5 Most irritating text messages!


Do you recall when there was a time when all relatives use to live together people use to wish each other in person, be it someones birthday or a festival or any occasion? 

When people moved to different places this culture changed to letter & when telephone was an affordable accessory at home, we use to call our relatives and friends at their neighbor house telephone even when they didn’t had phone at home?

Then came the pager & then cellphone era with 100 messages per day, we reserved 10 messages to most important person and used remaining messages to send forward messages or normal chat conversation.

And then came this age with WhatsApp! And thats it.

The already disconnected world further disconnected.

Messages changed from personally typing to forward messages only to image forwards to stickers.

Did you notice during the recent occasions like New Year or Pongal that even image forward message was not that trending but the WhatsApp stickers?

Let’s see what this communication evolution has for us in future,

Until then here is the most irritating text messages. 

1. K

Have you ever typed so many words in this small screen, correcting so many typos and looked up for special timing emojis for the text and curiously waited for other persons response and got a K as response?

I really wonder if they have a flight to catch or in so urge to run or fly to wash room or what else could be the super urgent matter that they couldn’t type anything from the alphabets but just K. Its the most easy work with just two letters, why the hell can people not type it fully if not a proper response to messages?


2. 🙂

There is another set of people that I’m not sure if they really understand how a smiley works or what it represents. Out of all smilies they pick the most irritating emoji, a slightly smile face emoji. How in the world do they go around and look for a half smile face when there is clearly a smiley that even makes you smile when you look at it? I assume people do really smile when they send a smiley.

3. 👍 

Yeah. I really feel like breaking that thumb when someone sends it to me as a reply. Just imagine talking to someone in person and as a reply they show you a thumbs up to your face. Come on, really… just imagine it. How did you feel? You being talking to someone in person, face to face and when you expect a reply they show you a thumbs up to your face. I’ll definitely try my best to break that thumb when it dances in front of my face!

Just type some god damn words, you idiots!

4. rofl

I have seen people replying to texts or commenting on posts with a grim face but as rofl, lmao or lol. Why?? if there was no short abbreviations, do you really think people will type laughing my ass off or roll on floor laugh? 

Emojis are meant to show our expressions in texts when you didn’t get a real laugh why fake it?

5. hmm, Tq, gtg, wc, thmh, refl,

This is like K but not ok! “Once upon a time, long long ago, so long ago” when there was number of messages per day limitations and number of characters in text limitations, people used short words for everything in the text and the msg wl b lk ts almst n al msgs. But why the hell now? Now you can even write a movie story or even a blog post in messages & these ancient messengers still didn’t adapt to new world. 

Have you felt any of these as irritating texts anytime? Or do you think there are other most commonly irritating texts other than this? Do let me know in comments.

5 Reasons why you should not use cellphone in restroom


Cellphones have become a third hand these days & it has become an inseparable gadget of ours. Everyone use cellphone throughout the day since the moment we’re awake and until we fall asleep. Many even fall asleep while using cellphones. If phones are not on silent/vibrate mode at night, notification sounds will even disturbs our sleep many a times.

How many times in a week does it happen to you?

This cellphone usage in recent times has gone one setup further in being engaged even in restrooms. You could have heard people talking, listening to music, watching videos even in restrooms especially even in public restrooms.

You may think and what’s the big deal in that right? yeah, right… that’s what we’re going to see in this post.

Do you use cellphone in restroom?

Here is the five reasons why you shouldn’t any longer! 

Effective Immediately!

1. Unaware of time consumption

When you’re in restroom at anytime of the day, either at home or at office or at public restroom; once you start using your cellphone you will never realize how long you’ve spent sitting there! Just compare the time you spend in restroom with cellphone and without cellphone. You can see at least a 15-20 minutes what so ever was your business there. You can save plenty of time if you stop carrying your third hand with you to restroom!

2. Save health

Since you won’t realize how long you’ve spent sitting there, You’re impacting the blood circulation to your legs and to your butt. Since you don’t move the legs or your body for a long time it’ll result in making your legs feel numb. 

Just get out soon and feel good!

3. Back pain 

Often you don’t realize that astute pain in your lower back after sitting for a long time, since the scroll will never get over on your facebook or twitter or instagram you will never realize that back pain until you try to sit straight which you will never do until you hold that cellphone which makes you bend towards it. 

4. Common enemy – Germs

Yes, you should be worried about germs at all places, especially restroom. If there is one proverb that should be modified for restroom then that must be

All that glitters are not clean!

You know very well restroom is the birth place for germs & unless hands are washed even our hands and legs are full of germs. When you use cellphone inside restroom and place it on the bathtub handle or on wash basin or anywhere inside restroom you’re loading your cellphone with germs which you’ll carry outside eventually to use even after washing hands. What’s the use? Your fingers will carry those germs everywhere until you sterilize our phone and hands again!

When was the last time you ever cleaned your phone?
Do you use cell phone in restroom? Then this is for you...
If you keep using it daily then this is how you may have to wipe the germs!

5. Save your cellphone 

Another reason why you should not carry your cellphone to restroom is saving it from falling on restroom floor or on the coast itself! Ever imagine how will you recover your phone if at all if it slides on to the coast? Eww… no way!!!

Never going to use cellphone in 24 hours so I’ve to use it in restroom!
Oopsie!!!

Bonus point!

Well there is an important and another reason why you shouldn’t carry cellphone to restroom, it’s simply because you should not! Just get on to the main business and do the smooth transaction and get out! Why do you want to sit there for long time!

If you still carry cellphone to restroom, you’re not in danger… You’re the danger!!!
