    I know most (if not all) of you good folk have experienced this at one point or another.

    One of your shmuck friends throws you a text simply saying "Hey" or "Yo."

    I, naturally, reply back with a "Whats up?" or a "Whats going on?".

    I dont mean those things as being friendly, I just want you to get to the point of your text.

    Only to get this as a rebuttal "Nothing much. You?"

    This is NOT ok. If someone is going to text you, it should be straight and to the point.

    Niketalk: What part of the game is this?

    Discuss.

    I know a chick that does that, she sends one or two messages. To make matters worse she always got some long, complex story to tell.

    Stupid statement.

    People need to use text sometimes, just dont use it for mindless conversation.

    Something tells me you do this.

    Get more than 200 or 0 texts. That's what I did. I hated it too when I only had 200, so I switched to 1,500. Now I don't care.

    I don't see anything wrong with it AS LONG AS the recipient has free incoming texts or whatever. It's not like they make you respond.So while I'll allow you your pet peeve, as we all have them, I wouldn't go so far as to agree that pointless texts are in bad taste. It's good tobe reminded that there are people thinking about you, isn't it?

    Not some , all are [​IMG] ...

    The point is people , text messages should be quick notes about a certain topic, not a continuous back and forth relay that could easily be taking care of inone 5 minute conversation .. By the 3rd reply I just type, call me ...

    CLUB [​IMG] look up top .. i know you aint see that ahahahaaaaa

    [​IMG] It's the back and forthness of it all that makes texting worth thetime of day. I don't "text notify". I prefer actual conversation.
