I moved. I’m now in another room in the office.

FB can be useful – my 18 year old daughter is currently doing Camp America. I have been trying to synchronize a Skype call since the beginning of June. Last Friday I noticed she had just posted on her wall, so I FB msg-ed her asking if she had time for a chat – and yay! she did (it was 1am her time). Admittedly she is a bit further away than the characeters in the above cartoon….

My dad does it too. If my skype is off he’ll trace me to Facebook. He gets me in the end.

I cannot control FB, if I start in it, I go on looping. But it’s a nice idea to get into it at evenings

Yup it’s evening here. But morning for you.

FB can waste yer time, but I also catch up with what people I love but see seldom are up to. It’s close to being a peeping Tom at times.

We did the same thing on messenger at the previous job I´ve been. Weird, but sometimes it feels more convenient to type out, than talk to the person next to you :)

Sean DSouza August 5, 2011 at 1:53 pm

Specially if the person is grumpy like me.

Hi Sean,
here is another one I’d like to see you do. A young couple walking through a beautiful landscape, holding hands, and each talking on their mobiles.

have a go!
Cheers,

Richard

Talking to each other?

Could be worse. Never had a fight on Facebook yet.

Facebook isn’t the media massage* in our office. Sadly we email or text one another from one room to the next.

*For those of you too young to remember Marshall McLuhan (and that would be all of you) – he wrote (in the late 1960′s) about the media being the message then later changed the title to “The Media is the Massage.” BTW he predicted the World Wide Web about 30 years before it actually happened.

Oh we do that too!

FB, not a bad idea… I have tried Skyping my wife from within the same room but always too much feedback…

hi Sean, congratulations!! I saw myself so clear…like a mirrow!!
Sometimes it is the only way I find I can get the boys (18 & 13) to answer me and communicate! … without getting grumpy at me, for interrupting them!
it is crazy, when you think about it!!

Reply

Sean DSouza August 5, 2011 at 11:33 pm

Crazy for us, not them.

Marlene Hielema August 5, 2011 at 9:19 pm

Love this Sean.

That’s how I communicate with teenagers and young adults! Well, that and texting. It’s the only way to get their attention. Phone calls don’t work.

Sean DSouza August 5, 2011 at 11:34 pm

Makes you wonder what’s next after txt.

Frances Schagen August 5, 2011 at 10:58 pm

For us it’s Skype. D isn’t on FB.
It’s also a private way to chat with kids wandering around.

Michelle Russell August 6, 2011 at 2:28 am

Best one so far, Sean!

It kinda reminds me of the radio commercial about the husband and wife chatting over the cell phone about what to bring home for dinner. Turns out they’re one aisle away from each other in the grocery store. :)

That “is” funny.

Steve Gasser August 6, 2011 at 4:51 am

This is exactly the way conversations happen at my house! Too funny!

Reply

Sean DSouza August 6, 2011 at 8:15 am

Nice to see you, Steve.

Courtney August 7, 2011 at 11:20 am

Substitute Google Chat and that’s so our house! :)

Reply

Sean DSouza August 7, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Ah now it’s battle of which chat to use.

Bonnie August 7, 2011 at 2:44 pm

I thought it was bad when we emailed each other from the kitchen on the 1st floor to my office on the 2nd. But now I have to admit that we sometimes email each other in the same room. Great cartoon!

Kristie McDonald August 7, 2011 at 9:37 pm

Yeah – on a similar note my kids have started video skyping me while i’m working – from their bedrooms to my office downstairs! Sad? LOL

Sean DSouza August 8, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Maybe. Maybe not.

We’re so boring I still use the intercom on the phone, from my office, across the hallway to her “command control” area in the living room.

She always complains when I come out late at night and want to talk. She says, you have an office where you can hide away all day! I don’t! (Go away).

Sean DSouza August 8, 2011 at 12:03 pm

Looks like you need another ‘office’
