Early Morning Text Messages Bother West Coast Friends
Steve Keeps Forgetting Time Zone Difference; Sends "Insanely Early" Text Messages To West Coast Friends
Heeeelllllllooooo! Talk about inappropriate!
Steve "Colorado Guy" Garufi,
currently on a visit to the East Coast, has continually forgotten about
time zone differences and sent early text messages to friends
living in California and elsewhere on the
This morning was a perfect example. Steve was exercising on an eliptical machine at a gym
at 6:30 a.m. when he sent a text message to break up the monotony. His first text message was sent at 6:43 a.m. EST, which equates to
3:43 a.m. in California. That is super early!
"You woke me up!" wrote one recipient, who added an angry emoticon in her text message. (Left photo below)
Charles Smith sent in a second reply:
"I was up early but not that EARLY! Good thing my phone was in the kitchen and not on my nightstand."

Steve tried to explain his motives and how the controversy came about.
"I usually resort to texting when I'm bored at the gym," explained Steve.
"Steve, Steve, Steve, I already told you once about this," wrote Shana in San Diego, a recipient of an early text message,
"It's a three-hour difference! I am glad you are getting up early to workout though. That's impressive!"
The largest question remains: Will Steve do this again? Will he send more early text messages to friends? Steve dodged the question.
"My big beef is: How about turning your ringer off at night? What is the problem? Or
is it people have stupid and long songs as
their notification when they get a text. I'm sorry, there's something wrong there."
Steve has become active in texting in the past year. He frequently texts any
time he's bored and/or procrastinating on life responsibilities. He also sends text messages during special moments such as when
he is standing on a lofty Colorado peak or a
county high point.
