I have unsubscribed to so many people lately because they are so friggen annoying! If you are going on vacation, here's some friendly advice on how NOT to annoy the shit out of everyone on your friend list!
1. A post or two a day is sufficient whether you are on vacation or not, but especially when you are on vacation! A pic of the kids at the breakfast table, followed by the next tourist attraction you visit, followed by a pic of the kids at lunch, followed by a pic of the next tourist attraction, followed by a pic of the kids at dinner, then at the pool, then in their jammies in the hotel is COMPLETELY unfuckingnecessary.
How come no one posts pics of their kids misbehaving at the restaurant?
2. Cut the shit with the Check-Ins. If you are vacationing in California with your kids, it's a safe bet everyone will assume you are going to visit Disneyland. No need to confirm it by Checking In. If you are in Vegas, we will assume you will hit a casino or two. If I cared about where you were every minute of every day, I would have gone on vacation with you. But then I would have seen your real vacation. The one where the kids whine incessantly, everyone is overtired and sunburned and bitching at each other, one kid wants to swim and the other kid wants to go to the amusement park (I'm using Girl 15 and Girl 12 as a frame of reference here), husband wants to buy expensive souvenier, and wife doesn't want to spend the money (again, using Boy 45 as the example here)....not every minute of vacation is spent smiling for the camera, is it? If you are having such a fabulous vacation, why the hell are you spending half of it on Facebook updating your status, uploading your photos and commenting on them? That's not really my idea of a good fucking time, but to each his own, I guess. Go nuts!

4. You eat breakfast when you are home, we know you are going to eat breakfast while you are on vacation. No one wants to see your Vacation Omelet or your stack of Vacation Pancakes. Same is true for lunch and dinner. I don't care about your Vacation B.L.T. or your fucking Vacation Steak dinner. The only picture I want to see is someone giving you the Heimlich Maneuver while you choke on your T-bone and your vacation gets cut short, sparing the rest of us from the torture of your Fakebook Vacation.

Eat that BITCHES!
5. Here's something you can do. Take plenty of pics. It's vacation, after all! Upload ONE each day, if you must (some habits are hard to break). When you get home, look through your pics and choose a few that you want to share, and post them! I'm talking four or five here, not thirty or forty! I guarantee no one will be recommending that you make an appointment to be tested for narcissistic personality disorder!
If you watch Criminal Minds, they refer to the suspects (or unknown subjects) as "Unsubs." I've decided that I'm going to refer to the people I have unsubscribed from updates on my newsfeed to "Fakebook Unsubs." Off to do more unsubbing!
