I am known to have the most horrible phone etiquettes. That is what prompted a friend to use such morbid analogies. I know it's very confusing. Let me begin by explaining... So, I have this habit. Where I just ignore my gadgets. I don't care to read my messages. Of such a crime, I have high percentages. The most memorable messages of my life. I've read after a year when from slumber I did arise. That's just the average time. Of this, my repetitive crime. There have been birthday messages on Facebook. That I responded to in nine months, it took. Important messages and invitations. I've missed attending some real celebrations. True, I was never really into social media. Unlike most people, that ain't my Wikipedia. I just recently created my Insta and Twitter accounts. Until then, an inactive Facebook account is all I had, that too renounced. It's the same with text messages and WhatsApp. I don't even care to look until a six month gap. That includes important messages concerning application for a passport. Until the cops had to personally call me to submit my character report. Especially if it's a forward, I really don't care. My precious time to waste and spare. Personal messages, I tend to prioritize. Even with my closest friends, this activity I minimize. Because otherwise all your life will go away messaging. And that my friend, is extremely irritating. So, just once in a month or two, I sit to scan. And reply to the ones I should and have at hand. It does not imply that I don't care. It just means at a screen I don't wish to stare. A good friend pointed out this quality. About my aversion to using technology. And then he said the funniest thing. That had me in splits laughing. He asked me, "Is this what goes on in your brain when you see my texts? Is there nobody in this guy's life that's left? Are all the people dead in your life? Don't you have friends, family, a job or wife?" These words just cracked me up. And I promised him then itself I'd do a write up. He's a very good friend and I've known him since school days. When we were learning the Alphabet and how to write essays. So because you understand, this one's for you. You get my idiosyncrasies that only a few. Are all the people in your life dead? Is that the question that pops in your head? RM, you are a hoot and so damn witty. Almost everything you say makes me laugh so quickly!
