As consumers are seeking more convenience in their service, I fear that as a civilization, we are completely losing the personal touch.
Many people spend all of their time staring at a laptop, and are too busy to go out shopping or socializing.
We are becoming severely isolated, living off doorstep deliveries and rarely meeting people in person. I am also guilty of this just like all the rest of the population. And then it hit me just the other afternoon that I missed going to the pot shop. The shop has an online order form, and delivery for all cannabis orders over $200, so I get some of the finest prices and convenience. But I totally miss physically going inside the cannabis shop, talking to the budtenders, and seeing what’s available. The following day I drove to the cannabis dispensary for the first time in quite a few months. I recognized none of the people working there, which was unusual because I used to know all the people at the pot shop. They had been bought by an up-to-date corporate owner, who had changed the name of the pot shop and replaced all the workers on top of that. That was disappointing, but it didn’t last long because the remodeled pot shop was much nicer than it used to be. They even had a bargain bin for unusual and irregular cannabis supplies. The prices were pretty sweet, and the selection of premium cannabis strains was stunning, but I was still a little disappointed. The up-to-date employees of the pot shop weren’t very friendly, and none of them seemed to know much about their weed products.
