[How Not to Negotiate]
Spending Too Much Time with Technology
Published: January 11, 2021
When your mind somehow takes an everyday conversation and makes it tech-related, you know you're spending too much technology time.
The other day as I was babysitting for my grandson, he got something caught in his teeth and he wanted a toothbrush to get it out. I gave him a blue toothbrush for him to remove whatever was stuck. When he was done, I rinsed the toothbrush and stuck it in the bathroom’s toothbrush holder.
The following day, my daughter, coming out of the bathroom asked me, "Whose blue toothbrush is that?" I looked at her totally confused. Her comment just didn't register in my mind. “What do you mean?” I said.
She repeated herself, “Whose blue toothbrush is that?”
Scratching my head with a quizzical expression on my face I stared at her trying to connect some dots. She’s now looking at me like I’ve lost my mind.
My ears heard: “Whose Bluetooth brush is that?” So I responded by saying, “I didn't even know there was such a thing.”
Now we’re both standing there staring at each other thinking the other one has totally lost grip. Then it finally dawned on me that she was talking about the blue colored toothbrush and not a brush for cleaning Bluetooth devices.
I’ve really got to cut back on my tech time.
