You may think group texting is a great way to keep in touch with your friends without the hassle of sending everyone messages individually. But no, you are wrong.

Group texts are their own circle of Hell. They're inconvenient to everyone except the sender, they connect strangers who seriously can't be bothered with one another otherwise, and they're constantly disruptive to people who have other things to do.

You aren't popular or efficient; you're The Worst. If it's not worth sending individual messages to your buddies (copying and pasting is a thing on smartphones, you know), it's not worth a message at all.

And if you're the person who constantly replies all on a group text — or even an email — don't feel too superior. You're The Second Worst because you're still awful.

If you send a group text, please know that this is what we're all thinking. Seriously, we hate you.

When someone forgets they're on a group text and sends what they think is a private, TMI-filled message.
