Do your parents not understand computers? None of them do, they're all morons! People that dumb shouldn't be allowed to breed.

If you've got an example of your Parents Just Don't Understanding, embarrass them and send it to parentsjustdontunderstand (at)

  • Every time my mom sends me a text message, she calls me immediately afterward asking, "Did you get my text message?"
    -James from Creighton

  • My father-in-law asked me where the lower-case keys are.
    -Brian H.
  • I tried to teach my grandmother basic computer skills, but I wasn't able to get anywhere with her because she kept rotating the mouse on the mouse-pad. She thought you had to steer it like a car when you wanted the pointer to go someplace.
    -Kurtis from University of Missouri-Columbia
  • My grandfather literally used the screen as a mousepad because he thought the cursor was controlled by the mouse being on the screen. -Chad G.
  • My grandmother got a digital camera for her birthday, and took it with her on a trip the next week. Since the camera's setting was on video from day one, she took 5-second video clips the whole trip and no pictures. When the memory was full, she put the camera back in the box and left it in the closet for a year because she didn't know how to take the footage off.
