Am I the only person who loathes texting?
The little screen, the tapping thumbs, the acronyms, the time-lags, the parade of emoticons - let's face it - texting can be inefficient & it's ripe for misunderstandings.
We use acronyms to save time, and yet a phone call is often faster. IMHO we would be better off talking IRL or OTP because ICYMI, PPL are confusing AF on text TBH. Ya dig? SMH...
Sure, it's useful to text time sensitive notes like: "I'm running late", "Can you pick up milk", but we also use it for introductions, full conversations, flirting, apologies and even (ouch) sending condolences.
It's like we've all gone back 120 years to use the telegram machine [stop]

Why have we moved backwards? [stop]
Is it detrimental to our relationships? [stop]
