I have a friend that I strictly communicate with through texting and sometimes email. When we first started texting , our texting styles seemed the same. Things lately have changed.
Here is an example of the way my friend has been texting lately.
Me : Hi
Friend: What ya doing?
Me: Cleaning , you?
An hour later :
Friend :Sorry had to do such and such
Me : No problem
Me: did you get my email ?
Friend"what ya doing?'
Me : nothing much, did you get my email?
Friend:what ya doing?
Me: nothing exciting, you?
Friend: working, brb
Me: no problem
Friend: (silence for two days)
For me, if I am bothering to text someone to say hi or ask what they are up to, that means I want to have a conversation with them (even a small one) . I understand that things come up while texting which is no big deal. Usually the person says sorry have to go, nice talking to you or something.
Would this type of texting that I described above annoy you? Is there such thing as texting etiquette , besides being polite?
