Ok, I stopped by the neighborhood where I grew up yesterday to grab yep slices of pizza, then I proceeded to check in with a pic on Facebook.
Many commented on it “it’s so good,” “looks delicious,” yadda yadda.
Then came a comment from a woman I know. Sort of. Kinda sorta.
Ok she is friends of my friends ‘ ex-girlfriend and we all used to hang out together. I’ve barely said FIVE PARAGRAPHS to her. In total. And I haven’t seen her in 8 years or so. Maybe more.
We don’t have each other’s numbers, never hung out ever. You get the idea. Now she’s married with kid.
She says “oh you were in my neighborhood. Next time you are let med know. We’ll hang out.”
WHAAAAAAAAAAT?!?! That was unexpected.
Of course, if she were single, this wouldn’t be such an awkward request.
However I have no way of knowing is not. Her FB profile pic is of her and her husband. And her FB status still days Married. I’m not on touch with anybody that we have in common either.
“But Rex, what’s wrong with someone wanting to be closer with you, you black-hearted statue?”
Nothing, but even going from 0 to 60 in a split second can give whiplash. Even a Ferrari takes 2.6 seconds.
So I’ll sum it up… DON’T PUT PEOPLE IN AWKWARD POSITIONS.
That should be the Eleventh Commandment.
It’s like when someone you barely know asks you to be in their bridal party or Godparent to their child.
Ok those are extreme but you get the point.
Don’t behave like your friendship is at a far different level than it actually is.
That’s creepy shit.
