Even my Snapchat name, gabberjabber, is different than my Twitter handle. So I went back to deleting my chins, not thinking much of it.
But a few days later, the person who had added me on Snapchat sent me a snap. I held down on the pink box and was startled to see a selfie of a teenager. I had never seen this kid before in my life. Note: Because the kids in these photos are underage, their faces have been obscured. I shrugged it off at first, thinking my little sister had just passed my Snapchat name off to some her friends. This Snapchat add must have been something that just comes with my cool big bro status, I thought.
The snap was probably just a selfie blast to everyone the young girl had added. But then things started getting weird.
While the original girl who had added me on Snapchat kept sending me selfies or inane photos of things like grass, even more youngsters started Snapchatting me. They looked like they were between the ages of 10 and 13, and I could see they were sending me snaps from rural areas. Most people use Snapchat to send embarrassing photos to their friends, or to flirt with a new crush by sending self-destructing photos of their genitalia. Some of us even use Snapchat to message our exes.
But apparently, I had started using Snapchat and found myself befriending a bunch of random tweens, without even realizing it. At first, it clearly started out as a case of mistaken identity. I tried to figure out what exactly was going on. I was enraged. No, I did not know who this child was; and no, I was not Gabby. I started to feel disrespected by this year-old.
So I finally told him that I was not his friend Gabby. He apologized and I asked him to tell other friends of Gabby that they had the wrong Snapchat username for her. And all the snaps of what looked like a rural country landscape made me think tween snapchat names probably all lived miles away from each other. How did they know Gabby? Did they see her often IRL? My hypothesis was that these kids had met Gabby at some sort of summer camp or youth function and only swapped Snapchat names instead oflike how members of my generation would just exchange AIM screen names and chat online.
But I did know this: Even after I tried to set the record straight with that year-old, the snaps continued unabated. So I began letting them know that I was not this Gabby person and that I was, in fact, a something man who would like these Snapchats to stop. This process has mainly involved me responding back to their selfies with another selfie, confirming my identity as a non-youth who would like them to cease and desist with their barrage of peace selfies. At times, I thought about asking these kids questions about their lives. I wondered what their favorite pizza toppings were, or what they thought about Ariana Grande, or how they thought American foreign policy could be improved.
But I really do hope they find their Gabby.
