The vast majority of us have cell phones and text.

Personally, I'm not a fan of texting. I do use text for short conversations. I do mean short.
If the person I'm communicating with decides to have some long text conversation, I almost always respond with CALL ME. If they don't, my responses get very short, I terminate the conversation or, if necessary I'll call them.

I have a very low tolerance for text conversations that take more than two or three texts. It takes so much less effort and time to get a whole lot more information passed back and forth in a call versus a long winded text conversation. Just the way I see it. Especially if I'm behind the wheel or on my Valkyrie.

Text messages hold up in court.
I understand exactly what you're saying. I don't know when the art of conversation died but it certainly seems to have left.

Ask Roger.

He can probably do it while tooling along at 140MPH.

I mean, it only takes a couple of seconds, am I right?

Myself?

I only use texting to tell someone from the Millenial generation to call me. Apparently they don't even LOOK at their voicemail messages.

Plus, none of them can spell for sh*t so texting fits the bill perfectly.

Now get off my lawn.

I prefer voice- because the conversation happens then and there.

A text conversation can take hours.

"Hi, pick me up?"

"Where?"

"Parking lot"

"When? "

"15 minutes"

If any of those "back and forths" aren't sent, the one side is sitting there waiting for the other to reply.

A phone call gets the job done.

You guys sound like a bunch of grumpy old men. And I mean that in the nicest way! (you grumpy old farts)

I would much rather text than listen to someone go on and on about some subject that I'd not rather listen to. I can get to a text at my pace and not be forced to drop my video controller to answer the damn phone. Now I sound grumpy. Great.

"Socially impaired"? Maybe. "Adolescents"? Not in many, many years. Generally speaking, unless I know someone, I'd prefer not to interact with them. I'd rather be as impersonal as I can be unless it's family, a friend or business related. That's just me and I'm not alone.

The problem isn't texting. It the lack of being able to put a sentence together and get your point across. People hate texting me because I will write a book.
Yes I will blow up your phone untill you know what the **** I'm talking about.
If you answer with "ok" expect me to ask another question if I still don't know what the **** you want.
What is so hard about putting more than 4 words together?

You can send a voice message. WeChat is big here in China and I get voice messages often. Easier for native Chinese speakers to send me a voice message in English than to type it out.

If it's short and a non emergency that has no sense of urgency, I text. I have made a few people mad because I have gotten urgent texts but I didn't see them or the urgency didn't translate. Of coarse I have to explain to them if it's urgent, it needs to be a phone call.

I schedule and dispatch service technicians. I use a desk phone - its tied right into our switchboard. But increasingly, I get some callers who try to text me here at the desk phone. It don't work that way! Or, some callers want ME to text them something... Which I can't do unless I use my cell phone, and then soon enough they're calling (or texting) me on the cell phone and not the desk phone which is what they're supposed to use. The desk phone is the number on our website and on all our paperwork, NOT my cell phone. Maybe next time we get new (desk) phones, they will be able to text, but until then, just CALL.

I view texting as another way of saying "I have something I want to tell you but you're not worth the effort an actual phone call to you would take".

Texting allows the user to watch TV, surf the web or do anything else they'd rather do than actually make that phone call.

Unfortunately, texting is the new way to communicate so the art of conversation is just about on it's last legs.

It depends on the nature of the conversation, but in general I prefer calls.

For conversations, I prefer calling. I can't stand just idly going back and forth with texting. Also, of course, anything urgent. I do not conduct any formal business with texts, either. Everything is through calls and e-mails. I also prefer calls to e-mails. I prefer face-to-face above everything else.

For group planning, I prefer texts. Can get multiple inputs and everyone can see it. E-mails also work for this but e-mails are more formal and less urgent. I also use texts for things that aren't important topics of conversation. I don't want to interrupt whatever you're doing for my dumb question. I text it, you get back to me whenever you have time.

I dont text. My GPS links to my cellphone, so all my calls in and out, emails, etc is done by voice command. Yes it even reads my incoming emails out to me. I have this miraculous ability to see out a windshield and talk & hear ALL AT THE SAME TIME Some of you stupid people wreck tuning your radio or setting your ac. Im amazed some of you can even work a gas and brake pedal...you know how many wreck pushing the wrong one ?

The entire issue with texting is originally it was based off of having a conversation at your convenience, however in this world everyone expects what they want when they want and don't feel like they should have to wait. Everyone knows that if they send me a txt, it may be days before I respond and thats that. If they expect a quick response, call me.

Could it possibly be that they think you might be busy and could call when you have a free minute or two?

I suppose what they should have said was, call me when you have a free minute. Shrug

I text mostly, it has saved my bacon a few times when a buyer/seller claimed something other than the facts, and I can print out the texts.

Real men can answer 99.99 questions in short replies, so what is the problem.. how much info you need..
Does the car run /yes
bla bla bla.. I have always hated talking on the phone even pre cell phone..
Texts you can reply back to at anytime, phone rings you have to answer it, as many can't be bothered leaving a message.. So you don't know if it is/was important or just a random question.. Then you have to stop everything and call back.. cause you don't know if it is important or not..
I have noticed that those that are blowhards or to be nice good used car sales men hate texting as they can't try to reel you in with the b/s..

Text. Like E.Furgal states, it is written. I suppose it is how a person runs their day?

I find it great to have written word when doing my job. I can have dimensions, supplies, and what ever else is needed text right to me. I can send out requests, direct people, and let a customer know when something is supposed to happen. Many of my customers prefer this over the constant calling.

I generally do not answer my cell phone. I direct calls to the voice mail if important. I just cannot do actual work, then pause 20 plus times a day to receive calls.

It depends on where I am, what I am doing and how much information is to be exchanged.

In a car? Neither, it can wait until I get where I am going.

Work? Text if it's not urgent if it's an emergency then text and call. If you need to talk to me about a lot of stuff, then call me and leave a message. I will call you back as soon as possible unless I happen to not be busy in a tractor or something when you call. Then I might be able to answer when you call.

Home? Text if short or call if long.

In a store? Preferably text not matter how long it is as I can text back while walking around getting what I need. If I'm still texting when I leave the car, I either call them or inform them I will be driving and will answer in however many minutes it will take me to get to my next stop. If I call, I sit in the parking lot until I'm done.

Each is a tool that gets used in different situations.

The business of life and traveling makes text 100 times more useful for me.
Plus I have time to think about a proper thourough response.
There is always email too....

But with texing technique matters. Seems simple right?
Some people (and I cant for te life of my figure out why), think they need to only put 4 words in a text.
So if they actually have something to say they send you 12 texts instead of one longer one. Its annoying.

Avoiding emotions. People use to used the phone the same way. Rather talk on the phone than look someone in the eye. Text take that on step further. Now they can just say you didn't understand the text.

Where is that just listen font
I wish smart phone hadnt caught on so much. I rely on it too much and itch if I am not connected. Hope to do something about that soon.
I would still rather have human contact but on the road there isn't much else.

Whatever. Normal people with brains can do that. Just because you cant dont mean everyone else cant. I know I can because Ive done that for 50 years. I can also walk and see where im going at the same time. I can EVEN blink BOTH eyes together...

But apparently, without realizing it, you've lost the ability to use the apostrophe key and use correct contractions.

Who's to say you haven't lost a step or two behind the wheel?
