I am about to provide you with more evidence that I have arrived — finally! — into the 21st century, that I have joined the techno-communications generation.
I called the Collin County clerk’s office this morning. I told a nice lady on the other end of the line I am a “brand new resident of Collin County.” I said I needed the address of the nearest voting center so I can vote Tuesday in the midterm election.
She asked for my address. Then she told me it’s at Puster Elementary School.
“Do you need the address, or do you want me to give you directions on how to get there?” she asked.
I chuckled. “Oh, no,” I told her. “I have this fancy phone that shows me how to get to anywhere I need to go. I just punch in the name of the school and it guides me there,” I said.
She responded with a chuckle of her own, “Aren’t those phones just great?”
Yes. They are, indeed.
Gosh, I hope I didn’t sound smug.
