Technology screws me every time my boss uses facebook to contact me asking me to do extra hours or come in early the next day! Im expected to be on call 24/7 and check my texts and emails on my phone regularly even when on vacation. 

On a funnier side, my husband had to take his personal laptop to work for a presentation and when he opened it up infront of everyone there were bikini shots from our vacation as his background, cringe!

This didn’t happen to me, but to a friend of mine.

He was working with a difficult client and his boss asked him about it, and he called the client an asshole (or something to that effect) in the email, not realizing the client was CCd on the email. Client contacts his boss and he gets fired. He’s still looking for a job actually. Technology can really get you in trouble at work.

I have a different take on this, since wedding planning is on my mind right now 😛

IMO, I think technology really screws us all, especially at things like planning a wedding. Yeah, it’s great for getting inspiration, but I think it’s a double edged sword. I feel like weddings are a competition now. People are going into debt so they could get their pinterest wedding, and the wedding industry seems to be getting crazier and crazier (people booking out 2 years+ in advanced, etc). 

I was too young 10-20 years ago to know how wedding planning was, but I feel like it was likely much different from today and less competitive. I’m curious to hear from other, older brides what their thoughts are.

I was with my mom and she was driving, but I gave her my debit to Tap at Timmie’s. I don’t know what about this tapping concept confused her, but she legit tapped it (for 0.03423 seconds) and wondered why it wouldn’t work. She was also tapping it the same way people used to old school swipe so the reader is nowhere near the card. The guy at the window just started at her lol. She eventually got it, though.
