OK - When you have sent a text message to someone, how do you reference the past tense of having sent a text? I told someone that "I texted" so and so and was screamed at that NO ONE says "texted" to indicate that one has sent a text. I was told that when a text has been sent you have "text" someone. I was thinking that "to text" was a verb and past tense of that would have been "texted". So am i obtuse and completely not knowing how to say the past tense of "text"? What do you say and why?
