Hello. My name is brran1, and I’m a chronic texter.
On average, I send about 2000 text messages a month, and I recieve around the same amount if not more. Having a SideKick (or any phone with a QWERTY keyboard for that matter) makes it 10 Billion times easier to send messages. And in my opinion, it’s an easier option versus holding a hot sweaty (any person knows that when you’re on the phone for an extended period of time, the screen gets smudged some kinda way) cell phone. Outside of maybe 5-7 people, I communicate mainly through text messages/instant message. Who wants to sit on the phone with a bunch of random folks all day? I don’t.
Last Friday, while on Twitter, Tiffany In Houston (what up TIH!) sent me the link to a story on The Wall Street Journal’s website that talks about how clumsy some idiots are certain people are causing injury to themselves and how texting while moving is starting to become a public nuisance. My thing is, as an adult, how can you be so occupied by something, that you could end up walking into a two by four or walking into a ditch? Don’t get me wrong, I sure do glance down when sending texts (rarely), but I’m not going to be so occupied with sending a message that I end up causing injury to myself or others because of it.
Random Thought of the Moment: “Watch, I wrote this, and a week from now, I’ll trip over my own feet while texting.”
