Why I never send...


Group Messages


Ever since Globe launched the "unlimited text service" to it's users, the hysteria spread like wild fire. The hype has been assimilated into today's "Pop-culture-kuno" as part of most people's day to day habits. The GM's (group messages) have taken over the ordinary Filipino teen's social life, which prompted me to label these messages as an extension of their social life.


Everyday, my clasmates fill me inboxes with their GM's, starting from their hi's and hello's, to more personal messages directed towards a specific person. But, I can't help but be all "giddy" inside when I'm being mentioned in their messages. Now, more than ever, my friends beef up their finger muscles to *hold on, may message ako.....shet, text messages full na* text my Globe classmates (out of 50 students, 47 are practically active Globe users, including me), and update....greet..and smile. Some even hold contests and send 'virtual food' through text. It's fun, really. (no sarcasm)


But, being the guy I know I am and am not, I don't see the significance with the text marathons they make. It's not that I don't appreciate the 'joy' my classmates send through text, but, what'll I GM about????? Oh well, leave the cooking to the cooks and the GM's to the 'happy people' i suppose.



Sige lang, balang araw (sana bago graduation), mag-GM din ako...tignan niyo lang.... It'll be fun to do something you never did throughout the course of your pitiful life...and wear a smile while doing it.

di rin ako nagpapadala ng gm.. dunno why.. i appreciate little hi's and hello's.. pero kung lagi na nakakainis! onti lang naman ung space sa phone ko! huhu... i'm such a good person kc.. i don't want to subject them to that torture!


gio! not texting! bad!

twistedigest said...

like you, i have little use for globe's "fun" services...sorry kish! ves has been keeping us busy with her 40-item exercises, and we have to rewrite them all to correct whatever grammar mistake they have! aaahhh!

my cellphone has very limited space, and when my classmates send gm's, they REALLY send gm's!
