I am struggling. As a kid, I grew to with two ways to contact me… a street address and a home phone (and we didnt have an answering machine like the fancy people). There also my CB radio… CQ, CQ…
I did a count just now. There are over 30 ways to contact me. I find I am struggling to keep up. But the issue is not volume. The issue is where things are. At times, I get a message, think, I’ll answer that tomorrow and then I either forget it altogether or where the bloody thing is.
I thought this tech caper was going to make life simpler. Pfft.
