I am working in IT and this question is about my Indian colleagues.
This is about chatting over Instant Messaging(IM) like Lync, Skype etc.
Sometimes, I used to get single letter replies like below.
k ( means Ok)
s ( means Yes)
y ( means Why)
tx ( means Thanks)
These people used to type small paragraphs when they needed but sometimes using this shortest response.
Sometimes I assume they are busy but mostly I feel irritated by type of responses. Because I take these messages as rude or insult.
I think along the lines, How much time it would take to type an additional letter?
How to respond to these type of messages?
Are these normal responses and I am over-reacting?
