It’s a sign of the times, I suppose. HOWEVER. I completely forgot to check Facebook. Again.
An inevitable symptom of modern technology….
But still. It’s getting a little out of hand.
This is a step-by-step actual recount of my efforts this morning to check my messages. Now, I realize that as a freelancer, I may have a few extra steps than most…but this is ridiculous:
Two messages. One from co-worker, reminding me that it is Monday and to call her back. Second message is from same co-worker, reminding me that it is Tuesday and imploring me to return this call, or risk having a dozen pizzas anonymously delivered to my home.
annoying, irritating, type a co-worker, I need to check my voicemail at work.
Two messages. First one is fine, second one she garbles her phone number, so I have to wait through all the choices till I can press the option for “message information” to get the correct number.
Two messages here as well. First is from Dad, who’s forgotten the reason for the call, so there’s no hurry to return it. The second is from someone I’ve had trouble reaching, so I’m interested in knowing when this call came in. However, Comcast’s voicemail will not allow you to interrupt your voice messages, so you must patiently wait till the very end to listen for the options (which have recently changed) to press the corresponding number for envelope information…which will, in fact, NOT tell you the time and date that someone called. F*&%-ing Comcast.
I also had one text message, which was from my sister and basically said: “Whts n/o wine w/cgull?”
To which I skillfully replied: “?” Which everyone knows is code for “WTF?”
(She wanted the name of the red wine I’d brought to her house that I believe had a flying goose on the label, but I could be wrong.)
And there you go.
I completely forgot to check Facebook. Again.
