Shopping and paying bills online is supposed to save me time, but I feel like a need computer help today in order to track everything down. Who knows, maybe Geeks Mobile USA could help me? Have you ever felt that way? I ordered my husband shirts from Men’s Warehouse so that I could save myself time in selecting them at the store. That has been over 3 weeks ago and I still don’t have his shirts. In order to receive free shipping I had them sent directly to the store and the store still doesn’t have them! I went to the store personally and now am sifting through all my emails in order to find the shipping confirmation so I can continue to hunt down the shirts I have already been charged for.
Since school is almost here, I have also been on the school websites checking dates for Back To School Night and grade level meetings before school begins. Technology is great and yes I am addicted to the internet, but once I get online, it feels like it is a never ending job paying bills, checking dates, finding needed files, paying registration fees for the kids’ sports activities….my list could go on and on.
Do you think life was easier before the internet or are we just learning how to pile in more activities now that we have everything at our fingertips? My internet bill is just as important to me as our water bill and that is sad, but very true. On the days that we have problems with our internet service, you can see a change for the worse in my mood. I feel like my internet provider has just “cut me off and left me hanging.”
Do you feel this way? How many hours a day do you find yourself on the computer? Do you wake up early or in the middle of the night to check your email?
