I am currently embroiled in a fight with a company and it made me think about the fact that we used to discuss business across a table. These days people make decisions over the phone without looking their opponent in the eyes. Negotiations used to be done in person where you could audibly and visually see the other human being that you were dealing with. Now negotiations are done via Twitter or text message.  

I, personally, believe that all of this social media nonsense is a poor replacement for real experience. Please, people, go enjoy the beach, and do not just use it as scenery for your social media post.

Relax. It is OK. Your phone can wait.
