A Much Needed Addition to the Procastination Tool Kit

Sometimes work is just so unappealing, you need a mind break. While there are many diversion available, one of the newest (and best) additions to the market is Texts from Last Night. Essentially, if you have received a ridiculous text, you just send the operators of Texts from Last Night an email with the a word-for-word transcription as well as the area codes of the sender / respondent. My favorite entries include but are certainly not limited to:

  • (434): why are there goldfish crackers all over my bed?
    (540): you decided you wanted to name them & keep them as pets.
  • (419): just went to get groceries. a cashier said she saw me last night. i guess i carried a broom back from the party and swept the street the whole walk back...and i claimed to be in the cast of wicked
  • (217): What would a frattoo be? Maybe like the Chinese symbol for Keystone Light.

All I can say is that after reading several posts, you realize there are a lot of crazies out there, and maybe it would be fun to be friends with them? Definitely a great way to take a break during the day when cold calling / Excel time have gotten overwhelming.
