When Technology Fails...

Coca Cola 1Coca Cola 2

Technology right now seems to be changing at the speed of light. New technology is great, fun and even saves us time. People seem to be adapting to it pretty quickly and depending on it. But what happens when it breaks down, fails or crashes?

The answer: We get angry. In the end we are all helpless when it comes to technology. We really have no control over the situation whatsoever.

Sometimes I forget that, it takes witnessing a man at a mall screaming and banging on a new Coca Cola vending machine to wake me up. Listening to him explain to passerby's that he just put his money into this piece of junk - when the vending machine decided suddenly that it didn't want to work anymore. That's when I realize that we are at the mercy of technology. Seeing the vending machine out of commission I think - What else can we do but get angry?


  1. know the frustration been there done that.

  2. yes technology can be so frustrating some times, but all we can do is grin and bear it. but it suxs;(

  3. I loathe technology for that reason. You can not control it and you don't know when it will break down. I agree its great when it works but when it doesn't all hell breaks loose.

  4. The guy calmed down pretty quick - embarrassed and frustrated he left the mall. Then I went up and took a photo of the soda machine.
