I loathe texting...what a waste of time!
That being said, I DO find it to come in handy with one liners only:
Example: I may text my husband, "On my way home" so he does not worry if it is getting late, but I just type "OMW" he knows what it means.
OR, maybe my daughter, "can you meet for coffee this afternoon?" Stuff like that.
But to have a conversation back and forth via texting is ridiculous. This is where I just pick up the phone.
While I think cell phones are great for emergencies, tracking people down when late, etc., etc., I think the cell phone rage is totally out of hand.
EVERYWHERE I go I see people walking and texting...and it is insane to do it while driving. I believe many are actually addicted to it.
I do keep my cell in my pocket, and it has come in handy. But, like everything else, it can be abused. There is just no balance. Blessings, Sparklea :)
