  • It is not appropriate, while you are talking to someone else, while driving. Or to someone who loves you.

  • I would rather text then talk on the phone but I would never text a boss or my parents but my husband and I text each other all the time and we prefer to text his ex wife in case it gets ugly we have proof.

  • Pretty much the ONLY time I don't text is while driving and that's about it.

  • It's appropriate to text when you are alone. Not while driving. It's good when you need to quickly talk to someone who is working and only has a second. My husband can only answer a text or page while working in the hospital.

  • It's appropriate when you are NOT driving, while in school, when giving birth or visiting someone in the hospital. Ahh..that's all I got.

    What's with the response about someone who loves you? Odd.
