Its so difficult to keep in touch with people these days.

Earlier there used to be one landline where you could make & return calls (unless its a girl’s hostel where you could never get through & sent up flares & telegrams instead).

Now we have landline,office extension,gmail,office mail id,cellphone,twitter,facebook, whatsapp,BBM,gtalk & facebook messenger. If a person has 2 or more mobiles, then even more confusion. So if you send someone an sms, that person sends you a DM on twitter. You post on their wall & they reply on gmail. You send a whatsapp msg & they reply on your office mail id. This basically means that you spend all your day checking FB,twitter,gmail,gtalk,sms,whatsapp,BBM etc. to ensure that you ‘stay in touch’. God forbid you miss replying to that bitch from school’s ‘Hey whats up?’. So what if you still cannot stand her. Now you cannot even forget to wish your KG school teacher’s neighbour’s dog a very happy birthday as well.

Who said its easy staying in touch in today’s world!

  1. Too many platforms, I agree. I miss the time when we only had landlines.:)

    • True, though the last time I had a landline, I had to share it with 44 other girls 😛

  2. It is exhausting. For some reason I just gave up wishing people happy birthday on FB just for the heck of it. Feels lot better.

    • Really? I feel all guilty if I don’t wish someone on their birthday or anniversary or their dog’s birthday or whatever if its on FB & staring out at me whenever I log on

      • Isnt it better is wish on call? As it is people have stopped replying to the wall-full posts that get. They just write a one liner thanking everyone. People like that as a “you are welcome”

        • I don’t call everyone on their bday. I only call/ mail close friends. Though I do think, the person who has been wished should take the effort to thank everyone individually (even if he gets to it after a couple of days) and not put a general thank you message

    • I have this compelling OCD thing to wish people 1st on their FB page. I just can’t stop doing that. I know some people hate me for that 😦 Being in NZ and in one of the first time zones doesn’t help, it adds to the problem! I should just try giving up once maybe.

  4. For an anti-social person, who doesn’t like getting close to too many people I agree with each word of what you’ve written. Remembering and keeping a track is such a hassle, I am always in awe of those who unfailing manage to do all this and more with ease.

  5. Ya its become too complicated I would say. I dont wish everyone on fb. I just wish some good friends and people i would care about. 🙂 Even if i see it popping up that its their bday – i just ignore.

  6. Tell me about it! Sometimes I just cannot keep up anymore. Especially nowadays. Also have you notice that people will still wish you on fb even if they have wished you personally or on the phone?

    Just call me 'A'

    • I often do that too!!! Wish over the phone & on FB. It depends on my relation with the person.
