It’s wonderful you could stay out late last night because you didn’t have to get up early to go to work this morning. However, I did have to get up early. Being awakened by your text in the middle of the night to ask, “watcha doin?”, did not sit well with me. At 3:00am, I was enjoying precious sleep.
Yes, I could have turned my cell phone off. However, I pay for cell phone service so I can be notified in the event of an emergency. I should not have to turn my cell phone off so I am not bothered by trivial, inappropriately timed texts. We are not in a habit of turning our land lines off at night. Why should we have to turn our cell phones off?
The next time you send a text, consider the time. If your recipient could be sleeping, hold on to that information until the next day.
