To Text or Not to Text: This really is the question
So, maybe this post will be a little bit more thoughtful than my other posts, but I truly am contemplating this. A while ago Oprah had a show on the many car accidents caused by texting. I was watching this and completely amazed. First: Why would anyone text and drive? Especially with children in the car. (Along the same lines as doing your makeup while driving....never understood that either...). Second: I believe that texting is more evidence that the world is trying to move too quickly each day. I have realized that because of texting, I don't talk to many people that I used to LOVE talking to. I MISS it terribly. AND, from a teaching standpoint, I believe that texting is creating not only poor communication skills, but also bad grammer etc. However, from a business standpoint (Thanks Ty) I completely understand how texting can help you out a bit. I'm not completely against texting, but what is wrong with a phone call? It takes just as long! Seriously, I'm thinking about not texting, but calling and seeing how I like it. What are your thoughts on the whole texting issue?
