Is it just me or has life gotten too complicated? I feel like my husband and I need a technology consultant to come over and analyze our personal technology, and make some recommendations.
Do we have the right cell phone plan?
Why does my computer have a phone line all its own...with its own call notes? And do I have the right Internet provider?
Cable or Satellite?
My husband had to reconfigure our garage door opener because there's a new device that reads your code and then opens your door. He realized this when he discovered the edger and weed whacker were gone.
The TV/VCR/DVD/Satellite remote control situation is completely out of CONTROL!
The water sprinkler's on a timer, the pool's on a timer, but we finally purposely broke the timer on the oven because it buzzed whenever it felt like it.
We have to unplug the smoke detector when we cook...so we eat out.
We got a new built-in microwave and use the old built-in microwave to hold saucepans for storage.
I was charged a $25 late fee because I can't pay my Target bill online because I have a Mac.
With online billpay why don't the check companies realize we need more deposit slips and less checks now?
We changed banks recently because we wanted FREE everything like everyone else was getting. Now, how do I coordinate changing the direct desposit of my payroll check with the direct withdrawal of my house payment?
I suggested we go ahead and get a divorce since we have 2 bank accounts now. It might be easier. Of course, he wants the free one.
There's one little device that makes the rest of my electronic hell worth it...The Toll Tag...God I love that little thing. (That reminds me, I need to call and update the toll tag to the new car, and the toll tag charge to the new debit card. Ahhhhhhhhh!)
