My wife finally convinced me to join facebook. I've been telling her all along that it's stupid and pointless, but she was on me about it so I figured it was unfair to judge without really seeing it. Sure enough, I was right. It's stupid. Anyway, to top off the general stupidity of it, random people I don't know tend to send me "friend invites". I generally blow them off, but this one was one my wife felt was a nice person who was friends with many of her friends... so why not? fine... I begrudgingly accept the invite. Not more than an hour or so later, she starts asking me questions... Now I'm kind of a privacy guy... I don't think people need to really know details about my life or anyone elses, unless it happens to be necessary. And she's like asking me "So where do you live?" I check with my wife and am like "Um, should I be telling this woman where I live?" I figure... anyone who is a friend is a friend, right? Should be ok, I suppose. She's not asking my blood type. Note to self: don't ask my wife for tips on privacy issues. So anyway I tell her. To be polite, I ask her where she lives. She tells me. Great. Hunkey dorey. Then I get this... "I will be having my second annual St Jude's fund raiser and last year had a photographer donate his time/film to capture the event is that something you would want to do?" Great. Yeah. Some random person I don't know is basically asking me to give them my time and effort to some random cause I know nothing about. I'm sure it's all lovely and wonderful and a big great thing and that's fine. I just really hate it when people have the audacity to not only put someone on the spot about charities, but go a step further and just assume you'll toss in your photography along with it. Bah.
