Have you noticed how things have a habit of going wrong just before you replace them with something new?
For example, you decide to replace your car, computer, camera or whatever. The old one, that has has been a reliable and trouble-free servant for many years gets wind of the fact that it is about to be “let go” and gets all emotional about it. Suddenly, things start going wrong at an ever increasing rate of frequency until it becomes a race between the arrival of the new one and the complete failure of the old.
This happens too regularly for it to be just a coincidence. There must be something more mysterious behind it. A man-machine emotional connection that we have hitherto overlooked.
