Smartphone Strategy

I mentioned to a group of colleagues that I’m addicted to my phone. One colleague (who never met me before and didn’t know any better) immediately got didactic and said I should do it the way she does: turn the phone off the second I get to work and only turn it back on when I get back home.

I said that protecting my work life at the expense of my home life is not what I want to do. My strategy is the exact opposite. The phone is a way to compensate for the unpleasant realities of my work day. My family, however, is barely conscious I have the blasted thing.

It was the strangest suggestion I could have imagined in this situation, especially since we control our own time in our jobs.
