When you hear your phone ding/beep/whatever you dance like a trained dog to respond


Plain 'ol traditional phones are, by design, supposed to make you do exactly that. That was their only purpose. It rings, you're expected to pick up. With that understanding, out of courtesy, people don't phone others at 2am.

People dancing like trained dogs, as you put it, is their own choosing (and most people make piss-poor choices in that regard). Personally, anything and everything that can have notifications turned off gets exactly that. And if that's not an option, I ain't using it. Frankly I like it better that way: You want to email me at 2am, go right ahead. The only correct expectation is that I won't get to it until I decide to check. Text? I don't even tolerate a phone set on vibrate.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
