Texting Makes Our Lives Easier

Day 7 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing? Day 7 already?! Man, it feels like we’ve been at this for an afternoon. Where does the time go?


I love texting.

Actually, what I really dig is technology and how certain advances in it make our lives easier. Don’t get me wrong though, there are aspects to technology that are evil too, but we won’t get into that right now.

I don’t see texting as a replacement for live voice conversations on the telephone device thing. I still have those and I believe that they should remain a part of our lives.

Texting is simply another layer of communication and actually helps us to be more productive in some ways by facilitating communication between parties. This is true in certain businesses and projects. Texting actually saves us time since you can send or receive instructions that are to the point, omitting any superfluous dialogue.

For example:

Nicky: Our banner is messed up. Fix it.
Me: Did you mess with it?
Nicky: No. Just fix it.
Me: OK. But how did it get that way?
Nicky: I don’t know. Is it fixed?
Me: Give me a minute!
Nicky: shut up
Me: No you shut up.
Nicky: No you
Me. No you.
Nicky: you
Me: you.
Nicky: you
Me: you!
Nicky: You first.
Me: Make me
Nicky: Don’t think I won’t.
Me: Ask me if I care.
Nicky: Do you care?
Me: It was rhetorical. It’s fixed.
Nicky: Good.
Me. Bye.

And that’s how texting can save you time and help you be more productive in life.
