The other day, the ceiling fan in our bedroom stopped working.
The lights still turn on, but the fan no longer spins.
I thought about trying to fix it for a brief moment….even Googled a few things about it. Then, I let my better judgement take over and contacted a buddy of mine who’s an electrician.
I know a lot of people are trying to learn new, techy skills during the ‘Rona, but I ain’t one of them.
I’m fine paying someone who actually knows what they’re doing to fix something like a ceiling fan.
As Murphy’s Law clearly states, I’d give it a shot, get about halfway through before making the problem MUCH worse…only to call my buddy to fix it in the end.
Needless to say, if you’re one of these ambitious humans, here’s a recent survey about what kind of tech skills we’re trying to learn during the pandemic.
Top 5 are:
- How to turn your camera on & off during a video call
- How to set up a group chat on WhatsApp
- How to share a link for a virtual meeting
- How to set up a group video chat
- What Zoom is, and how to use it
After seeing this list, I don’t feel so bad.
