Wherefore Art Thou?

Instant messaging is supposed to be instant. Type a message, hit ENTER, and it’ll end up on the other side just like that.

With instant messaging, you come to expect instant replies. But some people turn on their computers, sign on, and do something else, letting their computer idle away and use nonrenewable energy. They don’t even have the decency to leave an away message to let you know that they’re gone.

Instead, they simply expect you to sit there and wonder if they’re ever going to answer when you have something important (but not important enough to warrant the trouble for phone calls), to talk to them about. That’s just plain rude.

Electronic communications cannot be compared to real life vis-a-vis, but nevertheless, there is nothing more infuriating or depressing than seeing an IM screen with only your unanswered messages.

Talking to your hand.
