Consumerist Bliss - Sure...

What’s ironic to me is that, when we buy products and hire services, we are tacitly or even explicitly promised we’ll have a “hassle free” experience. We are indeed charged extra for convenience and for quality. However, the delivery is another matter. We receive products with flaws purposefully designed in for “planned obsolescence”, and services that are designed so that customers serve service-providers instead of the other way around. This is the promise of consumerism. This is the bliss of modern times. Enjoy it, if you can.
