DEAR DALE: Advice Column

I am worried about technology taking away my job. I’m getting on in years and learning new things is tough.

Well, it looks like someone’s afraid of the “Terminator” scenario, huh? But fret not, my friend! You just need to embrace the machines and show them who’s boss. And if that doesn’t work, just use a hammer! Kidding, kidding, I’m a life coach AND an appliance repairman, remember? I have a much better solution for you – teach those machines who’s boss by making them fetch your coffee and donuts. And if they still misbehave, just give them a stern talking to – trust me, I’ve seen machines break down in tears after a good old-fashioned lecture. In all seriousness though, learning new things might be tough, but you’ve got this! You’re like a fine wine – you only get better with age. And if all else fails, you can always resort to your trusty hammer. Kidding, kidding! (But seriously, keep the hammer nearby just in case.)
