While travelling, sometimes I talk with people seated near me. The conversation is either started by them or by me. At the end, some people ask for WhatsApp number or mobile number or facebook id.
Facebook id is okay; no problem with that, and I will give it to them.
But one or two times I gave my number to them and then from next day onwards, I am in their broadcast list. "Good mng" "Good ni8" and that is the message I get daily and it is really disturbing for me to check such greetings/farewell message.
Some people add me to some groups and my inbox always contains more than 1K unread messages.
So, I don't want to give my WhatsApp number to such people.
How could I reject their request politely? In such a way that they won't think that I am rejecting their request because I didn't like them. They should think that there are some other reasons.
Telling that I don't have WhatsApp is not an option. Sometimes I use it but it is not an option anymore because I check my WhatsApp in the journey and they know I have it.
