Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton Text During Fashion Show

Are You Text-Obsessed?

We all know how I feel about texting during dinner, a movie, or a heartfelt convo, but how acceptable is texting during a (very) public event?

Although this pic of Paris and Nicky Hilton at Fashion Week makes me want to sit them down and give them a lecture in appropriate text behavior, I'm trying to be understanding. Like I've said before, I get the addiction, I just don't get the text dependence. Seriously, if I had a front row seat to check out Pamella Roland's beautiful collection, there wouldn't be a single thing that could tear my eyes from the runway. Except for maybe Nigel Barker there on the left . . .

I have one friend and all we ever do is text to communicate with each other. I spell everything out though when I do it, I've just learned how to type as fast as possible, I can't, CANNOT do the whole word shortening thing.

I'm not obsessed & I don't get it either. During a fashion show, date, even dinner with friends. One text is fine, saying, "I can't talk right this sec." But more than that, I think it's rude! I went out on a first date with a guy. He texted a 2, 3 times through dinner. Then picked his phone up as soon as it vibrated again! I never went out with him again. It shows no consideration, in my opinion.

texting doesn't bother me to the point of annoyance. for the most part, the only time it bugs the crap out of me is when i'm having a conversation with someone and they keep looking at their phone. ugh!

Texting at the show is TOTALLY rude. Were I the model, and I noticed, I'd be pissed, and show it. Save it for between shows, or don't take the front row, brats. A girl in my area actually got arrested for refusing to stop texting in a HS class. It's gotten BAD.

I often prefer to text because sometimes being on the phone just drains me...although I'm not texting CONSTANTLY....

I hate to text but I always find myself doing it. But I always turn off my phone for dinner, movies, etc.

Here is my deal with it, I can not stand when people do it at movies, concerts, places they pay to be at. And then people like Nikki and Paris who get invited to such amazing shows at Fashion week would rather spend time texting people they can talk to after or even probably during. JEEZ people are so selfish!

I'm not really "obsessed" but I do text alot. With teenagers it's the easiest way to communicate with them. If they're out, I can send a quick "You're going to be late" message that i know they'll see. If I call, they can just ignore me, but I know that THEIR obsession will make them look at the text. LOL

I think at loud events, like sports games, then texting is ok. If you were trying to find someone in the crowd, then you wouldn't be able to hear them if you called them. If it's more of a special event, then texting should be avoided.

I still believe it should be at appropriate places..maybe they were taking pictures and uploading to some website right away :-)

I text a whole lot, but only in appropriate situations. If I had front row seats anywhere during Fashion Week, I would do nothing but drool over a collection I could never own, and sit in amazement. Yet, Paris and Nicky get to do these things all the time, and I guess for us more "common" folk, we would act a lot differently. I don't text at dinner, and I don't text while driving, although I do talk, but to me it's different, I would never text at church. But, almost all else is fair game. ;)

I never texted a lot, but had a few habitual texter friends. Best way to rid yourself of it, get rid of the text plan and know that you pay 10 cents (or whatever it is) for every text sent and received. Habit over. :)
