The Friendship Test

Saw this the other day on a friend's Facebook wall the other day:

I do not have a large number of friends.

Aww. I'm sorry. Hang out a while and you'll get more.

In fact, I do not accept some.

So it's not that you're a newbie. It's because you set high standards. That's cool.

I'm happy to have you, because you are among my friends.

Thanks! I  feel so special.

In addition, over time I've erased some, due to unacceptable behaviors.

Um, feeling a little threatened here.

Now I'm going to see who will read this post to the end.

I should probably admit I'm losing interest at this point. If you want me to read to the end, how about saying something interesting?

I'm curious to see who takes care of the bond that we have.

Okay, just for the record, we don't really have that much of a bond. We went to high school together--and we ran in different circles. Not that I don't like you, I'm just saying we really weren't that tight.

Thank you for being part of my life.

No problem.

Please do not share this post.

Um, you're pretty safe on that one.

This is a little test, just to see who reads and those who share without reading!

Granted, careless posts are a pain in the butt, but when did we decide we needed a test?

If you read everything, select 'like' and then copy and paste this to your profile...

Um, I don't want to.

...so I can put a comment.

You're setting a pretty high bar there for a comment, toots.

Then comment your favorite flavor of ice cream under my post.

Seriously? This is what this is all about? Ice cream? You should have led with that. I'm pretty sure you lost most of the ice cream crowd when you started getting all snooty and making demands.

So here's the deal. These "cut and paste this post to prove your friendship" leave me feeling the same way my high school boyfriend did when he had a test I needed to pass to prove my affection. I skipped that one and I think I'll skip this one, too.

And by the way--vanilla. Because you can add toppings to make it any flavor you want.

If someone has to TEST my friendship, then maybe they aren't a friend!
Stuff on FB can be so STUPID at times. Ugh.
