being unemployed and near my computer more…


Am I the only person who worries that instantly replying to emails makes me look like a loser? Frequently, when Gmail notifier dings and I check my email, it’s something that requires only a quick reply but I will wait a few hours so that it doesn’t appear that I sit at my computer desperate for emails all day long. Which, by the way, isn’t necessarily true – what if I had happened by during my incredibly busy and important day? Or if I were on my replying from my cell?

Actually, sometimes I wait to reply to texts for the same reason.
