RINOS & Bull-Mooses UNITE! People Matter!

I, for one, am pretty sick of modern technology. Everyone expects everything immediately. Therefore, not much thought goes into anything. That makes for a lot apologizing, confusion, ill-conceived plans, etc.

I have had a face to fact meeting with a person, who was so busy texting that she could not say "Hello." She just nodded her head... and after a minute of standing there in silence, she said, "I'll text you." I put my hand on her phone, and said, "I don't text. I don't have a phone that I can text on. I'm right here. Do you have anything to say to me? If not, it's been nice seeing you."

She tried to answer me, but words didn't come, and her fingers kept itching to text.

I'm honestly not sure about the wiring of the brain when it comes to texting.

My wife and my step-kid text each other in the car - while I'm driving - cracks me up. It's especially funny when the whole thing boils down to needing my input and they have to explain the content of their entire text exchange. So much more efficient than having a three-way conversation once:)
