Oh Facebook.... GLUE Guns are For Crafting!!!

I guess I'd gone a week or two without actively hating Facebook. But today... I just can't stop shaking my head.

So I posted:

"Hey, crafty friends (and anyone who might know) - any thoughts on where to find inexpensive mini glue guns? (7mm stick size) They don't need to be super heavy duty or anything. But I need ... um... 17 of them... HELP! Thank you in advance! :) "

And I got this: 

So apparently Facebook doesn't know that glue guns are for making crafty things? I get that Facebook hates guns. I know this. But it's a HOT GLUE GUN.  WTF did they think I was going to do? Bond myself to a school?

I can't stop shaking my head. Utterly ridiculous.

But as a side note, I really DO need 17 mini hot glue guns. A friend suggested Michael's, so maybe I'll try there Monday or Tuesday (I work all weekend.)

I guess if I try to post a tutorial about what I'm doing with 17 glue guns, I'll need to bring in the NRA so FB doesn't delete it?

Hope your Friday is less stupid than mine. :)

  1. The only comment I'm going to make is that Michael's usually gives a coupon for a future purchase, when you buy something there. So don't buy all 17 mini glue guns at once.

    1. Hey Barb! That is a good point! Though sometimes they have a "20% off everything, including sale items" coupon (like LAST weekend. Of course. D'oh!) so that could be good too. Coupons! Didn't even cross my mind! Good thinking! Thank you!

  2. Hi Wendy! My suggestion is to try the $1 stores in their craft sections. I see glue guns there for sale all the time.


  3. Hi Wendy. Man, you really have some interesting experiences with Facebook! I had to laugh, what else can you do?
    I cannot remember where I bought my mini glue gun. I think Elizabeth's suggestion to try the Dollar store could be interesting.
