What kind of children would not allow their father to friend them on Facebook?
Speaking purely theoretically, I cannot even begin to imagine the depth of ingratitude of two children who would both put their father on "hold" status as far as his friendship request. As Shakespeare said, sharper than a serpent's tooth....
I, of course, know no one in this situation. But if I did, I would feel quite sorry for him. Especially if he really loved his children and had taken very good care of them when they were young.
And what if he had read to them, and taken them swimming, and taken them on nice vacations, and played with them whenever they wanted, and in general just doted on them? What kind of spiteful little rotters would, when he extended the hand of Facebook friendship, just laughingly turn him down?
It just breaks my heart to think of that poor dad.
I mean, you know, if he actually exists.
