And You Wonder Why I Am Not E-Mailing You part 1

Does the whole world need hearing aids
Or am I just that Dumb
I was trying to get hooked to the internet
But I was sure something was wrong
"I've got you signed up.
Now just hang up the phone
And redial the technicians
Just follow their instructions and you're on."
So I hang up the phone
Go to the computer room
And since it isn't wireless 
I check out the phone jack.
Whoa, something isn't right
There is no cord to the phone jack
And thus none to the computer
By heck.
I call up the tech and he says
"Don't worry about a thing
That's my job to connect you 
To the phone line."
"But" I try to say
"You don't understand I'm not connected to the phone line."
"That's my job," said he
"Just follow my directions and you will soon be."
"But I think I need help."
"That's why I'm here" said he
"I'll connect you if you 
Just follow my lead."
So I shut up and he walks me through the steps,
"Just hang up the phone 
And push START
And you will be on your very own."

    So true. I just want to add they always say, "It's easy!" Somehow, it never it. I got a good chuckle out of this one. Thank you for the day brightener and for your kind words regarding my poetry. Have a good day! Glad to have you back at The Soup! Karen

    Technology changes every day. I have so many gadgets and doo-dads I don't even try to fool with them. Luckily for me, I have teens that can take care of all that. Thanks for sharing. Milt
