We are living in a geek’s paradise. We are so spoiled by our gadgets and the Internet that we expect everything to be automated, digitized, and customized, not to mention responsive to the swipe of a finger.  Technology has rewired our brains, altered our expectations, and, frankly, turned us all into cranks.  How do you know if this has happened to you? Look for the 21 warning signs. Here are just a few:

  • You automatically assume that every screen is a touchscreen, but you have to touch them all just to make absolutely sure. This explains why you’re no longer allowed to enter Best Buy.
  • You waited in line for 24 hours and spent hundreds of dollars for the latest, greatest Phone, yet you spend most of your time using it to simulate flatulence. Still, it could be worse–you might actually be that gassy.
  • Somebody cuts you off in traffic, and you immediately search your steering wheel for the ‘Thumbs-Down’ button. The good news: Even when you’re short on thumbs, you still have two middle fingers.
  • Your longtime neighbors tell you they’re moving, and you’re really upset because now you’ll need to find another open Wi-Fi connection to “borrow.” That, and they usually kept the curtains open at night.
