“You can’t break up via text”

August 25th, 2010 by Deb McLean

Casey wanted to “not go out” with a certain boy last year that she had been “going with” all year.  Seriously?  There’s no dating at 14 years old!  Middle school relationships as far as I’m concerned were based strictly on texting a few times a week.  Now…we’ll have to keep a tight leash because high school threatens to be different.  But, I digress; she wanted to “break up” with this boy so  I asked her what she was going to do and she said she’d just “text” him.  I told her no way!  That was cold.  She eventually did the right thing             


Unfortunately, much of our society communicates primarily through texting.  Maybe that’s why I find this commercial from Sprint so funny.  Not only does it get their selling points across, but it’s done with a great deal of humor.

  • Wow, hadnt seen that commercial yet but thats good…..and so true. That is the way a lot of people communicate – although some things are best said to someones face, even if they are hard to say! So true, Deb!!
