In a world of near lightning speed communication, texting fits right into the landscape. Codes, initials, abbreviations are all important when communicating where to meet someone, what time to rendez-vous, or how many lattes are needed. But, if you want to express a negative emotion, texting will bite you in the butt big time.
You’re upset about an argument you had with your mate the night before. Try talking about it to him or her in a text and you’ve doused the fire with gasoline. Nothing like truncated, staccato-type language to mess up a communication. Throw a few sarcastic quips into the mix and you’ve got a bigger problem than you started with.
Has anyone reading this ever resolved a conflict through texting … really. If so, I want your secret.
