Join the Club


"You know, there is a way to stop getting these group invites," said my husband.


"Stop going on Facebook," he said.

"I can't do that," I replied.

"Why not?"

"Because then I wouldn't know what stupid Facebook groups my friends are all joining."

He sighed and left the room. But the issue gnawed at me. Every time I went on Facebook, I was being bombarded by invites. In the past 24 hours, I got invites to "People Who Suffer from the Fear that Somewhere, Somehow, a Duck is Watching You," "Gnomes are People, Too," and the somewhat relatable "I Use the Word Thingy When I Forget What It's Called," which is a group I might actually join. It got to the point where I was so busy deleting group requests that I almost didn't have time to tell all my friends I secretly prefer camels with one hump.


"You know, all these invites got me thinking," I finally said to my husband. "I decided I'm going to start my own Facebook group."

"What is it?" he asked.

"People on Facebook Who Hate Facebook Groups."
