Frustration

I don’t have many pet peeves. Most of the time the few I do have don’t even bother me but there are other days they get right under my skin. Then next thing I know something small and petty is driving me up the wall. Today what is bugging me is people who stay on MSN all the time with their status set away.

I’ve done it, but it’s annoying. The level of annoyingness increases because of the 13 hour time difference and my desire to connect to the other side of the world which sleeps when I am awake. FRUSTRATION!

i totally hear you liz. in fact, i stopped being on msn very much because of it. it's SUCH a tease....
that being said, why aren't you on my msn list? ;) i already know a whole lot about being a cheerleader for english teachers in osaka....

I also agree...Why not switch to invisible or....actually sign off? :)

Amy said...

guilty as charged...

I leave it on because I use it as my email notification, not as an instant messenger. That way I don't have to log in and out of hotmail and check to see if I have new mail--I can see whether I do with one click in my toolbar.

so, sorry to be annoying to you :P Hope you're doing well! much love.

That is such an amazing source of frustration. It basically says: "I'm going to be selective about the people that I want to talk to."

grrrr. Aggrivation.

Oh my GOSH I'm soooo with you LIZ. I try to be as honest as possible about my MSN status. if you don't want to talk to people don't add em to your list. And if you are truly "away" then fine, but stop the LYING!!!!

that being said sometimes I do forget to switch my status..lol...

Jo -msn is the same as my email, so can add me. i love being encouraged!

Matt -agreed

Amy -understood, it makes sense but like matt said switching to invisible works. and i still love you

Friend -also agreed

Rachelle -yeah, i forget at times too

matthew said...

btw...you still get email notification when you're in the 'appear offline' (invisible) mode
