This popped in my head the other day on the way to work. I see sooo many people texting lately, and quite a few of my friends text me instead of calling. I have some friends I hear from via email or facebook instead of phone or text. I have some friends I talk to the phone only.
Not being specific to keeping in touch with friends… I’m referring to everyone: Which mode of communication do you prefer: Phone, Text or E-Mail?
Me, I mostly prefer phone or email. Texting takes me way too long as I don’t have a fancy keyboard phone. And I think… gosh, by the time I type out all that and wait to get a response and then type back, I could have called and gotten a whole conversation over with in the time it took to answer two questions. And then typically I end up pressing a wrong button and deleting my entire one sentence message that took me 5 minutes to type. But, that’s just me.
For business I often prefer email as I work from home and usually don’t have peace and quiet until later in the evening. I always cringe when a client calls and I stupidly answer when I know I won’t have 5 minutes to quietly talk with them.
Some friends (and most of my family members) I use the phone… I have a few friends I talk to daily, or weekly, and my mom, grandma and sister I chat with on the phone.
I guess if I had to choose, I’d probably say phone…. I love my cell phone and I feel so lost if I don’t have it. Second would be email, third texting.
So…what is your preference?
