As a woman of a certain age, I’m not exactly ”all over” technology! It was only in recent years that I learned to text – must to the amusement of my husband – and friends laughed at me when I thought the trendy term, ”romcom”, was a computer which could be taken anywhere………..
However, with the years, comes the appreciation of good manners and good old fashioned respect – so I was a little upset in the office this week when the machines seemed to be ”answering back!”‘
First, the printer, which was being particularly awkward, began to bring up a sign, ”improper shutdown” – and simply refused to print! I talked nicely to it, noted the comments it was flashing at me in a very aggressive way and turned it off, gently and with care, then back on again, thanking it in advance for it’s service!
Phew! We got printout!
BUT I then went to transact a credit card payment and the cheeky machine said, ”transact it bitch”! I was horrified – till I put my specs on and realised it said, Transacting Batch……..
Seems with age comes loss of vision and common sense. Perhaps machines will take over the world!
