Bam! In Your Face(book)!!!

Damn son, I just got a friend request from a gal on Facebook, immediately followed by an apology message (from the same broad) saying "Whoops! Never mind. I thought you were someone else."

Except I sure-as-deoderized-armpits know this lassie!

ICE COLD.

Camman! It's Wednesday, for the love of Pete's sakes!

Where do I even proceed from here?

(I mean besides writing about it on the Internet.)

Also another failure on the life front. I have targeted one of the baristas at my sometimes-frequented coffee establishment as a consistent maker of subpar beverage concoctions. So whenever he's on deck for making my dairy doozy, I make a mental note to taste it for tastiness (or lack thereof) before I leave the premises.

Today, he was onboard. I tried the proffered elixir, and it tasted like brown water with old pepper in it.

So what did I do?!? One would've hoped I asked for an immediate rematch, no questions asked.

Instead, I just walked away. Because I hate getting people in trouble.

Worst story ever. For everyone involved. Except maybe Mr. Barista. He also kept yelling "I'll get it!" for everyone's orders as if he were saving the day. Emphasis on "as if".

It ain't right. The coffee, I mean.

In conclusion, Facebook live status updates are bordering on wretched. As much as I'd love to hear what everyone is doing at every moment of the day, no, I actually don't.

In fact, the worst happened recently to a friend of mine. She met someone at a party, and was immediately friended on Facebook at the very same party (because this person had one of those devious devices known as a Crackberry/iPhony), but then she and him ended up having a somewhat heated argument/discussion at the very same party, and she realized she didn't even like this person very much. So now she has to read about what he's doing all day because he wants to make sure people stay updated, and the circle of festering annoyance, as yet, remains unbroken.

(Moral: Make new friends, but not on Facebook. Not right away anyway. This is advice everyone will never take.)

She's the only one who doesn't seem to mind the status updates.

Literally, funny money.

[thanks for the tip, bro-Ham!]

Worse yet, you can't get all passive-aggressive and remove them as friends because Facebook will tell them that you did.

What Facebook, you've never shunned a friend and not told them about it? Psh.
