If you text someone and they don't get back with you right away, what do you think?

    Marcy,

    Sending an email as well is a good idea. Then no matter when they address your text they'll know they better get back with you because it must be important.

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    Iburmaster-- LOL I'm glad they have better things to do, too, especially if the texts are frivolous. Lots of people are guilty of that. I love your outlook on things--you're always so practical and up-front. :-) P.S. How's the puzzle coming along?

    stricktlydating,

    More and more people are not texting and driving. This could be the main reason people who normally get back with you right away don't answer sometimes.

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    ketage,

    I know what you mean. If you answer right away all of the time you're tied to your phone.

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    Laura,

    I like the "911" and the "411" technique. In fact when my brother used to have a pager I would put "911" at the end of my phone number if I needed to talk with him right away. Thank you so much.

    mailxpress,

    I do like phone calls, but a text is great if you know the person can't have their phone ring at work.

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    That Grrl,

    I don't like to be tied to my phone either. If I get a call and I'm busy I'll just call back whenever. I don't worry about it. Everyone knows that I will get back with them.

    Thank you,

    Lisa

    I totally agree: following up with a call is best, unless the person can't take calls at work or whatever. (I've sent one 911 text and received 2 in the last few years that I can remember.) Calling is my first choice, though.

    ubaidh86,

    If you're used to getting messages back right away then you might be right. Still it could be that they're in the bathroom or something.

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    I totally agree. Texting, like email, is an asynchronous form of communication. I believe that there is no need to respond immediately to a text. If something requires immediate attention, I would probably call (synchronous)

    What if someone were really in need of help? Texting isn't evil or impossible to learn. Prevents lots of long, drawn-out conversations, too. (Just text the blabbermouths your message). Ex: "I'll be there at 6." enough said--short, sweet, efficient.
