I sort of hate technology. Sure, I sort of love technology too. But, what I hate is the fact that we can never disconnect. By creating a world where we are always “plugged in”, there is never a moment of peace. With smartphones, laptops, I-pads, I-pods, Kindles and so on, there is nowhere left to run and nowhere left to hide.
There are probably just a handful of individuals in the world who are so important, they need to be reachable at all times. What is wrong with the rest of us? With our cellphones in our pockets 24/7, your boss, your mother in law and even your cable provider are able to harass you at any time. And, have you noticed how angry people get if you don’t answer the phone right away? Excuse me for wanting to eat my lunch or take a piss in private! But, if you don’t answer, or don’t call back within five minutes, then the text messages will start coming in. “What are you doing?”, “Why aren’t you answering?”, “Are you ignoring me?” Yes, I am ignoring you because you won’t leave me the hell alone! Call or text a person one time. If they want to get back to you, they will. Otherwise, rent a clue and move on to tormenting the next person. Or better yet, leave the technology at home and go out and enjoy life a little bit.
