Technology Has Created a Monster
I’m not talking about the job site, I’m talking about monster expectations.
My wife was complaining this evening that (according to her) she has to clear our spam catcher (http://onlymyemail.com) first before the email will send.
I scoffed and asked if it was really necessary that email be sent immediately. She looked up from her knitting and without hesitation stated emphatically, “Yes.”
We do expect that now don’t we?
Also funny, watch how people react at work when the e-mail goes down. It’s hilarious! I just consider it an opportunity to concentrate on other tasks, but based on the reaction of others you would think the sky is falling! 🙂
Can you imagine how the Blackberry folks felt? Yikes.
