My niece asked to be my “friend” on facebook. I agreed, even though I haven’t spoken to her father (my older brother) for quite some time. Since the day that I have agreed, I have gotten requests from people in her life for friendship. I have no intention of allowing these people access to my life, but it seems odd that any of these people would think that despite knowing that I have no interest in them as human beings, they believe that Facebook erases my memory.
My older brother’s wife and her mom have sent me friend requests despite the fact that I have never been shy about telling them how I feel about them. Perhaps saying, “go die if a fire!” is not strong enough?
