I recall seeing a show back in the 90's, I'm thinking Twilight Zone or Outer Limits as there was no continuity to the series or anything, but I cannot find an episode guide that matches.
It takes place in our near future and in it everybody has a phone type device basically built-in to their body. They are "plugged in" all the time to instant messaging, calls and emails.
One day this guy is having a terrible day and decides to turn his off for a little while. I recall his wife losing her mind thinking he was dead because he was offline for like 30 minutes and I was hoping to find this episode as it has started to become somewhat prophetic in this day and age.
Anyway, I don't know if this scene was even a major plot point so I have had zero luck finding this but if anyone out there knows what I'm talking about please let me know.
It might even be the same as this unresolved post: What 80's/90's TV episode has a man escape technology in the countryside, and another hunt him down?
