    Sometimes I'll just ignore text for a few days, just so folks will know I'm cool and illusive. It increases the mystery. Cheers!

    Are you the guy that made a text offer on my items I was selling then suddenly went silent? You do this often I'm discovering. Heh heh heh.

    Does ignoring texts mean you're cool? That would make me the coolest guy alive. But I thought ignoring texts just means you're ignoring texts.

    =O.

    You're using a Snark for spell-checking? Now THAT's cool!

    It's not being beholden to tech. It's being a good person.

    A joke from a pal....it can sit

    We still on for rehearsal? Don't be a jerk.

    I think it’s good to ignore texts that don’t require a quick response. It sets the standard that you aren’t a slave to the phone or someone who must always respond to the whim of another. What if you’re, you know, living your life instead?

    Remember the good ole days of an answering machine with a tape inside? Seems like we got on ok like that.

    a person who can only spell a word one way is not too creative.

    If I get a text, I answer it. Otherwise, they could call and I'd hate that.

    I answer texts, but phone calls forged about it.
