    Howard related because he invented everything

    Anyway I hate texting. And yesterday at a stop light I saw a young Chinee guy texting and as he was coming to a stop I saw him busy with his phone. He's prolly dead by now.

    It's fine for sending a short message like letting a friend know you are running late, but when people want to have conversations or discussions via text they are just assholes.

    Am I the only one who sees the irony in that you are holding a device which enables you to talk to everyone you know and yet you choose to type out messages instead?

    I also hate it. But it seems like that's how most people prefer to communicate these days.

    Young folks appear to enjoy it a lot...for me it's almost an imposition. I suppose testing is work friendly in that it's OK for texts to stack up...like email.

    I still think texting is the most idiotic thing ever, sure it does serve a purpose in certain situations, but making a 30 second free call will accomplish what it takes to text in 15 minutes time. :facepalm:

    I think the last time I sent an SMS was 3 years ago, I was suffering from a respiratory infection and was having trouble staying conscious in my morning language class. So I quietly texted my wife and asked her to make an appointment with the doctor sooner then later. Not one since, because making a call saves me all the trouble and time!

    Yes, but according to Howard only one at a time, Grilling, photography, chess, one at a time.
