If you can Call why do you text...

Especially if it's a long *** conversation?

My girl, I rarely text always video call.

I hate it, when I feel it's going to go back and forth for awhile. I just make the call. It's easier.

I text or whatsapp with pretty much everyone, except my parents or in-laws.

Texting/WhatsApp is much faster and less unnecessary conversation.

why talk when u can just text? Texting is straight to the point, no awkwardness or making small talk, give you time to think what to say, no need to answer right away.

Unless you know the other party is not busy and has time to talk, a call is an imposition.

You can also pause/end a text conversation anytime without it being awkward or having to make an excuse.

Kids prefer to text. They could be sitting next to you and they will still text you

^ Lol....my son texts me in the kitchen while he’s upstairs in his bedroom.
Isn't it great to live in the 21st century where deleting history has become more important than making it.

I personally hate talking on the phone. Unless it's a scheduled call, I never pick up. Also, if you want to speak with a group of people it's way easier just to create a chat group. You can also not respond to a text until your are ready to commit, not possible with a call.

Talking takes time, but build a relationship between friends and family. Those small talks is what builds a relationship.

Text is for straight to the point on things that are not urgent. Text takes longer to manage several different topics.

I text my friends most of the time, but I still call them when I have time and want to chat about several topics.

Also, meeting up with friends and family also builds a relationship.

Text during the day because people are busy. Text because they can respond when they are free. Not everyone has the luxury to make video calls during the day.

I only call if I need an immediate answer, otherwise text/message. Phone calls take your focus away from doing other things.

texting takes more time to get the same message across, so this is my biggest beef with it
I find some people are "affraid" to call and hide behind a text message, especially when they are sending the following:
1) birthday invitations
2) baptism invitations
3) holy communion invitations
4) Hallowe'en party invitations
5) Christmas party invitations

It gets on my nerves. just pick up the phone and call, sometimes these people are sending a full on invitation card too over text, a card they either paid someone to design or designed herself, over a text message, so professional., its always the same 4 people who text invites
and when they ask about my mom who does NOT have text messaging, i tell them: SORRY, she does not use wahtsapp, or Sms or face time or RCS, you have to actually CALL her or MAIL HER an invite, they kinda get upset or i can sense their frustration but you know what? they actually caved in and mailed my mom a card once ,haha i can tell they were frustrated, but guess what? NOT EVERYONE texts, especially senior citizens
