Text Messages That Don’t Need to be Sent
We have become a society of texting fools. It has gotten to the point that people will send you to voicemail if you call them but will answer a text right away. This is especially true in younger people. Gawker has come up with a list of annoying texts that don’t need to be sent. I completely agree with a few of them.
- Long Stories – If your text is longer than a few sentences, send an email or a Facebook message instead. Long text messages are annoying to read AND annoying to respond to.
- That You’re Bailing on Plans Last-Minute – People do this all the time: They decide they don’t want to meet up, so they just text the other person with something like, “Sorry, turns out I can’t make it.” It’s just impersonal and rude.
- A Text Message Just to Correct a Spelling Mistake – Let’s say you spell the word “drink” with and “m” instead of an “n.” Trust me, the person receiving the message will know what you meant. There’s no need to send a text clarifying it. Unless your auto-correct is WAY off and throws in a word that changes what you meant.
That covers the big three for me. What texts do you find to be a complete waste of time? Comment below and click share!
