    Parents don't understand...

    Do your parents not understand technology? Do they ask you stupid questions? Do they send you absurd text messages? Do they use words like "MyFace," "SpaceBook," or "The World Wide Web?"

    My parents recently went to Europe for a retirement vacation. They came back so surprised to tell me that Europe had internet. I asked why they thought that it wouldn't and they replied, "Because its called AMERICA Online."

    My Dad won't turn his cell phone on when he's traveling in a vehicle because he thinks he's going to get "roaming charges." He makes the signal for "quotations" with his fingers when he says it too.

    My grandparents are looking for a new TV to replace the one from the 70's that they have in their bedroom. While I was hanging out with them, my grandpa started to read an ad to my grandma about a TV that was $199.99. Laterm i picked up the magazine to see what he was looking at... and... he thought the staple in the binding was the number one (the real price was 99.99) and he thought the nextar gps system pictured was a tv

    My grandmother lives in a different country, and wanted to send me an e-card for my birthday because sending a normal card was too expensive. When I received the card, I accidentally permanently deleted it because I thought it was spam, but didn't have the heart to tell her. When I told her that I had not received the e-mail with the card in it, she replied "Well maybe it got stopped at the border."

    Hehe...Make me laugh...Very true.
    For me, it's the opposite. I code BASIC since my first TRS-80 in 1980 ( I was 15 y/o), PASCAL in '86 (at uni), HTML and first site in '95, JAVA in '97, PHP in 2000 and I fix my 18 y/o daughter laptop, doing her websites, fixing her iphone, uploading her songs and first to upload 700Mb of files from a hand made cantenna on a dish to a telescope/cantenna wirelessly on a 28 miles range...
