Advancing ourselves out of existence high hopes communications how to save up money fast as a teenager

I am seeing a very disturbing trend in our grocery how to save up money fast as a teenager stores. You have probably seen the trend yourself, the last time you went shopping. That trend is the “self-checkout” stations popping up all over the place. That is only step one of the disturbing trend. I have now seen step two, and I am not at all happy. Some superstores have closed down their express checkouts. Now you have to choose between the self-checkout and potentially standing in a line behind people buying how to save up money fast as a teenager hundreds of dollars in groceries. Walmart hasn’t gone this far yet, but I have noticed that they are gradually decreasing the how to save up money fast as a teenager number of people working the express checkout lane.

Yes, that’s right. The technology that could be used for creating a better how to save up money fast as a teenager life for humanity is being used to make wealthy people how to save up money fast as a teenager richer, while stealing people’s jobs, thereby adding to our already out of hand homeless and how to save up money fast as a teenager jobless population. I’ve been told that this trend will not get rid how to save up money fast as a teenager of jobs as much as it will change them. New technology, I’m told, will create more jobs in the tech industry. People will be needed to create the equipment, people to set them up and make sure that they how to save up money fast as a teenager are functioning, and people to maintain, repair and update them as time goes on. Really? Exactly how many of those jobs will be eventually done how to save up money fast as a teenager by machines as well? Have you thought of that? Please don’t tell me that there will be enough tech jobs how to save up money fast as a teenager to make up for the ones lost to machines, because we all know that isn’t true.

On top of which, what about entry level jobs? Not everyone will be able to learn a tech job. I know that the younger generation is getting more and how to save up money fast as a teenager more tech savvy, but what about the older generations who are currently holding how to save up money fast as a teenager cashier jobs and who are not able to be retrained how to save up money fast as a teenager into a tech job? What happens to them? What about those younger people who don’t fit into the technology mold? Are they doomed to live out their lives unemployed on how to save up money fast as a teenager their parents’ couch? What if their parents lose their jobs to technology?

As kids, we used to learn customer service in our first jobs, at grocery or convenience stores, or at local cafes and fast food places. Those early places were often mom and pop businesses who how to save up money fast as a teenager relied on repeat business, so customer service was driven into their young employees until how to save up money fast as a teenager it was second nature. Now, many business are chain franchises, where the bottom line is how much money you make, how many people you serve, not how you treat your customers. The younger generation is being taught that people don’t matter, money does.

Stores like superstore have been gradually training us to get how to save up money fast as a teenager used to serving ourselves more, and to become less reliant on customer service, first through the “bag your own groceries” method, (but they made that make sense by lowering the prices how to save up money fast as a teenager of their groceries), then by getting us to reuse our grocery bags, (but that also made sense because we were saving the how to save up money fast as a teenager environment). Now they are getting more blatant. They are getting rid of their cashiers and replacing them how to save up money fast as a teenager with self-checkouts, no incentives or reasons, just take it or leave it.

The technology takeover started with machines taking away human beings how to save up money fast as a teenager to talk to when you call a company to ask how to save up money fast as a teenager a question or express a concern. Now it is taking away cashiers at grocery stores. Soon customer service will be nothing more than a piece how to save up money fast as a teenager of ancient history. I want that human touch. I want to feel like I am important enough for how to save up money fast as a teenager you to actually speak to me, greet me, ask me if I found everything I was looking for. I want to feel like I am more important than how to save up money fast as a teenager just the money in my pocket.

That brings me to the next issue I have. Keep in mind that many self-checkouts do not accept cash, so one of their intents is to convert their customers how to save up money fast as a teenager from paying cash to only using plastic. Remember the days when many stores would only accept cash? Well, that is now reversing. Businesses no longer respect cash, they would rather have a piece of plastic, or better yet, an e-transfer straight into their bank accounts. No fuss, no muss, no change to make, less chance of theft, less chance of error. Just swipe your card and money changes hands. Easy. We are being converted to a cashless society, whether we want to be or not.

This isn’t the first time that I have complained that our how to save up money fast as a teenager reliance of technology is getting out of hand. The science fiction writers who, for years, have been warning us of the dangers of technology getting how to save up money fast as a teenager out of hand, never realized the true danger. From 2001, A space odyssey, to the terminator, they all warned us of artificial intelligence rebelling and destroying how to save up money fast as a teenager the human race. They didn’t consider the possibility that the machines won’t have to kill us off, that we will end up so assimilated into our need how to save up money fast as a teenager for them that we will eventually make ourselves obsolete.

We need to step back a second and take a how to save up money fast as a teenager look at the way technology is being integrated into our how to save up money fast as a teenager society, and its end result. Do we really need the latest, greatest newest device? Maybe it’s time for us to stand up and say NO! You can’t keep replacing humans with machines without considering the consequences. We are more important than the bottom line. Technology is meant to serve humanity, not replace it. We want to be here to see the future. So, before dropping that new piece of technology on an unsuspecting how to save up money fast as a teenager public, STOP AND THINK!
