It\’s both puzzling and frustrating communicating online more and more. I\’m getting the impression people just don\’t read stuff anymore. It\’s as if they\’re literally blind to what\’s written right in front of them.

Over the last day alone, two separate people wrote to me asking a different question each. I answered both questions directly. They both responded with thanks, but proceeded to ask the same questions again. I\’m like WTF? Didn\’t these people READ my response to them? Did they even see or even comprehend the words? The answers to their questions are RIGHT THERE in my response. I know they saw them because they confirmed they got the message.

Complete head scratching moment here.

pfft. Bad day. Don\’t ask.

    You’re not alone in that thought, Gerry. I’ve seen it in so many other blogs. Yung tipong nag disclaimer ka na, or nag post ka na about your policies and stuff sa blog but still they persist. It would be fine kung isa or dalawa, or yung tipong sobrang rare occurrence, kaso hindi eh. :( Nakakalungkot na nakakainis.

    Wifey gets that alot…like “pano po mag-shop online?” It’s all over her website with ARROWS. I can’t believe they asked it. Also, sasabihin they don’t have a branch of the bank in their, which sobrang dami kaya. Wifey knows how to find banch of banks online. It’s just crazy may mga taong ganyan.

    Alala mo dati nung nagpost ako sa FB about sa isang event ko? Andun sa announcement ang time, date, and venue. Couldn’t have been more than 3 sentences.

    Lo and behold! The first question I get asked is kelan po and saan?
