FaceTime/zoom - am I being miserable?

Posted 11th Apr
Am I really the only person who’s just not interested and would prefer a quick chat/message?

Please tell me I’m not alone 🙈

In fact I’m speaking to people less regularly as there’s only so much you can talk about. The only person I’m making an effort to talk to more regularly is my Grandma, and that’s only because she’s in her 70’s and I’m most concerned for her than anyone else.


Really? We can’t shut you up on here

This really made me laugh. Thank you. Have been feeling a bit bad for deliberately missing the calls

Oh they'll live. If they really cared they'd leave a voicemail, which you can listen to and text back at your leisure just to let them know you're alive and thank them for checking up on you.

Yes totally agree, I’m talking to my grandma most days to check in on her too it’s very isolating for them. But as for everyone else, I have done nothing all day of any interest, so have nothing to say quite honestly

My grandma always say this! “If it’s really important they’ll leave a voicemail or call back”... my dad calls me 8 times in a row until I pick up sometimes and eventually I pick up thinking “well it must be important”... let me tell you... it’s NEVER important

Very dangerous habit. One day he will have something important but his call won't be answered. Just like The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
I'm not a huge video\voice kinda person but we called friends last week and played cards for a few hours and honestly it was great to see and talk to others.

Is all too easy to sit in your own little bubble and ignore the world but sometimes just pushing yourself can pay dividends.

I will say though that also sitting in the lounge in your pants without fear of someone calling or turning up at the door is pretty amazing!

Precisely! But I don’t think I’d forgive myself for not picking up even though it makes my blood boil when he blows up my phone then when I answer casually starts talking to me about some irrelevant mumbo jumbo as though he hasn’t just practically harassed me when I blatantly wasn’t in the mood for a conversation

Yeah I do see what you mean. I just find it awkward looking at people through my phone and I struggle to get past that.

this!
I also wear headphones a lot, so it helps that I don't have to worry about listening for the door.

Haha the baby one had me laughing even though I've seen it already
I hate being on FaceTime too, my parents call me on it mainly to see their grandkids but when I answer I just show them the ceiling until I pass it on and then say ring me back normally to have a chat!
Quick chat or txt no video chat nonsense
I hate chatting on the phone but can text all day and and night
I only FaceTime the kids I’d never accept video call off an adult
I hate faceache time. Thankfully no one calls me on it, but my wife and daughter are using it loads at the moment. It was bad enough when I had to put up with people doing it on my commute home from work on the train
i only like talking over video link if the person at the other end happens to be in another country, else there doesn't seem to be any point to me.

Texting back with one finger at a time. 'p la y in ps 4'. Then you get a text back 'pause it'. When you are playing online.
