They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
I'll admit it, I have a phone addiction. Some may even say I'm a text-a-holic. However, even I (who has mastered the one handed text on my Blackberry pearl) think that things are really getting out of control with the lack of human interaction that our valuable electronic toys inevitably lead to and today, when Amazon announced that they are introducing the option to "shop via text messaging", my fears were confirmed.
Shop VIA text? Really people? Are we that busy that the internet, telephone and snail mail just won't do?
As a professional planner, I just cringe at the thought of couples now attempting to purchase their wedding items on a qwerty keyboard just for the sake of instant gratification. As though the internet, with the zillion vendors and their misleading advertisements, isn't enough. Oh well, change comes with the times...guess I better get ready.
