I was pretty deep in facebook. I felt pretty free expressing what I felt at various issues raised by fb friends.Until I wrote down simple cheeky words to a brother of mine. The words were: "Who's that brother? Is there anything.?" Then all hell broke loose.
I was accused of trying to break-up a marriage. Despite of my explanation, he still said that I was the one responsible for his rocking marriage. I vehemently denied. I have used fiercer words before, without any jealousy or fights before. I was informed much later that a laptop was broken to pieces soon after.
Then there was this fb friend who was going on a meeting in Riau, Indonesia. I texted him wishing him bon voyage. Then, unexplainably and out of no where, a lady fb friend answered and the text read: "Thanks 'abang'...I'm at LCCT.."
Then a war, just short of the third world war, broke out. I was attacked relentlessly by the lady folks in the family. Why? Just because of the word 'abang' that I thought was mistakenly sent to me?
I was accused of having an extra-marital affair, flirting with a girl of my daughter's age, being an itchy old man and other what nots that were too dirty to be mentioned here.
I tried to explain, but failed miserably. I chose to remain quiet. I quit fb for good just to pacify the raging fire.
"Is it there any truth in people saying that fb is one of the great causes of marriage break-ups?"
What say you?
