.and one of them is a relative....sigh...

I understand. Just a couple of days ago, my niece was participating in an on-line performance of some sort or another. The whole extended family got a group text message with some info on how to watch.

Come performance time, everyone starts having troubles connecting and having to talk about what they're watching. I'm at work trying to, you know, work.** And my blasted phone is going off twice a minute. Fortunately, we are all using iPhones, so I can quietly drop out of the conversation and don't have to be constantly reminded they're having some fun while I'm working.

** Don't judge - I have a small office where I usually meet with clients. Can't meet, but since it's just me in the office, I can still go there and keep working.
