I really hate being the youngest member of the family.
It is a lot of pressure when you are supposed to be the human who can figure out all modern issues for everyone in the family tree.
I feel like my kin look to me to resolve all of their technological issues for them. They cannot be bothered to open a browser and do a quick internet search for themselves. Instead, every time they run into trouble my family comes barking after me looking for answers. This is especially difficult when I have no idea what they’re talking about. For instance, my grandma has been complaining about her central heating, cooling, and ventilation system for the past 10 years. I have never known a single thing about indoor air temperature control or HVAC systems. However, because modern air Temperature control units often utilize pieces of modern computers, she thinks that I should be able to repair, diagnose, and resolve her HVAC issues. The truth is, I have no idea how air conditioning machines or thermostats work. Yet, I find myself tasked with the job I was helping my grandma purchase a new cooling system for her home. I don’t know what I’m looking for but the internet is helping me with these air condition questions. I know one thing for certain… I’m going to get the least technologically advanced air conditioning system that I can possibly find. Maybe, that way my Grandma will actually be able to program and utilize the air conditioning units without calling me at 6 a.m. everyday.
