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