Dear Rachel Carter,
My boss has just bought these new virtual headsets that are supposed to make our work here in the "office" a lot easier. It's been working really well, and I haven't noticed any problems with the headset itself. However, I've noticed that when I put on my headset, time really seems like it is elapsing. For example, about 4 days ago I had put on my headset at about 2:00 pm and used it for my assignment that my boss had given me at work. I was doing my work for about 30min; but I when I took off my headset I noticed that the clock on my work desk said that it was 6:00pm. Now I know the old saying that says "time flies when your having fun", but I can assure you that I was not working on that assignment for 4 hours! This has become a concern because just yesterday, these kids I "met" showed me this news report stating that the headsets were dangerous and should not be used anymore. Then it said that the news was a scam and that I shouldn't worry about it. I don't know who or what to believe anymore. Should I still use my headset, or get rid of it for good? Please give me some advice.

Dear The concerned employee,
I have noticed that a lot of people are starting to write to me with problems they are having with their headsets and I tell every single one of them the same thing, STOP USING THE HEADSETS! I saw the news report that you say those kids showed you and to give you my opinion, I don't think the report was a scam. My very own brother was also having the same problem you are having. He's be on that headset for about 3 hours, but when I ask him about it he starts getting mad because he feels like I'm over exaggerating because he thinks he's only been on for 40-45min. If I were you, I would stop using the headset and I would get your boss and fellow co-workers to stop using them too. I have a bad feeling about those things and I feel that they are way to dangerous and shouldn't be messed around with.
This device is starting to become a dangerous thing to use. STOP USING HEADSETS!
You lose all track of time when you use the headset
You'll have no idea what just happened, where you are, or what you were doing after you use the new virtual headset
