If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
Back at the turn of the Century, my boss told me I would have to wear a pager. I said no problem, $160 a week. What?? I said I need a pay raise of $160 a week. What the hell for?? Because I know you are going to page me after hours, and the $160 will cover my pain and suffering at a cheap $4 an hour. He said go to hell.I walked away and went to work for another contractor. Who promptly told me I would have to wear a pager - argh!Anyway, I can't see anyone signing up for a pager voluntarily, and this is what a tweet is all about. Even social media is nothing but mostly snarky tweets. It's a communist conspiracy of dumbing us down to lollipop lickers...
ah, they tried that with me.Once I had an answering machine and it slew giants of "Bother me" after work."Didn't you get my message" were soon translated. "You don't actually pay any attention to your machine do you?"
@ beep beep beep: Yup. There was a time when I had to wear a pager... then a cell phone. A company-issued (and paid for) cell phone isn't bad.@Curt: I wonder if they still make answering machines. Not many people even have land-lines any longer... the last time I had a land-line was in 1999.

Ah, but there IS some good stuff there.
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
