I wish my mum had never joined Facebook, and I'm kicking myself for telling her to join. She stalks my profile every night and interrogates me later about things she just doesn't 'get'. Subsequently, I've stopped posting anything bloody interesting on my regular profile and had to start a separate 'Fifi' profile.
Another one who's regretting my mother's presence is my daughter. A 15 year old girl does not need her nanna stalking her either. I often get calls asking me to clarify something Alex has said or done online.
Below is a transcript of last night's call...
Mum: You didn't tell me Alex had a job.
Me: Ah, that's because she hasn't got a job.
Mum: Yes she has. She said on Facebook she has a job.
Me: Mum, I think I would know if my own daughter has a job!
Mum: Well maybe she doesn't tell you everything. Have a look at her profile. Up the top where it says 'Works at'.
Me: Ok, hang on....
