Retardation!

Indeed! Having a sqandering memory, I am in the midst of the making of a retard! Yesterday, mom had to go out to collect some documents from the bank, so I was home alone for a couple of hours .Then I got a phone call from a family friend who wanted to speak to my mom directly and instead of passing on a message, asked for mom's number. Now ,my mobile was getting charged upstairs..and whatever I did I just could not remember her number. Infact, to be honest, I never had memorized her number ever cos I always had my cell to look at. And all I could do was ask that lady at the phone to wait.Now that is shamefull.

With electronic storage materials booming around everywhere.. it has become extremely convenient to remember just anything under the sun. I do have this 'things to do' gadget on the right hand side of my laptop which helps me in remembering things! And thanks to my mobile reminders without which I would have become an alzheimer's patient. But I am sure someday these gadgets will be responsible for my already deteriorating memory. I feel so bad when I have to make these gadgets remind me of my day to day stuffs. Though it's really easy and stress free :) But I think it's time we need to stop relying on these and instead trust our brains which will never malfunction except for exceptions. I am going to increase my general knowledge..so am going to head for the Headlines Today for a change! CIAAAAAOOOOOOOO!

Valid point.. But I thought nowadays even technology has become so complex, its imperative you have a minimal level of intelligence to use it... :)

not really pointing towards the techno- techno types!!.. just simple gadgets.. for instance.. I ,most of the times have to use my cell calender to look at the date.
