On occasion, well probably a lot more than that but I'm not willing to admit it, I have what I call 'Old Man Rants'. These are rants where I complain about what the kids are doing these days, the fact that movies aren't as good as they used to be, music doesn't have the same meaning as it did 20 years ago and so on.
Here are a few tech faux pas that drive me nuts and that I wish would change:
1. Saying W W W before the website you're sharing with someone. If it ends with .CA, .COM, .TV, DOT ANYTHING!!!! People these days should know you are talking about a website - if they don't, I'm pretty sure they won't be visiting your WWW DOT WEBSITE DOT COM.
2. Mobile devices that are glued to people's hands or ears. Put it away. Some of the worst situations I've seen are when people go to the coffee shop or bank and won't stop talking on their phone. Smart phones have the ability to make people dumber. Engage with society.
3. Voicemail messages. If you leave a personal voicemail message and then have your generic follow up voicemail message, leaving people with more options on what they can do, what was the point of your message? Get rid of the provided one and leave your beautiful voice on the message for people to hear.
