How To Get Over A Friend Posting a Bad Photo of You

by Stav

It happened.  You and Shelby went out last weekend.   And it was fun! Fun, that is, until Shelby posted some terrible drunk photos of you to her facebook and of course had to tag you.  Who even posts going out photos on facebook?? Apparently Shelby, as you have unfortunately learned.  Don’t worry, though! You have a few, admittedly limited, options to choose from in terms of how to proceed.

The Non-Interventionist Route: Do nothing.  Maybe stay off social media for the next few days while the situation blows over.  Hope that your crush never sees this photo of you (he will) (don’t worry though, he won’t care because he doesn’t like you anyways).

The Pacifist Route: Just be a normal person and ask Shelby if she can untag you in the facebook post.  If you’re too scared to just straight-up ask, you can use the tried-and-tested, evergreen “I have family and coworkers on here and would prefer them not to know I have fun sometimes!” excuse.  Hopefully this works!

The Pacifist Route With Teeth: Just be a normal person and ask Shelby if she can delete the post.

The Passive-Aggressive Route: Since you won’t be a normal person about this and ask, just untag yourself.  Don’t even ask: she didn’t ask to post the picture of you in the first place. Tit-for-tat, baby!

The Passive-Aggressive Route, Option Two: Angry-react or sad-react the post itself.  Probably not effective, but mildly-entertaining.

The Interventionist Route: Ask Shelby in person about this post. It’s going DOWN, Shelby!!!

The Scorched Earth Route: Untag yourself.  Unfriend (or hell, even block) Shelby.  Unfriend all of your mutual friends with Shelby.  If anyone sees this photo, they will never get to see you again in any way, shape or form. They can’t know you ever looked like that. Delete your profile.  Fake your death.  Create a new name and life story and move to a random town in Pennsylvania.
