There's no arguing that our culture is one of convenience. From cars to smartphones to social media ads, it feels like everything is a race to see who can deliver results quicker, faster, and more efficiently. We've come to expect things right now, and companies bend over backwards to make it so.
But when we're forced to wait and no one listens? Things tend to get interesting.
Mild technological inconveniences, for the most part, are usually shrugged off. Phones glitch and laptops occasionally run slower than we want them to. When a problem involves money, however, some people go to great lengths to remedy the situation. One man recently proved that he falls staunchly in the latter category.
Most days, technology is our BFF.
But it does come with its drawbacks.
Most of us let it go. No sense in raising the old blood pressure.
And for those times when we can't let a tech snafu go, looking for help is usually the next step in our game plan.
But sometimes we don't get the help we need, and it's time to resort to more drastic measures.
This tweet represents that extra mile.

The fish incident seems like the work of a parody account. Possibly.It's tough to say, but signs point to the Facebook parody account "Troy Buswell," a joke profile centered around the now-retired, controversial Australian politician. Whoever runs the account put the photo up to poke fun at it and the Buswell. But whether he's the real taper of the fish is up for debate.
Because there's another fish-taper in town.
No matter who actually taped the fish or took the photo, audiences were highly amused.

It brought a community of fishy-humor enthusiasts together.

And there's a practical element that shouldn't be missed here.
