Cathy by Cathy Guisewite for October 13, 2019
Mom: E-nough! I wrote her a three-page e-mail. She wrote a one-sentence reply. Does she think it's my turn to write back? We spent a day finding, wrapping and shipping a wedding gift. They e-mailed a thank you and 250 wedding photos that we have to download individually. Are we the rude ones if we don't respond? We've sent graduation gifts, birthday gifts, anniversary flowers and thinking-of-you baskets. In return, we've received e-greetings, e-thanks, e-jokes and a link to Harriet's granddaughter's in vitro fertilization blog! Noise: Click! Dad: We understand the new technology... Mom: It's the new people we don't get.
