Todd Won't Be My Friend

May 19, 2010 @ 22:58

I was clicking around facebook last night and I went into that area where you accept friends.

Since the playoffs started I've received a lot of "friend" requests. It seems I'm not the only Hab hater in the world. But that's not what this is about.

This is about Todd Shapiro, the Todd part of the Dean Blundell Show.

Todd's a good fella, I've known him for more than ten years now. He came to the Edge as a Humble and Fred intern a couple of years before we made the brilliant decision to try talk radio on the AM band.

Anyway, while I was in the facebook area where you accept friends, I got the notification that I might want to be the friends of several other people, and on the list was Todd.

I was surprised because I thought Todd was already my friend. I just assumed that since I joined facebook two years ago that somewhere along the line Todd and I would have become friends. I was wrong, so naturally I clicked on the tab that said "send request."

Well slap my ass and call me Henry, guess what happened? A message came bouncing back immediately that said "Sorry, this user already has too many friends."

What the fuck does that mean? How can you have too many friends on facebook? I mean really, what does it matter whether your have 49 friends, or 49 hundred like Todd does? It's not like you have to invite everybody over to your goddman house for dinner.

It goes without saying you can have too many real friends. Friends that actually have your phone number and are bugging you to do stuff all the time. And there are those people who you meet casually face to face and they show way more interest in being your friend than you do in being theres.

But facebook friends? Give me a goddamn break. I have about 750 friends and I haven't made a commitment to any one of them. Sure there are family and friends who are my facebook friends, but I'd have to deal with them whether they were facebook friends or not.

Todd's a good guy and everything, but does he really think that by allowing me to be his facebook friend he's going to have to service me in some way?

Maybe I'm not aware of all the facebook rules. Maybe your not allowed to have more than 4975 friends, that's what Todd has. Maybe that's the limit. Maybe he'd like to be my friend but facebook won't allow it.

Then again, maybe there is some kind of a limiter or monitor that Todd controls. For all I know maybe he's complied a list of people that he doesn't want to be his friends and for some reason I'm on the list. Maybe he's a Hab fan. I don't know.

What I do know is that its pretty weird when you click on the "send request" button and it tells me that Todd Shapiro has too many friends.

Todd, the nice young fella who wandered into the Humble and Fred studios so many years ago wanting to be a radio star. At the time we thought, fat fuckin' chance. But look at him now. One of the most popular guys in the city.

And he doesn't have room to be Freddie P's friend.

What gives ya pecker!

I wear Crocs and call centers are a pain in the ass.







Hey Freddie. Just got this e-mail in response to our conversation about foreign call centres.... McArthur

Just a little story. I was having trouble with my Bell express-vu satellite dish and called for help in July and was told to clean the snow off of my dish. I was enraged and as a result changed to cable.... Patricia Collins
