What does your phone look at when you are talking?

What is the microwave looking at all day long? What does the printer see? What is your toothbrush looking at? What does your phone see when it's with you? What does your hairdryer see when you blow your hair? What does your blender look at when you make a smoothy? I stumbled upon this and thought what if my gadgets could think. Would my hair iron allow me my not so dexterous hands to use it or would the electronic credit card repulse at my extravagance!!?? Share your rendezvous with your personal objects?

I wonder if my mirror has harsher opinions of me than I do for myself!

Hi dear! Quite an interesting post! Our Microwave waits for some snacks/dishes to come in bowl or a plate so that it could re-heat those dishes/snacks or if something is required to be cooked like cottage cheese, rice or any pulse, it could cook it. I think microwave feels satisfied and contended when it makes us available our cooked/reheated dishes. Printer says – Pl. do not give command for printing too many pages at a time, please go slow and step by step, if you give multiple commands, I get confused. Toothbrush says – Please wash me before you insert me into your mouth because I keep getting dirty day in and day out and also wash and rinse me after you are done with. Phone says – Please keep the volume at a moderate level, so that others should not feel disturbed. Your hair drier will not budge or for that matter credit card won’t warn you if you exceed your limit of expenses. These are very humble things………..LOL!

Hi Mimpi! Your imaginative idea is quite innovative. Hope in future, technology will enter into such an advanced stage that our Credit card will tell us, where we should limit ourselves. Hair drier will also utter that it is getting too hot to be used. Microwave over will remind in robotic voice when our food/dishes get ready in it.

Good idea! I think, they already do that, in a different way though.

There are normally two things that my phone sees, the inside of shirt pocket and the inside of my ears. Now the pocket is close to my heart, so i hope the phone would think kindly enough. But when it's near my ear i'm sure it's got some tricks it would want to try. Now the latptop is invariably lying on my lap and staring at my face at is now. I'm sure it's having a good laugh at all the expressions it get's to see. And i'm sure the car has a lot to say, mostly unkind things, for all the weather, pot holes...

I really pity the vehicles. They are the smartest! Coming to my laptop, he keeps staring at my goggling eyes trying to figure out how many browsers I am going to explore..

And do you surprise the browser at times ? The TV and the remote get the brunt of my fingers and irritations. They must be saying " Oh no here he comes again!"

if these inanimate objects could ,i am sure my clothes iron would yell at me and tell me to give my dresses to laundry for ironing as mostly i burn a dupatta(i try to save money by ironing myself but the opposite happens).

Hi Mimpi aunty, They are all against me and have made an alliance so that I make no excessive use of them. The printer sees me worthless as I have not changed the cartridges for a long time. Tooth brush is loking at when it would be replaced with a new one. lol Just do not ask have turned my arch enemy and I am to save my soul somehow.

I have a speical affinity for three gadgets of mine.One is the computer, which is Goddess Sarawathi for me.THe second one is my microwave oven and the third one is my mixie, a sweet faithful one which stayed with me for 15 years, working silently and smoothly wihtout much noise. 1]Computer-, I remove my slippers,pray[ that it must not get moody and hang and crash] and open the computer everyday. 2. Microwave oven would pitch in at the time of hurried need. 3. The mixie is my sweet little thing and I was very sad parting with it recently because it did not work and there was an exchange offer.When I took it to the shop it started working.But, because there is an exchange offer and this was the second instance thta the mixie had started giving me some small trouble[even w while I write this i feel guilty because it was a very minor thing was set right by itself.] i exchanged it for a new one [of the same brand].I felt I was being unfaithful to it .But, 15 years is a fair period and I consoled myself that I exchanged it only because it had started giving some minor troubles.

Fifteen years is indeed a good time to develop togetherness. I get attached to my belongings and feel hard to part but then life must go on and my mom feels we need to chage with time. I wish I could have the world to accommodate my stuffs forever for mostly, I have to part with them just because of space.

My microwave is feeling lonely all day and waits to see my face every evening. My printer says he is too tired and is asking for some rest. My toothbrush is feeling very lonely and wants company . My phone says my friends have forgotten me and do not call me so often. My blender wants to know when I will be making a smoothie next......My credit card is forgotton in the cupboard and I am sure must be missing me a lot. My hair iron must also be missing me.

So, see how lonely you have made them all! But, I would rather blame the kind of sweetness that you bore within you. Moments seems ages. Love yaa.

As a whole, this is something I've never been overly sure about to be honest and the only thing I DO know, is that each and every one of them has probably seen me naked! I've often wondered how my expiring credit cards feel too/ Do they get depressed when they realise they're no lponger of use and about to be replaced? Will they miss that soothing machine swipe they've come to know for so long? Will the automatic teller machines miss them or even know that they're gone???

They definitely develop some kinda fondness James. That's the law of attraction.

The only objects in my home that have all-seeing eyes are the stuffed animals, unless you count houseplants, but they are living things, so that is different. I think...

Now THIS is a scary discussion! I don't want to even think about what my toothbrush or blow dryer see! If my gadgets could see or think, I think I'd have to get rid of them immediately! Maybe I watch too much SciFi but I've seen one too many movies about machines coming to life or artificial intelligence overtaking humanity. Actually, I believe there was a Twilight Zone episode about a man's gadgets coming to live and they ended up killing him. No, not for me! If I saw eyeballs peeking at me from inside my blow dryer or the microwave straining to see what I'm doing, I'd be so outta there!

You see, this is why people should not be allowed to have personal things. For example I would be happy to use everyday another bath sponge, if everytime the "new" one was prior used by certain 18-35 year old girls ... Be sure I'll learn sponge language in no time ! Kitchen tools plus vacuum-cleaner or flat-iron would let me know how skilled housewife is the girl, the phone will share to me to whom she spoke and what, hairbrush if she had her hair painted or is natural color and so on .. The only thing I won't allow to be changeable is my .. drawers. They may disclose some dimensions I would preffer to be secret/surprise ...

You better not do that wmraul! BTW, sponge language sounds intriguing. Are you going for it!?

That is an interesting idea...I thought of my beloved laptop first of all, thank goodness it can’t talk! It has seen me laugh, cry and has experienced my wrath on many occasions. I wonder if it found my hysteria amusing...When it was giving me grief...I wonder if it was trying to tell me, “It’s not me, it’s my software!” It has also seen my joy when I have received emails from my loved ones and the pleasure on my face as I MyLot but I’m still glad it can’t tell anybody what it witnesses every day!
