The Devolution of Communication

I have a girlfriend. I know, right? Anyway, back when we were living miles away from each other, our primary methods of communication were phone calls and text messages.

Nowadays, we live together and (obviously) see each other loads. This means the volume of calls and texts to each other has dropped drastically, and now they’re essentially used for status updates of queries about shopping.

The quality (especially my side) of our communications via text has rapidly tanked. Here, for your enjoyment, is a series of screen grabs from my generic fruit-based phone.
