what do you call people who require immediate response from you?
Posted by: mrbigstuff

this came up recently when I put an ad on CL and immediately got some dude virtually screaming that he needed to get in touch with me, NOW! I put the messages (like 9 of them) in spam, so he then used another address and then wrote his tale of woe of how I did not get in touch with him at the other address and sounded as if he was going to off himself because of it.

but this is not really about him, per se. I know people (some are friends) who will send an email and then want me to respond NOW and if I don't (and I usually do not), they will call me the next day, saying how they are sad that they can't get in touch with me. two of these people must have a minimum phone conversation of 30m, consisting mostly of them talking. I can not stand talking on the phone for that long, so I call them infrequently. and, yet, they are good friends, and good people. but wth is up with the neediness?

Whiney bastidges... A few months ago, a friend found an iPhone on the sidewalk by his house on a Sunday morning, we looked it over and called the owner about picking it up. In the meantime, the phone started getting a bunch of messages from people who were extremely perturbed about being out of contact for a few hours. I told my buddy, "We could really wreck this guy's social life without half trying."

Sounds like something close to Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

What you're describing may be too broad for one definition, but co-dependency might be in the ballpartk. Also, it's a typical trait of Borderline Personality Disorder that the person needs your attention, postive or negative, to fill their void.

Annoyances.

I can't count how many times my wife has walked in with "I've got a project for you," interrupting whatever it was I was doing. "Now?" I ask. "Well, not necessarily. . ."

Of course she thinks that the time I spend "on the computer" is utterly frivolous. Not that she's entirely wrong, but. . .

High Maintenance.

Seriously, my wife and I would have divorced years ago if we had demanded instant response all the time.

I see this a lot with the younger crowd. They expect immediate responses, yet don't feel it's necessary for them to respond immediately. I blame the cell phones and texting... they think that texts are instantaneous and don't understand if someone doesn't respond right away.

i totally agree. it's an instant gratification kind of generation. i had a girlfriend once who amazed me in that she didn't immediately jump up and answer the phone when it rang. i was raised that you try to answer by the second ring. it was very liberating to realize one didn't have to. in fact, you could choose not to answer at all. what a concept.

OTOH, if my 21 year old son doesn't answer my text i am fit to be tied and start to assume to something terrible has happened...

Here's the funny thing...
SINCE my post in this topic, I got FIVE calls from a guy wanting to know when our range is open this weekend... Since I don't take or return personal calls from work, he just had to wait for a reply.
Apparently, five hours drove him insane.

Depends. Try telling him the range is closed all weekend or that he isn't welcome.

I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
