    An Open Letter To Those Who Have Their Read Receipts On

    Why?

    Dear people who have their read receipts turned on:

    E!

    W H Y ?

    Are you passionately passive?

    Do you get pleasure out of torturing your loved ones via iMessage?

    Are you a sadistic person trying to play MIND GAMES?

    Or do you just not realize that they're even on?

    BECAUSE WE'RE WELL AWARE OF IT.

    EVERY FUCKING TIME WE TEXT YOU.

    Did you know there's an easier way to let others know you've read their messages?

    Disney

    IT'S CALLED "REPLYING."

    Like, if you don't want to get milkshakes with someone, just reply and let that person FUCKIN' know.

    So here's what we'll do — LISTEN CLOSELY.

    Pull out your phone. Go to "Settings" ---> "Messages" ---> and move that damn nob TO THE LEFT so there's no green showing.

    TO THE FUCKING LEFT.
