I Hate Texting

Originally posted on Rosie Culture:
It’s no secret that everyone is glued to their phones. Some people love to bash the way we use technology. They get aggravated over cell phone use at dinner and kids always taking selfies. But really, it’s no different than when we used to plop ourselves down in front of the tv or spend 45 minutes setting up a camera to film something. I love technology, I love social media, I love taking pictures and videos, I find phone calls uncomfortable, but I hate texting. I got my cell phone a little bit later in life than most people.

Yesterday I had to work, which was fine, but just before I was about to start my supervisor asked me if I could work extra next Thursday. I thought that was alright and fine, but I asked my parents about two hours later and apparently we’ve got this family dinner thing at my grandparents’. I was feeling so guilty, because I had already told my supervisor I could work, but then I had to tell her I couldn’t. So at the end of my break I tried to find her to tell her, but I couldn’t. Then I had to decided to wait until after work or to call her on a work phone. I don’t like calling people, it just makes me really uncomfortable. However, I also couldn’t wait until after work, because she might want to ask someone else to work. After a couple of minutes of feeling my heart beating in my chest I just picked up the phone and called her. I was so…
