Do your parents not understand technology? Do they ask you stupid questions? Do they send you absurd text 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.
Because they're stupid.
I recently got this email from my grandma:
Subject: "yes i want to your friend @ my space"
Body: "Nate I need help to work with my space. love, grandma."
Nate is my cousin.
From Aaron, Chico State
My dad gives his friends on facebook his user name and password so they can log onto his account and look at his pictures. He also double clicks on links.
My grandmother just bought my brother a new flat screen TV and after Ifinished hooking it up she said, "Oh no, I forgot to ask the man at thestore if it was color."
My bro just graduated from college so my mom took a lot of pictures. Instead of emailing them to him, I posted all of them on photobucket, made it private, and gave him the password so he could just download them from there. When my mom found out about this, she got scared and yelled at me about "identity theft" and told me to immediately delete all the photos. Instead, I deleted my account, and reset it after I got the verification email from photobucket and my bro got the pictures the next day. 2 weeks later he got all 80 of his pictures in the mail from our mom. Each of them was printed on computer paper.
From Jimmy, Brooklyn
My mom and dad leave the remote control on top of the TV.
