A random digression…
I can’t STAND group texts…especially when the other names don’t come up. You know what that means? It means that I have NO IDEA who the other recipients are.
I don’t give my number out on purpose – people ask, and I respond by asking for theirs. (So I can never call.) So I’d rather NOT have YOU give it out on my (non-consenting) behalf.
And what about the annoying barrage of “who’s this?” or “who else is on here?”s?
The kicker, though…? The bajillion, text replies that follow, sending my phone into a flurry of continuous, randomized convulsions. I feel like a hostage crisis might be less irksome – I could just tell you to your face to leave me alone (or not respond all together and be singled out as the crazy, silent one in the bunch.)
May I just say… A R G !
