These are a pain to send, because I have to use the number pad for each letter, cycling through to get to the right one.
Example, for those of you who never used a phone this ancient: If I want to say, "Hello," I have to go to the number 4, which has the letters GHI on it, toggle past the G to the H, select it, then wait a couple seconds. Then I go to number 3 (DEF) toggle to the E, select it, wait, then to 5 JKL, toggle to the L, select it, wait, select it again, then to 6, MNO, toggle to O ...
It takes longer to do it than it did to say it, so I don't use the message function unless I have no other choice. Sometimes I get messages, and responding to them will thus be terse.
Now and again, I get a call or message that was not intended for me. Got one of those last night:
"Here's the deal. I've always faked it to get it over with. But I really just don't want to do that with you. I think it can happen. So I refuse to fake it."
It was late, and I didn't feel like fooling with it, so I didn't. But this morning, I got another one:
"I'm heading up to your neck of the woods. :)"
Hmm. They didn't know they were talking to me and somebody might be getting a surprise. However embarrassing it might be for the sender, I needed to let them know I wasn't the guy they thought I was. I texted back "Wrong number."
Got a response: "Sorry."
Never a dull moment ...
