Does Staying Offline Validate Our Existence?

Why is it that whenever an individual stays offline for an unusual duration (maybe 1 week or more) they suddenly feel they’ve achieved a great deal and thus should be given some accolades.

Recently someone called me a fake friend because according to her she’s been offline for some time and I didn’t border to give her a call to know why, “what if I had died,” she queried. 

To think that her absence was inconspicuous irks me, talk more of her myopic remark😡.

That statement is actually very dumb, I’ve had people say it to me in few occasions and lord knows I don’t reply, cos if I do the friendship might end that day. People have several reasons for being offline, maybe no data or they just decide to stay offline for some hours or days cos I know I do so sometimes, so I don’t see any big deal on why someone would want to come and guilt trip me for not noticing their absence and try to reach out. The major reason why I might notice is if I have… Read more »

Maybe you have ajebutter friends. Where I come from, nobody gets upset because friends refused to check up on them.
