A Prayer to Geeks

image from

There is that new concept among you, Geeks, to anticipate what I want. As a result, Word changes my presentation without warning, and even if I disable all the "autocorrect" functions, you sneak in and try to do things better for me. Excel has become totally unreliable, it was such a sweet easy program, what have you done?
And Google tells me what I think all day long, finishing my sentences and telling me what I am searching for.
Most people think that the big government is stealing our freedom, it is not true, it is the Big Geeks.

When I was in my 50s, my Mom was still telling me "Don't forget your scarf!" and now in my 70s, I am surrounded by an army of young Geeks who tell me what I think. Let me breathe.
Please, dear Geeks, let me get a little bit of freedom. Freedom takes some time but it is precious to me,  and I am less stupid than you think.

Bill Gates liked to say that if people really didn't like the options available in Word, why didn't they just use Notepad.

I would very much like to think he was saying that in a mocking fashion.
