Get over yourself...you're not that fucking important.

I'm one of those people. I'll look at a text and respond immediately if I'm not busy at the moment. But if I'm doing something, I'll put it off. Then I either continue to be busy for the rest of the day or just forget about it. If it was something really important, I probably would have made the time or not forgotten.

So basically...quit being a bitch.

also, take the fucking hint that when your text was ignored that means "no" or "not worth responding"

did i strike a nerve

anyways, i understand putting it off and forgetting, but it's right there in the history. most people say "forgot to answer your text, blah blah". generation gap?

I got a text from my sister this morning but was getting in the shower

then I meant to respond to her on the way to work, but left my phone at home

went to lunch in cary and picked my phone up afterwards

finally returned her text at 1:30

my phone stays on silent. fuck it. I'll get back to you when I get back to you.

as bogus as this excuse sounds, i've legitimately forgot to answer texts before, but that accounts for only about 5% of my non-responses.

it's pretty easy to read people's opinion of you these days. If they want to communicate with you, they will text back. Everyone has their phone within an arms reach for about 95% of their day if not more, especially women.

if somebody texts me a question or something requiring a response on my part, i always reply. it seems like common courtesy...especially since it takes no time to type a response.

that said, i don't drop what i'm doing and check my phone every time i get a text.

I dont think adultswim is talking about situations where you're too busy.

It's when you're trying to make plans. I get, you're waiting for your other plans to fall through before you respond. In that case, fuck yoou too. Im not waiting around.

I'm terrible at charging my phone and so are most of my friends so after like 9pm its basically 50/50 whether or not anyone will respond to a text or if you can even call.

I'm Krallum and I approved this message.

some people just don't take this kind of thing as seriously.

i can be careless about returning texts, and so can some of my friends. if i text them something i want a reply to and don't get one, i just text them again. *shrug*

For my job I have to answer texts and emails almost immediately. If I dont then it's not important and I don't care.

So bc of this if I text or email someone and they don't respon in 15-30min then what I'm asking or want must not be important to them and then I normally ignore them when they want something.

Life's a beeeeetch

if people leave you hanging and you know they are ignoring you, stop talking to them altogether until they ask what's up...most times they never ask, so you get to move on with your life with less hassle.

It depends on what the text is. If it's a question or something that actually needs a response, then yeah I think it's rude to completely ignore it and then text about something different the next day. Nobody is that fucking busy that they can't respond to a direct question in a 24 hour period. They're either an asshole or not that good of a friend.

If it's just a random picture or comment, then no response isn't a big deal.

This.


But also, I am very spacey. I have a bad habit of having a conversation with someone then just disappearing and responding like over a week later. Sometimes I'm legitimately concerned about my attention span then I remember the times where I will block out everything else just to find out what type of weird bug was flying in my house, or why my fax machine prints backwards. Maybe that's a sign of something else.


Anyway, if I don't text back it doesn't mean I don't love you. I guess I don't have to tell you this, adultswim, because you know me

Maybe they are too fucking busy to respond to some bullshit text you sent.
