K is for Kainophobia #atozchallenge

There once was a man who feared everything new
If anything changed, he created much ado
Tried and tested worked fine
Change though, made him whine
Routine and monotony was all he could do

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Kainophobia is the fear of new things

    A most boring life then – I guess he’s never heard of “a change is as good as a rest”. Nice one.

    Fear of change… yupp, I have it. Always had it… ever since I was a baby. Never knew the name for it though.

    I think we all know someone like that. I like new things, as long as I’m still within my comfort zone, which might be a contradiction I guess!

    I think I suffer of that in a tiny, more harmless form. *lol* Change can make me freak out, I prefer routine. Great poem!

    I had a coworker like that. It was tough working with her, and when she left, we were all relieved
