I have seen many arguments on both sides of this issue. There are those that claim that technology has set us free from the constraints of a physical workplace.
And there are those, like me, that truly believe that technology has created a universal workplace from which there is NO escape.
I understand that the Genie is already out of the bottle and that we cannot go back to the way that things were before the digital age. I am NOT a Luddite. I was an early adopter of the personal computer and wrote program code for many applications.
But when there is no “OFF” switch, burnout come quickly. There is so much more to life than text messages and Bluetooth calls.
Technology has eroded patience and courtesy. Manners are an anachronism that have served their purpose and outlived their usefulness.
I don’t like the direction in which we are all too eagerly heading.
I do not like it one bit.
