help.. how do others cope.

July 9, 2008 5:27am CST
do others find it stressful, or is it just me? I can go online, maybe 10+ online and most of them will message me, expecting instant response or will nudge several times for attention (nudges now disabled).. Yes i can reply to say i am busy talk later.. but then asking many questions, why, when talk and so on grrrrrr. How do people manage? I try to go in, in busy or away status but this don't seem to help, no one takes any notice of the status and will STILL spam with messages and nudges. Then even worse if in meantime more come online and begin to send messages. Sometimes seems that i must be only one in their contact list, i wish would talk others too, so i can.. lol If msn open, all time has to be focused on that.. Do anyone else get the same? what u do, use block and unblock lol or just ignore some.. At times offline seems to be the only answer but cant send files or open cam offline. Just thing some people need to chill out..

Its very stressful and a real pain in the *** lol best thing ive found is just to turn the volume off and pick the people you want to speak to and reply to them 1st give it a try

Wow, that's quite an opposite reaction from mine. I don't usually have friends talking to me when I'm online even though I have 200 over friends. I always had to start the conversation off them. Maybe you can go online and ignore their conversations. Just minimise the windows. Then reply them after a long while. After some times, they would lose their patience and don't expect instant replies from you.
