Relationship

Everyone wants to enter relationships. Your phone, your car, and your jeans.

Only you won’t to play.

In ancient days, you’d have a nodding acquaintance with the ne'er-do-well who ran the phone booth, were friendly with your neighbourhood mechanic, and regarded your tailor as a true artist.

Those good old days won’t come back. And, honestly, you don’t miss them much. Those ‘relationships’ were quite unimportant to you.

This would be perfectly obvious to any child. Yet CRM gurus refuse to see it. They keep insisting that lonely humanity must now bond with the plastic card. One wonders why.

PS: What would you say to a person of the opposite sex who offered you a relationship even before getting properly acquainted?
