Pixel 5 Notifications From Hell

Pixel 5 notifications from hell

Today I got a new phone.

A Pixel 5, to be exact — AKA: a little ‘Big Brother’ in my pocket.

I was pretty excited to get it, too.

But then I actually got it.

Now, I’m not saying it’s a bad phone or anything.

It’s actually a great phone — definitely the best I’ve ever had.

There are tons of bells and whistles I haven’t even dived into yet. And the camera — oh to camera! — it doesn’t get any better.

But here’s the thing…

I noticed while I was setting up the phone that I wasn’t getting my email notifications. So I started digging around to see if I could solve the problem.

I played with some settings. Cleared some cache and memory. Disabled and restarted some apps. Even went so far as changing some developer settings, which, based on my experience, I really have no right to do.

And guess what?

No fixes.

Nothing I did seemed to work.

So I started getting a little annoyed.

Irritated, even.

This is a brand new phone, after all.

But then a thought hit me…

Who cares if I’m not getting email notifications? I can still check my email whenever I want. I don’t need a notification stealing my attention the moment a message arrives.

And you know what?

I really don’t.

I don’t need to be distracted every time a message comes through.

It’s never going to be the end of the world if I don’t get my emails RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND.

So I said fuck it and let it be.

I could do with fewer notifications anyway.

And you know what?

No matter how you slice it…

You could do with fewer, too.
