Texter's Remorse

We've all heard of "Buyer's Remorse" right? How about, "Don't Drink and Drive" or "Don't Drink and Text", and lets not forget, "Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk"? Yes well, I've got a new one! "Texter's Remorse." And I've got it, and it's not good! For the most part, texting is a convenience, a "hurry up" tool to communicate when you're pressed for time or you just don't want to talk to that person. Also known as the "easy way out." Last week I text messaged someone that I shouldn't have. No sooner had I pressed "Send" than the ol' dreaded "Texter's Remorse" kicked in! Why? Why did I do it??? Ugh! And it's not like you can hit cancel -well you can but you have to do it before you hit send and not after. And no, I was not intoxicated, though even if I was, it still would have been a mistake!

Silence is sometimes piercingly more painful than spoken words. No, nothing happened as a result of my text happy fingers! I was just pissed at myself for doing it. I didn't hear back from the person I text messaged. I didn't expect to, but deep inside, I hoped.

In our modern hi-tech world it is very easy to ring bells that can't be unrung. It's always best to pause for a few seconds and think of the potential impact of your words before you press the button and launch the missiles.

Israel -I'll check it out later this evening.

Shady - In a perfect world, I would pause, but in my crazy world, my impulsiveness takes over and I just react! lol

Cinderita - Don't you hate it??? lol

After I blogged about my mom and shopping, I realized (much later) she would be reading it. Holy cow! Luckily she has a sense of humor and wasn't upset when I told her about it.

Hey Belle, let's hope your mom doesn't follow you over here and read some of your true confessions. Know what I mean, Vern?

Oh, I doubt she'd be surprised at what I said. We joke about everything, even sex.
