So today I got yet another follower on Twitter. Whenever I see one that is following a few hundred people and who has tweeted less than 5 times, I go take a look. I usually find that they're an attractive young lady who uses their favourite bikini beach shot for their profile picture, and that their only tweet is something like:
Need strong man to keep me satisfied all night every night.
Of course, that's paraphrased a bit, but you get the idea. They're young, attractive, and horny for Excel knowledge.
While I'm flattered that these people think I'm a "strong man", they obviously haven't done much research. I'm a bony armed accountant for crying out loud! All my muscle mass comes from moving around packages of paper, pushing a pencil, and typing. Not exactly a body builderâ€¦ unless you consider developing a belly is "building".
The second thing that amuses me about this is that, while I do talk a lot, I think I might run out of things to say about Excel after a couple of all nighters. Yeah, it's my favourite appâ€¦ and I do like to think I know a lot about it, but stillâ€¦ I have limits.
Now I'd hate to not be able to perform, and I'm worried it would damage my confidence. So with thoughts of protecting my self esteem from being ruined, I block them from following me.
So question to youâ€¦ when you get one of those do you block them, or no?
