I’ve noticed that there are lots of companies running ads that appeal to people that think they are stretched too thin and have too little time. The commercials are usually for things like online bill pay or other technological marvels that let people shave precious seconds off various tasks. But if you are having trouble finding time to get your bills paid, shouldn’t you take a step back and take a look at your schedule? Of course you should, but people like to feel like martyrs sometimes. So the advertisers flatter them by playing along. Now I don’t have a problem with people choosing demanding careers or enrolling their kids in every extracurricular activity under the sun. They just shouldn’t expect people to feel sorry for them when their choices eat up their time.
