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 thought rumble strips in roads were for blind people so that they know when to slow down and stop.

My mom invited me to join Facebook.
My grandfather thinks that every time he needs to check his email, he has to set up a new account. So he goes to hotmail.com and sets up a whole new account and gets angry when his old username is taken, so he makes up a new one. He enters in all his information and then gets a new account where he then sees he has no new emails and emails everyone else his new email account. My grandfather has over 15 email accounts that I have to go through and delete.

My mom recently discovered instant messaging on her Yahoo email account. So she told me she noticed her friend was online and tried to message her but she immediately logged off after she sent it. Five minutes later her friend calls her and asks if that was her that "popped up on her screen." My mom says, "I don't know where I popped up."

I work at an orchard with peaches, apples, pears, ect. I was working the register one day and a customer was complaining about rotten peaches, and I had to explain to him that the peaches were at least a month old by now. So he decided to blame the cell phone tower around a mile away for cooking the peaches from the inside out. He made a petition about it.

My dad won't let my little brother install Tap-Tap on his ipod touch because he says the ipod is only good for so many taps.
