Just cleared out my voicemail box. Got messages from people I don't want to talk to, at least not right now.
I sent one of them a message saying "I got chores but may take the dogs for a walk instead. Being antisocial this weekend"
Inotherwords: "Don't come over, I might not be here"
I really am an introvert, and I don't feel like it is my duty to inform everyone who wants to communicate with me that I don't want to communicate.
So the short, somewhat curt, and possibly insensitive but maybe not texting works for me.
