Conveniency and Technology is Ruining the Generations to Come.
Businesses and technology has been taking over the world of humans! Maybe that opening line was a bit extreme; however, I only speak the truth on here, as many of you know. I like wandering around stores whenever I’m off and I’m in the store doing other shopping. The thing that never ceases to amaze me when I go strolling through stores is how rapidly technology is progressing and turning simple tasks we do at home into something even simpler. Many products ranging from slicers, peelers, to coffee makers, and the list just have no end. Many businesses have also many things easier for youngsters these days. Great examples of this are already washed and peeled vegetables, prepped meals, sandwiches, and etc.
Yes, everyone wants the easy way through life and claim they have no time to sit down and enjoy a good meal or cook, or have the time to even prep ingredients for someone else to cook for them. I would say I have to blame technology for this because it also plays a major role from how many people spend countless hours on their smartphones and tablets. They would rather just find something fast and convenient to nibble on than cook an actual meal. I don’t understand what could be so important for them to not be able to get up from the couch or the laptop and just actually prep their food than buy what is already prepped for them.
Many would probably claim there aren’t enough hours in a day to get everything they want to get finished to be completed. How many hours do you all actually manage to squeeze in because you’ve been too preoccupied doing things? How much time during the day do you actually make it an effort to prep and cook a meal after a long day at work? Why would you pay that extra dollar or so for a small tray of peeled carrots or potatoes or something? How long are those going to last? It’ll be gone in one meal. What people see nowadays is not the price but how many convenient options there are at grocery stores.
By the way of how things are going now, by the time most of the 80’s babies reach forty and have children of their own. Their children won’t even have to cook at all or do any of the hard work that their parents had to do to make a meal. Teens nowadays don’t even have to cook actually given how much of a vast variety there is of prepped foods in grocery stores available.
On the more technical side of how things are going, I feel we’ve been so reliant on the use of technology such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, and even TV. What happened to the joyful feeling of holding an actual book in our hands instead of a tablet? What happened to talking to your parents or enjoying a good conversation with someone you enjoy the company with? I had once went out without my phone for three days because it wouldn’t charge and even with my laptop at my fingertips. I was about to break mentally and emotionally without my phone. It just made me feel so disconnected from everyone and everything. Don’t say you guys never experienced that! We are too reliant indeed, won’t you agree?
Robots are going to take over the world! I just had to say that for fun! We’ve seen so many robotic or mecha movies and TV series that we all strongly believe robots will one day take over the most basic tasks of humans. I’ve seen in the news recently that Japan has launched its first humanoid robot in a department and its been getting very high acknowledgement and praise. It’s frightening but also adorable and fascinating! Go Japan!
