So, apparently, do millions of others.
Do you think you (and/or anyone else here) could please articulate for me the great attraction of texting? I'm seriously interested to know why it's so addictive for so many. I just don't get it. What puts it head and shoulders over emailing, for instance, much less actually talking on the phone?
LL, This one is easy to answer but like most things is not a one size fits all thing. Personally I am definitely not addicted but it is simply a question of convenience. The ability to communicate directly and get to the point without the need to get into a long winded discussion about the weather. It was always kinda mysterious to me as well. I have a family member (cousin) who lives in Pueblo, CO and she hounded me forever about my intractability. Once I had a phone with that capability she was the first person I sent a text to, It's fascinating and very very efficient. The owner of Peg Legs is friend of mine and he once told me he manages his business almost exclusively thru the use of texting. Hope this helps LL.
ps . . . . come toward the light! lol
