Just checked my mail at Yahoo, and they had a news story, about the "Ten Biggest Texting Mistakes". The story started, "Unless you're living a seriously alternative lifestyle, you've probably been communicating via text for a while now. You text your friends, your dates -- even your parents." I don't. When I bought my phone, I had the text capability removed. You want to talk to me on my phone you have to TALK to me. You can't text me- my phone won't accept it. So I wondered if I was the only one left in the world that didn't text? And then, when reading the story, I wondered about the rudeness of people. The #2 bad text thing was, "There is always at least one point in the night -- a lull in the conversation, a pause between thoughts -- when it gets really quiet, and you look around and realize that all your friends are busy texting." I believe if I noticed that all of my friends were texting, I would get up and leave. They obviously did not want to be with me, but instead wanted to talk to whoever they were texting. Why should I stay there with them?
