List Rules Vote up the questions you wish your TV, phone, Netflix account, and other technology would quit asking you already.
Modern technology can pretty much do anything for you. From losing weight, to connecting with long-lost friends, we’ve truly hit the life jackpot by being alive in an era that’s basically a science fiction novel. Despite the incredible achievements of modern technology, all of our phones, apps, and computers still can’t seem to figure a few things out. The annoying technology questions on this list are all queries you know you’ve been asked about a million times before by your devices, and they're all ones you're tired of hearing.
Admittedly, annoying technology is a small price to pay for living in an advanced society, but sometimes you just don’t want to be asked if you really want to close a tab. Of course you do! Try not to lose your cool while you peruse this list of annoying things your technology asks you.
We’ve all had those moments, usually during a holiday weekend, when you’re in the middle of binge watching and Netflix asks, “Are you still watching Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated?” Not only is this incredibly embarrassing, it’s also really annoying. We’re human beings, we shouldn’t have to answer to a machine! What does it care if we want to watch TV all day and not count our steps? This existential nightmare is just one of the things awaiting you on this list of the worst questions from your devices.
Vote up the questions you wish your TV, phone, Netflix account, and other technology would quit asking you and feel free to add your personal technological grievances to the list.
