In convenience: Everyone seems hell bent on making fun chores more strenuous
This humorous and sarcastic article mentions that there is just too much of convenience around. It firstly talks about shopping. It describes the process of shopping for fruits and vegetables through an app vs actually going out and buying them by selecting every apple, testing the texture of the tomatoes, giving the bananas a gentle squeeze to making sure you are not being conned. The author questions, how can that pleasure be derived from home delivery? The second example is of a failed attempt at ordering food online. Finally the article concludes that he misses the days of inconvenience. They were so much more convenient.
