Seriously folks, is it too much to ask to pick up the phone and talk to someone? It seems as if the norm anymore is to just text someone. Where is the personality in that? Where is the human emotion in it? I’m sorry, I just don’t get it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a texter,but I’m not a texter like some people I know.
Where do you draw the line? When did it become so hard to pick up the phone and actually talk to someone. Have we as a whole forgotten how to do that? If someone tells you they are having a bad day, or even tells you about something amazing that has happened to them in their life, why not just pick up the phone and call them? Where is the heart felt meaning in a text that says “I’m so sorry, what can I do for you?” or “Congratulations! I’m happy for you”. It took you all of 10 seconds to type that and there could not have been very much emotion in involved in that. I mean, is your life THAT busy that actually dialing my number is that far fetched?
Sometimes I get busy and texting is just easier. Sometimes I have so much going on that I’d much rather text you because it’s all I have time for, and well…calling you would take too much time and effort. There are times when I really don’t want to show any emotion at all and the mere thought of having to act like I care is too much to bear, because an actual phone conversation would mean..gasp..I’d actually have to talk to the other person on the phone and inject some sort of care to said person. Don’t get me wrong, I have my days where I love a good phone conversation, but then there are those days where the sound of my phone ringing sends me walking in the other direction. I know I know..Kettle meet pot.
Anyway, aside from ALL that, there are times when it just is necessary to pick up the phone and make a phone call.
Or have you forgotten my phone number?
