With the rise of human progress and invention, we have seen technological advances that our ancestors could only have dreamed of. Modern industry and medicine has benefited greatly, and the technological improvements we have seen have changed the world we live in beyond recognition. The world truly became a better and more advanced place. However, which item of modern technology has won our hearts the world over and has made the most indelible mark on our lives?
The cell phone charger.
That’s right, the cell phone charger tops the list of modern technological baes. We love ’em so much we just wanna carve our names into some trees to show that it’s real. We need them, take them anywhere and completely and totally rely on them.
We sleep beside them, stuff ’em in our pockets, and remain glued to a certain area of the house so that we can ensure our scrolling is powered by their sweet electrical juices.
They calm our nerves and keep us in sync. They ensure we are connected and recharged enough to look for pulled pork recipes at 2 am. They are the modern equivalent of a guardian angel, and we are eternally grateful for all of the things that they do.
