We’ve all been there, be it on Whatsapp or Facebook – or even the old text message – when you and your friends are in a group thread and the messages become just that little bit too much.
It might be that you go to work and your phone is constantly buzzing with notifications, or that you go to sleep and wake up with 40 messages to scroll through – most of which are totally irrelevant.
They’re a nightmare to keep up with, there are probably a couple of people in the thread you don’t even know, and frankly, you end up wishing that you weren’t involved in the messages at all.
Organising a night out or a birthday present for someone suddenly doesn’t seem quite worth the utter hell you’re putting yourself through.
Peace and quiet is not overrated.
