Hello Mrs Little!
Hello Willy! Do you have a few minutes to give me a hand?
Sure I have some time for you.
What can I do for you?
Can you come in and help me out, reading my telephone bill?
Why do you need help with that? You have good eyes.
They’ve put my bill on the Internet and I don’t know how to use it.
I’m sure I can help you with that…
…and I’ll try teach you about the Internet too.
That would be great! Everyone is going onto the Net and they just assume we know.
I hope you enjoy these and I would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.
It seems that many people and organizations are making assumptions about people and technology. They assume that “everyone” has a Cell phone or a Fax machine or a computer and the Internet.
Not everyone has access to every gadget. It isn’t just people who despise change or technology — many people don’t normally have a need for some things. For example not everyone feels a need to be on the Internet and don’t want the added expense. For another example not everyone has a need for a Cell phone — their normal land-line works just fine in their lives.
The only time they miss some forms of technology is when someone makes another assumption that “everybody” has it.
This strip* was published before as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name to “Wheel Tales of Willow City”.
“We’ll Make Cents” is an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a visit.
Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!
