Call it progress as we change to a do-it-yourself society.
For example, we carry our own reusable shopping bag to supermarkets, scan items, make credit card payments and bag the groceries. At our bank, we are greeted by a bank officer but after that, you “talk” with a computer and complete your transaction, unless of course you need a teller to make deposits or withdrawals. At gas stations, you can fill up your tank, pay and drive off without speaking to anyone.
So today when J.J. and I went to Lowe’s to have duplicate keys made, we learn to make them ourselves.
Personally, I enjoy the human contact of yesteryears and perhaps that Is one of the reasons why I especially enjoy small rural communities where people still have personal interactions in their daily lives.
