My Mom's Thoughts on Social Networking

Mom: So, I signed up for facebook today.

Me: Oh yeah? I'll friend you. *types in her name and scans list* I don't see you on here.

Mom: *smiling smugly* That's because I signed up as (insert really obscure name).

Me: Okaaaaay. But if you're signed up as (really obscure name) how is anyone going to find you?

Mom: That's the point. I don't want anyone to find me.

Me: All right. So, if you don't want anyone to find you then how are people going to friend you?

Mom: I don't want people to friend me.

Me: Then why are you on facebook?

Mom: Because...*...*walks away*


  1. Mom: Because...*...*walks away*

    Ha! Your mum is such a teenager ;-)

  2. Oh, dear. Don't you know? She wants it to play the games! Bejeweled Blitz!

  3. Your mom is a riot! Does she have her real photo with her alias?

  4. that's too funny! My mom thought the internet was just one big place everyone could go to when they turn the computer on. So at least she's in the right direction!

  5. That's hilarious. Of course, I can't really say much since I'm not on FB either LOL.
