Incommunicado, as an adjective or adverb, refers to a situation or a behaviour due to which communication with outsiders is not possible, for either voluntary or involuntary reasons, especially due to confinement or reclusiveness.
It seems there are a whole group of folk who have this issue. And they all have something I want. Information.
In the last 2 weeks I have ordered 2 items from Etsy. Most items from Etsy are handmade. Usually made to order. So, I would expect a response. You know, something along the lines of “Hey, I got your order. I’m taking your money and you are going to get something in this many days or weeks or months.” I don’t care how long it takes. I’m not picky that way, really. But I do want to know you appreciate my money, my patronage. Just a quick note. I don’t need great detail. I just want to be acknowledged.
What we’ve got here is failure to communicate – Cool Hand Luke
At work, I send an email. It is greeted with stoney silence. This is frustrating as hell. If I could just get some kind of response. I don’t expect an immediate response. But I can’t wait for weeks. I sent a question to someone 2 months ago. I still haven’t heard back. It’s insane. If you don’t know the answer say, “I don’t know.” Just anything. I’d be happy with “Fuck you. Forget you ever knew my name.” I just want something. Don’t leave me hanging.
There is really no reason for this. There are so many ways to communicate. There’s regular phone, email, cell phone, Instant Message, Skype, hell you can even use snail mail. Just please acknowledge me.
