If you, dear Sean, come up with so many problems. does it surprise you, that I, a newly widowed 86 year old. just cannot cope with everything that is coming my way? I often wonder, is it just old age, that makes me feel like I don’t want to talk to anyone on the phone anymore. There is just too much that is confusing for me. But reading what you, a much younger person are experiencing, I wonder now, is it just my deteriorating mental alertness that makes incapable to exist calmly in this super modern society, or is society as a whole getting ‘too smart’ for a lot of us?
I think, I would just like to reblog your thought provoking post to see, what my followers, and especially my family, have to say to this!
Rocket Science? What for? Couldn’t life be a bit simpler, please!
I’m in the middle of a bureaucratic goose chase with a government department. It’s hair pulling out stuff. I have supplied said department with the exact same information through five different channels and still, somehow, the situation has not been resolved to the bureaucracy’s satisfaction. It’s a hungry machine, devoid of empathy. It’s a Tower of Babel!
I’m not surprised that people vote for politicians who tout less regulation and smaller governments – private enterprise and the free market are the solution for a smoother ride – NOT!
I say this because I also find myself on an insane merry-go-round ride with my telecommunications/energy provider. Ironically, a government website helped me to find this particular provider! We’ve all heard how you have to shop around to get the best deal.
Saying that, have you shopped around to find a better bank deal? I mean you’d have to be a fool…
