What It Would Look Like If You Responded Truthfully to Annoying Facebook Messagesby Veronica Dukes on April 04, 2012
Ever had someone you have no romantic interest in continuously bug you with asinine messages on Facebook/gChat/AIM/whatever? You must read this brilliant post on The Hairpin.
(Yesterday) D: My messages are meant to be harmless but I don’t know if you remember trying to make out with me when you knew I had a girlfriend makes you calling my messages ‘inappropriate’ is well hypocritical. I personally think not answering people’s messages is flat out rude and incosiderate a sign of possible snobbery. Your not someone I care to know anymore. Goodbye.
(Today) K: Dear D, Your suggestion that my failure to answer your Facebook messages might be a sign of possible snobbery truly upset me. I realize now that my self-regard has spiraled out of control. I would like to make an effort at atonement by answering just a few of the messages you’ve sent me over the years, messages that I selfishly allowed to go unanswered.
D: Yo kid how ya been?
K: I’ve been better. I recently broke up with my boyfriend, as you probably know from reading my relationship status, which I changed back to “single” a mere 27 minutes ago.
D: How goes it?
K: If by ‘it,’ you mean my general health, my relationship with my family, or my yoga practice, ‘it’ is going fine. If by ‘it’, you mean my dissertation or my financial outlook, I have to admit that ‘it’ has seen better days.
D: Lol should I just not bother IMing you as I never get a response?
K: Lol, probably.
