31% of cell phone owners who use text messaging prefer to be contacted by text, rather than voice. Does this describe you?
I’d prefer to text if I really just want to tell someone one thing and don’t necessarily want to have a full conversation. I sometimes avoid making phone calls just because I don’t feel like making small talk but I know if I wait I’ll forget what I wanted to tell them.
I also really wish Paul wouldn’t be so stubborn and would learn to at least check for phone messages or texts. If I want to ask him a quick thing or ask him to pick milk up on the way home I have to go through at least one other person and a lot of the time I’m just hanging on the line paying long distance because #1, he didn’t hear his page or #2, I got forgotten about. But God forbid he learn anything new.
If I want to have a conversation with someone about something, I’d rather do that by phone call. Or if I haven’t talked to someone in person for a while I like to call but texting is really handy when you don’t want to interrupt someone or just want to say one quick thing.
So how about you. What would you rather have? A text or a phone call?
