‘Busy’ status

Its been quite a while now that I have started using google talk and have some friends. In case you are wondering ‘haven’t we all?’ to that first line, let me defend my self by saying that I am relatively new to chatting and social networking even though I have been around computers for the last 15 years atleast. Oops..i seem to have drifted off the point. Anyways back to the point, I can’t help but see a lot of my ‘friends’ with the ‘busy’ status all the time while they are online.

Here are a few doubts that I have

1. Is chatting not a leisurely activity to be done when you are not busy?  I mean honestly does anyone go to a speak easy and sit next to people who are leisurely chatting and try to work with a big board that says ‘BUSY’? In my mind a chat client is like a speak easy to be used for leisurely chatting. I could be wrong here.

2. If they are so busy and do not wish to be disturbed through the chat client, why are they online? Is it to test my literacy level,IQ or determination not to disturb them just for the heck of it?

Feel free to leave a comment if you wish to agree or disagree with me (by that I mean if you want to agree with me)

  1. they mite be chattin wid smbdy else and hence r busy but yet usin d client to leisurely interact with smbdy else
    see my funda is to not add people indiscriminately to my gtalk but people end up doin it and hence they want to display that busy sign to all those people they hav added but dnt want to talk to atleast not then

  2. Akanksha- My point exactly. If some one did not want to add me to their list they should have rejected my friend request instead of this trick. But people like you are not really the ones that I am talking about here, its the people who I think log on from office every single day.
