Man vs machine….Daily Prompt

Machines, appliances, and gadgets sometimes feel like they have their own personalities — from quirky cars to dignified food processors. What’s the most “human” machine you own?

I am trying to think, sorting the different gadgets and appliances I own….whether any of them has any quirks. I could probably say the TV remote has become a bit lazy nowadays. We have to push the same button three to four times to get through the next channel or increase the volume. I’ll have to think about replacing its battery.

Then there is an old CD in my car. Quite used and a bit scratched. It has a habit of fast forwarding some part of the song or just plain skipping some part and going ahead. Naughty one that 😉 .

My dear old food processor, three years old (quite old 😉 ) has a loosened lid which makes it stop suddenly, while I’m kneading flour and cutting vegetables. Have to push the lid to its correct position and then start working again.

Oh and my dear old (not quite) phone goes on a non-cooperation movement sometimes. Whenever I keep it on vibrate for a prolonged period, later I cannot increase the volume while listening music as is my habit while travelling from office to home. Very annoying. Haven’t found a solution to it yet. Most of the time, it ignores my coaxing attempts and reverts back to normal in its own good time 😀 .

That sums up my list of quirky machines for today.
