Techno Troubles

I love technology. I do! I really do. Except on those days when everything goes horribly wrong. Well, maybe not horribly, but it’s frustrating when the technology doesn’t work and I  waste time.

Case in point: Monday.
  • My car won’t “find” my phone so I can’t  make a hands-free call.
  • Once the car finally “finds” my phone, the cheerful female voice informs me the “phonebook” is empty. Empty?
  • Walked into the classroom to find a new phone system installed—complete with high-tech phone. Great! Except, there’s  no User Manual—I might read it–uummmm who am I kidding? Because of the upgrade, important extensions were changed. Now I have zero clue how to get messages AND I don’t know how to record a greeting AND passwords haven’t been assigned  to access the voice mailbox. ( ACK! Another password to add to my list—see yesterday’s post)
  • Printer gets jammed.
  • Computer won’t “load.” No icons. Just blue empty screen. Once. Twice. Three times. Ahhh—there it goes. I have icons!
  • Can’t figure out the digital recorder I need to use today. There’s a wheelie thingy, and a mode button and a whole row of functions I can’t figure out.
  • Phone has no bars. (Ten years ago, no one would have known what that statement meant—now you’re all thinking—“Yep, no bars, you’re in a dead zone.”
  • My iPad is demanding a new email password.
  • The connector from digital recorder to computer doesn’t work.recorder
  • My school computer won’t “read’ the memory card.
  • Online form won’t download correctly.
  • Keep getting errors on an upload.
  • I can’t remember which flash drive I put all the stuff I need for today’s work.

I love technology. I love technology. I love technology.

I’ve had worse TechnoTrouble days. We all have. What’s yours?
