Category: Chat Messengers


I did not expect to get a message on Skype from an old client in my previous job. I had not used Skype for several months and to be asked about a software issue caught me by surprise.

I worked in an overseas biometrics company for almost 5 years and I remember handling this potential customer last year. You probably are familiar with customers who is so persistent when it comes to asking too many specific technical questions, leaving you with an impression that they’d buy and can afford it but not without haggling for the price of 2 machines for the initial purchase. He is in that category of the kind of customer.

So you can imagine my surprise when he’d randomly messaged me, giving me that false impression again that he was gonna purchase. I remember my former colleague who took over his case did say she had to revise a proforma invoice not once but thrice.

I courteously told him I don’t work for the company anymore and he has been aware before of the contact e-mail for technical queries. He further told me he was starting out a company selling products from a competitor. I understand he probably wants to diversify the brands of products he could sell but asking me why the product prices of my previous company is too high is preposterous.

I didn’t comment and cut the conversation short. It was déjà vu all over again.



Yesterday I got a text message in Viber from an unregistered number in my contacts list. I was used to getting Viber notifications from friends who have recently installed the said chat messaging mobile app on their smartphones. It was my first time to receive a Viber text notification involving an anonymous number.

I don’t mind getting text messages from someone whom I may already know but just recently changed numbers as long as they are direct with me. However I have a pet peeve with so-called friends who keep themselves anonymous after I’ve asked them to identify themselves. If you wanted to get to someone through text, it’s your job to make yourself known to the person you just sent a message to. That’s the way it’s supposed to work.

What the hell is up with keeping your friend or someone in suspense about your identity? This kind of vapid behavior is giving me very bad vibes about the sender’s character and integrity. I don’t care if it’s a prank or a joke – it’s downright annoying and time-wasting. Prank or not, it tells me a lot about how you deal with other people and how slow and insipid you are.
