When you get a text, do you reply quickly? Or do you tend to just do it whenever you want, at your own leisure?
btw patchisou yutohru you don't need to post in this thread because i'll just say here that you don't reply quickly at all

It really depends on who I'm texting and what the actual text is about. I usually answer quickly, but sometimes I'll forget if I'm busy. In all honesty, though, it really depends on what the text is about. Some require more thought than others, lol.

If I manage to pay attention long enough, I'll usually reply somewhat quickly, or at most just enough time for me to come up with something to write about.

    I went a couple of years without a phone, so I'm still trying to pick up on this whole "phone etiquette" thing. I should answer all texts I get ASAP, but there are times when I'll wait a few hours hoping that the person who texted me doesn't want to have a full conversation. I dunno, I'm generally bad at phone etiquette as a whole.

      My reply time difference is pretty dramatic, unfortunately D:

      Sometimes I can reply within a couple seconds and sometimes it can take like... a couple days.

          Depends on what I'm doing.. like if I'm at work, I'll obviously wait for breaks and whatnot. Usually I reply soonafter I see the message unless, like I said, I'm preoccupied (or don't have reception.)

            I might take ages to reply, because I often don't know what to say/need to think about it (usually when people ask me to go somewhere). Sometimes I even take a few days to reply. For some reason I never feel like replying instantly...

            Considering this thread deals primarily with phones and texting, which is a tech topic, I'm moving this to Technology and The Internet.

            -moved.

            To answer the question, though, immediately. Unless I'm distracted or running errands or something.

            I'll respond as soon as I see the text message, but if I'm in the middle of something I tend to do it after.

            If I can I try to respond instantly, it feels weird if I reply to a text that was sent hours ago. If I've left my phone somewhere or I honestly don't have time to reply instantly I'll do it asap and usually send an apology with it too because I'm such a nice guy and all that.

                I always reply to a text as soon as possible. I'm kind of OCD about it. xD

                ...
                I usually don't text, honestly. On the rare occasion that someone does text me, I usually reply right away, unless I'm busy.

                    Lol

                    It depends on the content of the text, if I need to think about it, I wait a while, but if it's just random conversation I reply as fast as my fingers can type.
