I have a confession to make. It involves something that I have been doing for years. In fact, I have been doing it almost every single day for the last several years. Most days I do it multiple times and there have even been days where I do it 20 times or more.
I’m talking about texting. More specifically, I am talking about the speed at which I text. I am an extremely slow texter. I have pokey little pokers. I don’t know why I am so slow, but I do know that it presents some fairly confusing and awkward situations from time to time. For example:
A lot of times when I am responding to someone’s text I will get another text from the same person and then I don’t know what to do. Do I go ahead and finish what I am working on and send it to them or should I just exit out of my current text and see what the new one says? If I go ahead and send the text that I am in the middle of typing, it can cause major confusion if they texted me another question. Then you spend the next few texts back and forth clearing up the confusion before you can get back to the original topic.
Who knew texting could be so confusing? I guess a positive way of looking at it is that at least with texting the confusion can be cleared up pretty quickly. Much better than getting letters crossed in the mail and having to live in a state of confusion for days or even weeks. What would be even better is if you could find a way to communicate where you are able to actually hear what the other person is wanting to say, when they want to say it and they could do the same with your thoughts. Maybe someone should look into that…
