need to find out if a customer is waiting for a staff member to respond


Real world explanation:
Respond to the customers waiting for a response.

there should be no results because
select profile_id, sender,message_id,this_user from a_messages2 where profile_id='abl' order by message_id desc limit 1

abl  staff3  4053183569  staff3


staff3 was the last to respond

we do not need to send another message to 'abl' because staff3 already sent the last message


but there should be results for swa, because we need to respond to swa
