Faceb**K

Have ya missed me??? Where have I been you ask?? Well I have been busy confirming my "new" but "old" friends on FB. Alas I think I made need to step away from the very popular Faceb**k.

Here are some signs that it might be time to step away from your FB page.....


  1. You get an friend request from you mother. (yes, my mother wants to be my "friend")
  2. You overhear a retired teacher giggling about her high school boyfriend finding her on FB. (yes, seriously heard it today in the workroom)
  3. You think that it is freakish that people from high school are "thinking" about you and find you on FB.
  4. You find out that you are the same dork you were in high school after your sister, Miss FB tells you "you are still a loser.....people are just looking at a list of people who have a FB pages that graduated from your high school...DORK!"
  5. Your husband's female "friends" from college are writing on your FB wall looking for him.
  6. Your husbands ex-girl friend does not have a FB page. You know this cuz you looked once you figure out the high school thing Miss FB shared with you the other night.
  7. Your son tries to tell you that FB is for woman over 40.
  8. You have found people on FB that you really really hope don't find you.
  9. You feel bad that you don't have 4 pages of "friends".
  10. Any time you mention FB to your spouse his response is " FB is for girls".

I am not sure I want all those "friends" prying into my so called life! :)
It seems like a locker door that is just left open all the time.

I haven't even gone over to check this place out. I'm afraid I'll get sucked in and I just can't devote any more time to this computer addiction than I already do. LOL!

Teeheehee!
I set up my facebook account several months ago, but then did nothing with it, until one day a friend from HS asked to be my friend. DH set one up too, and then he thought it was sooooooo funny how after only a couple of hours he had so many friends. He is still outranking me on that aspect.
Funny too, when we set his up, we looked for his ex-girlfriend, and did not find her. She found him though, funny story too, I checked out her page, and she is a friend of one of my friends from HS, the funny thing is, we did not go to school in the same area (at all) as the ex, and she is several years younger than us. I figured out what happened. They both work at the same Hospital, and when she became FB friends with my F from HS, she saw my name on her page, and then searched for DH. FUNNY!
She probably Sh@# a brick when she saw my name! She soooo hated me! Thinks I stole her man!

Doug and Terrye said...

OOOPS!! I'm one of those dorky FBers that is thrilled when one of my old friends pops up. But if DHs old girlfriends start stalking him through me I might have to drop the whole FB thing :)

Oh, I am so there with ya! I had to step away a couple of weeks ago. What's funny is that my 19 and 21 yo nephew and niece had to find another place to hang out now that their parents/uncles/aunts and even grandparents were all scoping out their doings on their FB pages. LOL!

Beverly said...
