If You Don’t Really Get Technology, Don’t Worry, Neither Do These People

Not all of us can be as knowledgeable as the technological wizards who run the world now. For a lot of us, figuring out how to connect to wifi on the first try is a personal victory. Things were so much more straightforward when all you needed to know about tech was that if the house phone sounded fuzzy, you were on the internet.

Now, technology runs every little thing in life. Seriously. Ever water fountains are controlled by an app now. If you think technology has gone too far and you have no idea what’s going on anymore, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Attaching A Heart-Shaped Selfie To Every Photo Isn’t That Bad

This man couldn’t figure out how to turn off the feature on his phone that added a heart-shaped selfie to every single photo. To be honest, I don’t even know how he turned that feature on in the first place.

I doubt many people even knew this feature exists, so can we really blame this poor guy?

All I Know Is That Phones Allow Me To Browse Pictures Of Cats Anywhere, Any Time

I thought I knew the basics of how our major pieces of technology work, but after reading this tweet, I’m reevaluating everything I know.

For some reason, in my mind, the internet existed thanks to a bunch of cords plugged into a generator somewhere in the world. But I guess that doesn’t make much sense.

Maybe This Woman Who Photocodied Her Phone Wants To Keep The Recipe Forever

In this woman’s defense, how to screenshot a phone isn’t common sense. It’s different on every type of phone, and it’s one of those phone “secrets.” I was always too embarrassed to ask how to screenshot things, so I had to go on my laptop to Google it.

Continue on to see how a restaurant managed to blame a chicken wing shortage on technology.

You Can’t Blame A Bus For Trying

In hindsight, adding a digital banner to a bus makes a lot of sense because then it can be used for multiple routes. In reality, it’s just one more thing that the bus driver has to deal with.

They’re already driving a large vehicle and dealing with crazy passengers. Do they really need to be a coding expert at the same time?

If Only There Was A Human Cashier To Fix This

Whenever someone warns you that technology is going to take over the world take the moment to remind them who technology’s master is. This automated McDonald’s cashier may be cheap and efficient, but it still needs us.

I may not know what to do to fix this printer, but I know I’m the only one with the power to do it.

This Is Not A Good Enough Reason To Deny Me The Cheese Crust I Ordered

Most of us don’t feel the personal effects of cyber attacks (minus the whole 2016 election thing) but this changes everything. Nothing will get in the way of me and my cheesy stuffed-crust pizza. I’m ready to learn code and fight the internet terrorists in the name of chicken wings.

The next few appliances prove that technology can actually make things more difficult.

Why Do We Need Technology To Pour Water?

I don’t understand what the point of a digital screen is on this refrigerator. They have physical buttons already for the things you need like water, crushed ice, cubed ice, and the fridge light.

Unless this digital screen is going to stream the new season of Queer Eye for me, then we don’t need it.

Oh, And Now We Need To Pay A Subscription Service For It Too

Just when I thought regular water couldn’t get any more extra, someone built a water fountain that requires a subscription service and app to control. No one should have to pay $1.99 each month for chilled and filtered water.

I’m grateful that they at least allowed us technologically-struggling peasants access to warm tap water.

No One Ever Reads The Terms And Conditions Anyways

I honestly can’t think of a reason why an oven would ever need term and conditions to pop up on the screen every time you want to use it. Unless the terms have an accidental death clause that can affect how much life insurance you get when your oven burns the house down.

How Do They Know?

There’s been a lot of talk about privacy and gathering data information lately, and I think we all understand why. It’s almost as if Facebook records your every move and has planted a chip to read your mind.

There’s no reason they should know I was thinking of taking up cross-stitch, but now I have ads for colored embroidery thread everywhere I look.

Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures When The Favorites Bar Gets Filled Up

You can’t really blame this grandma for deciding that writing down her favorite links was easier than figuring out how to add favorites into separate folders.

If anything, her handwritten links have a better chance of lasting the test of time if there’s a Y2K type of disaster. Now we’ll always be able to get to a photo of a butterfly blizzard.

When You Have No Idea How To Change The Wifi Password And You Don’t Want To Forget It

There has to be some sort of correlation between people who cross-stitch and people who can’t figure out how to change the name and password for their wifi. Unless the person who installed the modem changes it for you, you’ll be stuck with a long list of numbers forever.

Anyone with an endless “spam” folder in their e-mail will appreciate the tweet coming up.

So That’s Why I Needed A More Secure Password For My Dominos Account

I always thought that when a website makes you create a more secure password, it’s just because they want to guarantee that I’ll forget I had to add a capital letter and four numbers to my standard, go-to password.

This tweet proves that a more secure password is totally worth it.

If Someone Did This To Me, I’d Probably Burn The Printer

Not to be dramatic, but if someone did this to me, I’d smash my printer with a baseball bat, burn it with fire, then bury it in the backyard. I’m not even concerned about my browser history. Go ahead and see all the cat videos I watch.

I’m more worried about the fact the printer has become self-aware and could make the other household appliances sentient.

99% Of My E-mails Are Promotional

Every single person who has ever bought an item online should deeply resonate with this tweet. I don’t know how promotional e-mails can be so tricky. Even when I click “unsubscribe” they show back up a few months later. There’s no escaping it. I’m stuck receiving e-flyers for the rest of my life.

The woman coming up relied a little too much on technology and it made her take a dangerous turn.

I’d Be More Impressed If He Didn’t Use A Single ‘M’ Word

I feel for this Colin kid. He’s just trying to survive school and he’s been given a keyboard that can’t do its only job.

I’ve actually been in his situation, and it sucks. My “L” key didn’t work for the longest time, and there’s no way to reset or reboot a keyboard. You just have to accept your fate and try to move on.

This Is Like The Time I Typed In ‘Giggle.com’

I’ve cleared my cookies a million times, and my web browser still suggests I go to giggle.com every single time I try to go to Google.

It might be okay if giggle.com was a website with good jokes or cute kids laughing at dogs doing cute things, but it’s just an unknown website that gives me an “error” message.

Amazing In-Flight Entertainment

There’s nothing worse than boarding a trans-Atlantic flight to find out that you got assigned the seat with the screen that doesn’t work.

It looks like you’re stuck watching the screen of the person in front of you while you imagine what the characters are saying. This nine-hour flight is going to be a breeze.

Whoever Smelt It Delt It

Fun fact: the age-old rhyme about farting applies to technology too. This error window that popped up just to tell you there’s no error means there is definitely an error.

Likewise, whoever is the first to notice the laptop won’t turn on is always the one who opened the e-mail with a virus.

This Woman Loves Technology A Little Too Much

Either this woman is a huge fan of The Office and wanted to be just like Michael Scott, or she is way too dependant on technology. I’m going to bet it was the second one because people following their GPS into stupid scenarios is a surprisingly common thing.

If these photos have taught us anything, it’s that avoiding technology isn’t the worst thing.
