Instant Messaging, wonderful and horrible at the same time.
The next time I meet a nice girl, which was last week-end,
I AM NOT GOING TO GET OR GIVE A SCREEN NAME. Because once
you have that, all is lost and annoying. You always know
where each other are, you don't talk in person or even on
the phone, you'll just im, and be in weird little im world.
But, you can all assume the rest of this paragraph, so I"m
gonna start a new one.
Things I hate about IM, and away messages.
1. People who use the standard away messages "I'm away
from my computer right now, and am not a creative person,
so maybe I'm jumping off a bridge right now, but you'll
never know because my away message is generic and useless."
2. PEOPLE WHO GET PISSED OFF WHEN I USE ALL CAPS. HEY
NOW, I'M AN ARCHITECTURE DRAWING GUY, I DO ALL MY STUFF IN
CAPS, WHY WHEN I'M HONORING YOU ALREADY BY TALKING TO YOU
SHOULD YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT MY TYPING IN CAPS. NO I AM NOT
YELLING AT YOU ARE MAKING A STRONG POINT, I JUST DON'T FEEL
LIKE HITTING CAPS EVERYTIME I SWITCH WINDOWS.
3. People, who in their away messages, use those little
code things, like %%n that will insert your SN or the time
into their away message. "Hi, JackAss27, you messaged me
at 9:87pm, but I am away from my computer right now. So
leave your name and number JackAss27, and I'll get back to
you sometime after 9:87pm, or whenever I finish playing
What really pisses me off about these people, is that they
think it is cool and clever, and oh so neat.
4. People who don't IM, but expect to be IMed. You run
into them in person, and they are like, "Hey, why haven't
you IMed me lately!" Why haven't you ever IMed me ya
5. People who get mad at you because you don't respond
because your not at the computer and haven't put up an away
CantTakeaClue27: Hey, what's up.
CantTakeaClue27: Yo, you there.
CantTakeaClue27: Are you mad at me or something?
CantTakeaClue27: Hey, I know your there.
CantTakeaClue27: You don't have up an away message.
CantTakeaClue27: You should put one up if your away.
CantTakeaClue27: Are you there.
CantTakeaClue27: I need to ask you something.
CantTakeaClue27: Fine, be that way jerk.
CantTakeaClue27: I'm gonna poison your coffee.
6. People who use the phrase "Bling the cell yo."
7. People who give exactly where they will be all day.
9am Going to History Class
10am Going to Biology Class
11.30 grabbing lunch with my mom
12.30 going to the book store
12.45 taking a crap
1pm changing my away message to:
3pm, at the gym
5pm studying at the rue
10pm, movie with Tim
12pm, sex with Tim
8. People who IM you and have nothing to say.
SexyJeff: hey, what's up.
10 minutes later
BlubberBall: You still there.
9. People who pretend to be other people. This really
pisses me off, especially if they are pretending to be
someone you are really close with. That is just not cool.
Worse is when they try to get you to admit stuff. So, do
you like that girl Betty (which is me, but you don't know,
10. ...It smells like fish in here....
11. People who leave their im on when they go on
vacation. And proclaim it in their away message. Hey,
going to the beach, back thursday." Good, now I know I can
rob your house easily in the next few days. And I'll turn
all the lights you probably left on off too, you earth
killing fiend. Though I do find it fun to see how long
people have been away, buddy has been idle for 4 days and
27 hours...pretty cool to see.
12. People who will only talk intamatly on IM. They tell
you all their problems, and life story, and loves and
hates, but when you see them in person, they don't say a
word to you.
13. When people you don't like come up to you when your in
the coffee shop, and demand you put them on your buddy list
right there. So then they IM you all the time, or if you
never IM them will get all sad and offended and realize you
don't like them, and I get annoyed at people making me feel
bad for not liking them.
14. People who quote poems and songs in their away
messages and profiles. A single line or something isn't
bad "Rock the Casba" but when they put down a whole friggin
peom or long pieca crap that happens to move them at the
moment, that's annoying and non informative.
15. Parents who use IM. I now have to censor all my away
messages, and talk in code because my parents might message
me and see what I'm up to. So no "Hey fuckers, I"m at the
Boot getting plastered, come join in!" must be translated
to "Howdy guys, out enjoying myself at that pizza place
next to campus, stop on by."
I could go on forever...but I think I'll stop for now.
Hope you enjoyed
Message me with what you love or hate, and maybe I'll put
up a list that ya'll made
