….when there is no intention of doing so?
In every type of situation!
Worse,when YOU call to follow up,and politely apologize for calling (since they were supposed to call),they say,”I’m the type of person,ya gotta keep trying me,eventually you’ll get me”…
I don’t chase them.They won’t be reliable any further than that either.
**THE BUSIEST PEOPLE GET BACK TO ME WITH PROMPT COURTESY AND RESPECT.**So,it’s not about who’s busier than whom.
It’s an attitude,and it slows me down all the time.February 3, 2011 11:33 pm at 11:33 pm #1019976observanteenMember
Yeah, t’is pretty nerve-wracking. But, again, NY isn’t exactly known for being polite, y’know.February 3, 2011 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #1019977
Are you an objective New Yorker or an out-of-towner living here like me?February 3, 2011 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #1019978observanteenMember
Yep. Down here with you. I’m pretty annoyed by the NYers manners.February 3, 2011 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #1019979Derech HaMelechMember
Silly out of towners.February 4, 2011 12:04 am at 12:04 am #1019980
I politely object. New Yorkes DO have nice and polite manners. (Living proof!) It’s just that the impolite stick out – and that there are more impolite in N.Y. than polite in OOT.February 4, 2011 12:20 am at 12:20 am #1019981yossi z.Member
Eclipse: are you upset ’cause I said it and didn’t get back to you? I am really sorry for not informing you of what I was doing while I was doing it, but I was working on things the whole day but so far all I’ve got is either: “well yeah that is the mentality (about single moms and they didn’t give me any info or suggestions)” or “look in the papers/online/etc”

I take personal offense at this thread. I am a born and bred NYer and don’t enjoy being put down.!!February 4, 2011 4:01 am at 4:01 am #1019984cb1Member
i have very nice manners…when i’m not in NY! lolFebruary 4, 2011 5:31 am at 5:31 am #1019985aries2756Participant
I believe NY’ers are very fast paced and are extreme multi-taskers. I don’t think they mean to be rude and not get back to you I believe their lists are so long they can’t keep track of what they promised whom and they are just truly running behind and can never catch up. When they say “I’ll get back to you” they really mean “I’ll add you to my list and get to you when I get to you”. They truly intend to get to you somewhere down the list. If they really don’t want to be bothered NY’ers are straight forward enough to say “Sorry I don’t have time or really I can’t be bothered with that!”February 4, 2011 6:13 am at 6:13 am #1019986wanderingchanaParticipant
BPG, I am sure you didn’t mean that to be funny, but in context, it… is.

Ladies and gentlemen,please read THE ENTIRE POST:
i CLEARLY SAID THAT MANY BUSY PEOPLE DO GET BACK TO ME.
I didn’t mean to offend anyone by using the word New York,and if the Mods approve,that word can be deleted.
HOWEVER,while “the impolite” stand out in every situation,and it is related to being so fast-paced…there is MORE OF THIS in New York than out of town.
Again,if you read my entire post,I wasn’t putting down “all New Yorkers” at all.
Yossi Z._ Of course,I did not mean you!Chas V’sholom!February 4, 2011 12:42 pm at 12:42 pm #1019988
Yossi Z.,I just read YOUR entire post!
Listen,it’s the effort that counts,only Hashem controls the OUTCOME of things.February 4, 2011 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #1019989
In another post you write how you see beauty in everone!!!February 4, 2011 4:10 pm at 4:10 pm #1019990
Yochie,I don’t understand what you are saying,and if you are referring to the “You Are Beautiful” thread,it is NOT about EVERYONE.February 4, 2011 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #1019991
Wow thank you,Mods!!February 4, 2011 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1019992crdleMember
who are you waiting to hear back from?February 4, 2011 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #1019993
Yes, it’s what I’m refering to. In any case, why be picky. Everyone has beauty in some fashion / aspect. The famous story in Gemorah where a Tanna found beauty to a woman having a fitting name.February 4, 2011 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #1019994
Yochie,I will rephrase my title for you:
WHY DO SO MANY BEAUTIFUL (HOLY,HOLY)YIDDEN FORGET TO CALL OTHER YIDDELACH BACK?
Come on,you gotta like that one,sir.February 6, 2011 6:32 am at 6:32 am #1019995

Would you rather they say they’ll get back at you?June 17, 2014 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #1020000👑RebYidd23Participant
