CuriousJockAZ saidThe whole texting thing is getting WAY out of hand. I know people who have separation anxiety if they are away from their phone for 5 minutes.
I could not agree more with this statement. The obsession over texting has gone from annoying to infuriating to downright insane. I have actually threatened my friends cell phones with my ball peen hammer if they did not stop texting during a recent housewarming party.
Text messaging is OK sometimes, but not for entire conversations and not when you are a guest in someone else's home. I leave my cell phone at home more than I take it with me a lot of the time.
(A) Nobody's so "important" that they need to be in constant communication with their BFF's....like OMG... (me included) at the expense of good manners.
(B) There are times I don't want to be interrupted by anything less than a tsunami, armageddon or a visit from the tooth fairy.
(C) My goal is to become so wealthy that I become like Howard Hughes and am never available to anyone via telephone - ever... come to think of it, I don't need money to do that - just a knowledge of where the "off" button is on the damn thing.
