Do you text when you drive? The answer is probably yes.
If I answered this over 3 weeks ago I would have said yes too.
I have such an obsession with texting, that I had to add GChat to my Blackberry so that I didnt miss out on any text opportunities.
Even worse, here is an example of what a bad texter I am. One day I was driving down the highway and I apparently passed my husband, driving a tractor down the road... and I NEVER EVEN SAW HIM! We dont live out in the boonies people, this was on a 4 lane highway.
HOW DO YOU NOT NOTICE THE BIG GREEN TRACTOR GOING 5 MILES AN HOUR ON THE HIGHWAY!?
Hello, My name is Candace... and I have a texting problem.
As soon as I started driving with Keating in the car, I made a decision to stop texting while driving. But, it is a decision that I should have made a long time ago. (OBVIOUSLY) I then heard my local news station and even Oprah making pacts to "Hang Up and Drive."
I find myself sometimes driving and getting the urge to send a Blackberry message, or to see who is signed in to GChat... but I fight the temptation. If you have a blackberry, then you know how awful it is to see that little red flashing message light and not being able to check it! Its pure torture!
I now only check my phone at redlights, and as soon as its green, my phone goes back into the cup holder.
I'm sure at some point I will forget and find myself typing while driving. Its really hard, but totally worth it to make the road a safer place.
Have YOU made the pact??
