I came home from my last final today only to discover I had 6 Facebook notifications (side note: I almost didn't add the word Facebook there -- it's scary that everyone still would have understood what I was referring to). I always get a little giddy when I see that red little flag with a number indicating how many people love me (that's how I interpret it, anyhow).
Turns out, three of them were invitations to something potentially wonderful: "Receive 4 Disney World / Land Tickets FREE! (Limited Time Only)"
I actually get a little sad when I see things like this. Do people really believe this stuff? Apparently they do. I would know. I was invited to "attend" three times over.
I lose a little faith in humanity every time -- and it's not only thanks to those who sent it to me, but to whoever the ridiculous man behind the ridiculous curtain is that created this ridiculous scam for whatever ridiculous reason.
(Second side note: I actually AM going to Disneyworld this year, but not because I sent virtual invitations to 50 of my Facebook friends.)
But hey, you know what, I'm just being a pessimist. Maybe Disney really IS giving away millions upon millions of free tickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You might as well send me an invite. I could be one of your 50 (or 100 if you're aiming for two of those golden passports).
