We have all kinds of gadgets that we can connect with people. Cellphones, regular phones, emails, and social medias, etc. My question is how long it would take you to respond to someone who tries to reach you?

For example, if someone sends me a text message, I either reply right away or does not take me more than 30 minutes. Email response is less than a couple of hours. If I receive a voice message, I try to call back the person in a few hours at least. Usually I will respond as soon as possible.

But, I see some people taking a long time to respond. I admit I have some problems with those people. I know that someone is not like me who is connected with all these gadgets  for all day long before I go to bed.

So how fast are you?

Oh boy, I'm the slacker of the bunch then.  The answer is, it depends. 

E-mail, I check every 3 to 5 hours during the day, less on weekends.  So some times it's days before you get an e-mail response from me.

Texts, could be seconds, minutes, hours, or days.     Undecided

My email thing goes *ding* very half an hour, so if I'm on the computer, it takes me that long to reply. However, if I'm out, or at school, then there could be up to about 6 hours between checking.

Text: depends on whether my phone is on. If it's on, immediately. If it's off...whenever I get around to charging it.

Calls: I don't usually return calls, because then I run out of credit. I'll text back asking them what they wanted, though.

At work, it's not uncommon that I have to leave my office to spend several hours in one of several facilities where cell phones are not permitted.  And if you bring a laptop, it has to be screened by security and even then you are not permitted to connect it to any network.  So I may be totally out of contact for several hours at a whack.  I make an effort to check cell, desk phone, and email each time I get back, but about half the time when I finally get back to the person who called me, it turns out that whatever it was that they wanted is now OBE.

Overcome by events.  Sometimes it seems that any piece of information, once communicated, has a useful life of about two hours.   Shocked

Hmmmm this topic comes in a timely fashion as in this is one of my biggest pet peeves. =)   (a business thing that has invited itself into my personal life Roll Eyes)

Back in the day if you left a voice mail, expect a response time of 24 to 48 hours. That was once reasonable and acceptable practice and good etiquette.

NOW with the speed of technology and the many many ways we can connect with someone, response times should be within a few hours and of course within reason(I mean if someone died) . Especially in the business world. I mean between cell phones (ie: smart phones), email, social network sites, etc .... getting back to someone with in a hour to 3 is much more expected.

I state this to because .... people do not want to wait. people do not expect to wait. people want it and want it now.

PLUS I experience this on a sorta business level even though there is a place I do work for but not on payroll and I SEE how much business ends up walking out the door because of the lack of responding in a timely fashion to clients. it is sad. I take it personally. Primarily because of what I do and take pride in. Then I have to mentally shake myself and realize, not my business. sigh .....

I must be getting really old - back in my 'the' day a response of a week to a letter was considered adequate!
Its just a matter of time before we get inplantable devices that will permit us to respond without outwardly showing anything - except, I suppose, a glazed look Shocked
