I hope this hasn't been posted here before. I came across it not too long ago and thought it was hilarious.

I'm an adult son whose mother has joined facebook, and I'm trying to find the best way to say, "Mom, I love you, but...no, you cannot be my friend."

Oh Crap. My Parents Joined Facebook.

This site is funny. For some strange reason my son blocked me from his wall.

My mom and grandmother have a tendency of trying to friend every man I ever openly date (as determined by Facebook :P). My grandmother in particular has a tendency to forget that everyone can read what she posts on my wall. As you can imagine, both of the above tend to lead to disaster.

Lol I have my mom as a friend but she already knows that im crazy so shes never surprised. LOL. I have my bf's mom as a friend and I really really dont like her so I make status's about her all the time hoping she will read it and erase herself out of my life. Never seems to work. :'(

From my mother's sweet little eyes? Plenty!

She still thinks of me as an angel, and I'd like to keep it that way.

I would just flat out tell her that you just don't add family to facebook, that's it's a private part of your life.

Lots and lots of reasons.
Even more reasons to not add your grandmother either.
