I just got a new phone. Is there a way that I can politely but firmly tell my friends that giving me "hints" as to who is texting me is not okay?
So, I just got this new phone and I did post on facebook that I need numbers. Only about 4 people texted or messaged me to give me their numbers. I managed to transfer some of my contacts from my old phone but that still left a sizeable chunk un-transferred. I just got a text from one of the untransferred ones and when I said that I got a new phone and asked who it was, instead of telling me, he started giving me “hints.” I figured out who it was, but when people do that, it just pisses me off because, usually, I don’t have the time and I never have the patience to try and figure out who it is.
So, Jellies, is there a nice way that brooks no argument for me to tell people to cut it out?
I’m sure a lot of you will want to tell me that “it’s all in good fun” or that I should “lighten up” but every time I get a new phone or add someone to my buddy list, this happens and I have never been okay with it. It is annoying and bothersome for me.
