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?"
If you've got an example of your Parents Just Don't Understanding, submit it here.
And thank God we'll never be as dumb as they are!

When my parents got the internet, I spent hours explaining how to type in a web address, but my dad still doesn't understand that it has to be a real website to work. When I look at the previous addresses they read, "www.golfcoursesnearmyrtlebeach.com" or "www.insurancepoliciesforseniors.com"

My mom got on my laptop and opened the 'my documents' folder and proceeded to ask me, " But where are MY documents?"

The voice that says the directions and when to turn on my parents' GPS is a female (with an Australian accent, WTF dad?) voice. So every time my dad and mom discuss what the GPS is saying, they say things like, "Oh, she said to turn here." or, "Looks like she's getting low on batteries."

I was trying to meet up with my dad while I was back in town over break. He said "call my new cell phone and we will have lunch." So I called and called and finally I ended up just going to the house. I walked in and said "I called a few times whats up?" He replies: "This damn phone keeps playing the same song over and over but it never rang so I put it in the other room." I looked at it and it was apparently the default ringtone.

We have DSL at our house. My dad disables/enables the network connection every time he gets on or off the internet so "he doesn't waste it".

My mom still buys full screen DVDs.
