These days, it’s hard not to have a love-hate relationship with technology.

The zillions of gadgets we use are supposed to make our lives easier – and sure, sometimes they do – but they also break for no reason, make us scarily-sedentary, and cause otherwise-responsible people to walk blindly into intersections.

Honestly, it’s no wonder that some people completely despise it.

We’d be all for a digital detox… that is, if we could tear ourselves away from Angry Birds. (Maybe we’ll try it next time there’s a power outage and our batteries die?)

Anyway, if you’re one of those people who just can’t seem to wrap their heads around life in the 21st century, you’re not alone.

Here are 10 things you’ll definitely relate to if you hate (hate, hate) technology.

1. You HATE Kindles and everything they stand for.



When you want to read a book, you’ll hop in the car, head to the bookstore (if there even is one anymore), ask for a recommendation from a person, and buy a paper copy. Because f*ck the ‘zon – that goes for the forest and the tech company. 


2. It takes you 10+ hours to respond to a text.

It might be because you have no idea where your phone is. Or it might be because you refuse to graduate beyond T9 and typing things out takes forever
