My car is ever so high tech. It has a cd player, which is an advance on my last car which had a cassette player.
For reasons to be explained in another post, I wanted to play a cd. I can't remember playing one before in the car. Maybe I have, but I had forgotten how the machine works. I tried inserting the cd into the slot. It would not go in. It occurred to me that maybe there was one in there already. Yes. Ah, Indian music. I had forgotten about the cd a friend made for me. I must have used this machine before then. How do I get it out. I pressed a button and half the face of the machine fell off. Yes, you are supposed to take this bit with you when you leave the car. As if anyone would want to steal this radio/cd player. Try this button and out popped the cd. I inserted the new one, and away it went.
I listened to three tracks between home and work. The next time I used the car, I wondered if the cd would pick up where it left off. Of course not. It started at the beginning again.
Wait, Denise Scott is on the radio. I want to hear her. I ejected the cd and it poked out a bit as I went to grab it, the machine sucked it back in a again. I repeated the action, as did the machine. It was too quick for me and I soon tired of this game and the first line of the first song.
Then I learnt that to eject properly, you need to press and hold the eject button. The cd comes right out and it easy to remove. If you don't remove it, after a few seconds it takes it back in for safekeeping and does not start playing.
I should have just skipped this technology. Fancy learning about cd players just as they are disappearing.
