Totally. Completely. Hate. It.
I’m not trying to hide from the world or anything, but why do I have to announce to everyone that I am online every time I check my mail? Or vice versa… if I am in chat mode, now I cannot tell if a friend has popped up on my buddy list because they want to yak or just because they are checking e-mail. It bugs me.
Yes, I am coming down with something. I’m pre-sick grumpy. Bite me.
UPDATE: Ok, so I finally found the teeny, tiny link at the bottom of the page that says “Gmail view: standard with chat or standard without chat.” Do you think that makes me less grumpy to look like an idiot? No, it does not. Grr.
