I agree with Lauren B.'s article “LOL =D” in which she states that texting can be as rude as answering a phone call. Unlike a phone call, a text message can wait, and yet people are always in a rush to read it.

I text, but I know when it is appropriate and when it isn't. I, along with many others, would prefer to have a person's attention when talking to them or presenting something to them, but many people allow themselves to get sidetracked by a text. Given that a text message will be there later, it makes me wonder what could be so important. Is it just the latest gossip or is there some legitimate emergency?

Thank you, Lauren, for bringing up this obsession that has stricken many teens and adults across the nation.
