OUT OF CONTROL

Computers are the best thing that ever was invented when they are working well and under our control. When they are not working well and we lose control; computers become the worst thing ever invented. Control is at the heart of everyone wanting to get things their way. I can control if I use butter over margarine but not if I get cancer. I cannot control my kids, my employees or anyone else. I offer incentives to give me an illusion of control and it works for the most part most of the time. It still isn’t control; it is offering what others want or need and if they get a better amount somewhere else the illusion of control is gone again. Did Dagwood and Blondie control their situation to their satisfaction?
