Stepping out on the proverbial limb I would venture to say that “the only thing permanent thing in this world, is change” and sadly you have no choice about it. Pardon my French but that kind of sucks.
As I remember things, we always had a choice in the matter. Things in general used to be more cut and dried in my world, black n white, yes and no, we could make a choice and we did not have to do it right now.
We had time to consider our choices in life, we had the opportunity to separate the wheat from the chaff. We had endless decisions. makes or models, variety, more than just one or two.
We could freely choose our path make our own decisions.
Unless you were dealing with your Mother that is. Free Choice does not exist in the world of a mother and in my case, it never happened. I don’t know how many times in my now begotten youth I heard the expression, “You don’t have a choice in the matter Sonny, I am your mother, and YOU WILL DO THIS. Eat those vegetables or you will go to bed hungry … No desert for you. If you do not cut your little sister down right now Mister, I will bust your A**!”
Ah, kind of brings a tear to your eye, doesn’t it?
Choices. But these days, it seems that we have very little control or choice in the simple tasks of day to day living. We are forced to subscribe to TV services, phone packages, and computer routing and they want to “bundle us” and shove it down our throat.
Much like Dancin With The Stars … I tire of it.
Recently my telephone server, Verizon, arbitrarily changed my voice mail. Now I am forced to listen to some automated computer generated broad tell me the telephone number of the people that called, when they called, the date of the call and all this other garbage.
ALL OF IT BEFORE THE ACTUAL MESSAGE.
Most of it redundant information that is clearly displayed on the phone itself. Her voice irritates me, and I want my old voice mail back. Nope not gonna happen, that dog aint gonna hunt as my friend Billy Ray Littler would say. It is now my unfortunate lot in life to submit to this. I have to continue to pay them to abuse me.
Which is something I did not choose when I took out the contract.
The thing that irks me about it, is that they didn’t ask me, they did not give me a choice. They just told me to reset everything (an everything that was working just fine for me at the time) and go about my business.
WordPress changed their format, and I have to deal with this each time I come on here. The Auto Companies are no longer building it for you. Instead, you have to pick from several packages in order to get your car or truck.
