When you're driving you should be concentrating on driving, that's it, anything else can lead to an accident because your mind is not on the task at hand.

So, no, you shouldn't be pissing about sending texts, if you don't like it, get a bus/train where you can text to your hearts delight.

If you're so f**kin important that you need to text, then get a chauffeur.

No, not that telling.
