Technology has brought us devices of amazing capabilities, and yet there is one that’s worse today than it was when I was a kid. The telephone. It used to work even when the power went out. It was crystal clear. Both people could speak at the same time. It was great.
It now fits in your pocket, can go everywhere and costs nothing extra to make a call to anywhere in the country. But Millennials hate using telephones.
“We called people on phones and we — I don’t know — we faxed people,” Ms. Plank said, sounding exasperated. “And we had to mail things. And no one really took my opinion into consideration.”
Things only dinosaurs do for $1000, Alex. Why? What is it that makes young people hate talking on the phone? I get convenience of texting emojis, but do you really hate hearing the voices of actual human beings? Does it mean nothing to you to get a full story, rather than snippets that leave everyone clueless as to what they’re talking about, the full story?
This was once an understandable song. Is it incomprehensible today?
Why? And if you want to offer an answer, please give your age so that nobody agesplains what’s going on in young people’s heads. Let them explain for themselves.
