Are Those People Still My Friends?
Even if all they do is send you stupid invites and game requests? Are they still your friend? They have never said ‘hi’ or wish you happy birthday, so are they? Today I set out to delete some hanger-ons on Facebook. You know the kinds who are just there, contributing nothing? Maybe send you the odd game request? Yes, those. I figured I had had enough with the game requests and it was time for them to go. I imagined what it would be like, surrounded by friends who actually communicated with me. A genuine circle of friends. So I gathered up all the hanger-ons and got ready to do some deleting.
But I didn’t. No I didn’t. That’s your teacher, Carlos. You’ve known her for a very long time. She doesn’t do much as a Facebook friend but she moulded you into who you are today. Who cares if all she does is send game invites? At least she’s still around and making her presence felt. I wouldn’t delete her, Carlos boy. What? Don’t even think of deleting him! That’s your old classmate. I know he hasn’t said boo to you in forever but at least you know he’s only a message away. Come on man! What?! You are actually thinking of saying bye to your cousin? Your cousin? Ok bro, you’ve crossed the line…And so it went on and on…until no one was deleted.
Safe for now buddy, safe for now. You might be so lucky next time. Say hi or else…
