Chat at B.B. when he's busy!
I finally joined. Only way to keep in contact with a friend who can't reply to e-mail for some reason
He's on FB but can't email? Something is not right with that story...
Oh, there's a method to his laziness. He's explained it to me
See, on Facebook, one is able to login and gain access to all one's friends with a single click. Further, Facebook's interface encourages very brief correspondence. Thus, my friend says it's easy to remain in touch with everyone via one point of contact and he says he can write shorter (hence, more useless) messages to his friends. This saves him much more time and thus allows him to keep in more frequent contact with the rest of us.
Of course, he fails elaborate upon the ancillary benefit of this Facebook system, which I know applies directly to him. You see, this particular friend of mine has a very unique and incredibly annoying personality quirk: he has, what I have coined, a "social quota." Once he reaches his social quota for a given time period (let's say a week), he wants no more social interaction for that time period. Technology, it seems, has finally caught up with my friend and thus Facebook is a method by which he can control his social exposure on his terms
And before you ask, don't ask. He really is a great guy, but we've just all come to accept him the way he is. His wife is a saint.
