The introduction and proliferation of the Internet brought a ton of good to the world. We are more connected than ever, be it with old friends, new friends or simple acquaintances. It has given spark to conversation and good old controversy. It’s given start-ups, non-profits and other boot-strapping enterprises access to massive resource. Be it money or brains – the little guy can now compete with the big guys. But, for all the good – it has spawned some evil as it relates to work.
One such evil is the absolute ill regard for people’s time. You are now accessible 24/7. And, the hell of it all – you buy in. You answer every email/text/tweet/post/update/etc…in such rapid (rabid) response times that it makes you feel crazy over the top amazing. Boom – done. Check me out – I can answer an email within 4 seconds of it presenting in my inbox. I can anticipate your text and already have my answer queued up to respond back. Or, I can text right over you just like I talk over you in real life. I digress….
Back to the subtle point of: the hell of it all – you buy in. Shrewd people like the guy below, are taking advantage. [I can’t help applauding him for this invention]
Get Some Sleep at The Office So You Don’t Waste Time in Other Places
Check out this product – The OSTRICH PILLOW:
OSTRICH PILLOW is a revolutionary new product [designed] to enable easy power naps anytime, everywhere, [offering] a micro environment in which to take a cozy and comfortable power nap at ease. OSTRICH PILLOW has been designed to allow you to create a little private space within a public one, to relax and unwind. Its soothing, soft interior shelters and isolates your head and hands (mind and body) for a short break, without needing to leave your desk, chair, bench or wherever you may be.
Forgive me, but if I walked by you and this was on your head – I would not be able to turn down the opportunity to mess with you. Maybe a safety concern head slap under the guise of making sure you were alive or my absolute need to see who would actually wear this. Maybe a tap on the front of your OSTRICH PILLOW head all the while I am standing behind you or vice-versa. The point is, I am looking for this kind of head-gear in a hospital, jail or at a Halloween party. Not in the airport, library or god forbid my office.
I have a better idea – save yourself the pain of being picked on, beat up or otherwise played with and go home. Go to bed. Get some rest. And, be alive when you are awake.
Your I can’t wait to see someone out in public wearing one of these Daily Miller,
