“I hate when people don’t watch where I’m going when I’m walking and texting”

People often walk while texting, but don’t pay attention to where they’re walking. “I hate when people don’t watch where I’m going when I’m walking and I’m tweeting” was posted on Twitter on May 19, 2011. “ I hate when people don’t watch where I’m going when I’m walking and texting” was posted on Twitter on August 24, 2011.

“I hate when you get hit by a car while walking down the street and texting and no one is in the car and it’s parked on the side of the road” is another jocular saying about texting.
