I understand the need. I really do. I also text, but not while driving, and the fact that you almost hit my little pooch today sent me through the roof. You couldn't hear my yelling and screaming though, because your music was too loud in your puke green Volkswagen Bug.
Stop it. Stop texting while driving. Your boyfriend or mom or bestie can wait. Put the phone away. Turn it on silent, because next time it may not be a dog, or it may not be"almost". Ridiculous.
