Soon after I got a friendly "Hi, how are you?" private message from her. I PMed back that I was fine along with a bon mot or two. She wrote back asking if I had heard the good news? I asked what news. She responded saying she had won a prize from the Bill and Linda Gates Foundation. I wasn't surprised for Kathy has working tirelessly for Habitat for Humanity for many years. I asked what she had won imaging it was a grant or something. Then she said that if I too wanted a prize I had to type my full name into the text box. My last entry is "WTF! are you a bot?" End of conversation.
I think hackers are fucking with Facebook, big time these days.
I got a friend acceptance from a woman I hardly knew in high school who I didn't even send a friend request. We have lots of mutual friends, but I hardly spoke to the woman. I accepted her request, but unfollowed her.
It's kinda awkward to say, "Hey, I barely knew you so I'm not accepting your acceptance of my friend request. It was a mistake."
