Spiritual Machines

Machines, appliances, and gadgets sometimes feel like they have their own personalities — from quirky cars to dignified food processors. What’s the most “human” machine you own?

I happen to think most appliances, machines and gadgets have their own personalities once you get to use them for a while. Initially everything is just lifeless but after a few weeks you notice the traits and quirkiness of your devices. Like you computers and your smartphones. Even you washing machine. Our washing machine, bought 8 years ago, is a real bitch. Plus she moves around quite a lot when we use her. And at an angle, always at an angle. I am the one who usually moved her back in place. It’s a small space where we keep her, at one end of the kitchen, so I just go in the gap and push her with my hip and ass.

Hmmm I don’t use that many stuff, I barely watch tv anymore so I wouldn’t notice anything about it but yeah the remote control acts like crazy. And why wouldn’t it when my dad drops it on the floor a dozen times a week? The remote should be going fucking bonkers by now. Atleast mom is more careful about stuff like that. I don’t use a stereo system anymore. My phone is ofcourse a character. I need to replce her as soon as I get some money together cause it is really getting outdated. I want a new phone. And a new laptop! Ugh! Sometime next year I guess. No money now.
