Have any of you seen this public service announcement on You Tube? It is somewhat graphic, but I think everyone who texts while driving should watch it and think twice about doing it again. I hope this video gets the M-E-S-S-A-G-E across.
I have not quite caught the burning desire to text everyone I know. I do, however, understand that there are many benefits to texting. For one, texting gets a message to the receiver immediately and therefore you may get a quicker response back without having to call that person. It is great for the college kids who may be stuck in a lecture and cannot respond to a parent's phone call. A simple text message to let your mom know you are ok will not interrupt the class. Not to mention, texting is quicker than making that phone call.
I am sure that one day, as my kids grow older I will find a use for texting on a regular basis. Some of my text messages may include, WH5 (who, what where, when, why)? WRU@ (where are you at)? WWJD (what would Jesus do). Did you know that 143 means I love you because there is one letter in I, four letters in love and 3 letters in you. You can refer here for some more texting shorthand abbreviations. Until that time, texting is something I can live without.
What are your thoughts on the video and on texting?
