They Think They Know, But They Have No Idea
April 15, 2008
Do your parents not understand technology? Do they ask you stupid questions? Do they send you absurdtext messages? Do they even know what a text message is?
If you've got an example of your Parents Just Don't Understanding, send it to
parentsjustdontunderstand (at) gmail.com
. And, hey, if we publish it, send your parents a link. They probably won't understand what it is.
This week's theme is Somtimes It's Funnier When They Think They Understand:
I was in Best Buy with my dad and he was looking at computers with little to no knowledge about them. A sales rep walks up and said, "Hi, can I help you find something?" and my dad asked, "Does this computer come with Google?"

I was playing Guitar Hero at a friend's house and his dad asked if he could play. So we give him the guitar and then after he searched through the song list, he asked, "Where's soldier boy?"

My dad tried to impress me with his computin' skillz. He told me he wanted to make a picture bigger, so he "downloaded it" [printed it], then scanned it, then "downloaded it" [printed it] again.
My 72 Year old grandmother just got a computer and she sent me an email with the subject line, "oh stephy you're not going to believe this!" When I opened it, the message said, "Did you know you can delete all your emails at once?!"
I was reading my mom some of the "Parents Just Don't Understand" stories and she didn't get why some of them were funny.
