I really don't understand the need, much less the desire to text. It's a pain in the ass IMO. You have something to say? Call me and say it. I've trained people long ago that I don't text so if they send me one do not expect a reply. And worse still people waling around clueless banging into people and shit because they're texting. Restaurants, theaters, et al. Jesus, in Skyfall last week this chick in front of me starts texting and of course her phone is shinging like a beacon so I say really loudly, 'Excuse me, but that's REALLY distracting!' she apologizes and puts it away. Really? You're paying to be distracted by a movie and then you'd rather text than watch it? The fuck?!
I'd like to see a movement where businesses join the Farraday Cage Club and no cell phone use at all is permitted. I would happily frequent their establishments.
