Love it or Hate it!

Modern technology definitely has its pros and cons. Throught modern technology I was able to enjoy Jillian’s shopping trip to New Jersey with my mother right along with her. They went to get a dress for her to wear to her Bat Mitzvah. Every dress they tried on that they liked they took a picture with Jillian’s cell phone and text messaged the picture to me. I was able to be at work and shop along with them. It was truly enjoyable. Here are the results of the shopping trip. Jillian made out well! I absolutely am indebted to my mother for taking the time to spend with her doing this.

Now for the cons. Matthew stayed home during vacation week to look for a summer job. He went for a haircut, put on nice clothes and went to the mall in search of a store looking for a hard working kid. At each location he was told they don’t take applications in person anymore, he needs to go and fill out an application online. I thought that was aweful. How do we teach our children the right way to dress and act in these situations if they are just told to fill out an application online. How do they get to know the child they are hiring. There are no first impressions, no personal touch. I thought that was terrible to do to a kid looking for his first job. I just don’t understand it.
