Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

yes, you can divide 350 by two to get the number received and the number sent.

I don't know anyone with a non- outdated phone under the age of 40 who doesn't. 100 messages sent and 100 received per week is completely standard and likely way way below the average for people in this thread.

Actually talking on the phone sucks and most normal people communicate via some type of text/messenger app.
Also agree with the sentiment regarding sound notification in general. I have mine on vibrate 100% of the time.


Which reminds me...
Phone conversations piss me off.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

I get +100 work related texts every week.

Getting +100 is completely standard for anyone with friends/coworkers/a life.

You and froegg should become friends so you can text each other and get that number up to a respectable level

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

47-year-old here. I've texted 22 people in the last week. Probably 200 texts or more if I count them up. I also text from my computer at home and at work - so it's like another chat client for me sometimes.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

There are 3 adults and 1 teenager on my plan and we average about 1500 texts a week that aren't iPhone to iPhone. I'd imagine the total is twice that if you count the iMessages.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

Some of you are talking about actual texts as in SMS. It really pisses me off if you send 100+ of those texts. I was mostly talking about whatsapp kind of app services myself.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

Regarding the bidet - I tried one of those when I visited my buddy in Japan. It was so relaxing I fell asleep on it after a night of drinking.

However is it really 100% effective replacement for wiping? Sometimes my dump comes out about the consistency of let's say - Nutella. When that happens, wiping is a long, laborious process. It's hard for me to imagine that a little squirt jet is going to dislodge all of that.

The responses make it 350.

Edit: Yes, I know responses were made, however I wanted to respond before reading them.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

I haven't looked at my bill in a long time, but I'd wager I do over 1,000 texts per week. Essentially have running convos with a few people, and when I'm really high I fire off texts to a bunch of folks seeing who will engage me.

I can't vote, because my server is too slow and the pics take too long.

Of course, I don't think I would be allowed to vote for Jennifer Lawrence anyway.

It all started with a complaint about the notification sound for text messages which only applies to sent messages. That's why I only considered those.

Beats earphones? What, were they out of tin cups with string?
