@OctBride-2012:  get with the times! everyone texts. EVERYONE. Even my lovely 50+ mother. Since you are talking about your ‘generation’ I am considering you are ‘older’.

@raisedonrobbery:  +1 My dad is a senior executive in his 50’s and communicates via text, email, IM all the time both at work and not at work. I hate when people make comments like that as a passive aggressive put down. 

OP, glad she apologized. I don’t understand why people care so much about these things–enough to embarrass a good friend publicly. Hopefully it was a one time thing.

@peasantsong: Talking to people outright has nothing to do with being morally superior.  It has to be with being a grown up.  Texting is for short messages not conversations.

You asked for advice.  I gave you my advice. Do whatever you want but there is no reason to attack me because you don’t like it.  Now I can undertstand why you got so upset with your friend on Facebook.  As I said before if you look for drama you will find it.  You looked…you found (i.e., created).Good luck to you.

@raisedonrobbery:  I’m in my mid-40s and only have a cell because I have a blackberry for work.  90% of the time it’s either off or dead.  🙂  I do use it for short texts but never for coversations.  😉

Honestly, I’d probably just tell her to stop being a fucking twat and get over her jealousy issues.

@OctBride-2012:  times have certainly changed. I don’t even own a land line. My cell phone is my only way of communication and I will have full on convo’s through texting that can last alllll day long. It’s awesome. I understand that you aren’t like that, but most young people are. That’s how it is now. You may consider it sad but to us, it’s just the way it is because it’s an extremely easy way to communicate with multiple people at once.

@OctBride-2012:  I completely agree and I’m from the age of texting!  It’s pretty bad when friends of mine are legit “scared” to use the phone to call a girl to make a date, or order a pizza!  I know people that would rather go hungry then use the phone to call in an order.  If they can’t order online, they’re lost.  It’s ridiculous!

Not to say I don’t text – I do – all the time! But, some conversations need to be had verbally or face to face.

This reminds me of when I posted something about my legs being sore from a 5 mile bike ride (something I never do nor post about), and suddenly the sister of a friend has a status about “I just love it when people have to throw it in everyone’s face that they’re sore because they’re working out. did you know I work out? I worked out today. it was a mistake…a sexy, sexy mistake.”

Uh, whatever, b.
