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?"

My mom called me over because every time she plugged in her mp3 player the computer "froze" and when she unplugged it it worked again. I asked her to show me so she bent down, unplugged the mouse, plugged in her mp3, then when she moved the mouse and nothing happened said, "See?"

One of my professors is unaware that he can save websites he uses in class by clicking favorite and add to favorites. He instead copies and pastes them into word documents and prints them out. In class he reads the address off of the paper and types it into the address bar. He usually messes them up and spends a good 5 minutes reading them over and correcting them.

I taught English in China for a year. When my birthday came around, my Grandma emailed me a week early to wish me a happy birthday. She thought it would take a long time for the email to get to China, since it is so far away.

My dad couldn't find his phone and blamed it on being set to stun. I asked him if his phaser was vibrating.

MY DAD WRITES IN CAPITAL LETTERS WHEN HE ASKS QUESTIONS ON EBAY BECAUSE IT'S HIS "TRADEMARK".

My mom asked to see my pictures on Facebook. I thought about all the drinking pictures that are on it and then I thought about my mom's computer skills. So I said, if you can find them by yourself, sure. I came back 5 minutes later and she had an empty Microsoft word document up. I think I'm safe.
