6 Reasons I’m Not Answering Your Texts

I always have a reason for not texting someone back.
These are those reasons.  
And yes, they're in order - of most regular occurrence.

1)  I'm busy.
I'm in a moment where I see your text but I legitimately can't stop what I'm doing to answer you.

2)  My phone is on silent and/or died.
I honestly prefer keeping my phone on silent so I don't have to be hearing it going off every few minutes.  Instead, I can just have it on silent and go look at all my notifications when I have the time to.  My phone very rarely dies, but there's also that reason.

3)  I'm sleeping.
And you should be too........ Unless it's one of those rare midday naps I rarely get to partake of.

4)  I don't have time.
If your text is something that I know will trigger a long conversation but I don't have the time to give you the full attention it deserves, then I won't respond at all.

5)  You're annoying
And I honestly have no idea why I gave you my number.

6)  I never gave you my number
And there are clear reasons for that, so why would I encourage you to text me by texting you back?

  1. I think reason 3, or sleeping would be on the top of the list for me. A lot of my friends are night owls and I tend to be sleeping in REM when they message and my phones obviously on silent. Funny post.
