We've got a list from Gawker of the text messages you should never send . . . especially when you're behind the wheel . . . because they're just plain ANNOYING. Here are the top three . . .
#1.) Long Stories. If your text is longer than a few sentences, send an email or a Facebook message instead. Long text messages are annoying to read AND annoying to respond to.
--Plus, some people still get charged per text message. So if you write something long, they can easily get charged four or five times just for receiving it. That can add up to a dollar or more if they're over their limit.
#2.) That You're Bailing on Plans Last-Minute. People do this all the time: They decide they don't want to meet up, so they just text the other person with something like, "Sorry, turns out I can't make it."
--And that's fine if the other person is somewhere loud and can't talk. But at least give them a REASON you can't make it. Don't just say you're not coming.
--If they're NOT somewhere loud, then the decent thing to do is call them. Or just show up like you said you would.
#3.) A Text Message Just to Correct a Spelling Mistake. For example, say you spell the word "drink" with an "m" instead of an "n." They'll almost definitely know what you meant anyway, so there's no need to send a second text clarifying it.
--Only worry about it if your auto-correct is WAY off, and throws in a word that changes what you meant.
