Currently my favorite is the ability to know when I have recieved a text message even when my phone is on silent on in my bag. I generally know I have a message within 10 minutes of getting it. Of course, some might say that this is because I am constantly checking the time on my phone since I no longer believe in watches, but I saw whatever.
Today's texts were about Mark Burhle pitching a perfect game. See, my friends know I am a White Sox fan and they also know that when a person works in an office baseball games aren't priority #1 (most likely due to the lake of televisions with cable access).
At first I was super excited when I heard about it and went and told all my fellow Sox fans in the office. But then I started thinking - "How many other people can claim to have a perfect day at their job?"
My guess: Not many.
I know I have had some pretty good days at my jobs throughout the years, but I don't think I have ever had a perfect one. Aside from baseball I don't think I know of any profession that can ever be labeled "perfect". There is always something that is going to happen during the day to make you awesome day a little less awesome.
But I guess that is why they call it work.
