I was just doing some reading back and saw the discussion on texting/using an iPod when talking with people.

It shits me off so much. Even when i'm getting on the bus i'll take my headphones off when it's time to interact with the driver, and that's if i even bother with listening to something when i'm not on the bus.

And texting when you're talking to someone: i can't bear this. And when you see it happening to others, it looks terrible.

I damn well hope Chass has gone quiet just because she's busy typing the most epic story ever about why she's tired.

Not saying it's the case with your friend, of course, but good god, we need teachers who value a high quality of communication!

I see where you're coming from. She's actually a great communicator but a lazy typist. Given she probably won't be having internets chats with her students, it's probably not a big thing.

YES. I always, ALWAYS take off my headphones when I use the bus (it's not necessary for the tram or train now that conductors and guards don't exist). Or at the supermarket, I see a lot of people cruise through with their headphones on and don't even seem to think to turn it off. Personally? I'll always take off my headphones when at the deli or the check-out or at any other time when I need to interact with staff. Usually I just take them off when I get to the deli and don't put them back on until I'm walking back to the tram. Sure, the music in Coles is pretty shit and their ads even worse, but I can put up with that for 5 minutes rather than fiddling around to put my headphones back on multiple times.

I'd still be concerned that somebody who's a lazy typist will in turn not exactly encourage good written communication habits in their students. Certainly it troubles me that lazy typing is becoming the norm rather than the exception.

I agree totally. I blame mobile phones. And rap music.
