Yeah the 'on-demand' nature of technology extends to the expectation of immediate attention.I have had guys upset because I haven't replied to DMs on say Streamate, Instagram and tt. Next message is "Are you ignoring me?". Very frustrating,
I recall the look of horror on my kid's faces when I told them about the pre-internet era for everyday households, and then the look of suspicion that I was just messing with them when I explained about the early days of dial-up modems, having to unplug the land line phone so you could plug in the modem to get online, and then waiting as a tiny jpeg image slowly appeared line-by-line.
One day, I'll tell them about life before cell phones were created and having B&W TV with no remote. But not yet, they're still in shock recovering from the dial-up internet conversation
