I found myself when writing essays writing how text. I use a lot of shortcuts when writing; Instead of me writing the word” you” I would write “u”. This affects the way I write tremendously at times. It’s the new technology that’s doing this. My mother has witnessed more than one group of e-mailers go spiraling down into a full blown argument fueled by their thumbs of quickly expressed words of stupidity, when a simple phone call or physical meeting would have resulted in a much more civilized result. People have taken a lot of shortcuts in life through texting. Some can’t live without it.

For example, a personal gripe of mine has to do with people texting while I am trying to tell them something, causing them to look up and say, “wait, huh? “, and it is all too common. What happens when the ability to drive is hindered?
