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

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,450 People

    If I'm home the PC and TV are usually

    both on, but that doesn't mean I am paying attention to either one. It is probably a bad habit and is certainly a waste of electricity, but I doubt it will change any time soon.

    So it doesn't mean I'm ignoring you

    but please don't keep sending more and more messages if I didn't reply to you the first time, especially if it's only been a few minutes, all it does is annoy me and make me not want to talk to you. And I don't always log out.

    It's Nothing Personal ....

    I've been a member of EP for well over a year now.    So I do often log in.   I confess, I often log in when I'm at work too.     Sometimes it's because I'm having a slow time or maybe I just need a pick-me-up and choose EP instead of caffeine.I log onto many web sites...

    Lots to Do Here

    I could be on the phone, responding to emails, talking to the neighbour, or talking to a calf in my yard. Sometimes I could be working between stories or feeding myself.

    Drat, I Did It Again!

    Once again, I've returned to my computer after several hours to discover that I left myself logged on to EP. I only intended to be gone for a minute, but became involved with other things. That would not be a problem, except that to friends, it appears I am here. I feel so bad...

    ... or Mac, in my case!

    ;-) I frequently forget (or, to be honest, just don't bother) to log off when I get up from my desk to go do other things, so please don't take offense if it looks like I'm on but I don't respond. I'm probably away and haven't seen your message! :-) This is particularly true...

    Don't think I'm ignoring you.

    I often stay logged in on my phone and tend to have lots of tabs open at once no matter what device I'm on. I"m flighty like that ...... ;)

    Day By Night

    Oh I'm pleased we have this group,

    ✏️ 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.

    I work long and sometimes weird hours at home

    and online. My computer is hardly ever offline lol. However I keep crossing back and forth from my work, back to EP so if I don't reply straight away don't take it personally, but I promise to respond. If I ever need complete privacy then I always log off :)

    Then, we're probably not going to get along long term anyway! I have a life... A real one, other online obligations and desires, and sometimes I am still signed on because I don't want to sign out and back on again! At least now EP allows us to show different options when signed...

    Quite Often - There Is Nobody Here!

    I have two iMacs running.

    One for office work and one for my music studio. I also have an iPhone and one iPad. I have a tendency to forget to log out. Suddenly I'm asleep and people think I'm wide awake. I'm not.

    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
