Push-buttons

My life is a push-button. It feels like all I do is sit at my devices and push buttons. Tower computer, laptop, tablet, smart phone, stupid phone, kitchen appliances, laundry equipment, tools, whatnot: I am tired of pushing buttons. This pushes my button.


“A push-button or simply button is a simple switch mechanism for controlling some aspect of a machine or a process. Buttons are typically made out of hard material, usually plastic or metal. The surface is usually flat or shaped to accommodate the human finger or hand, so as to be easily depressed or pushed. Buttons are most often biased switches, although many un-biased buttons still require a spring to return to their un-pushed state. Terms for the "pushing" of a button include pressing, depressing, mashing, hitting, and punching.”
