Searched for flights on various date/time combinations.

Enabled automatic price alert to notify me when ticket price reaches a preset amount.

Purchased ticket from my laptop with a few clicks.

Sent notifications to different people via various communication apps.

Changed flight from my phone during a teleconference meeting.

Booked transportation for a date in the near future from my phone while walking to another meeting.

At no point did I have to talk to anyone, and I now have electronic records of all the transactions archived for easy reference and search.

There’s something to be said for human connection, absolutely, but in terms of convenience? What a time to be alive.
