I’m starting to worry about the future. Everywhere you go things are turning into self service, screens are replacing books and actual conversations and you don’t even have to go out anymore, things get delivered to you. But where will it end – will we all end up hermits locked to a computer screen forgetting how to talk to each other?!
Years ago you arrived at the petrol station and an attendant filled you up and checked tyres etc. Now you have to do it all yourself and can pay at the pump on your card so you don’t have to speak to anyone.
You used to go into a shop and read out what you needed and the assistant packed it all for you. Now we have self-service tills at supermarkets, although they never fully work and a shop assistant needs to be on hand to help you but they may sort that out in time
It all reminds me of the film Wall-e where people are cuising around space for years stuck in chairs with screens and getting very large in the process …
Is this the future?
