“Hey Frank! Where have you been? You haven’t even bothered to contact me. Have searched everywhere for you.”
“Hey! I have had a lot to do lately. How are you?…”
Work is the easiest excuse people give to show they’re busy. Especially if they plan to avoid you.
The fact remains that anyone who cares about you or is interested in keeping contact with you will always find time to do so even if they’re the busiest person on earth.
So don’t let anyone fool you. Anyone who is too busy to keep in touch with you doesn’t deserve your attention.
