Don't Ignore Those Little Warnings!

It has finally happened! I can’t log onto my Facebook account. Last night there was a message on my FB page that one of my granddaughters had written on my wall. She sends me hearts from time to time but this was different, it was a little box that suggested she had sent me a cyber gift. My gut told me to send her a message and tell her “thanks for thinking of me” however I wasn’t comfortable opening applications. Then I thought, “oh, it will be ok” and I didn’t want to hurt her feelings. Let me digress and say if your gut is telling you something you better listen! As soon as I clicked on the box I noticed that messages were going out that I had written on several of my FB friend’s wall.

I immediately deleted the application and posted a message on my wall that if anyone received a message saying I wrote something on their wall…I didn’t….and to ignore it or delete. I can’t remember the exact wording. Then I decided to be on the safe side; I would change my password. After doing that, it was late and I went to bed.

This morning I can’t log into my FB account. I keep receiving a message of “incorrect password”. I was very careful when changing it making sure I typed and retyped the new password correctly. So, for the past three hours I have been waiting for FB to email me the “confirmation” code. During the wait I have Goggled FB and how I might contact them and get help. Lo and Behold! FB does not offer “human” customer support. I’m sorry, but I think that is beyond tacky!!

I finally found a place on FB “help” to let them know I haven’t received my confirmation code and that I need to reset my password. That was over an hour ago. Now I just wait, patiently, um, make that semi-patiently.

I am learning something about myself that doesn’t quite thrill me. I’m feeling a bit antsy being unable to access my FB account. Could the antsiness  be that I’ve not felt good for the past 2 days; semi-sore throat, very scratchy chest and my head feels like it might explode. I’m pretty sure it is all allergies related, there is pollen and other thingy’s from the trees EVERYWHERE around here. I feel like all of my friends are having a party without me, oh…boo…hoo.

Eccl 7:8-9  Endings are better than beginnings. Sticking to it is better than standing out.  Don’t be quick to fly off the handle. Anger boomerangs. You can spot a fool by the lumps on his head. (from THE MESSAGE)

I’m hoping to find no lumps on my head!

I’m also hoping I don’t have to wait until December ~ : D

One time a warden asked a man on death row what he would like to eat for his last meal. The inmate said, “I would like to have a huge piece of watermelon.”

The warden said, “You must be kidding? This is December. Watermelons have not been planted, let alone harvested.”

The inmate said, “That’s okay. I don’t mind waiting.”

If you leave a comment, please leave it here since I can’t get on FB. I don’t even know if you can still see me on FB at this point. 🙁

    Sometimes FB can be not only frustrating but scary!

    Hello – I have been following you for a while but never commented before. Just wanted to share the name of a product that has really helped me with my allergies. It is called ImmunExtra and it is by a company called Allera. I had a year long problem that has been helped tremendously with this. Also, I work in a health food store where we sell this and our sales of this have really been significant for a new item.
    Thank you Marilyn, I appreciate the information and thanks for stopping by.

    That hasn’t happened to me, yet, but it has to a number of my friends. For one thing, I just never accept anything from people on FaceBook. I don’t get involved in the games and I don’t sign up on all those stupid “be a fan of …” lists. To be fair, though, I’ve not yet received anything from a grandchild. I may eat everything I’ve written above when the grandchildren start using FB! Sorry you had to go through this. It happens to the best of people. So consider yourself among the best of people!
    Thanks Greg! The sentiments are mutual. 🙂
