My Very Own Personal Technology Theme

Is "ineptitude."

  • I have a luxury (Gramma) automobile with no remote keyless entry. Not because it doesn't exist for the model, but because I haven't ever bothered to buy the thing.
  • I have a DVD player sitting on top of my television set. It is not connected to my television, nor do I have anything with which to connect it.
  • I have a working television, but no remote. Really. I swear I'm not kidding. (Yes, I know to buy a universal one at Wal-mart.)
  • I have a working cellphone and absolutely no idea how to use the call waiting feature.
  • I'm lucky I know how to use my alarm clock.
  • Everything I know about using the computer has been trial-and-trial-and-error.

I'm sure either my friends (or I) will think of other things to add to this list. Let me know when you think of them!

That's all I got for today.

Cheers!

NOTE: It has come to my attention that this may not be a flattering portrayal of me. I hadn't thought of that! However, I can certainly see where that may have come across. I wish to make this clarification. My "ineptitude" in this case is *entirely* a matter of priorities. Allow me to explain:

  • I have a luxury (Gramma) automobile with no remote keyless entry. Not because it doesn't exist for the model, but because I haven't ever bothered to buy the thing. I just don't have the keyless entry because I don't care about having it. I am perfectly capable of unlocking the door.
  • I have a DVD player sitting on top of my television set. It is not connected to my television, nor do I have anything with which to connect it. I don't care about DVDs, so I don't really care if it's connected or not. If I get geeked up about watching movies, I'm pretty positive I'll be able to purchase the correct connectors, plug that sucker up, and spin some movies!
  • I have a working television, but no remote. Really. I swear I'm not kidding. (Yes, I know to buy a universal one at Wal-mart.) I care less about TV (excepting the West Wing) than I do about movies. Case closed.
  • I have a working cellphone and absolutely no idea how to use the call waiting feature. Which, when you think about it is no real tragedy. I mean, answering the call waiting is kinda rude, anyway. (Excepting if it's your parent calling.)
  • I'm lucky I know how to use my alarm clock. And, yet, I do. I've proven that with 15 years of work experience. I've not been fired for showing up at noon, yet!
  • Everything I know about using the computer has been trial-and-trial-and-error. Which just goes to show what an unbelievably fabulous intuitive learner I am. Hey, I never claimed to be humble.

No worries... I can fix your ineptness.... All you need is a good teacher.... and I happen to have all the free time in the world....

Tasty said...

GeroniMO: silly, silly boy-type-person. First, it's "ineptitude." I looked it up. And second, if you'll read closely, I don't need fixing. :-)

Allie#3ga said...

amen - she needs NO fixing .... but i'm going to give MO the benfit of the doubt on that one ... and say he was just trying to be nice :)

Tasty said...

He may have even been offering free time. Hubba hubba. ;-)

I could live without all of it except the remote. I remember the old days when you had to turn a knob to change the channels, and I call the remote PROGRESS.
