Who Cares How Busy You Are!?

First off let me say I am sorry to all my fellow readers out there on my lack of post lately. It has been a very busy time for this writer here who was traveling and working on taking care of stuff for his business. I promise to make it up to all of you for my lack of writing and pound out about of great post for you in the ext couple of weeks. With that being said, lets talk about everyone who is extremely busy and loves to talk about it. You know we all have those friends, that when you ask how they are doing their first response is always, “I AM SOOO BUSY!” and we are like that’s nice, but “HOW ARE YOU!? Not how busy are you!” Today lets talk about this phrase and how much it makes you look like, well honestly, a jerk.

Here’s the deal, when I ask someone how they are, I personally don’t care how busy they are, if I wanted to know how busy you were, I would ask how busy are you. When someone tells us that they are busy the underlining message is, they don’t really want to talk to you and even if that is not the case, it still seems that way. Busy is a good thing and it’s great to be busy, but going around telling me that you busy and that is how you are doing, you are missing the question. To many times do I get the response that they are so busy with work and extra stuff, news flash we are busy in our normal lives, doesn’t mean you have to respond that you are busy.

To all my people out there who use this “I am busy” as a response to the question how you are doing, why do you respond that way? Well here’s the real reasons why you do. First off you want to feel important and feel the need to say I am busy is a way of showing that you are to busy for anything. Second, you don’t really want to talk to the person and saying you’re busy is a way of trying to give them a hint, where you should just say, “Hey I am good, but really busy at the moment, can we talk later?” is an easier response then just,”I am busy.” Finally my last point on this, is you sound like you give to poos about the person who ask you the question, because you didn’t answer it and that right there is the number one sign that this person is below you, not meaningful, and just a pain to you.

Now if you don’t want to come off that way, just find better ways to word it if you can’t talk. Everyone is busy and if someone reaches out to you, even though they are probably busy too, then you can give them the curiosity of being nice to them. Here’s the main deal, being busy is great and for the most part all of us, so no one gives any thought about that in a real conversation, unless they ask you “How busy you are?” don’t response with you telling them how busy you are. Lets be honest, that’s just rude, so think on that before you response with… “I AM BUSY!” No one cares if you are or not.

Answering the right way is key in this Savage World, that you are no longer just living in, but beginning to own!
