Do you have a time limit about texting?

Generalizing is very dangerous, of course. I could say that generalizing is always dangerous but I will not do so, because it could be already a generalization... and you got the point anyway.

But, at least in my humble opinion, if you send a text message (SMS) and not receive a response within twenty minutes, it is very likely that you will not receive a response at all. Never. Never ever. Never ever ever. And you got the point again.

[Definitely not my style, but the most purplelicious phone I've seen lately:
Bratz Luscious Lip Phone]

Because we're not talking about twenty minutes, of course. We're talking about no response. At all. Nada. Nichts. Niente. Rien de rien.

Now, if you're like me, for you this means that the person does not care to answer.
If it's a bad day for you (or just for me?), this can also mean that the person is not interested in you. And I'm not talking about some big relationship. Maybe you sent a text message to a colleague or an acquaintance, just to ask something very 'normal'.

Now the question is:
Can I find really interesting a person that, to me, comes off as so cold and rude that they don't even bother to reply? And you? What's your time limit about texting?

What to read:
The rocket science of a good Skype conversation, or how not to forget the human being on the other side of the line...
