The Trouble with Texting

E70F9892-C904-4EDC-AB6C-EA17BD577BE7

Reading.

Forgetting to respond.

Thinking I responded. But didn’t.

Getting interrupted mid-text and wandering off.

Comprehending (or not) texting shortcuts and abbreviations.

Misunderstandings.

Autocorrect.

Hitting send too early.

Emojis that don’t mean what you think they mean.

Fat fingers.

Replying to the wrong person.

Once said, always said. Leaving a virtual paper trail.

Screenshots.

Cyber vs face-to-face relationships

 

In light of these snafus:

Read twice. Send once.

 

To me. Just do it. READ twice. Send once.
