WTF?

You know that ONE person that not only THINKS he is a “Tech Savvy” dude, (not quite “Computer Geekish”) and in a few, just a few technology arenas, he IS a Matador, like in Photoshop or Social Media. In the majority of the various technologies, he’s really not even a novice, (I hate to use the words “Idiot” or “Buffoon”, because I’m speaking of myself.

I learned something new today that I should have known ten or fifteen years ago? I just finished setting up my new iPhone13 this morning. Nothing much has changed in all those years as far as “Tapping” on a few buttons and LO AND BEHOLD, I’ve made the text size BOLDER so I can read the stuff I type and receive, and everything ON my screen is BOLDER and easier to read!

Had I known that amazing technology ten to fifteen years ago, I wouldn’t have been complaining every time I got the newest technology cellphone, ”Ya, these phones are great, but I wish that someday, they would make the “Type/Font” size larger, bolder, so I can read it easier”.

Funny thing about all this, I’m thinking about the various conversations over the years when the general subject of cellphones came up. I guess everyone that has heard me complain over the years about this “Type/Font” size issue, add up to maybe 100 people…..ALL of them were “Idiots” or “Buffoons”? Otherwise, had any of them been “Tech Savvy”, they would have told me the extremely simple steps of making the “Type/FONT” on my cellphone easier to read. My educated guess is that 80 out of the 100 people or so, WAS just as ignorant as I was.

Another funny observation. Out of those hundred or so people that have heard me ask the type/font size question, over the years, many of them were not friends, they were just in the group or crowd of people trying to get a word in edgewise.

I’m a pretty good judge of a stranger’s character even if they don’t speak, just from observing them, looking at their demeanor, and their eyes, so I can safely say that at least 50% of that 20% of them were assholes because they KNEW, and didn’t tell me the

aforementioned simple procedure to change shit on my phone. The other 50% of the 20% of them really WANTED to tell this old fart, this not so techie buffoon that I am, the simplicity of changing the aforementioned “Text/Font” size, BUT, they couldn’t get a word in edgewise.

Both of my adult children have “Smart” phones and I’ve never asked them either. Hahaha! Since 90% of my creative writing is written on my phone, I DO admit that I can read everything on my phone now with great ease and I’m ecstatic that my 73-years-young eyesight will have a much easier time writing.Hahaha!

P. S. The tiny little speaker on my new iPhone13 is like night and day different/better than my old iPhone.

P. S. S. The new phone’s battery is lasting ten times longer than my old phone.

P. S. S. S. This strain I’m smoking tonight plus a few glasses of a fine California Merlot has given me an incredible amount of patience with myself, so, I figure that’s why I was able to play around with my phone for a bit and “Discover” the simple procedure for making the fucking text easier to read.
