    I hate passwords…I can never remember them…They’re a big pain in the * ____________ (Required field)…

    Just out of curiosity, who do you think texts more, women or men? Jus’ Axin’

    @ varnes
    women, the ones that don’t have a paying job, especially when they’re driving, often with kids in the back.

    Oh, man, I just got it! Janis is answering Arlo’s question with the old single digit salute. Sheesh, I’m kinda slow this morning!

    unfortunately, I find this to be all to true. Them and the teenage girls that have NO brains and are texting and driving beyond the speed limit.

    ..with kids in front, unleashed, or on mommy’s knees, or standing in the back, between the front seats. All witnessed by yours truly…

    Okay . . . well Johnson has done it to me again . . . I asked the wife if she understood today’s strip . . . she said that she wasn’t sure, so I explained it to her . . . she gave me the finger and left for Pilates.

    Just make your password whatever word would fill in the blank and, boom, instant mnemonic.

    Actually, texting is more of an age issue than a gender issue. The younger generation is far more comfortable to texting than I am. I prefer to have a more human conversation that includes nuances of voice and body language. Texting is too antiseptic in that it only has one small part of comunication.

    Om the gender issue, from what I have obseved, women seem to be more likely to be texting and are more proficient at it. However, I have used texting far more than my wife who is 16 years younger than I.
    As far as I know my wife has sent zero texts in the last year as opposed to my almost a dozen.

    I’d say women too. My son told me that his wife texts so much she’s like a teenage girl :-) Of course lucky for him, she wasn’t present at the time, and his secret is safe with me.

    An anecdote does not proof make, but Saturday when I was driving home from the gym, a man prob. in his 20’s was standing in the street with his back to the traffic, about a foot away from the curb, texting. Since I didn’t want to knock him to Glory and there was traffic in the lane next to mine, I had to cree-eep by him slowly and almost stop. He finally looked up at me and I gave him the most industrial-strength fish eye I could manage through wraparound sunglasses. As I drove away, I could see him still standing in the street for awhile longer, then slowly ambling onto the grass. Women may well text more, but men do it more spectacularly.
