This is something that has been annoying me for quite a while now, so bear with me if I get a bit carried away.
I seem to have the whole world and it’s dog on my msn list which consists of real life friends, friends from Germany, workmates, my housemates, ex housemates, people I know from Xbox Live and forums and some people from other websites. So it’s a big group of verydifferent people. I tried having several msn accounts, but gave up on that idea, as it was just too much hassle.
Maybe this is just me, but I don’t tend to initiate an msn convo with anyone, unless I have a set reason to talk to them, for example asking a question, asking how they are or just catching up (with real life friends). I have maybe 10 people that I tend to talk to every day. There are reasons why I talk to them and I don’t mind. They are generally on my other IM accounts as well.
Now what really annoys me are people that start talking to me on msn for no real reason. They are generally people I couldn’t care less about and the conversations are generally:
NAME says (18:14): good evening
Cat ftw says (18:14): Hey.
NAME says (18:15): how was your christmas?
Cat ftw says (18:15): Not too bad, how was yours?
NAME says (18:15): yeah not bad at all thanks
Cat ftw says (18:15): Good.
NAME says (18:16): so how have you been?
Cat ftw says (18:16): Can’t really complain. What about you?
NAME says (18:17): fine thanks
NAME says (18:17): same old really
Cat ftw says (18:17): That’s not too bad then.
Cat ftw says (18:18): What can I do for you?
And that was the entire conversation. Completly pointless, a complete waste of time. There are so many people that just say Hi and that’s it. What is the point? Why bother?
Talk to me, because you have something to talk about or tell me. Or maybe, because you need my help or opinion. Don’t just say ‘Hi, how are you?’ for no reason. I don’t have the time or patience for that and if you think you do, maybe you should consider doing something better for that.
Thanks for reading this. :)
