John Y’s Musings from the Middle: Technology

jyb_musingsMy cell phone –an ATT Android–has a visual voicemail feature that tells me when I have a new voice mail message.

But wait, there’s more.

The visual voicemail app also, with some voicemails, will delay the notification for several hours. Or even a day.

I know what you are thinking. It must not work right. But I figured out what really must be going on.

This feature, I have to assume, somehow measures the enthusiam of the caller and will delay notifying me of the call accordingly –to the extent the person doesn’t seem eager to talk to me.

I mean, what else could it be? Right? There’s no other reason I can think of for the voicemail to work this way.

Dang. Technology sure is amazing.

Oh, so yeah. When you leave me a voicemail be sure you sound enthusiastic so I will get it right away.


Trying to always find short cuts in life is, without realizing it, like having a full-time second job that pays nothing and that you hope no one ever finds out about. 

The only way to improve on the situation is to quit the second job.
So many things to unsubscribe to; and so little time.
