Bernard Salt has an amusing article in today’s Australian. The bit that drew my attention:
Nettel, of course, stands for Not Enough Time to Enjoy Life … . You know you are a nettel if after the evening meal you and your partner get out your smartphones and co-ordinate the next day’s activities.
So I asked my better half if we were nettels.
“Sort of” came the reply. I suspect that she was drawing the after dinner distinction between using smartphones versus MacBooks. However, she then noted me doing e-mails over my muesli.
“Your a nettel!”
