BZZT BZZT. You do your own thing and still, the phone vibrates. BZZT BZZT. You stop responding but still they persist. BZZT BZZT. You act as if you are not interested in the slightest, but your phone still vibrates. You get their messages, but do they get yours? Hidden or not, isn’t it obvious?
Why do they slide into my DMs? Why do they think they have the RIGHT to do so? Who gave them that permission? And why is it when I show them I am not interested in the slightest they persist?
It’s the unwanted messages that bother me. My phone blows up at random times throughout the day by various people. Yet, it’s the people I don’t want to be bothered by that push me over the edge. I’ve got too much other stuff to deal with right now. I don’t need you and your unwanted conversation to be bothering me.
Haven’t I made it clear that I don’t want to be bothered?
It seems though that no matter what you do, nothing works. You can be disinterested, unresponsive, and rude and they still will persist. Why? Haven’t I sent the message across? Haven’t I made it clear that I don’t want to be bothered?
But no! I guess not! There is something that is fueling their fire. Their fire that is encroaching on the wrong side. And it seems that unlike some fires, it can’t be put out with just water. This fire requires a special method that requires extra work and energy out of you. You didn’t even initiate things yet they still know how to make you do all the work. I just don’t understand?! If someone can tell me what I am doing wrong much help would be appreciated.
