Text Messaging = LIFE

Reach into your pocket. I am willing to bet all the money in mine that you have a cell phone in there. I am willing to put even more money on the line to bet that you have an unread text message waiting for a reply. It seems like here on campus and everywhere else in the world, people are constantly texting. People text more than they live!

On the PSU campus, I can recall times where someone was so into their “text”-versation that they bumped into me. Just the other night I found myself texting in between bites at the dinner table. Class getting kind of boring? How many times have you seen a classroom full of students texting during a lecture? I have to say this is the most outrageous one that even I am guilty of: having a conversation on the phone and texting at the same time, or as I like to call it, texting while talking……LOL.

It amazes me how popular text messaging has become. Even my beautiful grandmother is on the text messaging scene. But hey, as long as you are not texting while driving feel free to give your thumbs a workout ladies and gentlemen. People text more than they live, but texting that results in taking a life is not cool at all. Come on PSU, I know I left something out, what are some other bizarre text message scenarios you have seen around campus?
