Florida Man Shot at by "Woman" He Met on Facebook: "Stuff Like That Don't Happen on Twitter"
Oh, you're still complaining about the Facebook redesign? Just be grateful the site didn't lead to you being shot by a man you thought was a woman.
Jacksonville, Florida resident and Twitter enthusiast Christopher Harris had only recently returned to the cold embrace of Mark Zuckerberg's social network and thought he had met a nice girl through the site. When he went to pick her up for a date, though, he was met by a man with a gun and had to escape "James Bond"-style. He's sticking to Twitter from now on.
Harris called cops, but when officers logged onto Facebook, they found that the "woman's" profile had already been deleted.
"I don't even like Facebook. I was on Twitter; then I go back to Facebook for two days and this happens to me and I'm not going back to Facebook," Harris says.
