This entire "texting while driving " argument is inane. The OP is complaining when, if he doesn't like it, he should've driven himself. Simple as that. For someone who got to sit in a back seat and put his feet up while someone else carted his ass back and forth, he has NO room to complain.
In terms of texting and driving, there's a time and a place. It doesn't ALWAYS have to be dangerous nor is it ALWAYS safe.
