Short message service - please take note

Yes, the progress paradox continues to haunt each and every one of us. The cellphone is the master, and we are all a bunch of dumb Venter trailers.

You know, it is called the short message service for a reason. So, what is with these 30 line SMS's that people send out ... WTF !?

Do I now have to sit and reply to this long short message. Guys, come on!!! And actually, worse than the long SMS is the short one that goes, "Long time no speak - what's happening on your side?" Or, the one that goes, "How are you doing these days?" Which, if to be taken seriously, requires a long reply. Has the world completely lost the plot ?!

It is like those sincere emails, that you get on the BCC - seriously, come on!! You knows those ones, that go from Joe, To Joe, with some heart-felt message how a few close friends are getting together blah , blah , blah ... if they are such close friends then why not a personal invite ?

Yeah, the short message service ... if it is meant to be so short, then surely we can actually do without it!

A short VLOG with a very short message.
