This is my rant for tonight…I’m a bit frustrated…
If, on a social network or aim, a person does not wish to talk to someone, they should really just say so. Saying something really short and with no substance like “thanks” or “no problem” or simply “yeah” is rude, because the person receiving the message doesn’t know what to do with that. It’s not clearly stating that the person sending it wants to sever contact, but it doesn’t exactly allow for a response. The receiver is then left in the predicament of how to respond. Should they post back with a message of substance in hopes for a meatier response? Should they not respond and let communication die off? Be clear in what you want! Do you want to converse or not? Let me know.
If you cannot tell by now, I’m in the receiver’s position… So, Ilan, do you want me to stop talking already?
