Maybe I’m old school, but I like to text a quick note only. Let you know I’m on my way or I’m thinking of you. But if I want to ‘talk’ then I don’t like to do it via texting. Maybe it’s the fact that autocorrect writes the craziest stuff that I don’t catch until after I’ve pushed ‘send’ which can be really embarrassing! Or that I have had texts taken the wrong way because you don’t know the intonation of the speaker or writer. Example: Are you joking? Or are you being bratty? And depending on the mood the receiver’s in, there can be a ton of misunderstandings unless it’s something simple and kind.
I have friends who like to text…a lot! And I’m not ok with it so I will pick up the phone to talk with them and they’re like, I was texting you. Yeah, I get it but I don’t want to read paragraphs when we could have a quick chat and be done. :). I hate watching those bubbles and waiting for the letters to appear!
Am I so out of the loop? Obviously you can tell I’m 50+ because I prefer that person to person contact more than texting. Are you ok with it? Do you write/text paragraphs too? Do you get annoyed with people like me to who will call mid-text instead of texting the full conversation?
