texting or calling?

A few days ago I realized that I prefer texting people rather than calling and talking to them. There are so much more advantages like :
  • You don't have to hear their voice.
  • You stick to the point. You only text what you want to.
  • No unwanted news or piece of gossip will come out unless your'e really stupid and have no control of what you type.
  • You don't waste too much money on texts.
  • Talking to someone takes up too much time.

There are a few disadvantages as well :

  • You can't listen to their voice.
  • You can't type that much in one go which makes you just stick to the point.
  • You can't gossip all that much. It's not as much fun when you sms gossip and news.
  • Sometimes calling someone is cheaper than texting.
  • For people who text slowly, calling is way faster.

Texting/SMS-ing also has the additional disadvantage of not being able to convey emotions... eg: How will you convince your girlfriend/boyfriend to go out for a movie? the coaxing element has to have that pleading voice to add masala.. Right?

Clover said...

sirpy said...
