I'm getting on a bit now, I know, and it has to be said that getting older is better than not getting older.
I knew it was coming. Old age. I've known for some time. And I expected a few changes and difficulties. But not things like 'Internet Banking'.
I didn't expect that access to the Internet would become a must. Or that banks would come to resemble amusement arcades inside, with screens and lights flashing at you from every angle.
Or that cashiers would be replaced by slot machines.
But all this can be avoided by logging on, of course. That is, when you can log on !
Maybe it wasn't safe before when money actually existed and wasn't just a number in a computer somewhere, but is it any safer now ?
I suspect that the trials and tribulations of learning how to use things like 'Internet Banking' has finished off a few older folk.
We've already survived a lot of change in our lives and I'm sure we'll survive a lot more if we grit our teeth and apply ourselves to the problems ahead with patience and acceptance. Just as we've done so many many times before.
