An open letter to my friends on Facebook that I know I know, just not from where.

Dear Sir/Maam,

I see your friend request on Facebook. I know I know you from somewhere, but I just can’t place it. Your face looks very familiar, that is if you actually have a picture of yourself for your profile. A picture of your two year old does not help me at all. A Picture of your dog helps me even less. If you wan’t your dog to have a profile on facebook, then make him a profile. 

Your name sounds vaguely familiar too, but nothing is coming to mind. Did you get married, and I knew your maiden name? Maybe you should put that in parenthesis and help everyone out.

Did we go to high school together? If so, to be honest, I most likely didn’t know your name back then either.

Am I actually friends with your brother or sister? Maybe you are the parents of a friend of mine, or maybe the child of a friend. In this case, you’ll need to let me know to clear it all up.

Maybe you just want me to be in your Mob Wars Mob or whatever that thing is. I really don’t have time to play such trivial games, as I’m much too busy playing World of Warcraft.

Did I ever go out on a date with you ( very unlikely )? If so, to be honest, I most likely didn’t know your name back then either.

Did I work with you in the past? If so, I bet we didn’t hang out after work, or even have lunch together, did we? What’s changed now?

Do I currently work with you? Great now I gotta read about your crappy weekend, after I hear about it at work.

Maybe you bought my book, or whatever it is I’m selling these days, in that case you are my new best friend.
