Maybe 10 years from now, no one will talk to each other on the phone. Talking on the phone is bad for you. We're less intelligent when we're forced to think while we speak, and we listen worst when we can tune out the speaker and surf the web with near impunity.So yeah, texting your mom makes you a better person than calling her.
But that doesn't mean everyone who texts is as smart as the idea of texting is itself--a douchebag will always be a douchebag. When time traveling gets invented, there'll be people who only want to go Woodstock '99 and the Roman Empire. Those are the same guys who suck at texting, and they're just plain obnoxious when it comes to flirting with women. There's all types of obnoxious texters. Don't be these guys.
