Don't be a Dope, Add a Note!

I can't believe that friend requests notes are so much trouble for some people here on MFP. I read profiles with all sorts of rules.  For example: I don't accept friend requests after 6 pm, when I am picking my nose, or on Tuesday. What is Tuesday, you're cheat day? And how many calories are you logging those boogers as? But what about a note? Didn't I ask for a NOTE!

Here are the Top 10 excuses for not adding a note.

1. I don't have any fingers, I pushed the "Add a Friend" button with my nose. (You should see me swype on my iPhone using both nostrils.)

2. I don't speak English.

3. You looked so good in your profile pic, I was speechless.

4. I am a self-absorbed moron, and my note said, "You are lucky to have me as a friend." So, in  moment of compassion, I deleted it.

5. I read your profile and we don't have anything in common except that we have an animal for a profile pic. Meow.

6. I can't read.

7. With both fingers I can't type faster than 22 words per hour and I misspelled "lose."

8. I couldn't think of a nice way to say: I saw your answers on the message boards, and they were just so stupid, I thought it would be fun following you.

9. I did, I accidentally used white as a font color.

10. I was laughing at your blog post and hit the "Add as Friend" button while I wiping snot off the keyboard.

OK, so why don't you use notes with your friend requests?

Thanks for the votes and comments. And yes, I accept friend requests with or without notes - but I do like notes.

And for those who have been long-time readers, thanks for your support on my book project! The website is almost there.

11. I'm just lazy like that & won't ever actually comment on anything or provide support in any way; however, since MFP is just Facebook for Fat People, I want to look like I have a lot of friends.

Thanks for the laughs!

They are called "friend collectors". That is why I just delete warning, just delete.

I rarely send requests, especially now with my list so large, but I always included a message when I did. I used to accept without one, but I had to stop that when I started getting closer to 300. The white font is brilliant!

I hate it when requests come in without a note so I just ignore. I have lots of friends and want to be supportive to them all.

I have a beef with the gal that wants only Christians as friends because she is a Christian and only has Christian friends. Well I almost thought i was on a church site. The subject matter is weight, fitness or whatever. And we are all sinners, I am Catholic but I sure as hell would not indicate that it was related to diet and fitness. I think people like that are either dominated by their spouse or hiding something. Just my opinion. By the way, I only want Irish/Catholic friends who have a litte bit of a temper. LOL.
