e-mails and IM
 
Ya know, I really don't care to talk to people via e-mail or IM, unless there is something specific to talk about. I find AIM annoying (primarily because I have to minimize my browser window on my home desktop to see the freakin' IM window).

If I'm talking to someone via e-mail about an event, then that's fine. But if the e-mail or IM exchange is simply a back-and-forth of random chat or small talk, I lose interest immediately.

I think some people probably feel I'm rude because of this, i.e., I may not write much in a response to their friendly e-mail or IM.

I'm just thinking out loud here......

I have to use MSN all the time because my fiance and best friend both live in England. In fact, I don't have any friends AT ALL within a 12 hour drive's radius, so I have to rely on email and IM's to stay even remotely social. :reject:

My hometown is 450 miles away...all my friends are still back in that area. We all get together on MSN and chat though...sometimes my sister is online too. However, my MSN name is almost never my real name, so she always claims I'm a stranger pretending to be her sister and just keeps typing "LIAR LIAR LIAR" until I can convince her it's me.

Does she ever think to look at my email address?? :der: :laugh: :heart:

Alrighty then, that's your personal preference, pub crawler, whatever works for you :shrug:

I personally am addicted to MSN Messenger, because I have U2 friends from all over the world and it's the easiest way for me to communicate with them. Plus I can still keep up the appearance of work :shifty: I just leave it on in the background while I'm working. Web sites like here take up more of my attention and so I can't be on them all day, otherwise I'd get NO work done, get fired and have to move into a van down by the river. . .

May I also take this opportunity to say fellow Messenger addicts may contact me at sarahherr@hotmail.com ;)

IM is the greatest invention ever.

I used to be addicted to AIM....

but now I just use msn and even not that much...I think the last time I used it was when my computer needed help and I bugged my brother.

I feel weird just iming people at random, I feel like I'm bugging them or something.

I love using email and AIM...but like Daisy said, I feel weird about just popping in on someone because I don't know if they're already engaged in conversation and don't want to be bothered.

I have MSN messenger but I've never used it...I don't know why :shrug:

hahaha! :D



I should add that what it comes down to is that I would rather talk to someone over the phone than on IM (or text messaging). e-mail is okay most of the time.

Hell, if someone wants to talk to me via IM I'd rather call them. I'd be happy to pay for the call even if I don't know them that well.

I just don't want to go back and forth on IM. Ya save a lot of time that way and you don't have to worry about having the right smilies in your message so that they understand your tone.

hmmm, I don't do AIM and I don't use the MSN messenger thing. I just don't know how to use it and besides if they need to write to me, just email or call. That's just me. :p
