21. How texting works
Texting works in mysterious ways, if you ask your parents. We all know this person who signs his name at the end of a text message, even if he’s family, a friend and even if you’ve texted before – some people don’t get how it works and feel the need to express formality in text messages.
It’s probably because the only form of texting our parents have known for the majority of their lives is emailing, where it’s accepted, not to say required, to sign your name at the end of the message. Before email was regular mail, where you’re also require to sign your name, and before that were letters, hand-written, where you signed your name. Old habits die hard, as this text message shows.
