    What is an acceptable text response back to

    I Don't Text

    Usually, I don't. If the phone is on and I get a text, I will usually respond. I don't own a smart phone so it's a challenge working with a flip phone which has several letters assigned to a button. I'd rather call the person to talk anyway.
