Good Call! I use texting to take care of "business" type stuff when my husband's out of town... letting him know that his credit card bill came or that I booked a carpet cleaner. But real conversations need to be conversations.

I got dumped on IRC once. That was so lame! However, as cold as it is to break up with someone electronically, if you think about it, it makes it a little easier to deal with, in that you can tell yourself that the person is obviously a heartless twat and that you're clearly better off without someone so crass and insensitive I don't make it a habit to turn exes into enemies, unless they blindside me with a cruel break-up.

I am recently guilty of the email breakup, but he had a temper and I felt it was way safer. I usually man up and do it in person even though I end up in tears.

But the "z" just looks so much CUTER...

My pet peeves - mostly relating to grammar & spelling.

Other than that - not a lot of them - I'm typically a go with the flow type person... at least I think I am

I was fired via email once. I laughed about it for days... :P

Not replying to emails - even to say "I'm busy but will get back to you"

People who go on diet after diet instead of changing their diet.

I solved the not rolling the toothpaste tube up PDQ. I went to the dollar store and bought a couple of those things you put on the tube & just push it up as the tube gets emptier. No excuses this way, lol.

Trying to chat via IM and NOT getting some undivided attention or even an answer in a timely manner. Them not bothering to let you know they're not going to be at the computer or are signing out......

Dating someone with ADD can suck, lol, when you are the type who likes to sometimes have things planned ahead of time OR being asked to go to a movie & having to remind him to check with his other partners AND arrange a babysitter! *sigh*
