Home water cooler chat changes with the turn of the decade

gossip at the home water coolerThis decade of the Naughties has seen the face of home water cooler (and not forgetting office water cooler) chat changing dramatically all the time. Gone are the days when we were content enough to have a natter about what we’d seen on the telly last night, or indeed the exciting new programme on the wireless this weekend. Now it’s all, “Ooh, have you seen the Michael Jackson medley guy on YouTube”, and “Can you BELIEVE he had the nerve to Facebook me? The cheek of it!”. The internet has well and truly arrived, some might say is has begun to take over our discussion time, and, in fact, the way in which we discuss is also being reformed. Who knows, over the next ten years, we may see the social use of the office water cooler dying out, as we decide to Twitter our new gossip instead of actually talking to our colleagues face to face; indeed, why not email Mary across the way instead of actually asking in person? Engaging in conversation will make it easier for her to ask if she may steal your last Malteaser.
How is your water cooler holding up in this time of change? Do you still meet there for talk and flirt time, or do you prefer cyberspace for this sort of thing? Let us know, we love hearing from you!
