This week has been about my frustrations with technology, it’s a marvellous thing when it works properly. Do you ever have those weeks where you feel like technology is against you ? It’s been one of those weeks for me much to my annoyance. Technology is a double-edged sword, I am so reliant upon it now both for work and for leisure which isn’t always a good thing.
I wanted to place an online food order this week that I could click and collect, I find I save more money doing this than mindlessly putting extra things in my trolley in store. I’ve recently changed the email address I use for shopping online and doing this seems to have created some problems. No matter what I tried I just couldn’t log in, I even spent 20 minutes on the phone to try to sort it out but they were clueless too. I’m now waiting for someone to contact me from their tech department.
I ran into another problem when trying to place an order on a clothing website, I just couldn’t get it to accept a discount code that they had sent me. After emailing for help I was told to pay the extra then they would refund me instead, this involved having to send screen shots and proof of the code. I then tried to log in to another website to be told that my password was incorrect and try as I might I couldn’t get them to send me the link to reset it.
I’m seriously starting to wonder if the universe is trying to stop me spending any money this week. I know these things are all small frustrations in the great scheme of things and technology is definitely something I’m incredibly grateful for. Hopefully my run of bad luck with technology is over now, fingers crossed.
