Be Careful of What Your Facebook Status Is...

...because it may cause others to have to write nasty things back to you!

No, this has not happened to me, personally, but I am on the VERGE of making a comment after someone's status that would really serve no purpose except to let me get 30 years of anger off of my chest!  So that should be a good reason, right?

So here's the thing, I am friends with a cousin of mine on Facebook.  She is younger than me, she had some issues while growing up and for a while, our families lived together.  During that time, she stole from me.  Not anything big, but she stole from me.  Years later as adults, I came to find out that she had started stealing from me again when she would come over to babysit Nick and then later still, just when she would come over with the family to visit.  At first, I did not know how to go about confronting her but without giving out too much detail, I finally FOUND most of my stuff in her room.  And she had the NERVE to deny doing it!!  She looked at me as if I had lost my freakin mind and was making it up.  Okay, sure, because NORMAL people take boatloads of their own stuff and PLANT IT in someone else's house for funsy sake!

After that, we no longer lived near one another and so I felt someone safe and that my belongings would stay where they belong - with me.  Relatives got mad at ME - refused to speak to ME - because I had accused her of this stuff and even though I had proof, I was the bad guy.  Well fast forward a year and now she's stealing from those relatives AND her place of business.  She gets mall-cop arrested and my uncle went in to help her and defend her but no one bothered to tell him her history of stealing!  Needless to say, he was not amused.  And all through this, she has not ONCE apologized or admitted to her crimes.  

So now here we are in present day and for like the last month, anytime she posts a status about herself it is about being betrayed!  How dare someone BETRAY her and then not have the decency to own up to it!  REALLY???  This girl STOLE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS from our Grandmother and left her in debt and then took off and she wants to bitch about being betrayed??

I'm sorry, but I can only hope that whoever it is KEEPS betraying her until she learns something from it.  It's too late to apologize to our grandmother but she has other people to apologize to...and I can only hope that I hold it together enough to NOT remind her of her misdeeds in the "comment" section of her next status!

Even if you did comment, she wouldn't get it. She is oblivious to how she "takes" from others and how it affects them. Don't waste your time.

karma has a way of biting you in the butt and it looks like she is getting a taste of that.

I just wonder this routine of stealing and then lying or denying. Isn't this one symptoms of Kleptomania? Some Kleptomaniacs are not aware of what they are doing.

I found the explanation here:
