I May Be Logged In But I Might Not Be In Front of My Pc

    Some people are so rude.

    "Answer now" "respond" Why U hate me?" For crying out loud, I might be eating or the phone might have rung or someone at the door. If you can't be patient, don't bother!

    I tend to do this sometimes,

    especially with my desktop computer. I was once signed in for two weeks, while on a business trip, and came back to a host of messages on Yahoo, including some people who thought that I was ignoring them. I actually had no time to sign into Yahoo, remotely, as I would...

    It Sometimes Takes Me A While To Get Back To Folks.

    During the week, I EP early in the morning with my first cup of coffee and I answer some messages and try to catch up on what  some of my buddies have written.   Then when I get to work, I check to see what hubs has said.  Then  I answer a few more messages, wb, gestures and...

    and even then, I may be logged in, but I may be doing something else at the time.

    I am not always in front of my PC.

    I'll answer my messages as soon as I can. I am either sleeping because it is evening or I'm working.

    Just because I'm on ep doesn't mean I'm really

    ON. I might just be logged in, Christ I might even be on the page and just not paying attention to it, so just because it may seem like I'm on it doesn't always mean I'm on. Ya know?

    ✏️ Ahh … The green light is on,

    and there has been no response. Hm … The pup could need to go out, the phone could be ringing, the come to my revival could have knocked, or how about nature, yes nature, could actually be calling.

    The thing is, I never log out.

    That's why I always show as online. There's no purpose in logging out. I'm to lazy to log back in :D

    That about sums it up.

    I log in and go to do other stuff so if you see me as online but not answering it's not because I'm a rude *****, it's because I'm not actually here. Or you annoyed me.. Just thought I'd throw that out there :p

    Sometimes when I'm connected to the internet,

    EP auto updates and logs me in. And what ****** me off the most is when people message me and then after a while they keep saying "Hellllooo?" or "You there?" Like are you that ******* stupid. I'm not replying.. so that means I'm busy.

    I'm often doing a variety of things (both

    offline and online) when I'm logged in, so you may not get an immediate response from me. I hope you understand that I'm not ignoring you. You'll hear back from me eventually.

    If you message me multiple times saying "Hi"

    or "Hello", you will most likely be ignored. If you ask a question, then follow it up with a "?", then an "Are you ther?" and finally a "Please respond.", and maybe finish it with an "ANSWER!", then you will most likely be ignored/blocked. Just because I was talking one minute...

    i generally have at least five tabs open on my

    computer. browser games, music, typing apps, videos. it becomes quite hectic if i don't pause things. split screen has a maximum of four tabs. i gennerlly have more than five open. and that's just apps like chrome and word that let me use split screen.

    If you have any intentions of hanging around in

    my world. Leave a message and i'll get back to you. Yes it states that i'm currently on. No that indicator is the one that's currently on. Besides i hate having to log in everytime. Password isn't on hand all the time. More in life to attend to besides answering a bell.

    Don't take it personal,

    I actually do it as timesaver. By remaining logged in, I can check in quicker and say "hi" rather than having to wait to log back in. And then there are the times I just plain forget to log out....LOL!
