Uncomprehending in my old age

March 26, 2010

I’ve been trying to contact a person for a couple of days; just in town, no office number.  I only have a long-distance cell phone number and an email address.  The email messaging has resulted in sort of tag situation.  No mutual time for an exchange involving the sound of human voices seems to be available.

This morning, trying to be cutting edge, I decided to call the cell phone number.  I got an answering-message advising me that if I wanted to get ahold of this person right away I should “text or email,” as those communications were responded to immediately.  Otherwise I could leave a voice-mail message and my call would be returned at a later time.

I’d be amused, but I have this nagging feeling that I’m missing something — like the factory has come out with new standards and I didn’t get the memo.

    The train has left the station without us …………….. and it ain’t coming back.

    I like my computer. I like my basic cell phone (in it’s proper context). The rest of the technology – high tech phones, camera phones, surfing phones, texting, Twitter – “crack for the media addicted” all leave me cold.
