Is There a Right and Wrong Time For Texting?

Text messaging has become as much a form of communication as an old-fashioned phone call. What's different about texting, though, is that it's a (mostly) silent activity that can conceivably be done on the sly.

I've talked about texting while driving, texting and dating, and texting while dining.

The subject is all over the news, too: The New York Times just reported that there's a ban on federal workers texting while driving, and the Today show recently ran a segment about parents who set texting rules — specially during meals, vacations, parties, and other family time. I personally cannot stand talking with someone who's texting at the same time.

Texting at the wrong time can be rude, distracting, and in the case of driving, downright dangerous. Are there other texting situations that drive you crazy?

Texting while in the movie theater. I know you're not talking, but the bright light from your phone is still distracting.
