this fits the thread title if not exactly the spirit

one of my best friends for the first several years of school moved away after 5th grade and we kind of fell out of touch. once i got facebook i went around adding people from my earlier school days, including rarely people i hadn't seen in years like this kid. today on the facebook memories thing it popped up that me and him became facebook friends 11 years ago today.

but weirdly just a couple days ago my mom sent me a clip from my hometown paper that had his picture in it. because i had just been reminded of him, i paid special notice to the friend-versary and clicked through to his profile. it is decidedly not the same person. so i've been friends with a total stranger on facebook for 11 years and neither of us has acknowledged this.

we even have four mutual friends who went to the same school too

I guess the real disaster is that I still have Facebook, huh.

This is great. Sort like when I noticed a friend of mine was fb friends with my cousin (who has the same first name as my wife). I asked her how she knew my cousin and she was like "I don't. Not sure how I ended up friends with her!" and this was in like 2011 and they're still friends on facebook to this very day.

my great aunt and uncle share an account and they will randomly send my friends requests. every couple weeks a different person will send me a message out of the blue like "hey i have no idea who this person is but they sent me a request and it says you're the only mutual friend"

It's pretty mean-spirited but considering that half the people are virulent racists i don't really care
