Default I was told that I need to go to texting rehab. Have you?

I'm horrible.
Sober I'm bad, drunk I'm worse.
I'd rather text than call.
I've even gone so far as to booty text vs. booty call.


So.
Do you text too much?
Why do you feel you do/don't?

Expect 300 Otters to pm you their number for the next time you need to make a booty-text.

I really don't like texting, and i hate when people do it in front of me. It's just as rude as taking a call while you're talking to me.

#1. They know better.
#2. Now on this I agree 125%. I don't text in front of someone without saying "excuse me" and turning away for a moment. I even go so far as to not answer texts until I'm not in front of someone having a convo.

I <3 texting. I hate talking on the phone because usually the other person never shuts up...with texting I can just say what needs to be said and be done with it

I hated it until I got a phone with a QWERTY keyboard. I still only text about 30 or so times a month, but it's a halfway decent way to just BS with the girlfriend when we're both sitting around bored at work.

Truth, except for phone with QWERTY. I has not that

Still, I'd rather call someone, because that's instant connection...a person may not receive a text for hours.

I prefer to text as well. The only thing is texting while driving is no go with the iphone.. there are no true buttons so there is nothing tactile to use... you HAVE to look at the screen.

texting is the way to go. why leave vm when you can send a txt instead? it's far easier to access and even easier to reply to.

for the most part, all i do is txt. there is a very small group of family/friends who i talk with on the phone...and there's only 1 person i talk to on the phone for longer than 5 mins at a time.

I don't like texting at all. Part of it is that it takes me forever to type anything out, when I could have just called the person in half the time. Also, it annoys me how much the phone companies (or at least AT&T) charge for this BS.

I have to admit that I am now a fan of texting. It's about multitasking though. If someone calls I have to stop what I'm doing to talk. Where as texting allows me to get back at my own convenience.

Never sent a text in my life. I'd need a cellphone to do that.

I just found out recently that my unlimited data plan does not include unlimited texts. As I have been rigorously using twitter as of late, I used about 490 texts out of the 200 I am allotted. *sadpanda*

So.
Do you text too much?
Why do you feel you do/don't?
You're like my now ex girlfriend. I broke up with her because she spent more time with her phone than talking to me....while I was with her.

She is so bad that she rubbed the numbers off the buttons on the phone and they stopped clicking. She later bought one of those phones with a full keyboard and it became even worse.

I stopped speaking to her in words and now talk to her in her language "clickity click click clickity*

Constant text messaging when you're having dinner, watching a movie, having a conversation or even making out is just the most annoying thing that someone can do and it just reeks of selfishness, rudeness and inconsideration for everyone around you.

BTW...on an average month, I'll send out about 20 text messages total.

Um . . . no I'm not. I just agreed that I refuse to text in front of people because it's just rude.

I text a lot, but if live peoples are in front of me, they get my attention.

I'm just a mad texter.

Saying "excuse me" and then turning your back to someone so you can text your BFF is still rude.
