If you’re sending me an IM, email, tweet, Facebook message or a text from your smart phone, evidence shows that you have access to the Internet. You know what else is on the Internet? GOOGLE! It’s this wonderful thing called a search engine. You can type in a question, any question in the world and it will give you an answer. Can you believe that? Isn’t it amazing what technology can do nowadays? Oh, wait. You’ve heard of Google? Then why did you just IM me asking who sings the “Oh sometimes I get a good feeling” song? It’s Flo Rida and you know how I know that? I just Googled it!
Google is awesome. I love Google. I use Google for just about everything. I use Google Mail, Google Chat, Google Images, Google Maps, Google Reader, Google Voice and even YouTube, which is now owned by Google. Google is an amazing thing that we all have access to. So, why are you so afraid to use it? It’s free! Did you not realize it was free? Oh, you did. Well it’s super fast too. It only takes seconds to find out when the Oscars air or how to spell quinoa. I know, because I just Googled both of those things and it literally took me three seconds. You know it’s unlimited, right? No one is going to cut you off for Googling too much. Oh, you knew that too. Then seriously what’s the holdup?
When you ask me questions that you can easily find answers to via Google I find it insulting. Insulting to both my time and your intelligence. By asking me to do your Googling you are saying either that your time is more valuable than mine or that you are too incompetent to type your question into a Google search bar. Most of the time it takes you longer to ask the question than it would to look it up yourself, which is just silly. It’s even worse when it comes in the form of a Tweet or Facebook Status. Do you realize how many people you are broadcasting this question to? If you’re watching the Grammy’s and don’t know who Paul McCartney is, look it up! Don’t tweet about it. He’s a Beatle and you’re lazy.
I am done answering your ridiculous questions. I am NOT your Google. Look it up, here’s the link www.google.com!
