Back when I first let Little Man use my iPad to send relatives text messages, I’m pretty sure everyone hated me. He had just started first grade at the time, and I thought it’d be a good way for him to practice writing/spelling and talk to some of our family about how school was going.
Little did I realize that LM was one of those people who have shit fits if someone doesn’t text them back immediately. You know the type — you don’t respond to a text within 5 minutes (and it’s a random text, not like you’ve been chatting), and they’re certain that you’re ignoring them and hate them or some shit.
Here is one of his early shit fit texts that I received one morning when I was out running errands. There’s lots of first grader spelling mistakes, but I’m pretty sure you can figure it out:
I was equal parts amused and horrified at the caps lock text rage coming from a little kid. He still sends lots of texts, but he usually doesn’t get quite as pissy as he did in his earlier texts when someone doesn’t respond fast enough.
