What would your txt msg templates be?

Reading time: 1 minute

These are the text message (SMS) templates that came with my phone:

  1. I am late. I will be there at
  2. I’m at home. Please call
  3. I’m at work. Please call
  4. I’m in a meeting, call me later at
  5. I will be arriving at
  6. Meeting is cancelled.
  7. Please call
  8. See you at
  9. See you in
  10. Sorry, I can’t help you on this.

I’ve never used them. I’m not sure I ever will.

“Sorry, I can’t help you on this.” Seriously!

I mean they all seem to be written in some strange language from a bygone era. For starters they all have complete words and correctly used punctuation.

It got me wondering what templates you’d end up with if you went round asking people what text messages they send the most.

  1. I have only one – saved in the “drafts” part of my phone:

    “Husband alert: your husband will be home in 10 minutes.”

    I figure that I ought to give her an even chance.
