#RANT Yes, your terms are COD but usually the tech has a piece of paper or an invoice book so we get something for our records. We're not handing over credit card or a cheque with no record. The issue is with your system, not our unwillingness to act logically and responsibly
When you say "shat on my childhood", do you mean your childhood or your rose coloured interpretation of your childhood... cause lots of things I held dear in my "childhood" turned out to be utter crap with maturity.
On a journey such as technological advancement, stopping and considering each path as they occur along the way is reasonable and responsible. The fact we're on a journey does not automatically justify going down every path.
