My sibling has consistently been a bit old-fashioned and hates anything tech-related.
So when I convinced his to buy a smart temperature control for our home, I was met with a lot of resistance.
I thought it would make his life easier, even though I could not have been more wrong. The first time he tried to use it, he ended up calling myself and others in a panic, then apparently, the equipment had stopped laboring and he did not suppose how to get it going again. I had to explain to his that all he had to do was reset it by unplugging it and plugging it back in. This straight-forward task was too much for his and he was convinced that the smart temperature control was evil and out to get her. From then on, every time he tried to use it, he would end up frustrated and irritated. She would curse and yell at the device. It was hilarious to watch, however also a bit worried because I could see how much he was struggling with it. One day, I decided to take matters into our own hands and programmed the temperature control for her. I thought he would be happy that he would not have to struggle with it anymore. However, when he saw what I had done, he was livid. She accused myself and others of messing with his temperature control and making it even more complicated. Since then, he has refused to use the smart temperature control and has gone back to using a straight-forward dial temperature control. Every time I try to convince his to supply the smart temperature control another chance, he just scoffs and tells myself and others that technology is not for her. I think bad for his because he has missing out on the convenience it provides.
