So i've noticed lately that a lot of people with phones are really into texting. Of course, there's nothing unusual about that. Texting is an easy way to get ahold of friends. I've begun to notice though friends just sitting around and texting. Anyone else think that is kind of dumb? I mean, you text to keep in touch with friends. Why would you do that if you're already with a friend? Why not try actually interacting with that friend?

Any thoughts?

Yes. I always argue with a friend of mine because we'll hang out and she'll spend half the time on her phone. It pisses me off and I don't understand it.

Well, I suppose you could text your friend beside you as you talk to him to get twice the amount of interaction in.
But I don't have a cell phone, so meh.

It's not sad when people text more than they talk
some people (i.e. me) have plans with really limited minutes, but practically unlimited texting, so it is much more worthwhile/better on the wallet to text.

We're not saying "text more than they talk" as in more than they talk on the phone, but rather more than they talk in real life.

Then I am a freak. I text frequently, in fact I just sent two while I was typing this.

It's also useful for talking while in class. :p

EDIT: when you talk about it like that, it's about even because I am always either testing or talking

My sister seems to think that texting negatively affects people mentally because it decreases their social skills, supposedly.

I text more than i talk, because it's easier. I'm not much of a talker. I'd rather sit there quietly and text.

Not, of course, when the person I'm texting is right beside me or anything, but, I'd rather text than talk on the phone with someone.

schools are starting to put these things in class rooms that mess up your cell phones signal and will kill your battery within like 45 minutes to stop class texting. at least where i live anyway.

I rarely use my phone when i'm not drinking, apart from getting peoples numbers. And the only times I use my phone when i'm drinking is to get someone to pick me up, or i'm looking for someone who I was drinking with that are out of my sight.
But I do see it alot, but atleast its not as bad as the cunts who spend every spare second of their time talking on the phone.

This.

And if you're with a friend, texting another friend isn't that big of a deal.

I never said it was a big deal. I just don't understand the point.

I'm not a big fan of text, but then again, I only use my phone for arranging meetings/band rehearsals and shit. I'm a face-to-face person, text just makes conversation too distant.
