Isn’t it just amazing how the lines of communication also turn out to be the source of MIScommunication? 🙂 As soon as
the line gets cut and you’re calling each other back, there’s a moment there when you want to call each other right away because (a) you were having a juicy conversation or (b) you just don’t want to let the other party think that you purposely hung up on him/her. Then there’s the panic of calling each other back which doesn’t help at all since you won’t be able to contact each other anyway.
Technology has definitely made our lives easier (What a cliche! Hehe) but with the convenience comes the pitfalls 😉
More technology mishaps here:
Emoticons are Overrated – This is probably our most popular post ever. Last time I checked, it earned 20,000++ notes on Tumblr. O_O Which just proves how much people’s hearts are broken each day thanks to the absence of a colon & a close parenthesis 🙂
A Dummy’s Guide to Emoticons – During the dawn of the texting era, adults would always ask me what those random symbols at the end of the sentence meant. Was it a curse or a code. Speaking of adults, let me just share with you how proud I am of my grandmother. She’s the coolest grandma ever. She owns a Samsung Galaxy Tab. She knows how to work different phones and since she can’t walk around that much, she always asks her yaya (caretaker) to take pictures of the family for her. She would also text or call me on my birthday & she learned how to text before my mom did 😉 I love you Lola Ming 😀
The Two Sides of Texting – We’ve all been through this. It’s so convenient to give “K” as a reply and it’s also annoying to receive it. Well, that’s just one of the issues tackled in this cartoon.
Waiting for a Reply – The beauty of texting is that we get to drop anyone a message anytime. The downside of having a suspended conversation is, someone is left hanging in the air. There’s always this awkward moment when your heart sinks and you get paranoid while waiting for an important reply.
Lame Lies & Ugly Truths – The convenience of making technology an excuse. O_o
