Sometimes technology and machines get misused to avoid things and hide mistakesTechnology and machines have invaded our life to the extent of making us dependent on them. They have made life convenient for us but at the same time, they have their limitations. They can malfunction at any time and we cannot question them as to why it happened, and we have to live with it. After all, they are machines and technology is bound to behave erratically at times.
But the fact is that in this machine age many people are smart enough to take unfair advantage of limitations of technology and machines to avoid things, situations and to cover their mistakes. It is sometimes common to see people blaming machine and technology to hide their negligence, failure, mistakes, and failure to do things on time. To add to this at times people also misuse it to avoid things or situations which they do not like.
For example, when the manager asks an employee that why the report was not emailed to him on time an employee sometimes may give an excuse that his email account had a problem just to hide his mistake. Many similar excuses are common like PC was giving problems etc. In daily life sometimes if people give reasons like his phone was not reachable if they want to avoid talking to someone. Nobody can question these excuses as they cannot question technology.
When things were done manually by people themselves without much use of machines and technology it was not possible to give such excuses and people had to make themselves accountable for their mistakes.
Probably one drawback of this technology era is that people sometimes misuse it to avoid things and hide their mistakes.
