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

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

  • My dad watches Tae-bo VHS tapes on a tv in his gym, but he wanted to convert them to DVD. His solution was to place his new macbook on the top of a ladder and use the built-in webcam to tape the TV, then try to burn them onto a disc.

  • My mom asked me to find her the video of Ms. Philippines on YouTube. I explained to her that the video was on CollegeHumor and she replied, "Nevermind, I don't have that."

  • I found this "review" for Thank You for Smoking while browsing Netflix:

    "We don't want any R rated movies sent to us. We know that this limits our choices, But that's O.K. When I ordered this movie I didn't know that it was rated R. If I order another one by accident, don't send it. Thanks, Jan."

  • And a very special sisters don't understand…
    My girlfriend and I were trying to connect to the wireless network at her house but were having problems. Her little sister, a high school senior, then told us that we should try and connect to an unprotected network at the Linksys' house. When we explained it was a company and not a name, she told us that she had been trying to figure out for months where in the neighborhood the Linksys family lived. She couldn't understand why she could still access their network at her boyfriends house a couple of miles away. She figured that they just had a "really strong connection."
