You Have Been Upgraded

You have been upgraded ….. If like me you shudder every time you see these words on your computer you just know it is not going to be pretty . You know that the computers in their  so called wisdom  keep ” improving ”  the way we compute  really only make things harder !! How long does it then take us to work out how theses dam new ” improvements ”  work exactly ? Takes days sometimes to sort out what they say we needed to  ” improve ” the way we use our computers. Correct me if I am wrong  ( lol I’m not )  but how many times have we then had to  ” upgrade ”  back to the way they were  to be  able to get anything done  ? Each and every time they decide to do this to us , do they ever bother to ask us if we want it  ? Not on your life they don’t they just tell us we need it  and to get on with it  .

It is the same with cars , years ago  the car was an easy to drive , easy to repair thing that helped us all a lot, we could go places and do things  so much easier  and it was fun. Repairing them too was  so much easier  and a lot less expensive , a lot of the time too  we could even do the repairs ourselves  if we wanted to , try doing that today  ! lol good luck. ! Then of course they decided  it all had to be  ” upgraded ”  crap here we go again  , so they added computers and new types of radios  and different wheels , even the engines then got changed  to fit in with all the new  computer software . So now you have cars that may have trouble and it not be the car at all but the dam computing system all cars now have to have . Can you imagine having a problem with the computer and you are miles from anywhere  , and even if you do the whole ” turn it off and then turn it on again ”  IT thing  and it still wont work what then  ? Good luck is all I can say ..

What else do we use every day  that has been  ” upgraded ”  so much that you almost need a science degree to use it  ? How about the way we cook ? Gone are the days when we just had a wood stove and  light that up and  just  threw in more wood as it needed it , now  look at how computerised they have become  , again you almost need a science degree to work out  how to just set the dam thing up before you can even use it  ! Time  has to be set  , how much time ? Do you want it set as a 12 hour clock ? or a 24 hour clock ? Pick the wrong 1 and it is nothing but a pain , me  I much prefer the 12 hour version as then  I don’t have to work out what time  13 or 15 or 16  is, in plain English  a 12 hour  clock just goes to 12 then starts again at 1 and to me that is much easier . Then of course there is the temperature gauge , blimey !! All this before  you can even use the dam thing and if the power goes off or the gas runs out you are pretty much screwed and will not be able to have hot food. ..

Radios ..now there is something that has been  ” upgraded ” so much most people do not even have 1 anymore  , I don’t and  will not be bothering either . They again used to be so easy to use , lol turn  them on ! that was all you needed to listen , that and  pick a station to listen to . Now as the very way we listen to them and the way we watch TV  has been ” upgraded  ” so dam much they as well as all the other things  make it almost compulsory  to have a science degree just to use them. Yes we get it right in the end and learn to use these things  but why oh why do they keep making us do these ” upgrades ” when half the dam time it would have been better left alone  ? The bloke who said  ” if it aint broke don’t  fix it  ”  was spot on the money there  .

Now if they would just stop  ” upgrading ” things and making them worse not better , my guess is that people  would lose a lot of anger out of their lives . Quite often  it is all this so called ” upgraded  ”  stuff that causes the most trouble , and had they been left alone we would all be happier. Let’s face it everything was working very well before some idiot with too much time on his hands , got bored and decided to make us pay for it by forcing us to   ” upgrade ” everything , things that did not need it in any way , he was just bored . Also there is the money angle  he knew he could make a fortune out of it as well. As usual too we all go along like sheep and if we do not they make the things we have now unusable  so we have to do it even if we don’t want to  and  I for 1 don’t like it …

Tell everyone that your 10 years older than you are, then they will think you look really great for your age!…
