Texting Etiquette

A few friends had coffee last night. One person leaves and then a topic comes up amongst those of us still there. I text the one that left to inform/ask a question. I immediately get a response to which I text another response. This all happens about 10:45pm. I don't ever hear back regarding my second text. Until it wakes me up at 6:28am.


Of course, I've done the same thing. One night, err morning, I texted a friend. I really did think she would be awake. I wasn't being completely thoughtless, though it was 12:45am and my question definitely could have waited until the next day. Her response to my question? "Why are you texting me at 12:45am?"



  1. I sent the text in response the night before but for some reason my phone has issues and won't send the text. As I was getting ready to go to work I looked at my phone which said error sending. So I hit resend and stuck it in my pocket. About 2 minutes later I thought... I hope this doesn't wake her up. My apologies.

    BTW you never responded to my text ;)
