My World As I Know It, Ends Today




After resisting company 'policy' for a couple of years, I have given in, folded, acquiesced. Today I will be issued with a new 'device' to replace my little buddy, the cell phone.

Now, while I do understand these things help us keep in touch and up to date, sometimes I feel I don't need to keep in touch or be quite so up to date. I kind of liked the reasoning that I didn't answer your email out of office hours quite simply because I didn't read it until returning to work the next day. I liked the fact that quite honestly if it was life or death urgent, you could press some numbers on YOUR BB and speak to me on MY CELL PHONE about it.

But, alas and alack, I am about to become one of the legion of BB owners who can't seem to go to a meeting, sit and have a coffee, stop and smell the roses, without scrolling and jabbing at these things. Personally I find it exceptionally rude to be in a meeting and not quite BE in a meeting because of distractions like this and I will NOT be taking mine into meetings. I do still plan to sit and sip on a delicious, soothing latte and I will not stop smelling roses - and preferably freesias and white ginger flowers.

Whatever the good of this upgrade may be, I am all too aware that the expectation of what I do in my free time (limited though it is) has quite definitely changed forever.

As a owner of a Blackberry Storm, may I say welcome, and enjoy. There is much to learn, and have fun with them as well.

But as I tell my customers, the off switch is there for a reason, use it now and then, and don't be afraid to leave it at home from time to time, you'll survive without it. No, really, you will ;)
