Technology, a blessing and a curse

People become more lazy as the technology approves. They think everything goes automatically. They can’t even switch the lights off from a switch because they’re so used to things being automatic. For example in the building where I live, they can’t close the gate or the doors. I wonder how they manage to open them in the first place. A healthy person should have the strengths to open a door and close it. Not everything is connected to a computer. If something is broken in a department building you should tell the janitor and not wait for things to happen. It seems young people doesn’t get it.

Technology is both a blessing and a curse. It help you but it also makes people lazy. Soon there won’t be a human touch in anything. There won’t be face to face conversations and no one bothers to go outside. You can buy anything online but at the same time it makes you passive. I hate going to the store to buy clothes but I rather go shopping to a place where you can try them on first. Food and clothes are things I don’t want to buy online because I don’t want to buy a pig in a poke. If I can’t find clothes I like in a store, then buying online is a better option.
Then this paying with your mobile is something I would never try. Paying with a debit or credit card is much better. I really hope money will still be around because paying small sums with a card is kind of silly. Technology should be a help but not completely take over a person’s life. When I see young people walking outside with their mobiles in their hands, I just laugh. If you can’t stay away from your phone when you go out, you really have a problem.

People think they can’t be without technology but that’s not entirely true. In the end everybody needs a human touch. When we get older, it gets more important. We can’t always rely on technology but we can rely on ourselves.
