I aint important enough to be always available.


That's exactly what I keep telling others. I don't get why people need to call each other to say "I just left work, I'll be home in 20 minutes". Before the smartphone, nobody picked up their office phone to call home to say they were on their way. When I was a kid, I've never seen my mother call my dad at work (or vice-versa) unless, I dunno...someone died? And even then, it would've had to be someone close.

Then they their brain tries to label me as some sort of luddite, which really confuses them since, in my circle of friends/family, as I'm the go-to guy for technical problems. They assume I live on Facebook. I've never even had an account on Facebook, and honestly believe we'd all be better off if the whole site was shut down.
