Stop the puck-ing noise!

2 0 0

As if the ringing in my ears from tinnitus isn’t enough, the world is intent on delivering a constant chorus of “puck-ing” alerts.

My phone often goes “puck-ing” at the same time as other people’s phones do the same.

Thankfully, my vehicles remain relatively low tech, so I get a break from all the flipping beeps and puck-ings that appear to be delivered by the minute.

I am in Seattle on business and rented a car. While I was driving to Kent, Wash., my stupid car would give a series of beeps every few minutes.

If you read my column at all, you will know I dislike driver aids that reduce our need to learn to drive properly........
