What’s the snag, buddy?
I don’t know, somehow I feel uneasy
It’s technology. It’s meant to assist and make things simpler
That’s worrying me
Good is bad?
Yes! For my birthday yesterday, the kids bought me a cell phone
Not bad! I mean it’s a good thing and many happy returns…..
Thanks, But I got the jitters! It’s a touchscreen or whatever…
Great! You get the latest that’s making the rounds
That’s the whole point!
It struck the daylights out of me!. The computer is foreign to me
But this is a cell phone, you said?
Yes, but it’s just the same. I don’t own a cell phone. So they thought why not get me one.
Aren’t you happy?
Of course, I am!
What’s the hang-up then?
I don’t even know how to send messages
You mean texting?
Yes, whatever you call it. And now this… touchscreen…! I don’t even know where to start! Thanks to technology!
Process notes: There are friends from our generation who refused to be bothered to learn. They are happy to use the fixed line to communicate. The computer is such a fright and they just observe from a safe distance.
