FB Called Me Old
I know I am getting older. My blog title says I’m middle age. Do I really need Facebook to call me out? Really? I was on Facebook today and responding to a friend and suddenly something caught my eye. Over on the right hand side where the ads run and where the ads are supposed to be geared toward the specific user it had an ad that said “Senior Singles Meet!” What?! I am single. But it called me a senior!
I’m 40. When did that turn into senior? I thought I was just middle-aged. When did I suddenly hit senior status? I am not pleased with this at all. And maybe I want to be a cougar? Did they ever think of that? I might want a hot 20-year-old. I might not want to meet a single senior. I might want to be single forever.
Who does Facebook think it is? Why don’t they just advertise Depends undergarments for me? Or they could also advertise coffins or funeral services? Why not? They said I’m a senior and I might croak at any second. Right? Just because I’m not a spring chicken anymore, it doesn’t mean that I’m old either! There is some middle ground. And I am pretty sure that is where I am at. I’m not old. (yet) And I am just coming to terms with this whole middle age crap. Quit pushing me into the grave, Facebook! Go pick on Justin Bieber or the Kardashians. See? Would an old person know who they are? No. So leave me alone! Stupid Facebook.
