Really? Do I really need to get spam mail on my phone? Sure, I'm going to get a $1500 loan from a place that sent me a unsolicited text message on my phone.

At least it'* not people who mistook your number for someone else'*, and sent you a barrage of texts asking you why you're such a blank blank blank and broke their best friend'* heart and how their boyfriend is gonna beat you up next time he sees you at (insert name of bar in another state entirely)?

Which would be less bad if it hadn't happened THREE TIMES. Apparently my number is really close to someone who'* a massive jerk.

But yeah, who'd take out a loan from someone who uses text spam to advertise? Durr.

Back when I had a cell before OnStar, ATT spammed me and as I checked, charged me for the privilege. Texting went off. Which is a good thing. People text you all day because they say, "It'* not like I'm bothering you with a call." then continue to text till you answer them. Vicious circle of bother. People who text need lives. Real lives that make them to busy to whack little keys all day........I dont text in my car, I dont text on my boat, I dont text on my Bike, I dont text in the woods crashing 100-200 foot trees to the ground. I spend a great deal of money buying toys and upkeep because I want to ignore a petty world filled with senseless distractions...... End of Rant.

BTW, I hate texting.
