Techno Tantrum

Technology leopard crawled into my life when I wasn’t paying attention. It’s not the gadgets themselves that I have a problem with, it’s the re-charging of the damned things and all those cords/leads.

Wires trail Medusa style from every available electrical socket in the house, cellphones, i-pods, battery charger, electric toothbrush, electric shaver, to name but a few. Even in the garage, tools sit happily on the work bench charging their little cotton cells.

Then there is the constant search for the holy (scuse the pun) two pin adaptor, despite the fact that I have purchased millions of the damn things. Being technically challenged at the best of times, it is enough to send me whimpering off into a corner to eat my body weight in chocolate.

Happily the weekend is here at last and I am off to re-charge my batteries and there is not a lead in sight………….just plug that bottle of Zesty White straight into my mouth!


  1. Hi Supagran! And welcome to the Bunch! Congrats on your maiden post.

    Your house sounds much like mine – cords, cables, wires all over the place. And that irritating search for the elusive 2-pin adaptor! Even though I have an entire kitchen drawer dedicated to plugs and adaptors of all sorts, they never seem to be there when I need one.

  2. Hello there SUPERGRAN! Yes my house is the same, sucking power from the grid!

  3. Welcome!!!

    I just had my house rewired *brag brag*

  4. Thanks for the welcome Greg, still finding my way here.

    • You take all the time you need Supa. Zimmer-speed is fine by us 🙂
