I think I just ate my weight in chips and dip. And since I am confessing I will tell you I also ate two Entenmans chocolate donuts. Hey, don't judge me. I feel sick, okay?? Are you happy??
I need some advice. It's about Facebook. I know!! Okay??? I know!! I am totally an addict. I'm aware. Can we move on please?? God. You're so judgmental today.
So tell me dear friends. What do you do when you get a friend request from someone you have ZERO desire to be friends with?? Say it's someone from your past, or even worse, someone from your work. Like maybe even YOUR FREAKING BOSS. Dudes. How do you handle this debacle?? Because that is really what this is. A major debacle. How do you tell your boss you do not want to be her FB friend. I can't use the excuse that I don't want to be friends with people from work. Because I have TWO FB friends from work. That would be lying. Do you think she will understand if I tell her it's just too awkward?? Or do you think I am totally screwed?? Yeah. That's what I was afraid of.
So what about the people from your past?? The people who (Is it who or whom here?? Because I can never remember this rule.) you really didn't like that much when you knew them before. Because they were a little too judgy. And unkind. And maybe even crazy.
Or maybe they just stopped speaking to you and told everyone it was because you thought you were too good for them even though you NEVER thought that. It was just that you didn't agree with the choices they were making because they were HUGE mistakes that you could plainly see. HUGE mistakes. Possibly even illegal mistakes?? Are you following me here?? Don't go accusing me of being judgy because I am so not being judgy. I just didn't want to get arrested. Because that would be bad.
So anyhoooooo. Let's say this person used to be your very good friend. Knew everything about you. The good and the bad. And then threw their life away because they were stupid. And selfish. And stubborn. And then quit talking to you one day even though you jeopardized a lot for this person. Even though you were there for this person. Through good and bad. And when I say bad, dudes, I mean baaaaaaad. And you smiled politely and said nothing when this person talked all kinds of crap about you after you finally had enough and quit speaking. Because you didn't have anything in common anymore. And it was just too painful for you to watch the downward spiral. And you decided it was time for some tough love. And it hurt. Tremendously. And you mourned. And you finally got to a place where you could forgive, even though the person was still spinning lies to people you had in common. And then one day out of the blue, you get a friend request. And you don't want to hurt their feelings because you know they have made some changes. In the right direction. But you are not sure if you want to open yourself up to that again. You are not sure if this person is still toxic.
What do you do?? Do you click ignore?? Or do you accept?? And open a window that might be best left closed....
What do you do??
