Quite the Shock

The internet seems to be in absolutely everything in this day and age. The whole concept totally confused me at first, because I watched people interacting with and even talking to their blinky pocket boxes, saw them typing away on different-shaped blinky boxes, and don’t even get me started on the concept of the light switch. At first I thought they’d trapped fairies inside a small globe and trained them to become bioluminescent on command.

Then I read the brochure handed out to us confused elders at the library. There was a section on wifi, and it all made sense. From what I can gather based on my auto electrical knowledge, it makes things go… somehow.

Speaking of which, I’ve been looking for a decent auto electrical servicing. Bentleigh locals, help a pal out. Back in the day, I did my own electrical work, but now I’m all at sea. I simply assumed that cars today were like they used to be, but no. I had a go and thought I’d got the job done. Then there was a series of small explosions and now the car won’t start. Now I’m trying to think of an excuse for the mechanics while thumbing through the brochure to see if there’s a SCRAP of information on how the internet affects cars, and I’m not seeing any.

To be fair, I haven’t made a huge amount of effort to understand this stuff – I’ve been dubious about it for a while. Give me a mechanical device any day – none of this digital claptrap. That said, I still need to find myself a local mechanic. Bentleigh must have one who’s willing to work with this old codger. It’s hard for me to admit that I need a hand with this sort thing, but who knows? Maybe the young ones are onto something. 

I’ve got no idea what it is. Something to do with automatic parking systems.
