A Newry woman has told Newry Spud that she felt ‘gutted’ when she recently discovered that a Facebook notification was nothing more than a Candy Crush request from an irrelevant person.
Lisa O’Hare received the Facebook notification overnight. She clicked on it as soon as she woke up, thinking that someone had commented on a photo of her new hair that she had posted before going to sleep.
She told Newry Spud:
“I posted a photo of my new hairdo before I went to sleep because I thought that that would give my friends 7 or 8 hours to comment on how nice it looks. As expected, I woke up this morning to find that I had a notification and so I clicked on it. You can imagine my devastation when it said that I had only received an invitation to play Candy Crush from someone on my Facebook that I really don’t know that well. I’ll be spending the rest of the day sulking like a bitch now. I really don’t know what’s wrong with people – they’re supposed to be my friends.”
The Candy Crush invitation came from Damien Shields, who Lisa added to her Facebook friends three years ago because he commented on one of her friends’ photos.
He told Newry Spud:
“I didn’t do it personally. Candy Crush does it automatically so I’m sorry if I come across as a pain in the arse. Now if you excuse me, I have a game of Candy Crush to get on with so please leave me alone. Thanks.”
