My grandparents just bought a brand new, 50" plasma screen TV. They keep their VHS casette tapes in the stand underneath the TV.
My mom thought that a laptop was called a labtop. She called it a labtop "because scientists invented them."
Every time I send my parents a link to a Youtube video, they think I filmed it. I've stopped explaining it to them.

My girlfriend's dad has a cell phone and he uses all the preset ringers that were programmed when he got the phone. Despite having different ringers for incoming calls, voicemail, text messages etc
every time the phone makes any sound, he puts it to his ear and says hello. If it's a text or voice mail he receives, he continues to say hello over and over.

Back when I was in high school, I told my parents I wanted a GameCube for my birthday. They apparently leaked the request to my grandmother, who gave me a single GameCube memory card and a controller.
