I hate SMS!
It might seem ironical.
But I really, really am beginning to hate SMS. Don’t get me wrong. I love the utility part… where in if you don’t want to speak to someone, you can just use a template and shoot a message.
What I do hate about SMS is the fact that people begin to replace a 1 min verbal communication by not less than 3 messages! I have seen people glued by their fingers to their mobile phones… always tapping out something… tap tap tap tap tap tap… Arrrghhh!!
First, its painful on your fingers if you overdo it, given the size of the mobile phones and their keypads. Second, its rude to do it when you are with company, especially when you are out at lunch with someone and you keep typing out your messages when the other person is trying to have a conversation.
Even technology has a time, place and circumstance for usage… ‘proper’ usage.
