the rules of texting

i’m new to texting and i am still learning. here are some preconceived notions i am trying to overcome.

  • a common occurrence around here, young trees grow on a stump using the nutrients of the decaying old treei’m a geezer. i remember when texting first came on the scene. one of the touted features of texting was its instantaneous nature. keep in mind these where pre-smart phone days. remember emails, the “other” form of electronic communication, was tied to your boat anchor called a computer. that thing was so heavy, you couldn’t move it anywhere.
  • i’m a geezer- part 2- just a few short months ago, i selectively removed vowels to get under the 160 character limit. know that i am now reformed am have been known to sent out texts in excess of 5000 characters.

through  the process of learning about texting, i have found that texting can be boiled down to three simple rules. these are important and i will share them with you in case you are new to texting, like me, or if you have been on a long lost search for the rules of texting and haven’t found them.

the three rules of texting

  1. texting is instantaneous.
  2. except when it is not.
  3. there is no hard and fast rule for a text being instantaneous or not.

if you follow these three simple rules of texting, you will never go wrong.
