Lives Made Easier? Really?
WHY?????? Coz the phone has been ringing non-stop for the last 2 hours. WHY AGAIN! Because some nerd simply can’t understand that if I am not picking the phone then:
- I am busy and can’t attend the call OR
- I don’t want to talk to him.
Other day there was this fellow who kept calling again n again while I was on a call. Okay you are a senior but there are things that I can’t leave at the drop of a hat or at your very first ring.
Well, the point I am trying to make is that technology has made our lives easy I agree but with each right comes a responsibility which people simply refuse to take. Just because I own a cell phone doesn’t mean that I am obliged to take it everywhere with me, even to the loo and pick their calls every time.
Just because I have a smart phone doesn’t mean I have to have data facility on it and remain in touch 24 X 7 through instant chat services or keep checking their Facebook status and pics and comment IMMEDIATELY. Infact I may choose to ignore that picture of you in pajamas and not comment at all.
But no, they simply can’t leave me alone.
Reach home dead tired and you are supposed to set the table. WHY?? Coz the food has to be warmed in the microwave and it’s no task at all. So even if you have ended ruining your finger tips using a key board all day or your legs are so achy that you can pick an axe and chop them off to get rid of the pain. BUT you only have to touch a few buttons for warming the food in microwave then why are you cribbing.
GIMME A BREAK!!!!! Puhlleezzzzzzzzzzz.
These are just a few examples but doesn’t this happen to most of us. When on a Sunday morning you want to sleep till late but some smart chap will keep calling you till you get up and then ask innocently ‘did I wake you up?’ Of course you moron. But on face you will say, ‘its ok, I was anyways about to get up. (Maybe in like 2 hrs or 3……..)
Please, please, please. If you are suffering like me than take a stand and tell all such nerds that you don’t care what they think but enough is enough.
If you are the kind who thinks that it’s your birth right to have your way every time with everyone at any cost just because technology has made it easier for you to reach them or made a task easier. Be sensible and responsible.
And always remember, even with fancy gadgets at our disposal, it’s mostly us women who have to operate these gadgets (microwaves, washing machines, etc) to make life easier for our other halves!!!!!
