Alright y’all – I need advice. I joined Facebook a few months ago and like everybody else, quickly became addicted. I’ve found a few old buddies from high school, reconnected with some college pals and keep in touch with a few more relatives than I did before Facebook. It was all good.
Until. My boss sent me a friend request. Why? I just started working for this lady in February. We’re not cool like that. I mean, she’s fine as bosses go – way better than my ex-boss-from-hell, but I don’t want her reading crazy exchanges between me and . . . anybody.
I’ve ignored the request since I got it on Saturday. But I’m thinking it is rude to continue to ignore it which is the advice I’ve gotten from most people.
Can I just tell her – “look, I’d rather keep my personal and professional life separate and I’m not comfortable friending you on FB?” Is that rude? No one I’ve talked to seems to think this is the way to go. My mom and brothers were like friend her, and don’t ever go on FB again. Others have said ignore her request. Care to add your two cents to the mix? Please, head on over to the comments and let me know what you’d do if you were in my shoes.
Gracias in advance!
