My company-issued cell phone has a text message feature. I don’t mind telling you that I’m not a big fan of text messages. If I need to communicate with someone, I find it much easier to simply call them. Spelling out words on an inconvenient, small and hard to read number pad is a real pain in the ass. After all, it is a phone, right?
That being said however, there is the occasional text message exchange that’s entertaining. Take for example the following series of text messages I received from my oldest daughter’s significant other…
Lea tried to trick me into watching broke back mountain I’m very upset
OMG Don’t do it! Quick go rebuild an engine or cut down a tree or something
To cold but I’ll hang some drywall
Ok remember to cuss and spit a lot and put on some loud rock music
Ok done I got Zeppelin playing at max volume should get my point across
Too high of a voice better pull out the Danzig desperate times call for drastic measures
Good plan I’ll have to switch it up when I’m done doing push ups
Did u call me with some rock music and hang up
LOL I will just needed those inspiring words thank you I think she may have fallen asleep I can make a break for it
I’ve got to admit, I probably wouldn’t have found this exchange to be as entertaining over the phone. Maybe the kids are on to something after all!
