People who overshare stuff about themselves on Facebook are somewhat annoying, but easy enough to ignore. However, the ones who share stuff about their friends, family, loved ones, co-workers etc. are really classless imo

There's a girl on my FB feed that I was friends with in high school and recently re-connected with on FB that is constantly airing her family business on Facebook, in spite of pleas from her family to knock it off.

She also whines constantly about her life, insults her boss, calls her co-workers names, etc, etc. I reckon it will all catch up with her eventually. I'm just glad I haven't actually had a conversation with her since graduation. She doesn't know anything about me to share lol

You must be careful what you put in writing especially on the web. Remember that once it comes out of our mouth we can't take it back.
I've bene milling this question since yesterday -a young cousin led the family to tell him about a family member that he never met. I know some terrible things about them. But then idealized -how would it arenot just the person look but it would make me look evil... .
I love to gather info. But sometimes one must know when to be mum.

When she goes into such detail I usually just ignore her. (and roll my eyes) She seems to have other friends that validate her posts and that just keeps her going. (and I sit there thinking don't validate her. We really don't need to know this)

Oh and she thinks her husband is so hot, probably if I told her he is so NOT. I would just be labeled as jealous. Since I never married and etc. I tell you what if he and I were the last people on earth the human species would die out. ::shudders::

Every time she overshares, inform her...TMI!!!
Or ask, "REALLY? What positions? With or without a condom? Pull-out method or are you trying for another baby? Make sure you tell us how many orgasms you have, too! K, thanks!"

Maybe she'll get a clue.
Or
Maybe she'll really tell you.

Okay.
Don't try the second method.

I do have a friend on Facebook that believes everyone wants to hear the minute details of her life. From what's for dinner to getting all little sumpin sumpin from her hubby (yes she spells it that way) And I'm like Really, REALLY!

To me that is TMI

I have only ever used the phrase as a joke....usually in response to something that isn't actually TMI, but could be construed that way when taken out of context.

I have had several friends who seemed to feel the need to tell me way more than I wanted to know about their sex lives, bodily functions, etc. Not really a matter of being uncomfortable in those situations, just didn't really care lol

I do however make exceptions for funny stories. You can tell me all the gross, personal stuff you want, as long as it's funny :)

I work for a trucking company in dispatch. You can imagine the things drivers call and tell me. I have heard it all. I had a guy call me to the window once and ask me if I could have someone take him to the ER because his genitals were on fire.Turns out he had the clap (which he also shared with me - the information -- not the disease) Then proceeded to tell me he thinks he picked it up at the truck stop from the toilet seat... I am sure he picked it up at the truck stop but not from the toilet seat...

That is just the tip of the iceberg.

I don't know why they seem to feel the need to share these things with a female dispatcher

I grew up in a medical family as well and our dinner conversation was all about the TMI factor; as a result, I have a very low TMI filter.

I am just like NAUSIKAA as I seem to attract TMI from others......I can listen to anything gross, not gross etc. but I think "TMI" when the person goes on and on and on and on......so for me TMI is timed event not actually about the content

Oh I also have an Aunt Flo and this caused many of the same conversations I have read about in this thread.

KJ -- I think we need proof of these Belgian squat things.......and as long as the boys are in their house, no worries.

...my best friends dad was a doctor. She too has a great tolerance for discussions on detailed bodily functions. Anything to do with that is a wide open topic.

I ran across this article and emailed it to her because it is definitely something she would find hysterical. so weird but well that's what makes her my bud

It's after lunch, and I am just siting here reading this thread from A to Z. I am laughing and laughing as I go along. Someone stopped in my office and asked me what was so funny and I said: TMI but it is funny as heck.

I'm not a member of FB or other social media so I'm not up on my shorthand. I do know TMI though and get way too much of it. I don't need to know your bathroom habits, sex habits or medical ailments. It seems the older one gets the more TMI they dish.

I attract TMI. Meaning, people are always telling me stuff that you would normally reserve for the gynecologist, psychotherapist, priest, and/or gastroenterologist. It doesn't bother me. I was raised by a doctor who seemed to think that anything involving the body was fair game for dinner table conversation and "of scientific interest." Nothing really gets to me. The ONLY exception is when people start getting all TMI with their small children's toileting experiences. I really and truly, cross my heart, do NOT want to know about diaper incidents, toilet training, wetting the bed, and anything else in that domain. I don't have children (in part out of a desire to avoid these aspects of childrearing) and would rather not have to be reminded of this stuff every time I open FB. Almost all my friends are parents of small children now so I get an eyeful on a regular basis!

@ I_HEART_MY_FAM...

My best friend and I in high school were sitting in history class. She started talking about her "Aunt Flo coming for a visit." This super cute guy, who she totally had a crush on spun around and said excitedly, "You have an Aunt Flo?! I have an Aunt Flo too!"

We both nearly died of giggle fits. It was difficult to explain to him WHY we were in hysterics...because he really did have an Aunt Flo...just not the euphemistic kind of Aunt Flo.

OMGOSH I have the funniest Aunt Flo story ever. My husband and another coworker was listening to another coworker as he said "oh man wife just called and said aunt flo is in town, damn I hate to go home". The other coworker started saying well how long will she be there? he said I don't maybe about 5 days.The other guy then asked what blood side she was from his side or his wifes side. The guy looked at him weird and chuckled and said her side.The guy then asked well what's aunt flo like? and finally the coworker said it's my wifes period, she calls it aunt flo. My husband and the other worker had no idea, they thought he was talking about a relative ,my husband said they died laughing! gosh I wish I was there lol lol lol. We still laugh about this and this happened about 4-5 years ago.

OMG. That is funny. Sometimes I have a tendency to overshare (not so much anymore) on public forums.
Like others have said, though, I think WHO is sharing the info makes all the difference in the world. Like, I can talk about my Aunt Flow with my mother, and maybe a couple on-line female friends. You do not want me to put as my status for all to see, though, "GlitterFairy77 is currently bleeding out of her vagina." TMI! GAH! MAKE IT GO AWAY!!! AAARRRGH! MY EYEDRUMS ARE BURNING! (I'm NOT by the way. That's just an example.) I still haven't decided whether or not sharing the fact that my pubis and left butt cheek are tattooed is TMI or not.

I'm in the same boat as Mandie. I have a pretty thick skin and normally am also saying, "Did I say that out loud?"

@Sheryl - I know what you mean...what is seen can not be unseen; what is heard cannot be unheard

sis is BIG on the overshare. Anything you want to know, and LOTS of stuff you wish you didn't know. So I may be a little more immune to TMI than many people.

and I know what KJ means. Some folks can tell you really personal stuff and you don't think too much about it; somebody else could share the same info with you and you'd have a totally different reaction.

I think TMI is a nice way of telling someone or being told that the other person is not comfortable with discussing that topic ....whether they feel it makes them uneasy discussing it at all ... or maybe with that person. Sometimes people get so carried away by what they are expressing that they don't realize they've gone a little too far in mixed company.
I've had people share intimate things with me that I would be reluctant to tell Anyone...
even my closest friend...but I guess they were comfortable exposing personal details.

It is really bad because I don't have a filter. And usually the looks I get after something just spurted out of my mouth.

My sisters filter is even less than mine.

I have never run into anyone that is like "Tell me more" Just the awkward silence and the thinking "Did I just say that out loud?"

I have heard my sister, and one of my daughter's use that phrase before, but they do it in a jokingly way, and directed at anyone they get the notion to say it to. It usually leads everyone to chuckle, so they basically know that is what will happen before they say it. It's like their little convo piece if that makes sense. It is harmless. The face expression has to go with it other wise it isn't funny. I think the girl was playing with you at the gym. I never seen someone say TMI and really mean it. Here on the boards it may be a whole new ball game though lol

We're talking about exercising the other day at lunch (my colleagues & I) and then I start talking about doing Bulgarian Split Squats and dumbbell Step-Ups to help shape my bum. This is a topic we've talked about before but I never contributed on this angle as I use to not do legs at all but now I do. So this woman says with a disgusting look on her face, "Ew, KJ, TMI...." then scoffed again. (She didn't say KJ, she said my real name).

My friend says to me in response to that comment, "Pull 'em down KJ, let's see if they're workin!"

Too funny. I did NOT show anyone, however.

What about conversations you've had, had you ever had to say TMI to someone talking about a topic you may be uneasy hearing about? Do you know anyone who may have been hypocritical and said TMI but same subject different person had the "tell me more" attitude?

My example, though real, isn't really the topic here....
