    Yeah. He told me a couple weeks ago he was going to call me, I said anytime on the cell. I had a feeling this was the question.
    Since we were being formal and all:

    Jason says:
    Sure thing buddy.

    texting back and fourth takes forever.

    a 30 second call is so much more efficient.

    Why though?

    I can understand sending like, 1 or 2 texts. But to text back and forth like 10 messages? Just call!

    Its gonna get to the point where everyone is just gonna sit in their house and never make human contact, then complain their social life sucks.

    I'll carry on a few conversations at a time through text. It's just easier, I can respond when I want to. If I'm working, I'm not able to talk on the phone, I'll just shoot off a text when I get a chance.

    I think the general etiquette is "if it requires a response, place a call."

    I text a lot because I'm not in a position to call.

    Most grown ups don't have all the time I the world to carry on phone conversations for pleasure.

    God damn you're one track minded. :lol:

    Ill text at work if someone needs to ask a question, or if i gotta ask someone a question and i know theyre at work. But if it just keeps carrying on and on, i stored the quick text in my phone saying "If its important, call, if not, fuck off"

    If I do random stupid chatting I will text, if its important I will call.

    Also when its long distance I will text unless its important to call, I did a lot of texting back to NS this weekend.

    I'm not a big talking on the phone person, so I prefer texting.

    That is unless I have something long to say, then I'll call. Most likely I'd be too lazy to type it all out.
