Texting is new to me. My doctor’s office texted me today. I was so proud of myself when they confirmed back as I am not tech savvy.
For those of us caught in the technology flurry and don’t have a seven-year-old child or grandchild we are in trouble. At times, I find myself asking people on the street for assistance with the phone. I wonder if what they actually tell me is true but am at their mercy and do it anyway. Will there come a time when I will no longer be able to make a call or much worse pay a bill? I struggle with this.
Later in the day I see I have received another text. This is the first time I have received texts from two separate entities. I am excited texting back after I receive the “How are you?” inquiry. I proceed to say doing better I’m starting to blog. I hear a ping but see nothing but the entities phone number above my first text so I continue to text how I am and what I am now doing.
I have done 5 entries with no response; however, I continue to hear the ping. I know someone is on the other end but unsure why I cannot see what they have written. As I look at the top of the screen I realize I have been texting my doctor’s office. I can’t imagine the chatter that is occurring as they read my texts. See you at two.
