Text messages can go wrong.

My granddaughter CArolina is always having problems with her cellphone. She has a plan and her father pays for it, but when she has used up all her minutes the cellphone can only recieve calls. Her last resourse is to borrow phones. And although I don´t agree, I´m a grandma and end up handing her my phone. The girl uses it in a way that I would never do it. She calls friends to say nothing to them in many words. But one tieme she could not talk to her boyfriend so she sent a syrupy text message to him. No sooner had she sent it than the boy thought it was a prank from someone and deleted it without further notice. Afterwards, Carolina learned that as Enzo did not know my phone´s number, he could not know the message was for him. I had to laugh. And ready to teach her something on the side, I told her to use her phone minutes in a better way. The love message went forever to the virtual space

That's funny. There was a sequence on Ellen's TV show for a while where she would read text messages where some of the words were misused. I guess the word checker would put the word in that it thought the person meant and it wasn't. Some of them were pretty funny and embarrassing.

Computers have devices to edit our texts, but we are too lazy to use them. Sometimes I edit my texts here when I´m commenting on the answers.

That could have ended very differently if he's sent you back a love note.

It would be really troubling days for her I am assuming that.

I think that we have to take care of our finances, including our cell phone bills. That taught her a lesson.
