I know a lot of people like that... I still don't understand WHAT can someone be so busy with. Short of being one of those slaves in the bowels of a giant Roman rowboat, there's no way there's someone too busy to fire off a few sentences on an email or chat window. Maybe I don't take life seriously enough but I'd rather shoot myself than be like that.
Well hey at least I know I'm not the only one who thinks like that. After all, actions speak louder that words and maybe he just doesn't want you in his life. I find some people who are antisocial enough (or just indifferent to the world around them) to pull this off. I do find most Russians to be hospitable and recipocrative, something most Canadians lack.
