Notice to One Word Texters
Have you ever had a text conversation with someone who hit you with one word replies? How do you feel about it? I think it is safe to say it’s pretty annoying. Say you’re asking someone how they are doing and their reply is “good”, now that isn’t so bad because they answered your question. Ok, say you reply back to them with something like… “I’m glad that you’re good, what you are up to right now?” and they reply by saying “nothing”.
[INSERT STALE FACE HERE]
I am going to be frank and say that shit is annoying AF and calls for AUTOMATIC DELETION. I don’t feel like I’m being rude or ridiculous either. I feel you are being rude for not asking how I am doing first off. Then have the nerve not to contribute to the conversation I am trying to spark. Now you’re making me feel like you aren’t interested and I should just move around.
Sometimes I give people the benefit of doubt and assume that I am the problem. Maybe I am not doing a good enough job engaging them in conversation. So I would give it one more shot and tell them how my day was and a quick rundown about my day. I do all of this just to get a reply as such as “that’s cool”.
Yeah you guessed it. I terminated that conversation and moved on with my day. Needless to say I felt as if they weren’t interested in texting so why bother.
Then I wonder… why even reply to a text if you don’t feel like texting? Just ignore the message. You’re better off doing that then giving some dry replies.
You may be wondering “What if they don’t like to text?” That may be true and I’ve been in situations where the person doesn’t like to text and prefer to talk over the phone.
I also have been in situations where the person couldn’t keep a good conversation texting or over the phone. So I’ll just be sitting there like… WTF [Insert Stale Face] and then I politely ended the call, because the days of just sitting on the phone with dead silence was over for me in Jr. High.
