Stupid technology

No comments

At first I thought I was going to write about this girl who rode up the elevator with me: she smelled like a dead zebra. But I think she was retarded or had a disease or something, so I guess I won’t.

One of the dumbest things ever: walkie talkie cell phones. Why in the world would you buy a phone that has this, and then why would you actually use such a stupid feature? The purpose of a cell phone is (or should be) to have private phone calls with the convenience of portability. These walkie talkie phones pretty much kill the “private” part, and also add the factor of making you look like a moron to anyone who sees or hears you. I walked past this kid on the hallway this morning who was using one of these monstrosities (apparently some people think this “feature” is worth having a bigger phone), practically yelling into the thing and hearing the customary scratchy semi-response. And don’t get me started on that “walkie talkie beep.” You know what I’m talking about.

I really don’t get the benefits of using these walkie talkie phones. Why not just call each other on the actual phone? It will be better quality, you won’t be overheard, and most of all, you won’t look like a jackass to everyone around you.

I’m sitting in the library on a Sunday night, working on some M343 (database marketing, super fun) homework. I’m directly across from one of the laser printers in the lab (Indigo, if you’re that curious), and for the last 5 or so minutes have been cracking up to myself at someone else’s misfortune.

There’s this guy, kind of short and stocky, dreadlocks, sandals, etc, and he must be having the worst night ever. I think he’s having problems printing something, as he’s sitting right near the printer with the most pissed off face I’ve ever seen. He was, for a while, leaning over the machine, as if that would help. Then some other people came up to get their printouts, forcing him to sit back on a little table and look even more pissed off. Actually he also looks like he’s going to cry.

Now he’s back at his computer (which is right behind me), and I think he’s having problems still. When his last thing didn’t print right, for the second time I saw, he crumpled it up and huffed back to his desk. I’m sorry, but this is one of the funniest things I have ever seen! Oh, and now he’s back at the printer, looking at a printout intently. Hahahahahahahaha.
