Not fast enough

I had to laugh last week when I overheard a conversation in the breakroom between two coworkers. One was at the microwave, complaining that he had to enter the full cook time, rather than hit one button for a preset time.

I laughed when I realized how absurd the thought was. Here was a miraculous invention that could cook food in mere seconds and my friend was griping that he had to wait an additional two seconds. If there ever was a “first world problem” I’m sure this is it.
