7 Things You Will Relate With If You’re The “Busy” Friend

September 8, 2021

If you have a friend group, and there’s that one person amongst you who is always busy with work, reach out and send them food or hugs today. Life tuff.

1. Unplugging is hard

Forget all those tips and how-tos. Establishing a strict work-life balance can be very tricky for workaholics.

2. You forget to eat

There’s hardly ever time. Whining and dining with stress is your mood most of the time. Maybe a human alarm will help.

3. You can’t stand delays

ATM, restaurant, laundry, anything that might require waiting, count you out. First, you don’t have time for that. Second, you have tasks waiting for you.

4. Little to nonexistent social life

Your friends don’t bother inviting you to hangouts anymore because they know you’ll likely say you’re busy.

4. Delayed replies

People think you air them, when in reality, it takes you 2-7 business days to sort through all your WhatsApp messages.

5. Reminders are lifesavers

You have a reminder for almost everything as there’s the probability that you would forget. Before Tolani will say you’re a bad friend.

6. “Busy” is the most typed word on your keyboard

Within the last 24 hours, it’s very likely that you’ve typed busy at least thrice.

7. You miss out on things

All the gist and hot tea rarely gets to your table. Next thing, you’re clueless and wondering when Cynthia got engaged.
