How do you know you are persona non grata?

You know you are persona non grata with your daughter when she defriends you on facebook. Heh. I love social networking etiquette. If the rules are to be followed, we should both now write up our different versions of the argument, and then demand that mutual friends choose a side. After all, Boyfriend tells me that he didn’t know we were in a relationship until he read it on Facebook. I hope that was tongue in cheek, as otherwise it makes him gorgeous but dense.

Sadly, I didn’t notice the defriending thing until today because I don’t usually go on Facebook. Never mind; the only reason I joined in the first place was to keep an eye on the girls’ activities. I already KNOW now what they get up to and I would prefer not to dwell on it too much. I’ll survive the worst social networking insult imaginable.

Do you think daughter meant it when she said that she would have nothing more to do with me? Not totally true. I can’t help noticing that certain items have been removed from the house and that food has been eaten/taken. She still has her key and obviously comes around when I am not in.

I probably should be upset by all of this. But she’s an adult now and totally able to make her own decisions and deal with the repercussions of her actions. All I can do is stand around and watch; loving her always but not willing to be treated with a lack of basic human respect. I’ve always tried to pay my daughters the courtesy of treating them politely, no matter what the provocation. It’s what adults should do. I was never very fond of two year olds.


About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.

    I am so sorry! I understand that pain because my 22 year old will not allow Mr and I to be his friend on facebook, even though all aunts, uncles, cousins, his siblings, etc are friends on there. He has two facebooks. The one that they are all on is the cleaned up version, I am assuming. Yes, it hurts like hell that he still won’t let us on there. I don’t get it and I never will.

    I am so sorry that your daughter is behaving this way and I hope she will grow out if it. Not very fair of her to come into your home and take things while you are not there. If she wants nothing to do with you, then she certainly should not have the benefit of your food and such. Hopefully, she will grow out of this. If she has children, then she will realize how much you have sacrificed for her. ((hugs))
