Do your parents not understandtechnology? Do they ask you stupid questions? Do they send you absurdtext messages? Do they use words like "MyFace," "SpaceBook," or "TheWorld 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!

Any time I'm looking at a picture of a lol cat my dad comes up behind me and reads it with a Russian accent.
My mom just recently got a Facebook account. When I write on her wall or comment on a picture, she replies to the email notification that Facebook sends her and forwards it to me.
My dad thinks I have a blackberry because my phone is black.

My grandparents are looking for a new TV to replace the one from the 70's that they have in their bedroom. While I was hanging out with them, my grandpa started to read an ad to my grandma about a TV that was $199.99. Laterm i picked up the magazine to see what he was looking at
he thought the staple in the binding was the number one (the real price was 99.99) and he thought the nextar gps system pictured was a tv

When my dad tries to end a call, he holds down the "end" button so long it shuts the phone off.

My grandmother lives in a different country, and wanted to send me an e-card for my birthday because sending a normal card was too expensive. When I received the card, I accidentally permanently deleted it because I thought it was spam, but didn't have the heart to tell her. When I told her that I had not received the e-mail with the card in it, she replied "Well maybe it got stopped at the border."
