Okay, I'll admit. I have thought it was sweet when people next to me on the airplane see a picture of our dogs on my computer (they are always my desktop background---more top-billing than Dave!) and comment on it.
But, I try to be cautious about looking at other peoples' computers, knowing that it is their stuff and they haven't invited me to check out their facebook page or read their expense report or whatever else they are working on.
But this morning on my flight from Phoenix to NYC, I made the mistake of glancing over at the computer of the lady sitting next to me. She was obviously creating a Powerpoint presentation, which I thought, "Oh we are working on similar stuff." Au contraire....
I only glanced, I promise, but what I saw was this:
1. Meet and Greet
2. Chlamydia role-play
WHAT????? A Chlamydia role-play? What exactly would constitute such a thing and how does one even sign up for such a training?
I do realize that Stephen Covey had it right when he said, "Seek first to understand, THEN to be understood." I think he also should have told me to mind my own nosy business, but WOWEE!!!
Lesson learned? Probably not. In fact, I am wondering if this might actually make me more prone to peering over peoples' shoulders to see what intriguing work they are working on.
