whats your away message?


haha stupid question but honestly I have seen some really ridiculous away messages from people that are like a short novel on the persons life. Kind of wack to read but anyways what do you put on yours? when you use aim,aol or whatever you use. Mine is usually nothing but now i don't even use away messages i just sign off, just asking this question because I was bored/curious haha
I actually have a ton. Which one I use depends on what I'm doing. My away messages generally tell what I'm doing. I have a seperate one for each day of the week for classes, one for if I'm eating, etc...

If I don't feel like getting into great detail, my default one is "Enter away messageI'm not here. Leave me a message if you want to. Or don't. It's up to you."


I have about a bajillion that I rotate through, depending on my mood. I'm bored - I'll post them all here.

maybe sleeping
maybe away
maybe avoiding you (now this got a lot of responses, people in my list suddenly sending me msgs asking if I'm avoiding them)

One time I put a very long message (maximum that ym can allow) just to check who is bored enough to read the entire thing. And some people actually did!

I've developed a reputation for never having one. I just leave and if somebody tries to contact me while I'm gone they don't get a reply back. :lol:

on aim yours shows as "I am away from my computer right now."

but it stays at that all the time, you never change it or anything :lol: which oddly enough actually makes me not IM you just in case you really are gone whenever i see it...

i don't use away a lot so I just left it at the default one

"I am away from my computer right now"

Usually when I'm done I'll sign off, since it saves my password I can easily log right back in.
