After you join Facebook, you get constant requests to be “friends”.
At first, I thought that every “friend” request was submitted by the “friend”. But, then I came to realize that it was Facebook sending out the requests and not the actual person. I guess that would explain why some people wanted to be my friend.
Now, since I didn’t want to offend anyone, I accepted every and all “friend” requests even if I didn’t know them. Then, I accepted a request from some kid, whom I didn’t know. All he did was write about eating feces. And even though I thought sure he was the son of someone I knew, I deleted him.
Then, I started getting “friend” requests from women who were exposing their breasts in their profile pictures. That is when I decided that not everyone who wanted to be my “friend” actually knew me.
