One of the memorable episodes on Sex and the City is when Jack Berger, a fellow writer broke up with Carrie on a post it note. He did not have the courage or nerves to tell her face to face.
None of her girlfriends believed that a person would be so cowardly until they saw the note themselves. How tragically devastating this form of breakup was!
Now, a new version of pusillanimous conduct is on the horizon. A person can say via text messaging or emailing what he / she is not man (or woman) enough to say in person. Everybody does it; even bosses! Sure, I know that there are legitimate reasons to say things technologically. It’s convenient, fast, efficient, financially feasible, timely, and expedient.
Don’t get me wrong. I believe in its uses. I use my iPhone and iPad religiously. I am codependent upon these devices. I just have problems with people who cannot stand behind their words or actions; people who use technology as a cowardly shield. Thus, it is not the technology; it’s the lily-livered person that I defy. They are dangerously sneaky and spineless punks. No worries. That is their problem; not mine. Maybe, I will reveal what I think about them with a text message or on a sticky note!
