Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for August 17, 1995
Dad (Calvin's father): It used to be that if a client wanted something done in a week, it was considered a rush job, and he'd be lucky to get it. Now, with modems, faxes, and car phones, everybody wants everything instantly! Improved technology just increases expectations. these machnes don't make life easier--they make life more harassed. Calvin: Six minutes to microwave this?? Who's got that kind of time?! Dad (Calvin's father): If we wanted more leisure, we'd invent machines that do things less efficiently.
