Texting RULES!
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     
Text messaging is a great way to keep in touch.
Some people claim we do it way too much.
But when you're in your room at home or in a private place
Texting can be lots of fun when you can't talk face to face.

 
2     Although texting is simple, there are still some rules that everyone should follow. They are texting etiquette rules.

ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申* No one should be text messaging while they're driving a car. That's taking your communication needs just a bit too far.

ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申* Always put your phone on vibrate when you're in a public place. No one wants to hear that beeping when you are in his or her space.

ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申* Do not text while you are on the job or in a class. You must pay close attention if you intend to pass.

ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申* Never text a friend while in conversation with another friend. It's downright rude, and it could bring your friendship to an end.

ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申* Text messages also shouldn't be crass or rude or mean, and to stay out of trouble, always keep your language clean.

ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申* Don't text when you are angry; you may say things you will regret. Give it a little time. You may forgive and then forget.

ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申* Don't give bad news in a message. You need to do this face to face. If you can't be there in person, use the phone in any case.

ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申ï申* Texting can be fun. It can also be misunderstood. Keep your texting short and keep your intentions good.
