Man Live-Tweets 11-Hour Struggle To Make Tea, Everyone’s Brains Explode

Simple pleasures and technology just dont mix well sometimes.

You know, like trying to fall asleep or make a cup of tea without getting distracted by your buzzing phone.

Of course, there are people out there who want their lives to become more streamlined and convenient with the help of technology.

Upgrades You Make When You’re Adulting

Take Mark Rittman, for example, whos a data specialist from the UK living in a smart home.

For most British people, tea is serious business. Rittman is no different.

But one simple part of his routine became an 11-hour technology crisis when heattempted to make tea with his new WiFi kettle.

It wasnt nearly as easy as hed thought it would be.

Of course, Rittman HAD to share his frustration with the rest of the internet.

I couldnt imagine doing this much work for a cup of coffee in the morning.

I enjoy the dumb two-step process of boiling water and brewing coffee in a French press. Wouldnt technology take all the fun out of it?!

To each his own, I guess.


Rittman continued to have issues with his WiFi kettle. He was in too deep to give up.


His fans on Twitter could not handle this endless saga.


A lot of people were thinking the same thing:

At this point, I would have returned the damn WiFi Kettle, gone to my nearest coffee shop and sat quietly in a corner to recover from this technological headache.

But not Rittman. Hes dedicated to his automatic WiFi kettle, which hooks up to Alexa so its voice activated.


Thats cool, but is it necessary?


When he finally did make progress, his kettle temporarily caused other smart functions in his home to malfunction.

What a nightmare. All for a kettle.


Finally, after 11 hours, Rittman got it to work.

I hope his cup of tea was the best, most refreshing thing he has ever consumed.
