In a modern world like ours where most of us have become highly dependent on technology, it is always possible to experience some stressful conditions regarding its use which can definitely stress us out. It may be a good thing to have technology to help us, but sometimes it can throw us into some catastrophic scenarios that can catch us off guard.
Using a rice cooker
Everyone is getting ready for dinner and you are very excited to cook sweet ham with a nice dessert to follow. Now, when it’s all set, you excitedly carry your plate to get your rice from the rice cooker only to find out your rice isn’t done. Power cord plugged in fine but you forgot to click the “on” button to make the machine start cooking. Now, dinner is 20 minutes late and everyone is hungry! You end up serving your baked potatoes on the dinner table instead while feeling guilty after seeing the hungry stares of your children and husband sitting at the dinner table.
Scan Barcodes with Your Mobile App
You seem confident enough to use your mobile app’s barcode reader to scan an unpriced book from a bookstore. You are now ready to pay from the cashier only to find out that you are under $100 in cash because your mobile barcode reader failed to provide the correct price. Now you realize that it is still reliable to ask the seller instead of relying on technology.
Submit online forms
Of course, you can always fill out as many online forms as you like when using the autofill feature in your web browser. It’s faster and more convenient. But it’s not fun anymore when you’re filling out long online forms for a long time when you suddenly click on a lock (you don’t even know what key it is) and you lose everything and the page is refreshed to the new one, letting you lose all the minutes. your hard work in seconds. Now, that’s a bummer.
Where’s my charger?
Mobile devices are useless if you don’t have a charger to recharge them. After you almost ransacked your room looking for it, finally after everything was tossed around, you found it only to realize that one of the power cords was cut and no longer working. Well, at least you can rearrange your room back to normal even if you don’t really intend to clean it up.
The 3G connection is disappointing
You’ve been cramming work on documents on your mobile device to beat your deadlines and to keep away from your boss who keeps sending text reminders every minute or so and missing your phone calls too when you’re stuck in traffic on your way to work. Finally you hit the period button on your phone keypad and it’s done! Your document is ready to be sent but you cannot activate the 3G connection. Where is the smile on your face now?
Lost your mobile data
Yes! You are very excited to download the latest and more advanced OS upgrade on your mobile device. Over your excitement, you excitedly flashed a program update only to realize that you forgot to back up your phone data and you lost it in exchange for the upgrade you now have on your phone. Now, you are wondering if the latest OS on your phone has the ability to restore it back without a backup?
Lost your laptop
You have worked for months to complete that research paper. Now you are ready to print it for the final draft. The thing is, your laptop gets stolen while at a coffee shop and all your files are gone! The idea of writing a manuscript instead of keeping a record of your research work now seems more appealing.
