Of late, the number of lifts that ‘talk’ have been increasing. And the result couldn’t possibly be more irritating.
A steady stream of “Doors Opening”, “Doors Closing”, “2nd floor”, “4th floor”, “5th floor” announcements are yet a constant reminder that not all by-products of what is possible via technology are good! I just don’t seem to understand why we need talking lifts. The indicator is good enough. To have a steady stream of announcements going in the background is a bit too much.
If talking lifts were bad, we now have the worst in Talking Airport Waiting Areas. More on that tomorrow.
