anyway, I really enjoy seeing what losers their husbands are, and how ugly and stupid their kids are, on facebook. sorry, I know that is petty of me, but espectially the one that told me that she really wanted a husband who could give her good looking kids and she didn't think I had it in me, I love looking at pictures of her ugly kids.
I had an white girlfriend waaay waay back in early highschool. The family was well to do and her parents loved me. We broke up because they moved to another state. We all kept in touch though. But during the election last year both the parents and the old girl friend were very very active on my facebook page and apparently they turned into super right winged/tea party types. Personally I have nothing against that side of politics but once their posts started getting blatantly bigoted (against blacks/mexicans and the race of the president). At one point they started asking me straight out about my thoughts on "obama care" and posting loaded questions for all my other friends and family to see.
I did try to engage in some sensible debate with them - but I realized that it was bound to turn into a troll war type of thing.
I did see their whole family recently when they visited NY early this year. the parents were so aged, the old girl friend didn't age well (mid 30's but looked older and tired), and she married a not so well to do guy. Apparently the family lost a lot of money in the early 2000s. Naturally we were all very friendly to each other once face to face. I was happy to see them.
but I'm not going to lie... it was sweet knowing that my wife and I were doing a lot better than her and her husband.
