Working Life in 21st Century America


Ed was issued a crackberry at work yesterday. I am not pleased. The lines between work and home are already blurred enough at our house (not that Ed isn't a devoted father and husband, but his job is demanding). With this newest leash, I mean, device....the lines are all but erased.

Oh Jen, I feel for you. This is the exact reason we don't plan on getting one. I hope you can find a happy medium.

On the bright side, we won't be fighting over the laptop anymore since I can surf the Web on this device. But yeah, as a colleague put it yesterday: if you missed being tethered to something, the BlackBerry rectifies that.

I am so sorry. Todd has no control over checking that stupid little thing. Even on dates! Although now he tries to be more secretive about it.

from the wife of a crackberry user, I feel your pain. I can't tell you how many times I have almost chucked it out the window of a moving car, or into the bushes, or the river.... anywhere that he wouldn't chase after it. but you know that crack is hard to beat. I am pretty sure there would be some chasing going on.
I have a friend whose husband checks it in the middle of the night (he has international offices) and that he texts right back no matter how asleep he is. i hope it doesnt get that bad for you. good luck.
