I strongly disagree with Lauren B.'s opinion in the article "LOL =D." I don't believe that texting during a conversation is rude. Lauren may not like "the constant beeping and clicking of buttons," but she doesn't know if that text is important. I understand and agree that answering the phone is rude, but texting is different. The person is still listening to your conversation. I am extremely sorry to ruin your mood, but i have to say I am all for texting, and it is not disrespectful. Thank you for your opinion Lauren, even though it is wrong.
