Haiku Friday: Revenge of the mod cons

Laptop battery
dies, DVR won't record,
AC blows warm air

What is next? Am I going to be washing clothes in the stream and cooking over an open fire? I need my technology!

We are currently reduced to taping on VHS, of all the prehistoric technologies!

Our washer broke three days ago and I couldn't even wash my stuff in a stream cause it was all locked in the broken washer. I feel your pain.

Oh no, when this happens I just want to duck and run!

Why does it all happen at once? Made for a cute haiku, though. ;)

I was without phone or internet last Friday and I honestly thought I was going to lose my mind. It's crazy how dependent we are on these things.

Nice haiku though!

Oh, that is just no good. All at once? In the summer? No fair!

The loss of technology?! Sounds like a horror film. I wish you well in these very desperate times.

Love the Haiku - but I am a technophobe. I don't have a tumble dryer, microwave or mobile phone, but if my computer dies or blows up my life would end. I would have to resort to a pen and paper, or even a quill & parchment... everything is relative!

Whoa that sucks. If it's any consolation my basement is a retro trip to the 80s with my tube TV, turntable and vinyls.

We also have a 20 year old TV with a VCR in our bedroom. Oh, the inhumanity!

I feel for you! Hopefully it's gotten better.
