As a genuine certified Old, I’ve lived the vast majority of my life without the ability to text, and instead have had to use my own voice to talk to other people over the phone. Here’s a secret: I hate talking on the goddamn phone.
Part of that has to do with having a day job that requires me to be on the phone for the majority of the day, but I much prefer texting to talking because I can make the choices of what I’m going to say and when, on my own time. The phone is a lot of pressure, people. And now that I have my parents texting, too, I may never have to have another off-the-clock phone conversation again.
Are you a talker or a texter?
