Technology – Love It or Leave It

When I was growing up in small town America the local convenience store (which was named the Deli, though it was nothing of the sort – it was actually kinda similar to the modern 7-11 or Circle K) had a vending machine that sold soda,  which we called pop and would fight vigorously with you if you didn’t, in glass bottles with non-screw-off tops. It only took change, no bills, and usually only exact change. They still made Coke, Pepsi and RC with real sugar then too, and there was no water in bottles unless it was carbonated and had weird minerals.

Now I use a debit card to buy bottled, filtered water from a machine in the school cafeteria.

I’m old…
