I LOVE TECHNOLOGY!! I am the type of person that can’t wait to get the newest gadgets and gizmos. I am the one in the family that the kids come to in order to setup all the new equipment. I am the one that deals with technology on a daily basis. I absolutely LOVE it.
The one thing I HATE about it is being the family IT person. I remember one time when mom was having issues at the office and I needed her to type “dir mouse”… I was having a hell of a time explaining to her what I needed her to do. Finally I said, “Mom… type D for dork. Type I for idiot. Type R for retarded. Type M for moron…” Mom was not impressed and I got hollered at.
I’m much more patient with other people on technological things. I have to be – my job depends on that. But with my family – I really need to work on my patience.
I’m always amazed at how dependent we are on technology. If you think about it – just 20 years ago – we’d actually leave the house and be unavailable to talk to someone else till we arrived at our destination. We’d have to read a map to get from point A to point B. Technology has made so much of our life easier and convenient, but it also has made some aspects a lot more challenging.
