High tech not worth the aggravation

High-tech

Not worth the aggravation

I keep trying to retire from the issues of our times, but stuff happens that pulls me back in.

A friend of mine is a serious computer person. He convinced me a few years ago to put my ad for affordable housing in a website called Craig’s List, and he said the ad, in order to be effective, should include my phone number. Eventually I agreed to do that.

It resulted in me getting a lot of crank calls, kids mostly, day and night. I had to unplug my phone when I went to sleep. Now it’s a few years later. I don’t put my phone number in ads to find affordable housing any more.
