I have a few friends like this, and they are close friends. I'll send them a message or a title of a song they should listen to, and I will 1/10 times get a reply. Like wtf? You talk to me everyday at school/work, you hang out with me ALL the time! Why can't you reply to my stinkin' text messages.

Now, I understand some people just aren't "texters" or they are too lazy to reply, but come on! It's common courtesy to at least acknowledge the person who want's to talk to you by saying something like, "cool" or "okay" heck even "k" is better than not replying at all, especially if its something important or urgent like a project that's due or a situation where I need crucial info.

What do you guys/gals think about people who don' reply to texts, because they are too lazy to type a few characters.

edit:

Inb4 hipsters saying texting is lame and they still call people on their brick phones.

Do You Word All Of Your Texts Like This? With All Capital First Letters? I Wouldn't Respond Either.

Seriously though, it annoys me if it's about plans or something. Other than that, I don't really care. I'm guilty of not replying a lot as well.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

Not if they don't have unlimited texts. Then it's just wasting a text on one word.

I agree. I didn't have unlimited until this year. I only have a few friends with limited texts, so I understand THEM. But I know that most of my friends have unlimited texting, and they still don't take advantage of it.

If I gave a shit about etiquette with communication, I'd just call you. Unless I'm asking you a question or having a conversation, I don't expect a response to a text, and you shouldn't expect me to give one.

If its urgent I call first. They don't pick up, I text so maybe they will check and get the message I wanted to tell them. Either way, they will be able to see what I wanted to tell them without having to call me.

Not really. A 'hi' text, maybe. But I don't understand the point in acknowledgement if they didn't want to talk about it anyways, so I wouldn't be offended. As long as I know they got it, I really don't care. Besides, if you want to talk about it so badly, then why not... you know...actually talk about it next time?

don't text people pointlessly (or, you can, but don't get mad when they don't respond). don't assume that anyone wants to have a conversation with you through texts.

i dislike how so many people are glued to their phones nowadays, so i consciously avoid pulling out my phone unless i really want or need to check something. i'll respond to the first text or two if it's a question or something really brilliant and interesting, but after that i'm probably going to stop.

I'm somewhere in the middle. For instance my band's drummer is the busiest mother ****er on the planet and rarely answers my texts or calls. Gives me the shits massively.
On the other side of it, if I dont text my girlfriend back within about 15 mins she gets pissed at me. She needs to chill the **** out.

I will sometimes reply to texts like that with one word. I really can't stand having conversations via texting. Some people just love that shit.

And that's all I really want. As long as I know they got my text and are mildly intrested in what im telling them/have to say, i'm good. My text-conversations last like 10 texts max. Usually after that the conversation gets boring and dull.

I only like text conversations if it's a quick back and forth type thing. That's nice because I don't have to worry about anything and can still say exactly what I wanna say.

Unless you hit send before checking that your auto-correct changed a slightly misspelled "sock" to "c o c k". Then you wish you just called them.

I only use my phone in emergencies, if it wasn't for that then I wouldn't even own one. My friends have gotten used to the fact I'm much more likely to respond by literally any other line of communication. It still pisses them off, but it's not their choice to make.

i answer text messages at my own pace. but i do eventually answer every message where an answer is expected. i have a habit of ignoring my phone when i'm busy at school or playing a game or talking to someone irl or whatever, so the messages stack up (lol not that popular) until i have a dull moment where i'd rather be tethered to my phone.
i don't know why i feel so dry

Maybe when it comes to getting my friends to text back. But I don't spam or send useless texts. If im annoying outside the realm of texting, then i'm the most chill, relaxed,"annoying" person ever.
