Tech News: A Hampshire woman clearly has no intention of attending an event she was invited to on Facebook, despite clicking on the âjoinâ button.
June Glover, from Alton, clicked on the âjoinâ button on the event page for her friendâs 35th birthday, although she clearly has no intention of going.
âI just didnât want to seem rude,â said Glover. âDeclining the invitation would look bad, but then so would ignoring it completely. Iâm sure I can come up with some last minute excuse for not going that I can write on the wall closer to the time.â
Despite accepting the Facebook invitation, a majority of Gloverâs friends remain unconvinced sheâll attend the event either. âShe barley knows the woman,â said one friend.
Friends have also questioned the motives for Glover âlikingâ various things on Facebook. âSheâs just trying to come off as intelligent and sophisticated,â said another friend.
âThe other day she ‘liked’ Radiohead – we get it, youâre into deep, introspective music. It certainly didn’t seem that way last weekend when she was drunk and dancing around her handbag to the The Venga Boys.â
