So I was at a dinner gathering the other night when my friend called me out on my use of the word "texted." Apparently she does not like the word and it is wrong to use because it "sounds weird." She thinks that you should just say "I text you something" as opposed to "I texted you something." I told her something isn't necessarily wrong because she is annoyed by it. She further explained her theory by stating that words that end in xt never have endings like "ing" and "ed." She gave the example of "Next." She said condescendingly "Well, you wouldn't say "nexted" or "nexting, would you?" and other things to vaguely hint that I was borderline illiterate. I pointed out that no one should do that anyway since "next" is not a verb. I compared it to the word "test," which like "text" could be either a verb or noun. You would say "He tested positive for AIDS" as opposed to "He test positive for AIDS." She was still having none of it.
