Technology and Tell-Tale Traits.

I forgot to pick up my mobile phone when I went out today, and by the time I realised the fact it was too late to go back and fetch it. I thought of all the difficulty and distress that would have been caused if something had gone wrong with the trip, and came up with the three stages of Technological Dependency:

1. Enjoy the novelty.

2. Grow to rely on it.

3. Become enslaved to it.

And on the way out I called at the supermarket. My basket contained:

One bag of porridge oats
One can of kidney beans
One bottle of premium beer

That’s the sort of thing that gets you a reputation.
