Sorry could you repeat that

But Rooney and Trey Songz are the same age

Our bodies are biologically older because of life under STRUCTURAL INEQUALITY.

Scratching and surviving ages your body.

The GOOD news is that melanin keeps us from LOOKING like it.

WE DON’T LOOK LIKE WHAT WE BEEN THROUGH!

We def mentally age faster and we got way worse health due to stress but at least we look good

I want to let people know about this app, especially for those people who suffer from social anxiety where telephone communications might be triggering or uncomfortable.

It’s called “TalkTo” and is available for iOs devices for FREE here and is also available in Google Play for Android devices! Essentially, it allows you to ask businesses questions by sending a text message instead of calling. For businesses that aren’t set up to answer a text message or an email (it will try to send it either way) a TalkTo agent will make the call FOR you, and then will text you back with the company’s response.

I have used this app to make reservations, check for stock, check store hours, and more. Certain businesses will have a higher response time than others but if you ask ahead of time then you won’t have a problem. I sent a restaurant a question this afternoon (see picture) and i had a response within 15 minutes. 

Give it a try!

OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS MEANT FOR ME

WHAT!!! WHAT

For our folks with anxiety (like yours truly)

Lool I’ve been using since day 1. It is great
