I seem to have been meeting some very busy men of late. If I didn't know better I'd think I've been idle and that's why they all seem busy. But actually they are indeed busy and I've been anything but idle. Still...
Someone "hooked" me up with someone recently. The first date was splendid, it was actually very promising. But...
Eight days later and still no word. I told the "hooker" (no pun intended) that I'm not game anymore.
"Please Nwando noooo, he's busy. He's really really busy. He says he really really likes you. He will call!".
Me: Nobody is that busy. I understand he's a pretty important person with loads on his plate. But
He eats, he sh*ts, he sleeps, he pees, he drinks water, and he reads the papers. Surely taking half a minute to say or text Hihellohowareyou can't be that difficult. So...
Im'ma keep it moving and he should too.
Last month or so, I met someone whom I learnt is really busy too. While the former has built his empire, this one is building his. Busy guy this one; the boss at the office, managing the staff, the talent and the underlings. It really must be very time consuming and tasking. Still,
Days and it was either no word or the halfhearted "hey" lacking enough vibe to receive a "hey back"...
I kept it moving.
He said "I've been soo busy. But since I didn't (call/text/ping), then you should have". I said "You can't be asking me out, and expect me to make all or most of the effort"... Dude!
Let's keep it moving.
Some people argue that some people are so terribly busy, completely occupied and stressed out that even when they get a second to rest they are too exhausted to do anything but... rest. So it's not that they don't miss you, think about you or care about you, it's just that their lives are so consumed by all this busyness that it becomes almost impossible to pick that phone and say hi.
But here's what I think;
It might come across as simplistic to you, but that's what I think and I acknowledge no exceptions.
What do you think? Is "too busy" bull crap or some people's reality?
