    I get annoyed when people text me and it's not the person I hoped it was. Like, I blame them for not being the person I want it to be. It's quite mean really! Can't help who you want to hear from though.
    Haha this! I get all excited expecting it to be the person I want it to be (makes it worse that the person I want it to be and the person it usually is have the same first initial - gets my hopes up further for a second when I look who it's from) then the subsequent conversation with the person it actually is tends to be a bit unenthusiastic on my part haha

    Yup there's this one guy who always starts the text with ..

    'Yo how cumz you don't text manz no more?!!?!'

    To which I reply

    'Didn't want to'

    Then I'll get the same text the next month with out fail.
    I think he texts it to most girls in his address book as a convo starter

    I only like texts. I don't like phone calls. From anyone. I usually don't pick up if it's a phonecall.

    This is because if it's certain people I might be on the phone for ages, if it's others, they might be asking me to do something which I either can't or can't be arsed to do, therefore a text is easier than explaining. Or it means I'm in trouble (parents). So I ignore the call & wait for a text so I can think up an excuse or give easy answers to time stealers.

    Not annoyed, but it does disappoint me when it's not who I want it to be.

    I love getting texts! Especially when they are from my OH....unfortunately that is a rare occasion :'(
    I hate it when he doesn't reply...At the moment though, I'm really rubbish with replying because I can't afford heating in my house atm and it's so cold that I can't move my fingers very well - I can't just about type on my keyboard.

    There is why guy who texts me about four or five times a day, he's a friend and I really like him but he just. won't. stop. texting. I ignore them, but he texts anyway. Meh, if it makes him happy.

    People don't text me unless they actually need to convey information/ask me something/reply to my text. I don't think I've ever had a "text conversation" in my life.
    So, it can't annoy me because it doesn't happen. :p:

    No, 'cause I get texts from the same 2 people every months. I'm the one that always texts people but they never text back.. Although I hate it when you send someone a text and they take an entire day to reply with something like "lol".

    I love getting texts (and sending them).

    Phone calls however...not so good. I think i have a mini panic attack every time someone calls me, i really don't know why but i get very anxious talking on phones.

    One guy texts me (and all my friends) about once a month with a text which ALWAYS, without fail, reads:

    'Iya bbe how r u? x'

    I don't think any of us have ever replied, but seemingly that is irrelevant.

    There are some people I receive texts from where I just think 'I cannot be bothered with you right now, just leave me be, you selfish eejit, bleeping at me and demanding my time', as if they know I'm in a bad mood! Ha, I'm so unreasonable.

    Some people are just a lot of 'effort' to text, if anyone knows that feeling. You see their name on the screen and you think 'Oh god, here we go', and the thought of replying becomes a burden. Maybe I'm just a really horrible person though?

    Yup. I have a particular friend who will only text me when 'they' want something - favour or money.
    Otherwise I never hear from them.

    So yes, that annoys me - but I usually just delete it straight off.

    My ten year old neighbour, who just got a new phone, will forever text me. and will say "am i annoying you" and i say "ofcourse not." and if i don't reply right away, i get "where are you? why aren't you replying?" despite her only saying stuff like, "i just came in from outside."

    and no matter what without fail, even if i haven't texted her back or it's a few hours later, she will go, " i have to go now. bye." quite sweet... but lil annoying.

    This! Especially when you've sent a text asking a question and you need the answer soon, you check and it's something like your network provider giving you a reminder or someone replying to something you sent days ago and forgot about.
