No text messages ...
So I'm not the only one who won't text.
No Steve, you're certainly not! Dumbest thing I ever heard of! Imagine if Alexander Graham Bell had invented the texting equipment and procedure, and it was in use for a hundred-plus years, and then, somebody invented this thing that you could hold up to your ear and talk into it, and a person hundreds, or even thousands of miles away could actually hear your voice by using a similar device, and could actually talk into his or her device and two people could actually carry on a normal conversation! WOW! Sure better than the dumb thing where you had to type out every word, letter-by-letter with your thumbs, right! Gimmie a break,......"kid stuff" as far as I'm concerned,.......but that's just me,......"grumpy ol' harold
I just believe it is rude to initiate a business
communication with a text ....
If someone can't pick up the phone and call me,
then they are too busy to have me do business with them ...
Everybody sees it their own way but I occasionally get a text that says, "When you have time, please call me regarding a question I have about the carburetor on my xxxxxx" or something like that. I find it courteous that they do not expect me to drop whatever I am doing to provide free information and give me the option call them when I have a moment. Some people will call and assume I have nothing to do but walk them through adjusting a carburetor or help them do a repair.
As I said, everybody sees it their own way. This is the way I see it.
The nice thing about texting is you can send a relatively unobtrusive msg. to someone without particularly interrupting something that they're into that otherwise would not want the intrusion. Then they can respond anyway they want, anytime they want, and if they want. It has it's good points. Trouble is, today's youth and the Millenials are over-using it. In 20 years when a kid is born a cell-phone will be part of the "going home package" from the hospital.
Told our girls - No text - won't read it - leave a message on my voice mail if I don't answer - I most likely have my hands full.
I had mine shut off when I started receiving religious messages I had to pay for.
You allowed to say what you are hauling to Medford NJ? That's plumb near way too close for me to not wonder..........

BTW...if anything falls off, don't worry about it at all. You can sweep out your trailer just before getting on Exit 4 of the NJ Turnpike at that hotel at the entrance as I think loose parts just may fit on a '71 Espirit 400. Haha.
For years my wife refused to have text on her phone but once she got it she found that it was a great way to communicate with my daughter, son, granddaughter, me, and some friends. It is easy and quick. And you don't have to immediately answer the phone or press a bunch of buttons to get a voicemail that says I'll call you later
I find that texting saves tons of time and increases communication Especially with my family and friends
I personally would never turn away an opportunity to communicate with my family - especially my granddaughter
That doesn't mean voice is not important but it certainly helps to get a quick message saying " I'll be a few minutes late" or "Please pick up a bottle of red wine - because Seve Jelf is coming to dinner"
And a quick "I love you" - "I love you more" - "I love you most" - "I love you infinity" exchange at bed time makes sleep better
In the 60's I did a lot of traveling to Europe and I would call home once a week to find out if there were any problems etc. Now I travel to China - because of the internet and texting I get family updates a few times or more each day.
I agree that detailed texts from unknown people is wrong but asking to make an appointment to talk is courteous -
I am leaving Monroe, Michigan on Sunday afternoon ....
This trip has changed due to Bad Weather ....
