Don't Send a Text at 6am, dammit

It never fails.
I had a rough night.  At 2am, I gave up, turned off my alarm, and decided I would just sleep in and go to work late today.

Always on mornings like this, a "friend" will text me half an hour before my alarm would have gone off if I'd had it on.

Why do people think it's okay to send a text at an hour when they would never, ever consider it okay to make a phone call?

I know what you're thinking. "If you don't want to be disturbed, turn off your phone."

That's a perfect solution for someone who does not have children or elderly relatives.  That only works for someone who is not responsible for anything other than him/herself.  Yes, I'm extremely envious that you don't have anything better to do in the middle of the night besides sleep.  I will never, ever have that luxury again, because I will always have children for whom I will always want to be available at any hour of the day or night.

How about people just having some freaking sense of time and decorum?

I hate people today.
Everybody sucks.

Amen sista! I firmly believe no one should try to communicate with me until after 9am. Sure I get to work at 8 but my coffee doesn't kick in right away.

Ayup...I keep my phone on vibrate at night, but a text will still wake me. And I keep it on because the Spouse Thingy works nights, and what if there's an emergency...? Text me before 10 and I will be a very unhappy wabbt...
