- Has Verizon
Yesterday I dialed #DATA to find out where I stood with my texting numbers for the month so far and was a little shocked by how many I had sent and received. Ummmmm, I'm not going to tell you the numbers, but if you think you have me beat, please leave a comment with your own numbers and we'll see.
I also am not going to tell you which texting plan I have because it's slightly insane (yet also not big enough). Serena used to be my biggest non-Verizon texter, but since the death of her second sidekick, she has gotten a pre-paid Verizon phone which has greatly helped my own bill. So now my top texters are all on Verizon and I am getting greedy. I want everyone I know to get Verizon so we can all enjoy free texting!
But before I can even begin that mission, I need to get all of my friends texting on a regular basis. Right now there are three camps of people:
- Texters: Serena, Allie, Ali, Vanessa, Katie*, etc.
- Semi-Texters: Brendan*, Vanessa C.*, Andre, Ray, Christopher, Senor, Kristin*, Amira, etc.
- Non-Texters/"Texting?"/"Texting is stupid": Steven*, etc.
Semi-texters can frustrate me at times. Usually I know that if I text them they get it, but I never hold my breath for a speedy response or, in some cases, a response at all. If I really needed to get in touch with one of them, I would just call. I usually assume Semi-texters do not have a texting plan and therefore do not want to text when not necessary. Or maybe they just have lives and don't want to spend their time typing out funny messages to me. (Nah!)
Non-texters get annoyed when people text them because it costs them money. They are more likely to answer their phone, though, when I call and while I appreciate this, sometimes the convenience of a text would be awesome. And Steven's not the only non-texter, but he's the only one I know for sure gets annoyed when texted so I have never even attempted one to him. Not even when drunk.
So I need you all to get on the Verizon board so I can just spend my days texting everyone. If you want to be friends, you're going to need to make the switch. And if you're already with Verizon, email me for my number;)
*Make the switch!! Get Verizon!
