In My Day…

What is happening to me? Am I aging too fast? I feel like a grandmother because of what I’m about to say, but I’m going to say it anyway.

Holy crap how lazy are we getting? I see commercials for egg yolks already pre-cracked and in a carton. Eeewww. how hard is it to go tap tap tap, break? The idea of pre-broken eggs just grosses me out.

Then I saw one for this thing you put into your wash that keeps colours from running, so you don’t have to sort your laundry. The only practical purpose I can see for that is if you’re in an apartment with coin-operated laundry machines and you’re too cheap to sort your laundry into separate loads, or maybe if you’re blind and have no idea which clothes are brightly-coloured, but in that case, you have bigger problems to worry about because you could be wearing an orange shirt when you think it’s blue. The rest is purely laziness. “Now I don’t have to sort my laundry. This thing will keep my clothes ok.” I’m waiting for the first lawsuit when it fails.

And then there are these weird self-heating coffee cans. You break something and then these chemicals heat up your coffee on their own. That’s too weird. What is in them? How hard would it be to just, um, make your coffee?

I think I’m done now. All I have to say is at this rate, the future freaks me out.
