10 Fictional Problems That Could Have Been Solved with a Text Message



Cell phones are pretty great. There is simply no other innovation that has impacted my life as much as the one that allows me to scroll though Instagram while I’m sitting on the toilet. I use my phone for almost everything—answering texts, ignoring texts, getting texts and then forgetting about them for three weeks until it’s too late to respond with any semblance of grace so you just consider the friendship finished.

And if fictional characters had the capacity to text, I’m positive most problems in books—far from dragging on for hundreds upon hundreds of conflict-riddled pages—would last about five seconds.
