The Busybody of Today!

Why do some people always make the promise of keeping in touch only to disappear from the phase of this earth never to be found again??
One of the biggest ironies!!
I unfortunately know some. Their favourite lines are:
"I am so sorry I have been busy, will call u back"
"Oh I was just thinking I should call you"
"I am a little busy, will definitely call you back"
The funniest one is " I was just talking to him/her about you" (Yeah, I was born yesterday to buy that crap!)
It is quite disheartening when you take the pain to constantly keep them in the loop, update them on your personal life, leave offlines and e mails and never ever get a response.
Everyone today love to use work as their biggest alibi for not having time for others. That is just so lame! Most of them dont realize that what goes around comes around. In such things, age, profession, geographical distance really DO NOT make a difference. It is such a happy feeling to catch with someone after a break, i have always enjoyed such converstaions and e mails. One of my closest friends, She stays like a few million miles away, and I am so proud of the fact that we practically know what each other is upto almost every single week. No, it is not because we do not have a social life or a career. Another ironic fact that i have observed is that you are more in touch w/ people who are the farthest in terms of distance than the ones in the same city!
Why on earth is that!?
Anyways its not like this post would make any difference to anyone of them! lol
For those who are reading this, hope you are hale and hearty wherever you are.
And for the nth time,.. Be in touch. :)


  1. i know exactly what you mean!! thank you for this post because i was beginning to think i'm an over demanding ,attention seeking, possessive freak for expecting people to keep in touch with me.. not long phone conversations or meeting up but just keeping me in the loop!!! gosh its not too much to ask for is it?!?

  2. about universal sensibilities.
    This is one subject i can probably write a whole encyclopedia about.
    And am also happy to note, that "I too" am not the "only" one who agrees with you..
    I'm going to take this up in little more detail in a few days so watch this space for more!


I would love to hear from you!
