GOING PAPERLESS

July 2, 2014 at 7:20 pm 1 comment

As I have mentioned many times in the past, we writers are observers and along with the observations, hopefully, goes a little thought. Along this line, there are times I find our society makes little sense, or should I say elements profess aspirations that they themselves don’t adhere to.

What sparked this piece is a bill I recently received that strongly suggested I ‘go paperless’. I have yet to ‘go paperless’ and strongly hesitate to do so because of all the hacking in the news. Sites guaranteeing they are safe, all of a suddenly find they are not. Or some loyal employee loses his or her laptop along with the vital information for millions of customers.

But what really has me confused about ‘going paperless’ is that the same company that suggests I do this also fills my mailbox with offers to purchase increased service or the opportunity to bundle service I don’t desire. And even though I fail to reply, which to me would indicate a lack of interest, the offers continue to come.

Am I the only one that finds this activity ludicrous?

I shake my head not knowing if it’s in disbelief or sadness, irony or anger.

    This reminded me of quote from one hacker…who said ‘there are two types of companies…those that have been hacked and those who haven’t discovered it yet.’
