Happy whatever day you’re reading this day.
Haven’t posted since January because I was on a mission to achieve some professional milestones – needless to say, those milestones were met! So now i can continue with regularly scheduled pettiness.
Today I’d like to address the nonsense that fills my inbox/DMs/text messages on a pretty consistent basis. And i know that i pretty much speak for most people when i say this.
If you text me..or FB inbox me and i don’t respond in the time-frame that you’ve mentally created without my consent…don’t bring that heat to me in the form of a nonsensical inquisition as if i owe you an explanation as to why i haven’t responded.
IN SHORT: I AIN’T WANT TO.
Years ago I had a moment of liberation when i noticed how people literally JUMP to answer their phones…sometimes running to answer it in fear of missing a call (now if you’re anticipating an important call…thats one thing) but this is not that. This is us either being thirsty for contact, or just personifying pavlov’s dog. So i made the decision there to not answer my phone sometimes when people called…which then turned into reading people’s messages and just not responding right away. I respond when i want. Thats the beauty of preferring texts over phone calls too…I’m not stuck on the phone forcing a conversation that I’ve probably lost interest in at the 00:21 second mark of the call (to absolutely NO fault to the caller)…..*ahem.
***please note – if you’re ever on the phone with me..and i just stop talking…i’m probably over you and the conversation. nothing personal…just a cold hard truth. Step ya talk game up G.
So….in closing…get over yourself. I intentionally read people’s fb messages so they can see that I read it – and then NOT respond – because I’m grown and I do what I want…and you probably didn’t say anything to provoke a response from me…
…….sounds like a personal problem to me.
