Other ways he missed modern technology were much smaller. Like say, when he’s cooking dinner. Sam stands in his rather small apartment in the dingy kitchen trying to peel potatoes with a knife or some kind of wobbly instrument that didn’t work. He missed the peeler he had in 2006 that had a nice strong rubber grip and a sharp edge. It peeled potatoes with one sift stroke. In 1973, he had to cut about half of the potato off trying to get all the skin off.
Unfortunately at the moment Sam was sitting at his desk, eyes closed, in the Manchester Police station in the middle of the 70’s. He rather liked pondering about his old life during slow times like this. Suddenly he heard a slam in front of him. He opened his eyes in looked up. Gene Hunt was staring at him a little too close for Sam comfort expecting him to answer.

“Two suspects in the double were seen going toward a warehouse at the end of town. You awake enough to come or should I just let you continue your little nap.” He said.
“I’m awake, let’s go.” Said Sam annoyed and rising from his chair.
“That’s what I like to hear.” Said Gene. Sam grabbed his black leather jacket and swung it over his shoulders.
