How to Destroy...
Wonder how a friend is doing with his divorce and send a caring text to him asking, "Are you still married?" Never do this. Bad idea. Especially if you are a woman and it is past 10pm.
Wonder how a friend is feeling about a certain romantical situation and write an accusatory text, "You aren't interested right?" Causes him a guilt trip because he is simply drowning with school and work and then you feel like an insensitive dummy.
Wonder if a friend is doing okay and send your text about them directly to them instead of to the person you meant to ask.
Respond to any texts during work hours - when your mind is in work mode, so are your fingers - and the result is cold, distant, to-the-point, possibly offensive texts to gentle souls. They get confused and ask if you are mad, not realizing work brain and out-of-work brain function differently.
I seriously think I should put myself on temporary texting restriction and try that whole "reach out and touch someone" method of actually talking or getting together. So, uh....Call me!
