    I swear I want to punch this nigga. I just need a few answers and I don't want to talk on the fucking phone. If motherfucker doesn't want to talk to me he should just say so. :fil:

    my cousin, one year older than me, cannot figure out how to text. her daughter (34 yrs old) has been trying to teach her to use an ipad for more than a year now. everyone else in the family texts me, but for her i have to use the phone. other than business calls, she is the only voice calls i make.

    I hate talking on the phone. I make an exception for my mother because she won't text but everyone else can fuck off. If they can't text they are dead to me.

    Texting is for fags.

    Why you want your folks to be fags like you?

    My dad would have to text me from his grave, and, I doubt my mom could figure how to send a text, as she can barely dial a phone these days; she is 88 years old, though.

    Great thread, #10.

    This didn't turn ultra-depressing and shit.

    I don't have a lot of patience for a full-blown text conversation, or IM, or any of that because my brain works faster than what can transpire by typing. If it is something that can be done briefly, that's fine, but if it is an involved discussion just call already.

    Yep. Other than discussing doughhead63 and Mlaw's dead pappies this thread has been mostly positive.
