I Hate Texting

    Texting is annoying. I take forever to respond

    to a message, and people always get impatient. They'll send five messages in the time it takes me to send one. I just take a long time to figure out what to say, since I'm not very socially inclined. Plus, it's too easy to misinterpret what someone's trying to say. A perfectly...

    For Conversations...

    While I enjoy a sweet-nothing received via text, or a place change or a 'running late' message, I can't stand it when a whole conversation ensues via text. I just stop texting if that happens, it gets way too annoying. Just pick up the phone! Save some time, and some irritation...

    How Do You Spell...

    I hate texting. It has to be the stupidest form of communicating. My son texts his girlfriend while we are between jobs on the road. I driving of course. And he will ask me how to spell a word so he can text it to her. I always ask him why don't you just call her and either ask...

    Texting Is Stupid

    I drive for a living, your text(no matter who you are or what it says) isn't that important to me, if it was you'd call. A conversation is had with 2 people speaking, this isn't grade school people! We don't need to pass notes back and forth. I've been in the vehicle well your...

    I am being forced into typing with one finger

    at a time if I want to communicate with people who choose to text instead of type or call. I don't get it. Wait, that's not true. I get it but I don't like it and feel animosity toward people who know I don't like texting yet choose to text me anyway. Am I the jerk? Or are...

    Yuck.... Texting is a crummy way to communicate.

    ... I sometimes dislike someone always being able to get in touch with me.... I like to ground my phone for at least half a day once a week.... Just leave it in the bedroom and forget about it

    With a Passion

    Why text someone when you can just hit speed dial and talk with them directly? Seems detached and stupid to me. I speak much better than I type. Most people do. If you don't want to talk to me don't bother sending a text message, I have a delete button.

    I know that texting is seriously the fastest

    way to communicate with other people. However, I feel like it has created these false ideologies for everyone. The texting game is probably the dumbest thing of my life. Having to wait and wait and wait for another person's response, and then if you "double text," it can...
