Do you take offense when someone doesn't text you back within a few minutes?

I don't text anymore. Very damaging to my social life in the long run so I've given it up.

I don't but I have friends that do and it's annoying. It's like dude, I'm driving, I'm at work, I'm at the gym... Chill

It's a text. If its that important, make a phone call.

Depends on what we're talking about.

08/26/12 8:13 am

boyfriend doesnt text much so

08/25/12 10:27 pm

Really? No, it's just texting. Like others have surely mentioned, if it's important call the person.

Maybe I would if we were having a conversation, but if I had just sent them a text I would think they were napping or something.

they get mad when i take ten years,but when THEY take ten years its like calm down
it makes me think they are thinking about the topic we r texting about but then i realize they dont give a ****

I dont text for this and many other reasons.

It's common etiquette

If I wanted a quick answer than I would just call.

No, I'm very lazy when it comes to texting, so I don't care if someone else is too

08/23/12 4:52 pm

It would be very hypocritical of me to do that.

08/23/12 3:20 pm

Depends on the circumstance but usually no.

08/23/12 11:35 am

They're busy..but if they don't at all I get mad..I depend on someone for transportation, and if I don't hear back from them, I start going nuts..

Within a few minutes: no
When they don't text back at all: Heck yeah!

Sometimes I guess if I know my husband is within range and has his phone with him and I need something I might get pissey. Otherwise I'm a call screener and bad at returning texts myself.

08/23/12 8:18 am

When it's a really important message im waiting to receive then i get pretty annoyed but not offended.

Offended: No.
Impatient: Totally!

People should understand that the people they are texting might be busy... If it is really important just call... And if you can't, then you have decent grounds for this argument

And wth dies your last sentence say? It makes absolutely no sense.

2katz, I only text people when absolutely necessary. I don't waste people's time with texts like "wyd" or "lol" or "k". If someone sends you an actual IMPORTANT text message, then you should answer it. I guess people like you think posting a pic of a sleeping cat on Facebook is a bigger priority.

08/23/12 5:46 am

No. It takes me days to respond to people sometimes (unless it's important).

08/23/12 4:46 am

Within a few minutes, no. Depending on the subject matter, I do start to get irritated when the minutes become days.

if you answered yes, i'm glad i'm not your girlfriend.

No. Why would you? People have lives outside of you. I would only be offended if someone sent me an offensive message

08/23/12 2:48 am

Many cell phones now have a feature that allow you to actually talk to someone and hear their voice when communication speed is critical.

08/23/12 1:07 am

Jeez if you say yes to this question, take a chill pill and realize that people have lives outside of you.

I also hate Mott Romney

Only if I have been texting in a complete conversation and they randomly disappear.

08/22/12 11:25 pm

Irritated is a better word for me, esp. with my children. I only txt them when i cant call & i know they can respond but they act like the world is ending and I ignored their cries for help if I don't answer their txt right away.

No. I expect that the people I communicate with have a job, and/or a significant other, and/or children, and/or a social life.

Heaven help us. I hate cell phones. I don't call or text. I find it intrusive. I prefer email. Or Facebook even. No expectation to reply über fast.

I just wonder if the got it is all. Never offended, that is unless they answer back with. !@/'!&/" or something, then maybe. :)

08/22/12 10:49 pm

If its in the middle of a conversation, then yes. However I understand people are busy and can't always get back right away.

08/22/12 10:42 pm

The previous q about ADHD answers this . 14% carried over.

08/22/12 10:39 pm

Nope. It's called they are busy lol

08/22/12 10:37 pm

If I need an answer right away I'll call.

Well, I'll admit that I am impatient and needy, but I wouldn't say I get offended. I get impatient, is all. But at the same time, I recognize that people have lives. So... No.

I've never texted before, so I gotta say no

08/22/12 9:18 pm

Could one of the 15% that said yes please explain why? I promise I won't try to argue with you, just curious about the other side......
