I Hate Text Messaging

maybe it's the pain of using a numeric keypad to type, or maybe that your signifigant other does it for things they should call about...whatever, who else despises texting? 51 People

    Not The Same

    The reason that I detest text messaging is because it is lacking so much and leaves the opportunity for misunderstanding. Without the nuances that can be found in tone, pitch, and inflection there is a lot of room for misunderstanding. For example: when asked if you want to go...

    Is Texting And Technolgy Taking Over?

    After a recent presentation I have come to the conclusion that I believe that technology could be taking over. As a famous scientist one claimed, 'I fear the day technology will surpass human interaction', you know who that was? Einstein. Nowadays someone will sit in their...

    Ich spreche nicht Emoticonish.

    For those of you who are a bit behind in their German, the title, translated (a bit roughly) to English, means "I do not speak Emoticonish." And unless you are German, Swiss, Bavarian, etc. or are one of those extremely bright Asian kids, German to you probably means as much as...

    Texting is only ok if you're texting your gf/bf

    or someone you're trying to get with. Also quick things, ex: what you doing? let's hangout. That's ok. Everything else I can't stand. Especially if were eating at the table, eating out, or having a conversation, put that **** away it's disrespectful.

    Spare Me The Text Msgs Please!

    What works my nerves is when people do not comprehend that you dont want to be text messaged.   I have a good enough reason to keep this inconsideration.For one, I have Verizon Wireless and I do not have unlimited text messaging ..nor do I plan on upgrading so that I can...

    I Don't Care With Your Phone Bills.

    I hate text messaging! I hate pressing a 'button' over and over again to have the letter I need. God, it's so hard especially when your phone is touch-screen. Like whatever I do I can't get the letter and it takes a lot of my time. Ugh! I am lazy and impatient.  I also hate to...

    I hate texting sometimes,

    especially the people who insist on text only. Like when, someone texts you and you call'em back instead, but they don't answer. Like wtf?? When did we become so impersonal. Even a phone call conversation is stupid, but it's the only way to reach you at the moment. I think...

    So Annoying!

    GOD! I can't stand having to hit the same button like 3 times to get the letter I want, and then accidentally hitting it 4 times and having to find the button to go back one or hit the button like 5 more times to cycle back around to the desired letter. If I get a text message...

    Good That I Am Not The Only One That Does.

    90% Of Communication Is A Body Language..

    The only sense in sending text i have noticed in old fashion letters. People back then were writing them extensively, in detail. They knew there were no phones or mails to make it clear after a misunderstanding. Nowadays, people text messages cause: - they lie, - they can...
