Facebook Is Second Cousin To Family Trees

| Belgium | Cousins, Parents & Guardians

(I am teaching my mother how to use Facebook, and am using my account to explain everything.)

Me: “So over here you can see who wants to be your friends, though you only should add people you know.”

Mom: “Why would people add friends they don’t know?”

Me: “I don’t know, because they want to scam them or something? See, here? There is a friend request from someone I have never met or recognize, so I will just ignore her request like so—” *moves mouse to the ignore button*

Mom: “Euhm… [My Name], that’s your cousin.”

Me: “What? I don’t have a cousin called [Name].”

Mom: “Yes, you do; she’s the youngest daughter of [Dad’s Sister]. She is a year older than [Brother]. You guys went to the same primary school.”

Me: “What? I thought she was called [Uncle’s Last Name].”

Mom: “No, he’s not their father. [Aunt]’s first husband is.”

Me: “Ah, I’ll better add her, then, or we won’t hear the end of it at family gatherings.”
