Steve Carell would be a nightmare in an office setting, apparently he is afraid of computers taking over the world.Â And you know, speaking of that, mine has really started to look at me funny….
The OfficeÂ star tells Parade magazine, “I dream about computers that turn into evil robots and eat my face. I’m not kidding.Â There’s no deep reason â€“ no ticking toy ever harmed me in my youth. I never got a big electric shock. I just don’t have the aptitude for technology or even the inclination.”
Despite Steve’s fear of computer technology, he does admit that he is not uncomfortable with domestic appliances.
“I have figured out toasters and blenders and the television. I’ve got that down â€“ the on/off button and the cable box.Â And I’m going to brag now: I can do everything with a microwave. But that pretty much covers it in terms of my technology acumen.”
I’ll tell you what, Steve, since you can use the word ‘acumen’ in a sentence appropriately, I’ll go ahead & let this technophobe slide.
