This is something that I hate:
Sunday night I went over to my friend's apartment (Brian...one of my accounting friends) for a Super Bowl party. My friend, David, sms'ed me Sunday night. He sent two sms's. I didn't hear the second one come in until I was at Brian's apartment watching the game. It said "...great." And, I realised he sent a sms about a half hour earlier asking me what I was doing for the Super Bowl. I hate the highly sarcastic second sms. He's done this before and it bugs the hell out of me. I'm sorry friend that I didn't hear your sms come in because I always have my mobile on the lowest volume for incoming calls and sms's for the following reasons: 1. I'm at uni 2. I'm at the library 3. I'm at work (like work, work.....job i mean) 4. sleeping So this means I rarely check my mobile phone during the day because I am busy doing something 24/7.
It gets better. When I got home after the Super Bowl party, he instant messaged me on AOL. He first message was asking for a friend's mobile number. The second message said, ".....thanks." Another highly sarcastic, rude comment. Excuse me, but I am sorry if I forgot to put up an away message saying that I was gone. (With AOL Instant Messenger, you make away messages not like MSN where you just change your status to Away, Be right back, etc etc.) My question is why the f*ck don't you have our friend's mobile number in the first place?
In short, one of my pet peeves is people not giving you a chance to respond to messages. I always try to return sms's, instant messages, or voicemails within 24 hours. I'm sorry that I am busying all frickin day going to lectures, doing schoolwork, going to work trying to make some money, sleeping, and eating. It's not exactly by choice that I do these things. If I had my choice, I would have been able to graduate last semester, and I would be on vacation for like 7 or 8 months before having to work in the real world.
On a side note, as you might have been able to infer, I'm life is pretty crazy busy right now. working at my new job, uni, schoolwork, activities, going out occassionally, and sleeping have taken up every second of my life. It sucks because I feel like I have gotten out of touch with some people that I haven't talked to in what seems like forever.
