5 Simple Rules for Text Message Etiquette

  1. If it is going to involve more than three responses, just call the person. It's a phone, use it as such
  2. Texting is the only time you can use LOL, LMAO, TTYL, etc. all other times should be avoided, use your words. 
  3. Don't text and drive. Whatever it is, it can wait, really. 
  4. If a person doesn't respond right away don't freak out. Yes, this is a world of constant contact, but it is possible that the person is doing something and will reply later. Maybe they are on the phone, watching a movie, or taking a shit. 
  5. Jokes don't always come through, unless you end the sentence with "joking". If it can be misinterpreted it probably will be.
