you why your not friends with her anymore tell her you deactivated your account.

I would unfortunately cut her off. Let her find out the hard way how you feel, tough love is better than no love!
