On Thursday night, I received a message on facebook. The short conversation went something like this – random person : suck my dick?
me : Tell your mum to?
random person : wtf, whats your problem?
Obviously, I’m aware of a few things :
1. It could have been a punk
2. I didn’t need to respond in such a manner
3. I don’t have to post the picture up
After the first test message I sent, and getting that reply back, I decided that he couldn’t have been punked. So I took a screenshot and uploaded it, condemning him.
I just don’t see why people should be allowed to think that it’s acceptable to carry out SEXUAL HARRASSMENT on private message AND NOT GET PUBLICLY SHAMED FOR IT.
Shortly after I received a wall of messages from him informing me that it wasn’t him, and that he stepped away from him com for 10 minutes and his colleagues sent that message. So, I removed it from my wall. And went back to streaming/playing my game.
random person : i dont think i deserved to be honest, just because i left for 10 min from my pc
me : be careful next time i got real assholes pming me things like that so i’m not too surprised ok bye i streaming. need to play my game
Somehow people still continued to access it, probably from links from people who saw and replied to it.
random person : tammy, i need to ask u to remove this picture as i dont want shit like this lying around the internet. i already told u, even before u told me about this post, that it wasnt me writing this shit. if it hasnt been removed in 5 min i kinda need to report this to fb. not as a threat, but u are probably gaming at the moment..
1. i alr said i removed it from my timeline
2. i posted before you replied
3. its not my problem, honestly if u don’t want to guard your com so pls if you are asking for a favour ask nicely for all i know you were really the one who posted then decided to act blur its YOUR account YOUR responsibility
And I was in the middle of games and streaming, so I didn’t read the reply cos I figured it’s solved after I hid the picture.
And guess what? This asshole reports me because his “intention was not to get u banned at all, but simply to get the picture removed from public”
GUESS WHAT DUDE. People get fired for leaving them com unlocked cos other people can take a look at classified/internal information. You deal with your own responsibility yourself instead of making it my fault. In the end, the message is sent with your account, and no matter how you want argue, you can’t prove that it wasn’t you who sent it, then got cold feet for seeing me post it to 7000 people to see.
He can tell me this : as i told u, im not that type of person write this shit to a person
GUESS WHAT’S MORE? I don’t know you! Probably NEVER met you before, NEVER spoken to you before, except for this one time, where you start off the conversation with a “suck my dick”.
WHAT MADE ME REALLY MAD, was when at 5am, I receive a notification THAT I HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM USING FACEBOOK BECAUSE I HAVE VIOLATED THEIR RULES.
So, on a day when I REALLY need my social media to post out event updates, I’M STUCK GLARING AT THE SCREEN AND BEING BANNED.
To this guy’s colleagues, I hope all manner of unpleasant people come your way and that you get into tons of trouble because of them. It’s all fun and games to you when you punk someone, but maybe you should not involve someone else, AKA ME.
TO YOU facebook just a fun way to interact with your friends and play games.
To other people it’s their livelihood, and they make a living based on their reach.
So, THINK ABOUT THAT.
To the GUY. I hope you learn what RESPONSIBILITY is, and instead of just REPORTING ME, when I already showed that I was willing to HELP YOU GET OUT OF YOUR SHIT, you could have WAITED until I replied. If you were as INNOCENT as you said, you’d have NO TROUBLE convincing your GIRLFRIEND, MOTHER, FUTURE EMPLOYER who happened to see it that it wasn’t you.
And to myself, I’ve learnt an important lesson. It doesn’t pay to be nice to RANDOM PEOPLE WHO SAY STUPID THINGS TO YOU, WHO SHIRK THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THEIR OWN PART IN THE MATTER AND THEN PROCEED TO GET YOU INTO TROUBLE.
I’m already being VERY nice in not naming this person, even though I could very well do it on my own personal blog, WITHOUT GETTING BANNED.
