Agree. My family has a group thing on Messenger. If it annoys me, I just mute my phone and go on with my life like normal. I can catch up on the conversation later.I'm in a group snap chat thing with some friends. I don't mind it most of the time as it's rarely used but for silly things or if something is getting planned.
What gets annoying is when it is someone's birthday and my phone is going off every few minutes for about an hour with people chiming in happy birthday. Even though most didn't know it was their birthday until someone else said something.
I frequently get texts for the last person that had my number. Must have been some lady that's really into her church group. I got fed up after a night of drinking and responded that she died. Felt bad about it the next day, but not enough to correct the text.Block them or respond 'please take me out of the text'. Seems to work.
I've had that happen with people that I don't even know that must have mistaken my number or something.
Apparently someone who's friends/family with 15 other people in Iowa somewhere had Covid and is having a baby too.
I didn’t respond when wished a happy birthday by someone in March. Didn’t recognize the number and my birthday is in October.What gets me is the people that feel the need to like all the texts to show that they saw them. We don't all need to have read receipts on all the texts you open up!
Thanks for the input. Going to use the “Hide Alerts” function going forward and ignore the countless text responses from those who obviously feel pressured to respond to an Alpha Type A personality.Using the “Hide Alerts” function has been a game changer for the annoying group texts I receive.
