Tonawanda News — I’m all for technology. And I get that etiquette changes and people adapt. But it’s also in place to help communication and smooth social interactions, and gleefully ignoring efforts by someone who either cares for you or simply needs to speak with you because you can’t be bothered to punch a few buttons should be no one’s idea of polite.
So, if I’m calling you these days, I apologize in advance. Because if I get your voicemail, I’m going to leave a message. I’m not even going to think twice about it. And I hope that you’ll bother listening to my message, and even call me back.
If that’s wrong, I don’t particularly want to be right.Jill Keppeler is a writer for the Tonawanda News. She can be reached at email@example.com or 693-1000, ext. 4313.
