    I’m honest and just say I’ve been busy, I’m sorry, and I forgot. Students should be understanding that you’re busy. If you don’t answer emails right away people stop expecting it.

    I actually am kind of OCD about my email, and I’m constantly checking it – so I always reply really quickly! If I ever got behind and took a while to respond, I’d totally lie, though!

    I didn’t respond to my cousin once for 2 months… (he lives internationally). I later told him it’s because it’s hard for me to write in his language, which is true, so I put off writing the e-mail until I had some time to really focus, and then I kind of forgot about it… Embarassed

    I do sometimes forget to email people back but Im usually pretty honest about it.  I just tell them I have had a lot of stuff going on and most people are usually pretty cool about it.  The one time I did use that excuse it was because it really happnened…a bill went straight to my junk mail and I never got it…

    I check my email all the time so it doesn’t really happen. I only delete emails from stores/spam that my spam blocker didn’t catch.

    Hmmm, nope. I usually say that I got it but have been really busy and meaning to reply. Not necessarily untrue… it happens more with phone calls than emails, though. I am far more likely to reply to an email! So I guess that’s why the spam filter wouldn’t work for me haha.

    I think that my friends just know that I am forgetful lol Sometimes I’ll read something and I honestly just forget about it and don’t remember until they are like “HELLO! ANSWER MY E-MAIL!”

    Stuff actually DOES get sucked into my junk folder by the spam filter way too often. When Im too busy, or dont have the energy/effort to reply right away, I`m upfront about it–not rudely though!
