I am one of those generations where my childhood was VHS tapes, playing outside, home phone, bulky computers, and BackStreet Boys. I still remember the time where I would talk for hours on the landline (cause it is far more cheaper and my friends and I doesn’t have our own phones at that age).
Now, at 20 years old, I see how our mobile phones had grown; from those flip phones to touchscreen smartphone. Our way of communication has changed too. Sending text messages that cost 20 cents each to practically free now via Whatsapp.
And that lies the problem. It seems that we do not know how to communicate effectively. Call, not text when the topic is something serious. Personally, I just don’t like solving things such as conflict through text.
I just want to talk about Whatsapp honestly.
You definitely have someone who blueticked you before or you are the one who did that.
The reason I bought up conflicts cause some time ago, I resort to WA to solve something and long story short, I got ignored (both through texts and real life).
And honestly, if you are one who does that, I want you to understand that it takes a lot of courage to send those messages, you know? I know I am at the risk of being ignored but I am still taking that risk because, for some blind reason, at that time, I think you are worth it (that how I felt ages ago, now, nope).
Just imagine this happening in real life, alright. You’re basically denying my existence in front of me and if you don’t think that is rude*, I pray your mannerism get better.
*In the context that we knew each other/are friends, not in the context of a drunken person shouting at you, in the case, you have the right to ignore. Use common sense lah in what I mean here.
So yea, maybe I’m just another millennial being butthurt or what not, this is the 21st century yall, don’t start ignoring a person w/o any reasons. It just made me so fking pissed when I heard of these things happening. *roll eyes*
