Sending emails out…Receiving nothing…

In the past two days I have sent out perhaps a half-a-dozen emails to various people, on various subjects, all of which require a reply in a timely fashion.  To me, they are all relevant.  Apparently not to the recipients, none of whom have replied back.

What is wrong with people?  I think that some are genuinely intimidated by the internet, email, and so forth.  I have had one family member tell me that she never checks her email, except on Saturday.  That is more passive-aggressive than anything else, but the others have no excuse.  they are business oriented and need to be written and sent.  Damn it…Get it together!  I don’t all day to sit around and wait…

Yes, yes…I know.  There are other people in the world besides myself, and they have lives of their own, etc, etc…My reaction is a symptom of the technological disease that has infiltrated all of ou lives.  I am happy to not be on Facebook, MySpace, or anything else.  I am happy to go for days without email while traveling.  If folks really need me,they can call…
