Throwing your laptop out the window might be satisfying for a few minutes. Then the realization of all the things you have to do over will slowly sink in. What about all those photos I put on it? I don't have them saved elsewhere because that requires more technology and effort and time. And all those random documents I have on it. Variations of CVs and resumes that I really don't want to have to recreate. I would die of sheer boredom. Then there is the fact that killing off your current technological device just means you'll have to replace it with another one. As much as the old device irritates you at least you know how it works. New devices have all these complicated features that don't work the way that logic would dictate they should. I suppose what I'm really saying is that I hate change more than I hate technology. I could reasonably adopt the saying "change is bad, new is terrifying" as my personal motto.
|Nice little phone minding its own business. Suddenly senses that it is being followed.|
|Heart pounding the phone runs. It trips on a curb and falls. Then it sees its attacker and screams.|
|Incoming call from Hammer de Muerte. A proud moment for a true Luddite.|
|But wait. What is that? The Luddite begins to tremble in fear.|
|Is that a smartphone? Oh God the horror!|
