[Day 809] The problem with not being on Facebook

I have recently deactivated my Facebook because I found it distracting. The problem with not being on Facebook is that people don’t believe you’re not on Facebook. Today, a new friend asked if he could add me on Facebook. I said I wasn’t on Facebook, and he gave me the disappointed look that says: “Sure, if you don’t want to be my friend on Facebook, just say so.” Sad.

Also, the most peculiar thing happened to me on the street today. I was walking to my Uber when a car on the other side of the street, still running in the middle of the lane, rolled down its window and the driver shouted something at me. I was like: “What?” She said: “What time is it?” I told her the time and she thanked me. It felt so old school. I can’t remember the last time somebody asked me for the time, because we always seem to be looking at a digital screen or another all the time. Does she not have a phone? A Fitbit? How about the clock in her car? And why must she need to know the time while driving in the middle of the street?
