I got to thinking about how it was way back when "I were a child" and we had no answering machines, no cell phones, no voice mail boxes, no computers, and no way to let someone know you were trying to reach them other than sending a letter or going directly to their house. I think my husband would prefer to live in that type of world. He wants to speak to a human being or not at all. While I admit I really get frustrated by phone tag sometimes and I grumble about too many emails, I could not do business, keep up with my kids, or function without the ability to connect so easily with others. It is truly amazing that I can get a message to Sally in Hawaii or Jesse in Alaska quicker than I can walk next door to borrow some sugar.
Our world is shrinking because of our ability to communicate faster. We are able to build friendships without barrier of distance interfering. We are able to conduct business from remote locations almost as easily as we can from home or the office. It is truly amazing.
Now if I could just get my husband to leave a darn message for people rather than complaining that he can never get in touch with anyone. Any suggestions???
