Anyone who knows me even slightly can tell you how much I hate technology, particularly when it doesn’t work. Even as I write, I’m on hold with our TV service provider, trying to find out why the replacement remote control I ordered two weeks ago has yet to arrive. This is the fourth phone call I’ve made to the company about this issue, and my blood is just about boiling and I’m ready to pull my hair out. Such a simple task should not require so much time and energy.
I don’t like change, particularly when it comes to technology. I like the screen on my smart phone to always look the same (all the icons should be in the same place, colors should be consistent, etc.). When I replaced our portable home phones a year or two ago, I purchased the same brand, and virtually the same phone, but it’s just different enough to cause me aggravation. I can’t figure out how to access our missed calls, mute the phone, or put a call on hold and accept a new call, like I could with the last set of phones.
