If I get another generic SMS wishing me season’s greetings, I think I’ll explode.

You know what I’m talking about: “Hodne lasky, zdravi a stesti v novem roce preji Bla Bla Bla…” I could handle that kind of message coming from an anonymous corporation nobody gave a hoot about, but from close friends?

Why bother with a message that’s been said ten thousand times before?

UPDATED 25 Dec 2003 11:48AM: A friend shared with me one of the better SMSes he got yesterday, which said, “You’ve been good this year. No stealing, lying, cheating, tunneling, fraud or violence. Now you know why you don’t have any presents – Ježíšek.”
