Wtf just happened

So…a few weeks ago this childhood friend who I hadn’t seen in many decades searched me out on fb and sent me a friend request. I was really pleased to reconnect with them. We exchanged a few messages, but they live several hours away so it was really just the occasional message and not hanging out in person, but I was happy thinking that I’d made a new / old friend after all these years. But I’m a busy person with lots going on in my life and I don’t spend a lot of time texting or talking on the phone. All of my friends are the same; we’ve got stuff happening and families and whatnot, and sometimes my friends and I don’t talk for ages but we’re still friends. So out of the blue today I got this message from them angrily telling me they’re done with me because I’m too busy, then they blocked me! Wtf! As if we were in some kind of high school relationship or something. I always replied to their messages quickly and in a friendly way, so this was just so random. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it before and I’m still shaking my head and giggling.

Weird but if this happens to me I tend to get mad at first. Then later on I see the thing in perspective.

It takes all kinds, doesn't it? If you two were so close in the first place then perhaps things might have been different. People can be so strange sometimes.

Facebook connections vs. live

In the digital arena on Facebook, we can end up finding so many people from our past and elsewhere it really is impossible to actually meet up with everyone. Sometimes FB *is the connection. This person made an unreasonable demand of you.

We hadn’t seen or spoken to each other since we were in early elementary school and we weren’t even close friends then.
