Telecom Rehab

I wholeheartedly agree with this - bring back the days of phantom meetings and time killed on park benches of an afternoon. The expectation of immediate response to all communications is a tyranny that creates stress and anxiety in the modern worker. People used to communicate by letter and the world seemed to function ok.

Couldn't agree more. Of course the youngsters of today don't know where they are unless they have a mobile permanently irradiating their thoughts. Now when I was a young girl I'd stretch a string with 2 tin can on the end over the road to my friend Fiona's window and we'd talk for hours, well it was shouting really. We knew when to draw the line though, there was no taking the string into school, or into work as we got on in years for that matter.
