Here is another take on Fandango’s FPQ yesterday. If you remember, we talked about whether we’re governed by technology.
One of my regular calls for my charity is to phone somebody to remind them to take their meds.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind doing this. It is 2 seconds of my time and it helps someone, so it is a no-brainer. I’m around anyway.
My point is: think of all the mechanisms that you have for setting a daily reminder. Really obvious stuff. Set something up on your phone, on your computer. Maybe set an alarm on a good old-fashioned alarm clock? Or even just tie a knot in your hankie? I’m sure even I have a half-dozen ways. Simple, huh?
Not for this client. So, they ask someone to call them.
Governed by technology? You must be joking!
