Instapundit links to this article about the work/life balance in the age of cell phones and other smart devices. I own a smart phone. It does not own me. If I’m eating dinner with someone else and you call me, you’re likely to get voicemail unless I really want to talk to you. If I’m at a movie theater, I’ll have to call you back. If you don’t like that, I’m sorry, but that’s the way it is. If I’m driving, you’ll be leaving me a message.
Yes, I almost always have my cell phone with me. Just because I have it doesn’t mean I answer it. If you want someone to answer when you call regardless of the circumstances, please feel free to cal someone else.
