Because I am jumping up on my soapbox here!
It's called etiquette, rules of society, things your momma taught you! Call it what you want!
It's 2011, and many many many people do not have landlines in their homes anymore. Instead they
have cell phones. I'm one of those people, makes sense to us. Why pay for something you don't need. Or why pay for something twice.
Think back to when everyone had a land line. If you moved into your home and called to have your land line hooked up, where is one of the places you would have a phone installed? Your bedroom, right? In case there was an emergency and someone needed to call in the night.
Well, I for one, not having a land line, take my phone and put it by my bed each night... as does David. We have kids and parents, and you just never know. My phone is not left in my purse or in the kitchen, or anywhere else in my house. It is by my bed each and every single night.
Don't you think if it is too LATE or too EARLY to call someone on the telephone because it is not an emergency then they same rule should apply to TEXT MESSAGING! I mean really, it's the same thing as calling. If it wakes me from a dead sleep then you can bet it has scared me, not to mention irritated the heck out of David... and that is putting it nicely!
Honestly, am I the only one who thinks this way? Does no one else believe there should be rules and consideration? I mean just because you are up at 6am doesn't mean I am, and you wouldn't be calling me on the phone at 6am to tell me a joke you just heard.
Oh, and Bug, because I know you read this, I'm not talking about messages that I got a few weeks ago in the middle of the night from Mr. Greene. He was very worried and very scared.
Alrighty, think I'm done now. Climbing down off the soapbox!
