This is a question Social Networking Gaffes

Freddy Woo writes, "My school bully just friended me on Facebook!" No doubt he pokes him, and then demands his lunch money.

Personally, last month a scantily clad young woman confused me with her fiance, with whom I share a first and last name. I'm still not sure she's noticed, but she's going to be mortified when she does.

What's the biggest mistake you've made using a social networking site?

I don't use the internet, so here's a real life gaffe
Like the time working behind a bar in a busy venue (The Wildhearts were playing, I got to see them for free, which is nice)a guy came up to the bar, wearing shades. [I have a nasty habit of never thinking before I speak, plus, it was a rock venue, people wear shades indoors to look cool*]

The shades were rather swish too, so I commented on them saying "nice shades", I got his drink for him, and put it on the bar in front of him, and said the price, and he didn't get his wallet out, or hand me money, obviously with The Wildhearts on in the background, my voice would have been drowned out, so I repeated myself, a little louder, and over enunciating the words so not having to rely on hearing me say the price. Still, The Wildhearts being noisy feckers, my voice was drowned out, and he stood there, the gentleman was stood slightly away from the bar, half watching the band, so I leaned over and waved in front of his face to try and get his attention.

It was at this point his carer came over and berated me for mocking the blind.

*I think that wearing shades indoors makes you look a twat**

**Unless you are blind, and therefore perfectly acceptable

Did you ever get paid for the drink though?

I felt quite bad about it
So I paid for it out of my tips

I've had a great idea
For a scam to get free beer!

Well, I don't wear them at night to look cool (or because I'm blind)
I wear them so I can watch you weave, then breathe your story lines. And I wear my sunglasses at night so I can, so I can keep track of the visions in my eyes.

clearly deaf as well then?
what a scam.

TBH i did a similar thing once. Asked this guy repeatedly if he had finished with his glass (never just pick it up and some old goat will claim that bit of lemon and an ice cube is in fact a gin and tonic)

Shouting over the disco i bawled "IS THAT GLASS DEAD?" when the woman next to him said "take it, he's deaf"

Hearing aid in the other ear and foot firmly in mouth.
