This morning I was relaxing, about 8:00 in the morning, when I received a text from my DIL. She and family were on a weekend trip, and she had sent about 10 photos in this text, which went to about 10 people.
The first person replied all – something to the effect of Have a nice trip.
2nd person also.
So far, not too bad.
Then person number 3 had to like each of the 10 photos, as well as the 2 previous comments. So I received 12 more messages.
Not to be outdone, person #4 decided to do the same.
Within less than 5 minutes I had received over 30 texts, only 3 of which actually said anything. Is this really necessary? Am I wrong in thinking that’s it rude to “like” everything? And if there is a way to turn this off please let me know! 1201-18
My family blows up the cell phones with texts every once in a while. We tend to devolve into sending GIF animations. As long as it’s restricted to once every 2 months or so, none of us has a real problem with it.
There is a setting on most smart phones that allows you to silence a particular conversation so you don’t hear the constant alerts of a new message.
