See above. I don't see it that way. It's not like you never speak to them. My friends and family have also learned that email is a much better way to contact me. As well, I don't expect them to answer my phone calls right then and there; I call, usually, to leave a message.A lot of you guys seem to sound like you're saying you only want friendship or contact with humans when it suits you and your purposes, and like your routines are so damn important you can't interrupt them for a minute to just give someone the courtesy of speaking to them - even if just to ask them to come back later cos you're not up for it right now - when they've made the effort to come to you. Bit rude, and very selfish, IMO.
