Phil: Why Is Everyone So Busy?

Why is everybody so busy? It’s what I hear the most from friends, family, even strangers. “We’ve been so busy lately” has become the standard answer to the question, “How are you?” The statement is often preceded by a heavy sigh. Nobody seems to like being so busy, but they’ve apparently given up trying to change the situation/Phil, A Family Runs Through It. More here.

DFO: Guilty, as charged.

Question: Anyone out there who isn’t busy?
