(Background: there’s a shopping mall near me that’s running advertising aimed at women, (offering specials at the women’s shops ) while all the men in the country are sitting in front of the TV watching the football games. The ads are billboards showing a note stuck to the refrigerator , in a woman’s handwriting.
The notes say things like:
“Bob–I hope the game goes into overtime, because I’m off shopping at the mall”.
Or: “Dave–the beer’s in the fridge, and I’m at the mall 'till it’s over”
So I got wondering—who still sticks notes on the 'fridge for their spouse?
A few years ago, people thought it was normal to be out of communication for an hour or two, and didnt worry. But the cell phone has changed the whole psychology of how we stay in contact with our families.
IF you leave the house unexpectedly, do you leave a note for them to find, or do you call your spouse on the cell phone? If you get delayed and won’t be home when expected, do you use your cell from inside the car to tell your spouse you are sitting in a traffic jam on 45th street? Or do you just come home 45 minutes later than usual?
When was the last time you left a note for your spouse?
