Well, I'm certainly glad to hear that so many people have nice enough employers that they can simply turn off their devices when they don't want to be bothered. At my employer we have to ask for special time on weekends if we don't want calls, texts, and emails. If we simply turn off our devices without asking for an outage we'll be written up, and if we do it more than once we could be fired. We're expected to be connected 24x7x365 unless we ask specifically for a blackout time (asking for vacation doesn't count, we're still expected to respond on vacation). It's not a matter of knowing where the off button is, it's a matter of unreasonable employers who think they're the most important people in the universe. I find Great Wolf Lodge to be a good place to go because then I can tell them I need a blackout because I can't take the devices in the pools. I have to book my vacations in places like the North Rim of the Grand Canyon where there's no coverage.
