Some of my friends in google talk does not respond. When I say friends, its because google says so. We can’t add as non-friends or not-even-near-friends etc right? So lets just call them friends. They are colleagues from my previous company, current company, some are from college, or friends back from school. Oh and some are relatives as well, and some, well I don’t remember them.
Coming back to the post, some does not respond, may be they dont like me. Well I don’t respond to some as well, that’s mainly because I don’t remember who they are. 🙂 and yet another reason is I get confused with the similar names and weird orkut names some use like (Manchester United won or India Wins Gold). To make things worse they have weirdest of email ids, like mine.
So here is one conversation with Friend A.
Sent at 2:05 PM on Sunday
Me: hey? Are u there?
Sent at 2:35 PM on Sunday
And then there is no response.
Then come another friend B online.
Me: Hey man how are you?
Sent at 11:15 PM on Thursday
Me: Are you there?
Sent at 11:24 PM on Thursday
And then I see friend A online, I did not bother to renew my friendship again. So I carry on with blogging and chats with my REAL friends.
Then I get the following message via google talk.
Friend A : Hey heard you bought a car.
Me : Yes.
Friend A : congrats.
Me : Thanks, but the bank still owns it.
Friend A : hehe, hows your wife?
Me : Good. How are you?
Friend A : Good. Hey am going onsite this week. I am so lucky. I am so happy.
And then he continues to explain how many states, Unites States of America has and their population and how good his manager is and blah blah.
When this happened, I was wondering whether people wanted everyone to know their happiness or achievements? May be I am right, because I wrote a post when I bought a car.
But it did not end there.
Few days back I got another message from Friend B.
Friend B : hey man.
Me : heyy how are u?
Friend B : how is work?
Me : Not bad. Yours?
Friend B : Well I am going onsite.
Now I get the logic. What say guys?
I think people want to share their happiness more than anything else. When there is nothing interesting happening in their life they tend to shy away from the rest of the world, when things are good they want everyone to know.
I don’t know about me, I tend to blog when things are good. When things are ugly, I blog. May be I blog too much. To Google ‘Friend’ A and B, happy journey!
