I had a huge misunderstanding with someone over text last week and it blew up into a big fight. The weaknesses of technology is that it lacks subtle cues and timeliness of face to face interactions or even the telephone. It makes me hesitant to use text or IM for that matter.
Luckily, we resolved most of the problem, but not after some damage was done. At this juncture I don’t know if this will permanently damage the relationship.
UPDATE: Nope. Everything was fine soon.
