I can’t believe I had to write this sentence, but I did. I know it is the most cliché of excuses, but I think it is a true statement. This sentence sums up how technology has made life easier for some people and harder for others. For the less tech savvy, it is the most convenient way to stay connected online to be able to check your email, Facebook, and Twitter, and to do all of the other things that you love to do.
This is another cliché that can be true. If you have a phone, people tend to rely on it to be the first thing in your life to check in with. I have come across plenty of people who get a phone in the first few minutes of meeting me and always check it. I don’t mind, but I can’t help but think that someone who wants to be more connected with you can really lose that “first” status.
You could actually lose the status for a while by relying on your phone, as there are lots of ways it could disappear from your life within the first few minutes of meeting you. I would suggest that you check your phone every once in a while, so that you have a record of your appointments, but I would also suggest that you don’t rely on it to be your first point of contact. Not only is that a status, but it can be a major distraction.
For example, you could take a taxi to work, but then forget about that cab the day you get there. Or when you don’t have a car and you see someone you know walking down the road, you could call them and ask them to take you to work. You could also try calling the number on your phone and saying, “Hey, let me pick you up at your house. It’s just a quick ride to work.
The problem is that you can end up being on your phone for longer than you want, because if you call the taxi or the person you know, it’s a whole other event. In the context of that sentence, it sounds like you’re asking them to take you to work, but you’re actually asking them to take you to your home.
Now this is a huge problem, but it may be easier to see it in the context of the sentence: you could say “Hey, let me pick you up at your house, or come in and say hi. Your house is a short drive from the office, and we don’t get into those things often enough.
You know what would be easier to say? Hey, let me pick you up at our house, because that sounds more normal.
Let me pick you up at your house or come in and say hi, is an acceptable sentence. But let me go to your house is not an acceptable sentence. And that’s because it’s a sentence that takes us outside the real world. The difference is that the “let me pick you up” sentence is one that requires us to be in the real world. It’s something we can do.
And that is why the let me pick you up sentence is something we should do, because it demands we are in the real world. We don’t want to be in the real world. We want to be in the world where we can be a person and not be a person. We want to be a person who is in the real world.
We are a technology, and a technology should be a person. We can be a person in our technology, but we should not be a person in our technology. That’s the reason why we should be in the real world.
