Do you use text messaging?
Mon, 05-06-2013 - 8:34am

I have been using text messaging for years now after my kids forced me to learn how. It is so simple and easy that I am shocked over the amount of adults I know who don't text. I'm wondering if you text and it not, why not?

I was very reluctant to learn to text but my neices and nephews made me learn. Now I love it and text more than I talk. It is especially handy to use while at the office. I can discreetly carry on a conversation and no one ever knows.

I  don't use text messaging because I prefer to hear a voice and talk. I think texting is so impersonal. It drives me crazy to see so many people hunched over their phones all the time texting.

I use it but I probably don't do it correctly according to the kids. I spell out all of the words. LOL

I 'had' to learn. When my daughter was in high school, she would text me when she wouldn't talk to me. I now text with her, with a friend who moved out of state, etc.... I also like some of the store offers that come in a text message... lol
