Some of the elderly think that if they didn’t have something whenever they were kids, then kids today don’t need it either. I disagree because of this statement. Maybe they are jealous that they didn’t have the technology that we do now such as smartphones, DVR, internet, and ipads! All of this technology has really changed our lives and how we interact with other people. These are just a couple of examples. Another example is from my own life and it happened pretty recently, when I went to stay with my grandparents for some days and discovered what life is compared to with no air conditioning. My grandparents have refused for decades now to get themselves any type of central cooling system. They still have the same furnace they had when my mother was a little girl. I don’t even if I should be calling it a furnace, it’s actually an antique wood burning stove in the corner of the living room. Homemade ductwork leads up within the ceiling, where the heats dispersed through a series of three vents — one air vent inside the master bedroom, and two more air vents on the upstairs bedrooms. That is the extent of their entire heating system! They have no form of cooling system though. When I asked all of them why, they said they didn’t have any air conditioning when they were young and didn’t need it now. I say this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get enjoying AC now!
