Back in the 1800ís you would take your message to the local telegraph office and hand it to the operator. He would charge you a fee and then one letter at a time send your message to the next office and so on down the line until it was delivered to the intended person.
Of course all this was replaced eventually by the telephone. Now you could actually speak to a person and they could in turn talk to you. Obviously a much faster means of communications than the telegraph.
Now we fast forward to the 21st century and somehow people have lost the ability to speak as you see them everywhere you go texting one whole letter at a time and for this the cell phone company is very happy to charge you a fee.
The problem is that while the telegraph operator was smart enough to sit in a chair and not on the cowcatcher of a locomotive when sending a message, today you can find someone texting while they are driving a car and guess what they hit while driving. A train at the railroad crossing, the back of a big rig or someone like my friend who was on his motorcycle stopped at a traffic light when he was rear ended.
