DEAR MISS MANNERS: What is the best way to reply to a text that says just "Call me"?
I find it unspeakably rude and peremptory. If someone needs a call with me, they can call! If they don't want to call at a bad time, they could text "May I call you?" or "When is a good time to talk?"
But summoning me to call them is offensive. I generally ignore these texts rather than responding with what I'm thinking. Or I reply with a time to call me. But people really don't get the message. What's a good reply that lets people know this is rude?
GENTLE READER: "All right, I will."
