People who are friends with you on Facebook, but get all shy around you in the real world.
Just a quick one, this has been bothering me for a while, and it’s happened on more than one occasion now.
So I’m friends with quite a few randoms on Facebook. Besides you of course. You are the exception, I’m really fond of you.
Everyone else is a bit random though.
However, if I DO happen to recognise someone’s face, I know their name, and I’m even willing to greet first (Not a massive greeting, but a gentle nod of the head – that’s pretty huge, coming from someone like me) I would of course expect that they would reciprocate my greeting and bask in the knowledge that I have acknowledged their presence.
But no, instead she quickly dropped her gaze to the floor, and then as she approached me turned her head 180 degrees to look at something which had apparently caught her interest.
Like a f**king owl.
I’m sorry owl lady, but as I recall, YOU were the one who sent me the Facebook request in the first place. So it’s not like you don’t know who I am.
We were at Woolies, what could have possibly been so interesting that you risked snapping your neck to avoid looking at me?
The green peppers?
Granted, they were on special, but come on.
Anyone else ever experience that?
