I will say that my step-daughter has a terrible habit of texting when I go to pick her up from somewhere. It's like midnight, she's been to a party (she's 18), I drive out to pick her up, she gets in my vehicle, mumbles a 'hello', then buries her face into her phone, texting.
Okay, I know it's my self centredness here, but I feel like an upaid taxi driver when she does this, especially at midnight, when I'd rather be in bed that driving around collecting her from a party. She could at least make small-talk and pleasantries; or God fobid; say 'thank you'!!!!
There are occasions when texting is rude.
But hey, step kids are called step kids because they force you to work the steps.
Welcome to the forum, Leonidas.
Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.” Rumi (No sniggering from the sex addicts)
