Guess I'll Clarify

I despise having long conversations via texting. If it requires much thought, research, or more than a smiley or brief answers, I really despise it. Had one of those today and it made me grumpy. I could've just called the person in question, but didn't really want to get into it with them. *sigh*

Anyway. Hubby and kiddo both tell me I'm supremely grouchy lately. That and some other "symptoms" led me to take a pregnancy test this morning, which was a BFN (big fat negative). I'm alternately relieved and torqued that I don't have an excuse to keep being a witch so I need my attitude adjusted. le sigh.

So in summary: Brief texts are okay, long drawn out convos via txt are not, and I am most definitely NOT pregnant, just a grouch.

I completely understand. And I hate to use text terms, like LOL, etc., so my conversations are too long.

Well, for your texting friends' benefit, at least you're okay with the short ones. I hate ANY text messages. The only person who has any business texting me is my husband, and even then, only if it's "Still in meeting, delay picking me up until I call" or something like that.

And I particularly despise the texting acronyms in any situation. What the hell has happened to proper communication in this world? You think that you're still in great contact with all these people, but it's so superficial. There's nothing substantive about it. (Blogs are also starting to annoy me for the same reason - you know everyone's deepest darkest secret all without ever saying a word directly to them.)

I love texting because I hate talking on the phone.

I can understand that, BN, but doesn't mean I like it. ;)

And Treen, that's how I feel about text speak, too. Obviously I love blogging though. haha

Agree wholeheartedly.
