Spotted on Twitter: “Blackberries, iPhones and Twitter killed the dating world. R.I.P.” This statement coming from The Fly Guy himself, made me think, “How do we even manage to hook up in person anymore?!” I know a lot of us are way into technology and social networking, but is it becoming harder for you to strike a balance with old school dating?

You know, calling a person up, asking them out, going to pick them up, and enjoying the company with quality face to face time. Yeah, that’s old school dating! Today, we send evites, tweets, Facebook messages to set things up with friends and dates.

The younger guy (I still need a name for him) I am seeing is all about the text. It got to the point where I had to tell him what I was comfortable with on text, and what actually required a phone call.

We have so many ways to showcase our personalities these days: Facebook, Twitter, personal blogs, text messaging, instant messaging, or email. Whew, that’s a lot of typing at each other. How can you determine if a person is actually interested in you when they are using “text”, which doesn’t exactly scream big effort?

Are you seeing someone who spends more of their time typing at you then seeing you in person? Do you think that is genuine interest or boredom?

Guys, you aren’t really big on phones and chatting, do you prefer the texting to communicate because it is a compromise for you?

Good Morning All,

I don’t mind the text setting time and location arrangements. But it is hard as all get out to have a meaningful convo with a person via text..You want to ask some deeper level convo and you can’t get the voice inflections or facial expressions via text. I think if anything it more lazy than interest or boredom.

Good Morning!

I don’t mind texting when its simple stuff like Kym mentioned, but I will not have a full fledge conversation with you. Pick up the phone and call! Also, things can get misconstrued over text, so its better to just say what you want via phone or person and save the cute and simple stuff for text.

Happy Friday All. Whew.

Yes, I’ve noticed that some of my friends have taken to reaching out to me on Facebook rather any other media. I still prefer email. If you’re telling me to order a bridesmaid dress, I’d rather a forum that will still be around even if the social networking site is not.

And in terms of guys, I do let them know I’m not the text type of girl while still getting to know you. I’ve heard all the excuses “I’m not a phone person, etc.” Well, good for you. However, if you wanna get to know me, you’ll have to learn the art of conversation. Sure, we can do it over coffee, drinks, or dinner, but you might as well only spend your night and weekend minutes as we learn about one another.

Haha…hahahaha…snickering. (I am literally blushingly laughing)

Anyhoo,

I think that excessive texting and emails are quite impersonal and yes are killing the beauty and intimacy of old school dating and courtships.

The one thing I hate about texting and emails, the interpretation is left up to the one reading it. I have seen and heard of more than a few situations where something via technology was misinterpreted therefore creating a technodrama situation.

Beyond that fact of face to face communication creating a personal connection and bond, body language, facial expressions and voice tone speaks the truth.

And lawd the time it takes to type something compared to the time it takes to actually speak it just makes trying to have a conversation via text just seem, like a waste of my valuable time.

What kind of phone service do you have that wouldn’t allow texting.. After explaining that I can receive a msg, I just chose to communicate in other ways. I grew up in the era of the pager, leave your phone number with 911 or 69 at the end.. That was my texting.. All this new stuff is lame for grown azz adults.. If I hear another 30yr old and over person talking about twitter, I will turn into hulk.. Example: “Im taking a do do” SEND… I will text simple thing only, like hi, good morning, have a great day, thinking of you.. Nothing more than that..

heh heh … wise, as you know, my relationship started electronically. we met face-to-face a few years ago, and have seen each other once-a-year since. but our whole relationship developed because of blogging and social networking sites. in fact, before we started dating, we had talked on the phone for maybe 7 minutes total in three years. it took another two months after we became a couple before we actually talked on the phone to say more than “where you at?”

that said, i agree that txting is a bad way to get to know someone. though, to be honest, i mind it far less now that i have upgraded to a phone with a keypad. that T9 s**t is so not the business when somebody wants to treat txting like instant messaging. i’m not trying to sprain a thumb because you are too effin’ lazy to dial a number and engage in a conversation … lol.

PROF. Lil flirty msgs are sweet n fun as preelude to a date. But they can also easily lead to Text Sex, which ain’t a bad thang at all if you’re already ‘there.’ But I think text somehow makes some dude feel they can escalate the momentum and slip a lil sumthin extra in befoe it’s time. Literally & figuratively.

I’ve overheard at many a happy hour “so, do you have Facebook/Twitter?” :lol:

I’m on Facebook. They guys I date are on Facebook, but the last thing I want to do as I’m getting to know someone is add them as a “friend.” It completely spoils the getting to know you part. And it a recipe in misinterpretation once you see something you don’t like posted on someone’s wall.

Texting I don’t mind, but some of this new technology stuff is way beyond out of hand. There is a dude on my FB friends list that “must” change his status like 100 times a day it seems like. There is also another girl who does. To me, that’s too much! I’m sorry! Like the girl who does it, like very hour she is posting something like “this watermelon is the bomb” or “getting ready to take a shower”. I mean, GTFOH!! And the way both of them type is SO annoying! Like the dude: “man, on da way 2 da hse to get dis and dat cuz u kno u at da crib lqqn fo da likka sto to get at deez hoez”. Seriously!! Now, Twitter….I just can’t get with that at all!

Oh, I guess I’ll say something about the topic – I don’t mind texting b/c I hate talking on the phone. However, it urks me when I call someone, they don’t answer but turn right around and send you a txt. I understand they may be in a situation which prevents them from talking, but I’d rather they just wait until they are able to talk to contact me. That is all…

lite flirty messages

Yeah that’s cool. Texting is ideal to send a playful flirty greeting just because in the middle of the day when that special someone crosses your mind. It’s sorta a “I’m thinking about you” type of notification. However it’s not to be abused. Overuse kills the high energy that you get when receiving or sending one.

Her pulling a pro athlete was pretty impressive though. It’s reported that her relationship with Keith was abusive, but she’s the one who lost custody of their two boys.

That might give another man pause, but she got that man to marry her after a month.

Oh yeah, I saw the dude on Wed night at my friends party and he was like “sooo, wassup wit u…you don’t update your status hardly ever”. I was like “huh, what? what status?” and he was like “you know, your status”. I was like “I don’t have a status”. he was like “not your relationship status, your facebook status” and I was like “what! what status do i need to update?” and he was like “well, i always update my status..like i updated my status to say i was coming here to the party” and I was like “ummm omg” *blank look on my face*.

So, anyway throughout the course of the night every time i see dude, he is on his phone updating his status. So to me, i’m thinking “ok, here this guy is out at a restaraunt with good music, food, and plenty of attractive women…and every 2 seconds he is changing his FB status instead of mingling and being social here…wtf…why even go out if all you are gonna do is be obsessive like that changing your status”!

Plus, this dude has no personality whatsoever i realized. I mean, why would he rather be on his phone doing whatever vs talking to the people in real life who are there in person? smdh.

Morning!

Whew! I will say this I am not into the convo going on via text, unless there are some dire reasons for that mode of communications (I feel it is the bottom feeder of convo). I don’t mind a thinking of you or some nice naughty messages, but please if you just met me make and effort, and if I am your woman keep making the effort. I just feel that it is some low-budget-title-pawn game trying to be passed off as a NY Strip.

I am with you Ared I do prefer emails that is cool, but my thing is lets be human beings and talk, laugh, touch each other and really see what is there…don’t hide behind a keypad unless you are hiding something.

I will leave you all with this one Sunday Bishop mentioned that you know the text not the person, because a lot of folks are forwarding those messages to everyone on the rooster.

Good morning everyone!

Texting is too impersonal for me. “Touchbase” texting is fine, but it’s entirely too much work to carry on a full fledged conversation. One should always pick up the phone and carry on a conversation that requires 2 or more sentences. I still like to hear the inflection, deep sighs, etc in a person’s voice while talking.

I’m not into texting, I can’t relate to it and all the lingo’s are way too much for me to remember, the time it takes for me to type a message I could easily pick up the phone and call which would be more personal and less confusion. I agree it’s good for quick messages. My daughter, bless her heart went well over her 1000 minutes of texting a couple of times so I finally got her on the unlimited plan. I don’t twitter, Facebook, I use it to keep intouch with family memebers.

She was like “excuse me, i didn’t know I needed to use spell-check to be on Facebook and i wrote it like that because that is the way i like to write it”! I was like “wow”. smdh.

Weight it’s funny that you say that because I am the total opposite. I only take the time to text when I am not busy. Texting take more time than it takes to make a phone call so if I am super busy and it’s very hectic I pick up the phone say what I have to say. It’s quicker.

@Fulfilling *** misconstrued over text*** great point! I always mix stuff up when reading a text especially if I am at work (I have a demanding job)…so I can miss something. I had an associate send me a deep text about some changes in his life I sent him a quick note because I thought that was a convo for telephone or in-person…I guess I was the only person realizing that you should not reduce God to a text message, but that is solely my opinion.

@Pretty Wings I like 007

I am of the younger generation but aside from that, I just never been much of a telephone person. When cultivating the beginnings of a possible relationship I suck it up and talk until we get to a point where I’m comfortable enough to say that I’d rather text.

@Pag – you are killing me with your text talk in your posts!!!! Lol!!!

@AR – I didn’t see that episode. Last season I didn’t watch b/c I thought they were ghetto and only perpetuated the negative image of black women – especially in Atlanta. But, after last week (hell, this week too) and that episode with Sheree… I’m hooked!!!

I see a lot of folks on here are on FB… I wanna know what some of yall look like! Lol

Anyway, I guess I’ll do some work now. I have been here for 2 hours now and all I’ve done is goofed around on FB and blogged. BBL!

Then one day I got ragged for not being up on Facebook and Staceye just showed me how to use it…LOL once the new account came Isent out a message saying don’t send me anything personal because someone else has access to my account…then I just changed the password…so I am good now..I’ve been having some excellent football discussions on there..it’s pretty cool…and new…folks are tagging me in photos and they show up on your own page…that’s cool

Hello everyone
I’m not techno savy person however @ times I will send a text once in a while. I agree with some of the other blogger’s that it is better to have a convo by phone rather than texting, it’s so impersonal. I too like to hear the sigh or the voice tones especiall if i’m in a new
relationship. Face to face is so much better, looking into someone’s
eyes can tell you what they are really saying or not saying.

I resisted for a long time, but it’s been really cool. I’m going to be missing my school’s black alumni reunion and I was bummed about that but with Facebook I get to keep up with all those folks anyway.

As an early adopter, I’ve been into technology since 1982. Bought an early PC, studied CS, programmed through the mid-90’s, first for fun and later for profit; became a data center manager, network engineer, back to programming and then to tech director through dotcom years; now heavily involved in information security and privacy. Believe me, I get it.

Personal blogs scream ‘narcissism’. Facebook is a lonely hearts club where 15% of users suffer something the AMA calls FAD, or Facebook Addictive Disorder, similar to Gaming Addictive Disorder or a more generalized Internet Addictive Disorder. Twitter is aptly named, providing a new marketing channel more than anything else, with $650 mil pumped in through investment capital while nobody has yet figured out how to make any money on it — but that’s the goal of Twitter, of course, to make money, just like all the other so-called ’social networking’ entities.

They all represent threats to personal privacy, personal and business confidentiality, and network security. Only a naive newbie, someone relatively idiotic, or one caught up in the addictive malaise would see great merit in such enterprises. That seems to be about 70% of Americans, so far. All are tools of marketeers, who are plainly wrecking the Internet. It’s still usable as that for which it was originally intended, but relatively few actually use it for that. Most disturbing!

TGIF Blog Fam!

Me & SO are very busy throughout the day & I don’t believe in calling folks at work all the time like a teenager. So we sent small texts to each other once or twice, just to say hey! Texts are helpful too for quick messages or I’ve given addresses & directions to people & vice versa. Other than that, no long text conversations. Refuse to FB or Twitter too, just no need to have something ELSE to try to keep up with in my busy life! Plus I don’t like the loss of privacy. Employers do look at stuff like that now.

Too many folk hide behind texts, emails, blogs & other chat stuff when they should be out having real conversations and meeting with people & networking.

FB is good to catch up with old friends… But bad when old friends try and catch up with you.. That Friend suggestion thing kills me, its like nope, but I realized they are doing the same thing to me.. So I guess the feelings mutual. lol.. Texting sucks the life out of you, or the relationship.. Ex: woman/girl text me as Im walking to my truck, says hello whatcha up too? I look up and see her sitting in her car looking at me. I close my phone and keep walking as if I never received the msg.. Of course I got a phone call shortly after.. My two 14 yr nieces are pro’s at texting. Ex: text msg from one pass the ketchup. send. I look at her and knock the phone out of her hand, like stop playing… But maybe Im just being mean…

Everything you put into social networking sites serves to profile you. The profiles used for marketing can easily become actuarial tables that indicate your credit worthiness, insurance risk, gauge how employable you are. That they tend to carry a risk of addictive behavior is by design. They seek data about you any way they can get it.

Similarly, Google Mail parses and profiles based on message body text, saving the messages and profiled results indefinitely, whether you think you’ve deleted those messages or not. Would you care to put all of your confidential business information in Google’s hands through the use of Google Apps? Twitter did. An account of theirs was hacked and sensitive business information published freely on the web a month or so ago. Real sharp, those Twitter guys.

Skype admits that they’re capable of tapping any conversation at any time, and that they have carried out such eavesdropping on governments and business entities. Any file you transfer using Skype will reside, in whole or in part, on computers all over the network, without your knowledge or ability to audit.

On and on and on. Hopefully, you’ve all heard stuff like this before, right? And you’re concerned about the impact of all this on dating?!

W8 – No, unless the tag you.

The main page is your “news” feed so you can keep up with what everyone is doing in the feed. You mostly see status updates but pics and links will show up on there too.

The highlight part is the funniest. FB tells you what they THINK you want to see. I’ve seen some relationships change to “it’s complicated” and one girl enter into a relationship with another woman. It’s stuff that people put on their OWN pages that FB broadcasts to all their friends. Depending on how strong or weak your privacy settings are, anyting you do on your page has the potential to show up in your friends news feed.

I heard must businesses utilize FB when it comes to hiring.

I work in a law firm. The HR here does look at FB/Myspace/Twitter/Plaxo in reviewing applicants. i spent days looking at Facebook for them. (Which is why some days I spend more time on this blog than others).

I also look at those sites for any information to use against them in court. For example, in one case the plaintiff (we represented the defendants) claimed that he didn’t know one of our witnesses. However, the witness was a friend on his FB!! That made the plaintiff look like a liar in front of a jury and he lost his case.

All thanks to FB!!!

abc What you are saying is true… but the same hold true to any digital communication including cell phones, email, land line telephones, etc. All communication is digital these days, all communications are transmitted over the internet, all communications are tapped by local and federal agencies with or without court orders.
True, we make it easier for non-govt. organizations to gain info by posting it on FB/twitter/myspace, etc. But there is no gurantee of privacy in any electronic communication these days.
Aside from the profiling by employers the rest of what you say is going to happen whether we use media sites or not. Credit & Insurance Issuers already look at where you shop, what you buy, and other unknown factors when issuing credit. There was a case where an insurance company got frequent shopper files from grocery stores by subpoena for a slip and fall case, and they argued that the man bought wine/liquor frequently, therefore he was likely drunk and they should not have to pay a claim, I don’t recall if they won, but its still gone wayyyy too far already.

Kym – Most definitely. That’s why I said it depends on your settings. The way my friends relationship status change like underwear, I’m thinking they don’t know this.

One guy went from “engaged” to “it’s complicated” to “single” in the course of a week. Relationships are hard enough without 150 people watching it happen. I hit him up privately and told him how to fix that.

I’m aware that people are reluctant to accept the reality of the how, what and why of things like that. I serve only to inform of risk. Personally, my Internet footprint is so small that most of you could probably never find me, and I stay mindful of keeping it that way. Conversely, most folks tend to think that the bigger their Internet footprint, the better. That’s a foolish and needless assumption of risk, with negligible entertainment value in return. But hey… more power to you! Be young, hip, on the edge! But be informed.

EPO, if confidentiality is vital, encrypt, whether voice or data. It’s not the transport that needs to be secure, but rather the data itself. There are numerous encryption technologies that the government can’t crack.

That’s an extreme position to take, I don’t even encrypt to that extent. But I don’t communicate that much using digital means, either. I consider most, if not all of them, to be social ills, quite apart from the obvious risks of security, privacy and confidentiality.

That wraps around to the topic, I guess. If someone insisted on texting me, I’d just stop communicating with them altogether. I consider it rude. If you want to talk to me, come talk to me. Give me a call and we’ll set up a time to meet and talk. Actual communication, body language, facial expression, bad breath, everything! We might even enjoy each other’s company. That’s human interaction, not bowing before the Blackberry idol. If you’re too busy for that, then you’re over-extended, or you just don’t have the knack of such human interaction. Folks refer to that as “People Skills”, remember those? Maybe not, if you’re young enough. They’re worth having.

Ella, VISA and MC have been selling information about what you buy since the 1970’s. To that extent, purchasing privacy’s horse has been out of the barn a long time. Retail stores save your credit card information on their networks for at least a short amount of time, and their Point-of-Sale mechanisms are often vulnerable to eavesdropping, especially with adoption of 802.11x wireless protocols in POS systems and in-store LANs. It’s a problem, for sure, but it’s nothing compared to what you give away to web sites.

For a long time I tried to avoid buying things on the web, but retail shops inventories shrink and shrink, and if you order over the phone, they’re just entering the transaction into the same web page you could do yourself, so that worm’s out of the can too. Profiling based on purchasing is long-standing and a permanent fixture, for sure.

That’s not a reason to give away every scrap of data about yourself, though, especially to enterprises known for their lack of awareness or caring, much less diligence, on these matters. The sole reason they’re in it is to get that data and re-market it. They don’t take many protective measures, either.

Capture of IP addresses is meaningless. That doesn’t give them a thing, necessarily. Do we discuss how networks work next?

The last time that I went to Greenville, SC (which is about 2 hrs outside of the northern ATL ‘burbs) they had a Jack In the Box. That was last year. I didn’ttry them again though.

WTH…powdered meat???? I am not an astronaut orbiting the Earth! Gimme some food.

Speaking of food…I must say that I have enjoyed Downtown Atlanta Restaraunt Week. The wife chose wisely. Ruth Chris was good, Morton’s (who usually doesn’t participate in Restaraunt Week was excellent. My wife love the fruity passion cocktail that they have with raspberries, pineapples, and some other fruity fruit.

That is all. This seems to the be trend closing

@abc oh i know that IPs can be faked / concealed. but if you use a proxy server, you aren’t anonymous to that proxy. software like tor is slightly better, but it’s also really easy to get wrong.

still, my overall point is that even if you don’t give the scrap, someone else will. and if someone wants to do damage, facebook / twitter / etc. is probably the least effective way to go about it. and if one identity goes wrong, it’s possible to craft a new one — both online and off.

Sounds like denial, Ella. I’m not casting aspersions, really; understanding the background, breadth, depth and impacts takes a lot of knowledge about how it all really works together, and I’m accustomed to people that don’t want to take my word for it, especially those who are emotionally invested in those technologies.

It reminds me of a JavaScript Programming book I read 15 years ago, which stated that while it was theoretically possible for some underhanded techniques to be used to compromise user privacy and confidentiality, making them trackable and traceable no matter their activities as long as they were connected to a network of any kind, nobody would ever really do that, it was just urban legend, folklore. Yet, the company I worked for at the time, concerned primarily with collection of personal data for purposes of marketing profiles, was doing exactly that and 10 times more (and worse!) already. People don’t realize the lengths that technology will go to in order to make a buck, or many multiple millions, billions. It’s the biggest pot of gold at the end of the biggest rainbow that ever was.

Shoot, maybe I’m on the wrong side of this fence! Nah.

I say Modern because my mother, grandmother, aunts, etc knew how to prepare and season dishes that tasted wonderful without all the grease & salt that kills people. I don’t know what most of this mess that passes for soul food is at most restaraunts and fast-food fried chicken & such is the worst. But I’m a spoiled foodie, so my palate is very discriminating!

Yep. the Entertainment book has deals with many restaraunts. We use the 2 for the price of 1 to Imperial Fez. That alone pays for the book. McKinnon’s Louisiana Restaraunt in Buckhead has a deal with them. There are others. They are deal where you don’t have to use a coupon to get the deal.

Not to mention that Regal Cinemas has a coupons that save us quite a bit on the box office price. Two weeks after release of a movie, you can get ticket for said movie of 8 bucks at night.

Second attempt…hopefully not a dup.

Hey Wisey – How about Calvin aka “Youngblood” for the lad?

ON TOPIC – Regarding texting…I’ve tried to meet the man in the middle for the sake of compromise (on my part) when it comes to texting. Heyal, I’ve went out of my way to include text messaging in my wireless plan on one occasion. Good thing they do rollover – however, I still can’t stand it.

Emails…I don’t mind so much, but after awhile, I’m not as interested simply because both methods just get old. FB, MySpace and any other network (affliated or not) – as I’ve stated before, not my thing. For me, it has sort of a “poptart”/high school musical feel. Sure…it’s nice to reconnect with folks that I actually want to reconnect/catch up with (occasionally). But to have access to my whereabouts and such…naw. It’s enough that the government and other agencies can track me down when they see fit, I don’t …let me rephrase – I have a serious problem giving the general public access to track me down. So when someone asks me if I have any of those, I PROUDLY say – NO, I do not. Shoot, I’ve seen folks out and about while shopping, running errands and such, that I knew back in school or growing up in the neighborhood…and not all, but with most – I give little to no recognition. I’m pretty pleasant, cordial and all those wonderful things, but all in ya’ face – I am not. “A hello, nice to see you and take care” will suffice…at least for me.

Cee Hey sis, what up? You’re just itchin’ to get me started.

When I got my ticket, I was gonna do the probation, but then I was leaving the state the next morning heading to Phoenix for NBA All Star Weekend and the PO dude was like “you have to get permission first to leave the state”.

A friend of mine, says he lost respect for her as an actress because of that scene alone. I asked him about a few others, who had done such raw sex scenes as well. He was basically like “I look at it as – if it were my daughter up there showing her tits and azz all over the place, I’d have a major problem with that.” So I of course said “but she’s not your daughter…as a matter of fact you don’t have one”. And he replied, “But she’s a sistah, period…that’s some ol Hollywood bull and ya’ll know better”. This actually reminds me of Jada Pinkett and Allen Payne in Jason’s Lyric. And I didn’t really hear many bruthas complaining about that, so… just sayin

ARed- Yep! I had to go to court that night because it was mandatory that I appear in front of the judge. So, I called my friend and asked him what I should do. He is a pro at getting tickets lol. He told me to do an online traffic school and take the certificate to the judge that night. So, I did. The online traffic school was like $25 and I did it and printed out my certificate. He also told me to print out my driving records from Cali and AZ and take that with me to show that I was a good driver before I moved to GA. So, I did.

Well, I show up at court and I am there like 2 hours! Finally, they call me up and the judge was like “wow….51 in a 25 zone, huh?”. I said, “at this time I would like to request a reduction in the fine. i have attended traffic school and I have with me documentation of my driving records from Cali and Az”. The he said “oh….California, huh? I don’t know what it is about California drivers who move to Atlanta thinking they can drive the same way”. I didn’t say anything. So, then he said “Well, your records appear to be clean and I commend you on attending traffic school, BUT, it’s not gonna help you in this case. The $762 is the MINIMUM fine for this ticket. Consider yourself lucky because it could have been up to $1,000k”. I just stood there with a blank stare on my face. lmao.

SCool- YEP, they get you with that probation mess. The dude said, we will give you 12 months to pay the $762, but you have to come to the office every month and pay $112 and $80 of that will go towards the ticket, the rest is the administration fee. I was like oh hellz no. Why am I gonna pay over $1,000 for a ticket that is $762?!

I have other uses of $750 other than giving the City of Atlanta that money. They’ve already raised my property taxes and my water bill. I’m not giving them another $750 without a fight.

Besides, they clocked me going a speed that I really feel I was not traveling. I think they upped it to get more $. Cuz had it been one more mph, it was in “suspended license” territory. How convenient.

You pretty much need to show up if you have a court date. The only way to not show is to pay in advance.

You may be lucky and the officer might not show up. Sometimes, Judges will throw it out or reduce it if that happens.

$750?? Then you are less likely to get it thrown out, but it might get reduced if the officer doesn’t show.

Sorry to hear that.

Were you going more than 20 mph over the limit. You are lucky because the new superspeeder law doesn’t go into effect until Jan. 1, 2010. Which would add another $200 on to the amount.

ARed- The thing with the red light camera’s is that when I fight them, I am not trying to get off based on saying “I wasn’t speeding”. I get off based on the fact that the way in which those tickets are served (through the mail) is illegal. Like I said, if there is a loop hole somewhere, I’m gonna find it. I probably got 4 of those tickets in Phoenix alone during the 3 years I lived there. A lot of my coworkers would all get off on theirs too.

He said I was going 29 miles over. 30 would be a suspended license.

Do they try the cases that day? I am building my case and my court date is coming up quickly. I thought this first date was just to plead ‘not guilty’ and then come back. Each state has been different with that one. In MA you have to see the magistrate first and he’ll determine if you get a court date or not. He could tell I was gonna fight so he just threw it out. It’s just you and the magistrate in MA so you know he’s hedging bets and cutting deals. :lol:

Folks are always in my ear about those two, especially my youngest. But this is simply a little something extra for them to look forward to. They are still (my)children. Besides, books come first.

So, you’re not quite ready for Lil G to go on to the next level yet, huh? I know how that can be. Shoot, between him & Trini – this is the last year for elementary and onto middle school. Wow. Now that I think about it…hmph. I’ve already decided to sign/transfer my two youngest from their current magnet over to Rampello Magnet (they’re actually K-8) for the following schoolyear.

I’m :lol: @ I once wrote an article titled ” I’d Rather Get Mugged Than Get A Traffic Ticket”. Basically I said that getting mugged was faster, cheaper and has no long term repercussions such as increased insurance premiums or loss of my license. If I get mugged, the guy is only going to get $20.00 or $30.00 sometimes less and its over in about 30 seconds. If I get a ticket, it will cost $150.00 to $500.00 or more.

All of that salt while pregnant will get you. Nose spreading, swollen feet/hands and discoloration to those who do not take heed to their physician’s advice.

However, there may be a few others, who simply could not be helped. Drink plenty water and keep plenty cocoa butter, pure olive oil and a good toner on deck – preggo or not. Because I’ve witnessed some folks who have NO excuse (meaning unhealthy, uneven/ twotoned skintone and marks) and no desire to treat nor keep their bodies properly hydrated….AND have the nerve to “don” tasteless and unappealing attire that makes you wonder, if your folk was really ya folk, they would have been real enough to give it to you raw about that “getup” before leaving your house and presenting “it” to the public for all to see and unfortunately witness. This is not a benchmark for beauty lecture, just common sense.

While not having your name on the citation is a techniciality, it will enhance the issue of the license. They get the name for the ticket usually from reading the license.

Anyways, if the license plate on the car is correct that could be enough. That can attach it to the vehicle. Hence some people get boote/impounded for citations issued when they weren’t driving the car but letting someone else drive it.

As far as asking for things for discovery, all you can do is ask. If they say no, you aren’t any worse off than you are now. You may have to do a subpoena-like request. There are form subpoenas that can be found online.
