Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. It depends on thier speed of response that day.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/17/07 - 5:28:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I expect them not to.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/17/07 - 5:29:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not if I really will be right back.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/17/07 - 5:30:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't. I just go.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/17/07 - 6:01:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, I usually just do whatever I have to do. What really is there for them to say besides "ok"?
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 3/24/07 - 1:04:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
No...usually its something I really need to do and I don't have the time to sit and wait on them to reply.

If I need to do something important no.
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/4/07 - 7:01:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
It depends on who I'm talking to.
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/4/07 - 7:05:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. I just leave.
I'm rude like that.
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/4/07 - 7:13:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes I do, if I like the person.
But usually I just get "ok" as an answer, so I don't bother.

Once I left before receiving a reply and when I got back I read on the screen "What does brb mean?"

I don't wait for a response, because I don't bother responding to it when people say it to me. And like people above me have said, there's not much more that can be said but 'ok'.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 6/18/07 - 4:55:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not really. The only time I really have to leave for a sec is to get the phone, and I can't wait around all day for someone to respond and then miss my phone call >:(
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 6/26/07 - 12:52:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes yeah cause I do it to make sure they're still there.
Then other times I tell them I'll be back when I'm avoiding them.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/12/07 - 2:49:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, they might have something to say before I go.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/12/07 - 8:52:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nah, I just take off.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/17/07 - 8:39:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't wait at all. How long am I supposed to sit there saying my goodbyes?
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 7/17/07 - 8:45:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, not all the time.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 7/20/07 - 8:25:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, unless they've said 'brb' before me and not come back yet.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 7/20/07 - 8:26:42 AM EST (GMT-5)

13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/6/07 - 7:22:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
