How do you get anything done sending 100 texts a day!!!!!

Says someone who doesn't text.

I laughed out loud at that. I do that with the person I'm dating. I send probably twenty+ to my eldest daughter throughout the day regarding school and shooting her some hot memes.

With a couple of friends we share all kinds of stuff throughout the day that easily reaches a hundred.

And I still put in a 12 hour workday plus time for other stuff. Not every minute of the day has something happening, which makes for a good moment to touch base with those you love.

But the incredulity from the Republican rep over the number of texts made me laugh.

Hell, one girl I dated a few years ago we sent probably several hundred texts a day. And none of those would have been read aloud in congress!

1. I easily text that many times or more.

It takes less time than a conversation and I can keep many balls in the air at one time. Id way rather text than have that many conversations. That would be exhausting. I have to talk to enough people as it is.

3. I like it because I have a written record.

I can go back and ck to be sure I have stuff right.

And it is so much faster than phone calls.

4. I do that too. I make most of my dates by text.

Then I can easily check.

2. ugh

I would hate being interrupted that many times. And I do believe it has a negative effect on one's work.

7. I can understand that, but for those that have grown into it as a part of their workflow

it's not an interruption. It's simply "another window" that's open where you interact with people.

8. I get interrupted by Skype and email all day long for my job.

I glance at my personal phone, but its really a distraction.
