“Hi” and “Sup”
Sure, texting is a great way to just drop a quick note to someone or let him or her know you’re thinking about him or her. But, don’t forget, the entire alphabet is on that teeny tiny keyboard. So there’s no excuse for that person who just texts you “Hi” or “Sup,” never facilitating a real conversation. Typically, when this is happening, it’s because the person only wants to casually hook up with you, or wants to put in no effort whatsoever. Think about it: “Sup” is the absolute minimum effort they have to put in to potentially engage you. From there, if you’re dumb enough, you’ll say, “Hi! Not much! How are you?” and then they can say, “Good. U?” (Oh and another thing, don’t trust someone who abbreviates absolutely everything. That’s another person who doesn’t want to put in effort). Just because someone texts you “Hi” does not mean they deserve your time of day. That person is abusing the brevity of technology.
