Seriously, this is possibly the worst form of communication. People you barely know find it completely acceptable to send you whatever they want because they hide behind some bright screen that’s fucking up my eye sight and giving me carpal tunnel.
Any form of texting falls into this category: emails, apps, Facebook chat, snail mail, name it. There are all these unspoken rules, like apparently the coolest form of flirting is acting like you don’t give a damn. For me that is hard, I over think everything. I give a damn about most things (clean dishes, Big Brother 15, Did I take my birth control on time?).
I was prancing around Beverly Hills in my Gap dress, not giving a fuck, when I texted Short Stop about getting drinks with gal pal, Simbi (It’s short for Simberly). He was busy and responded with hanging out later this week. I go to respond immediately after reading and it was as if a moped in Spain was about to run over me.
Simbi told me to wait before texting back. I get it, otherwise I look desperate. Does anyone else find this stupid? After eight minutes, I respond with a simple and thought out, “K haha have a great night.”
Can anyone in the audience point out what is wrong with that sentence?
If you said the period, you are correct. What was once a nice text message became bitchy with one simple punctuation. I never meant for it to be taken like that. The conversation just continued to go downhill.
In the words of Barney Stinson, we should all just Lemon Law it. If you want to text them, do just that. Screw the games, they are overrated and I want to spend my time drinking cheap margaritas with someone who can hang out spontaneously.
