    You know we all do it (or Texting Under the Influence)

    I am dying laughing over this one, cause it is sooooo true! Friends don't let friends text message when they are drinking.

    The article is from The New York Post's Gossip section, aka Page Six.


    Quote Originally Posted by Page Six Article

    Joe Praino, a stand-up comedian and writer, admits he's a "huge" drunk texter - mostly to his ex-girlfriend.

    "I have amazing revelations," he says. He types them into his cellphone, and away they go. But while inebriated 3 a.m. calls used to end with a furious hang-up, Praino's scrambled musings are preserved for him (and his ex) to read and remember.

    Come morning, the 25-year-old Williamsburg resident realizes his message wasn't full of amazing revelations, after all.

    "Our biggest problem is we're afraid of being 'typical,'" was the result of one wild night spent with his cellphone.

    He laughs about it now: "I don't even know what that means."
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    NO GOATS!

    I have neved "texted" anyone from a cell-phone while drunk.

    I don't drink alcohol.

    I don't own a cell phone.


    Worst I've ever done is write important emails on too little sleep. For example, I wanted to tell one friend that I'm divorcing my wife. I opened an email from the friend, hit reply, wrote the message and then hit send....... Almost immediatly I received the email in my inbox...... "How the hexx?"

    Did I somehow "reply all" to an email I'd written to the friend???? Nope!!!!! The email from the friend had come to me via a Yahoo Group.... I responded to the WHOLE freakin' Yahoo group!!!! About 100 people that are regulars at several of the dance clubs we go to..... including my soon-to-be-ex....

    Good thing I took full responsibilty for the breakup and didn't say ANYTHING negative about her.... Well, I did say "I hope we can still be friends, but it seems like she can really hold a grudge."


    ANYWAY....... That kind of sucked.

    My cure for this pesky problem is simply to get too drunk to locate my cellphone. Nobody ever gets drunken messages from me.

    I HATE text messaging. I'd rather just call than waste my time trying to find the proper letter to insert to spell a word.

    And, I don't drink, so that goes without saying.

    As for friends texting me when drunk - please don't. Your drunk ramblings are not worth the dime it costs me.

    Hey I resemble that remark~!

    I have NO IDEA what prompted you to post that particular story!!!
    (are you hearing the music for You Give Love a Bad Name right now?)

    I admit to sending drunken tm's, yes I do. ALthough, I do have a specific group of people that get my drunken pm's(for the most part)and I stick to that list.

    I've also received a TON of drunken tm's, things like screaming from a Duran Duran concert and messages from a large group of friends saying things like "we're at Uva where are youuuuuuuu" Wonder who that could be

    I've never drunken text messaged, however, a good friend of mine does it every weekend. It's freakin' hilarious to be on the receiving end sometimes... the stuff that comes out of her fingers... you just have to laugh hysterically. I keep copies and then let her read them the next day :devil:

    I haven't ever done it, but I have been around people that were in the act of doing it. I remember hearing him say "I'm drunk so it must be time to send her one of those text messages."

    I delete them after I show them to her. However, knowing her, I'll probably get some this weekend... I'll post them then!

    I believe the last one had something to do with flying monkeys shouldn't be blue. I told you they were wacked! And of course, they're filled with tons of hilarious spelling mistakes...
