I Hate Texting!


I am about to show my age...all 51 years of it...I know this because when I shared my opinion on this topic to my daughter who is 26 years old...she said "You are showing your age!"

I hate Texting!
as in "Ronda send me a text with the information!"
I never learned to type having read that Jacqueline Kennedy said supposedly
"If you learn to type you become a typist!"
So...with this information I have sat waiting for my non-typing self to become the first lady!

So when asked to text information to someone this non-typing girl who was all thumbs to begin with can't use her thumbs to text...hence, I hate Texting!

I hate texting as in,
I am here and you are here...only you are hunched over a square box while you thumbs are moving at crazy rate of speed...making you look like some sort of evolutionary human being!
While I sit across from you looking like the missing link!

I do-not-like-greatly you sitting across from me Texting at a restaurant while I am forced to stare at wallpaper or make witty conversation with the waiter!

You Texting while with me...makes me feel there is a better party somewhere else and I haven't been invited!

When you are driving and Texting with me in your car....
Well, I don't have to type what I said...

Because I screamed it at 65 mph!

Texting is stupid....

They have this wonderful device and it is very near to what you are using right now...
Each individual has a number attached to their person...
you merely punch in these numbers (if your phone is super-fancy...you just speak my name)
and you will hear "Hello!"

And wonders of wonders...
It is like the person is sitting next to you!

OH WAIT... I AM SITTING NEXT TO YOU!

OMG, I soooooooooooo agree. A text now and then is okay, but all of this constant thumb typing? It drives me MAD!!!!!!!! Hubby has the damn Crackberry and he sends emails with it while driving 80 mph!!!

Texting is the de-evolution of humans...already there is a whole generation who cannot write a proper sentence and the art of conversation will be lost. And no, I am neither old nor a techno phobe:)

LOL! You tell ´em Ronda! I text, but I usually don´t like it either, and when it´s about something in detail, I am always the one who calls. Whatever happened to calling?!!

I just htink texting is one more evil technological advance designed to make sure we don't EVER have to have face-to-face communication. I hate it. HATE it.

This totally cracked me up. SO SO SO true. I refrain from texting in the presence of others for this very reason. It's rude.

Such a funny post!

My family uses texting to remind each other of birthdays and family events. Easier than lots of phone calls, but I agree with you, people text WAY too much!
