Hidden in that “other” category of personal messages on my Facebook account, I found this note left by a hunky-looking guy named Alex last week:

Creepy, right?

Now I’m just too freakin’ tired for this kind of crap.

  1. I’m just glad most of us are now experienced enough to recognize this stuff for what it is. I remember getting strange emails from women I didn’t know, and being completely confused by them. Now I hit Delete without a second thought.
