Letter: Elder abuse

There is an entire generation who is educated but doesn’t have any knowledge of computers. We’ve never even heard of these annoying machines. Now, a person who doesn’t have a computer is considered out of sync or maybe stupid.

If that’s your thinking let me introduce you to three people who have worked hard, paid taxes, contributed to the community, and yet can’t do business because we don’t use a computer.

My brother bought a new car and tried to register it. He was told he had to make an appointment on the computer. He doesn’t use one. He was hopeless. It took a call to the governor’s office to get a car registered because my brother was unable to make an appointment with the DMV in person.

Now, the same brother tried to open a CD with his bank where he’d been doing business for over 20 years. He was told he couldn’t without e-mail. The three of us have been paying taxes, working and contributing to the community our entire lives.

The answer to our inquiries is to go to www.blah.blah.blah. I consider this elder abuse. The whole world does not operate on computers. Consideration should be given to those of us who are still living, breathing, paying taxes, and contributing to life and the community.
