I Need A Kid
No, not like that. I have a technical gizmo question and I’ve discovered that the easiest way to find out about any of that sort of stuff is to ask a child. They grew up with this stuff so they know it. Oh, I’m sure I could figure it out myself but why go to all that trouble and aggravation when it’s not necessary?
I want a new cell phone when my plan is up in February. I do very limited things with my phone but I want it to do them very well. I could have done all sorts of research and made my brain hurt by the time I was through. Instead I chatted with the neighbor kid for three minutes and now know everything I need to know.
My laptop came with a wireless feature. I’m sure it’s easy. I just have no idea how it works. Which is why I need a kid. I bet there’s a button or a switch somewhere. I just don’t know where it is. And what do I do once I push it? Sigh. I’m such a moron when it comes to this sort of thing.
Anybody have a kid I can borrow for five minutes?
