Hello? You're holding a telephone!

................Image and video hosting by TinyPic Does anyone agree with me that text messaging or "texting" on a cell phone is just plain silly? I can't believe this way of communicating actually caught on. Especially when the device you're using is capable of transmitting and receiving voice. That's like going to a phone booth, and instead of picking up the handset to talk and hear, you just peck at the keypad to create short, sometimes cryptic sentences, and the person on the other end actually does the same thing. After ten minutes of that, you manage to get across to your friend that you had a nice time last night. On a serious note, anyone who does this while driving is a fool. Many recent accidents have occurred due to this irresponsible behavior. Just use a telephone as it was originally intended. That's just my middle aged opinion.
