Heeeelllllllooooo! Talk about inappropriate!
Steve "Colorado Guy" Garufi,
currently on a visit to the East Coast, has continually forgotten about
time zone differences and has sent early text messages to friends
living in California and elsewhere on the
This morning was a perfect example. Steve was exercising on an eliptical machine at a gym
at 6:30 a.m. when he sent a text message to break up the monotony. His first text message was sent at 6:43 a.m. EST, which equates to
3:43 a.m. in California. That is insanely early!
"You woke me up!" wrote one recipient, who added an angry emoticon in her text message. (Left photo below)
Charles Smith sent in a second reply:
"I was up early but not that EARLY! Good thing my phone was in the kitchen and not on my nightstand."

Steve tried to explain his motives and how the controversy came about.
"I usually resort to texting when I'm bored at the gym. I get chatty
and it helps time go by. I always get it mixed up that I can call
west coast people later than usual but it's the other way around in the morning." said Steve.
"Steve, Steve, Steve, I already told you," explanied Shana in San Diego,
who received the early text message,
"It is a three hour difference! I am glad you are getting up early to workout though. That's impressive!"
The largest question remains: Will Steve do this again? Will he send inappropriate early text messages to friends? Steve seemed to dodge the question.
"My big beef is: How about turning your ringer off at night? What is the problem?
I'm sorry, there's something wrong there."
Steve has become prolific in his text messaging habits in the past year. He frequently texts any
time he is bored and/or procrastinating on life responsibilities. He also sends text messages during special moments such as when
he is standing on a lofty Colorado peak or a
county high point.
