During my second year of blogging, I wrote three “Fun with Phobias” posts (here, here, and here). While phobias — extreme or irrational fears or aversions — aren’t fun, I have fun making up names for my own personal fears, like tax-o-phobia, pill-o-phobia, spill-o-phobia, pack-o-phobia, and pantrymoth-o-phobia.
When I read over my previous “Fun with Phobias” posts, I was surprised to see what was missing (and by the way, miss-o-phobia was NOT missing).
Technophobia: The fear of (1) technology, (2) being left behind by accelerating changes to technology, (3) technology-related problems including viruses and confusing updates, and/or (4) technologically-adept people who make you feel stupid.
I had my latest attack of technophobia earlier this morning when I downloaded a free version of Adobe Acrobat, decided that version was probably a scam, and deleted it.
Does anybody else out there suffer from technophobia? Unless you have comment-o-phobia, please let me know, so I can feel less alone.
Let’s see if I took any fun or phobia-related photos yesterday.
I definitely have map-o-phobia (the fear of maps or map-related misunderstandings).
However, I obviously do not have aquaphobia (“a persistent and abnormal fear of water”), because I take so many water-related photos.
I hope you don’t have aquaphobia and can get relief from technophobia, map-o-phobia, or any other phobia with some water music.
Thankfully, I don’t have thank-o-phobia, so I can happily thank all who helped me create another fun-with-phobias post and you — of course! — for your fun visit, here and now.
