Talking or Texting
I prefer to text, not talk. (I know, that’s kinda lame for an air-personality. It would be like putting satellite radio in my car!)
What I think of most, are my youngest kids. I’m around them quite a bit and they can’t even begin to think of a day without texting. Both of them sleep with their phones and check for texts in their sleep. I’m not exaggerating. I watched Selena do it this morning, and I’ve seen Taylor go into a full-blown panic when her phone loses a charge!!
I’m constantly pushing how to meet a person, look them in the eye and have a firm handshake. Basic enough. However, in this day of texting, will our kids be able to handle things one-on-one? I’m noticing more and more people don’t look you in the eye. They shake hands like a rubber band, and I don’t know if they’ve ever even left a voice-mail for a stranger. You can’t text in a job interview. Of course, we had a party line and rotary phone when I was a kid. What do I know?
