My mother bought me a microwave oven recently. I couldn’t believe it – like me, she was never very keen on modern technology and there she was, buying me a microwave. I live on my own in a one-bedroomed flat and it just about fits into the corner of my tiny kitchen. I have to admit, it’s extremely handy, particularly as I don’t have a great deal of time to cook when I get home from work. I virtually depend on it now.
Like most people we have our fair share of appliances. I couldn’t imagine living without a freezer or a washing machine; and who hasn’t got a cooker or a fridge nowadays? | know people had to cope without these things 40 or 50 years ago, but the world was a different place then, wasn’t it? Everything’s so much faster now, and in some families men and women work just as many hours as each other away from home. We couldn’t do that and bring up children without the support of all these labour-saving devices.
First of all, of course, we got a PC, partly because it’s so useful for work, but also, I suppose, because everyone else seemed to have one. That was fine for a couple of years, but then the kids took it over with their computer games, so we got ourselves a laptop for our own exclusive use. It doesn’t take up much room, and being portable we can use it in any part of the house. After that, we just couldn’t help ourselves every time a new piece of technology came out; a palm top or personal organizer, a digital video camera, a video mobile phone – we just had to have it. And the more things we buy, of course, the more we want.
We’re a bit too old for all this technology. A friend of ours says we should be on the Internet but I can’t see why, and to be honest I’d be too scared to use it. It’s all too fast for me. In the old days everything used to be so much more simple and people seemed to spend a lot more time chatting to each other. That’s one of the things I miss in this technological world.
