Seriously, it depends upon what I'm doing! I love a phone call but, if I'm on the phone or doing something that I hate to stop working on, I love a text then too! Either way is absolutely fine with me!

It depends. A quick text is great if it's quick and simple. What I cannnot stand are people that want to have a long conversation via text as if I have time to sit and type a long message, wait a minute or two for their next message, then type another response, then wait a minute or two for their next message...

If you want to talk, call me!

I'm leaning more towards texting in my advanced years! Of course I loathe to text as I find it tedious and demanding. But it is THE way for me to get a message quickly to a client. I always have to make sure how THEY communicate. I have some aging boomers who don't even do email! Gasp!
