That whole "not fit to run xxx" always kinda rubs me the wrong way. I don't think many of us would step in and run one great, either. Now, maybe the implication is that they aren't fit to learn how to run xxx and maybe we don't fit that description. But I'd say being a restaurant manager is completely respectable occupation, if not potentially lucrative.

And I'm saying someone intelligent enough to run an Arby's probably isn't posting nonsense about shit they don't know anything about on Facebook.

Rass, FB sends me a notification every time you post something. Why?
Because you love me?

I think about all I did this AM was comment on my own post, which I don't you even liked much ( :( ) much less commented on. So no idea?

This may have been posted before, but now I’ve had two different people share something like this on Facebook:
We stand in line at Walmart, at Target, and the grocery store. We can stand in line to vote. No mail voting! Let’s make this viral! Please share.
Of course, I probably pissed them off by responding that I have voted by mail for 20 years and it works very smoothly and efficiently.

No, it sends me a notification every time you post a status update. "EK updated his status." Nobody else though.

FB was doing that for me with a couple of friends randomly as well. There is a feature where you can "follow" someone (that's in addition to simply being friends with them). In that scenario you would get updates when they post. My guess is it is the former though -- FB tries to anticipate someone you want to get updates about when they post for some reason.

For me, it was an ex-girlfriend I'm friends with, which was a little weird. We interact on each other's posts a little, but no more so than anyone else and certainly less than some.

It definitely weirded me out when I started getting notifications every time she posted.

Inheritance?

This is the Aunt who's son, my cousin Wayne, is in Federal prison for running a real estate ponzi scheme to the tune of $24 million. There's no inheritance anywhere.

And..speaking of my cousin Wayne...he should be getting out of prison in the next week or so. I know (from my parents) that they've moved him into isolation to make sure he doesn't have/get the Virus before they release him. He's getting out about 6 months early, due to wanting to move non-violent/close to end of sentence people out of prison before they get sick.

Excellent. So he’ll be back in the local headlines in another 18 months or so?
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

One would hope that he has learned his lesson, but who knows. While he's been in, he's been part of the program that has inmates train service dogs, and he's told my parents that he wants to keep doing that.

Yeah, its embarrassing but I think I was extremely naive about the current day prevalence of antisemitism until my 20s. Not "racism doesn't exist" dismissive, but just generally unaware.

I've recently started getting nothing but women's underwear ads...I have no idea why.

Just in the last two days I've started getting suggested articles from the Daily Wire in my feed. I've always read some conservative & crackpot stuff just to see what that side is up to but it hasn't changed in 10+ years...

My son was screaming at his iPad yesterday because he kept getting Youtube ads with Eric's wife asking him to sign a virtual birthday card for Trump. I'm sure that adds your name to their donation request list.
