Anyway, toe poke die girl my op Facebook. Sy wassie eintlik my tjommie nie ma’ ek accept ha maar anyway. Don’t want to be rude and all that.

    Meisie, dankie virrie advice. Is nogals weird om mense se vrae te antwoord as ek hulle laas op skool gesienit. Ek lykes glattie van goeters praat as ekkie lus het nie. It’s so annoying.
    Ek gan ha net ignore. Jy’s reg – sy sal eventually ophou met die questions.

  5. Toby Hanks said,

    Oh my word – you remember my death poems???! Damn, I should go and look for them and post them here. Jirrie, ek het lankal van daai vergiet.

    He didn’t say she looks nice. Why would he? She doesn’t look nice! I don’t want to tell her because she mustn’t be so fokken bus. Really, a person must mos have manners, or am I living in a dream world?

    Meisie, i think i still have copies of them in a shoe box at my mommy’s house..u know with all my private love letters and shit in it..

  7. Toby Hanks said,

    See how these things come back to bite you in the bum! I’ve long forgotten about those poems. Oh, I simply must see if I can find some of them. It will be hilarious to read them.
    You know Mrs Ellman thought I had psychological problems after she found one in one of my schoolbooks…

    jirre, there’s nothing wrong with death poems, who wants to write about flowers all day? it means you’re deep- you’ve thought further than where you’re going to draw your line for nine-hockey or whatever.
    But if she didn’t look nice she mustn’t vis.
    Jirre. I hate vissers.

    You know Toby I’m really starting to think that Facebook is not such a good idea after all… Yah, I found some long-lost friends, but unfortuantely those that I didn’t want to find somehow found me. New surname and all 🙂 What I don’t like I’m going to ignore…

  10. Toby Hanks said,

    MrsM, thanks. I was only 14/15/16 years old but I did write about deep stuff. Hey, i’m deep. How cool is that?!

    Gnome, I agree with you. It’s strange actually – I’ve been using Facebook with this name and it’s great. When I created a profile with my real name it became annoying and awful – that’s when i got all the losers and freaks contacting me.
    I have decided to ignore or reject anyone I don’t like from now on. that’s the only way to go, I think.

    Tobes,

    don’t let anyone bully you! If you don’t want to link someone as a friend then don’t. That’s it. If your entire facebook friends group decide to invite you to the same stupid application that you don’t want to add at least once a week…click ignore, ignore and yes…ignore! I know they say you can’t look a gift horse in the mouth – but seriously – this aint the Durban July if you know what I mean.

    “Just say NO!” 😉

  12. Toby Hanks said,

    Thanks for the advice Louisa. I’ve been doing the ignoring of groups thing. It’s just too much sometimes. There are ones that are frivolous and fun but it can become a bit overwhelming when the whole world wants you to join their 5000 groups/applications, etc.
    From now on, I’m just saying no, as you say!
