A Dundonald woman abruptly ended her self-imposed two-day Facebook exile with a post reading: ‘Well, that lasted long’.
Shelly ‘Loyal’ Magee (32) conceded defeat after 48 hellish hours of being unable to pry on the lives of people she knows but can no longer stand.
It constituted an embarrassing U-turn for Shelly after she posted a withering assessment of Facebook and everyone who uses it shortly before deactivating her account.
In a longwinded expletive ridden rant, Shelly wrote:
‘Does anyone know how ya delete this thing for good? Fed up reading about everyone’s perfect lives when we all know the f**kin’ truth.
She went on:
‘Half the b**tards on this thing wouldn’t even say hello to ya in the street’.
Shelly’s tirade provoked a response from a series of nosy bastards on her friend’s list.
‘Don’t delete it hun, time for a clear out me thinks’, commented Shelly’s friend Nicola ‘Scentsy’ Jones.
‘Awk, I’ll miss your wee rants’, wrote Helen McMelter.
Despite her friend’s pleas, Shelly followed through with her threat and deactivated her account on Monday morning.
However, within a matter of hours, Shelly deeply regretted her actions.
And even though she was still able to creep on people via Instagram, Snapchat and various other media, it wasn’t the same.
Desperate to catch up on all the biz, Shelly swallowed her pride and reactivated her account.
Later that night, Shelly posted, ‘Does anyone have the number to the Golden Garden Chinese?’.
‘Google’, commented one local raker.
