In the olden days…
… people would meet face-to-face in sepia-toned markets. They’d be able to exchange stories and cheery words. They’d also be able to recognise each other without the need to inspect each other’s bags of cookies.
Whether we like it or not, the world got a bit more… digital. We can’t all interact face-to-face anymore, but technology is doing its best to try to keep up.
The bottom line is that we’ll always try to treat you with the respect you’d expect from meeting us personally.
Thanks for taking the time to read this…
