I have become a bit of a technology junkie. Obviously in my job we use and promote technology every day. However, the last couple of years my interest, and let's face it, my dependency on technical gadgets has increased.
Most of the time these new toys and advancements improve my life... but there are those times I am reminded of their imperfections as well. It's really not the fault of modern technology that I have become so accustomed to remote entry to automobiles that I periodically attempt to use the "car clicker" to open my front door when returning home (oh...come on, tell me you've never done that before!).
I'm proud to say I have yet to try and open the car door with the garage door opener.
Then there is my frustration with my BFF the GPS! I fondly refer to this device as Betsy. Unfortunately even in best friend relationships things sometimes get a little heated. In fact, Betsy and I haven't spoke in over a week since she took me on a misguided tour of the Ozarks that resulted in an extra 2-1/2 hour drive time and the demise of two large rodents on an insane country back road.
It's all good! In the meantime - Email me! Facebook me! Tweet me! Text me! Or just simply enjoy the "funnies" below and enjoy your Friday!

There was an engineer, manager and programmer driving down a steep mountain road.
The brakes failed and the car careened down the road out of control.
Half way down the driver managed to stop the car by running it against the embankment, narrowly avoiding going over a cliff.
They all got out, shaken by their narrow escape from death, but otherwise unharmed.
The manager said, "To fix this problem we need to organize a committee, have meetings, and through a process of continuous improvement, develop a solution."
The engineer said, "No, that would take too long, and besides that method never worked before. I have my trusty pen knife here and will take apart the brake system, isolate the problem and correct it."
The programmer said, "I think you're both wrong! I think we should all push the car back up the hill and see if it happens again."
