From the Land of Bad Ideas

Facebook thinks it would be a really swell idea for us to be friends, and by “us” they mean “me” and “my ex’s current husband.”

Not that I have anything against the guy — he’s way better suited to her than I ever was — but FB really needs a “Oh, hell no” button on some of these options.

    I think we need a different word than ‘friend’ for those kinds of situations. In my world, at least, the concept of “friend” is too emotionally weighted. (Which is why I am also bothered by the concept of “unfriending.”)

    My ex found me there how the hell did he even remember me and why after twelve years would he decide to befriend me . A hell no would have been nice . I like my past exactly where it is behind me!!

    It suggested three of them to me in one list. And I’ve only got about three. I had to laugh, but I would have liked a “hell no” button.
