I’m obsessed with checking my email. I’m positively Pavlovian about it. I hear that little DING! and I simply must know who’s contacted me and why! It’s one of the reasons I bought a Blackberry and later an iPhone. I feel better if I know I’m connected.
You can imagine how I feel when I forget my phone at home; I just know someone is sending me something that I need to know right then and there!
So one day I saw one of those “Check Your Email” machines at a rest stop, and this cartoon was born.
