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?"

Someone with the wrong number mistakenly called my dad's cell last week and he called AT&T and yelled at the customer service rep. for giving out his number to people he didn't know.

My friend's father asked to make a phone call while at our house. I handed him the huge cordless house phone and he said, "Oh, your family only uses cell phones now?"

My Dad won't turn his cell phone on when he's traveling in a vehicle because he thinks he's going to get "roaming charges." He makes the signal for "quotations" with his fingers when he says it too.
My grandpa had a habit of losing his cordless home phone so, to solve his problem, he found a piece of yarn and tied one end around the phone and the other one around the receiver. He's still really excited about this "invention."
