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?"

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!

When the power went out at my house, my mom took our laptop and tried getting on the internet to check the weather to see when the storm would pass. I told her she couldn't get on because the internet is down too. She insisted she could because "the internet is in the air."

My mom just joined Facebook, so I IMed her. She was typing for a long time before she finally called me and asked how to make it send what she wrote because she couldn't find the button. I told her to hit enter. This is the IM I got: "Are you IMing me on purpose or is this auto? I don't know how to use this thing. How do I send this? Can you see me typing? Help help help help … Send send send send send send send send send send send send now send now send now finished SEND SEND Help send…"

My girlfriend's dad typed a huge letter out on the computer. After he was done, he printed it and decided the font was too small, so he erased the whole thing, changed the font size, and retyped it.

My parents just got a cell phone and computer a few weeks ago. Yeah, I know they were living in the stone age! Anyway, my mom ended up sending her first email to me and it said, "Isn't this text messaging thingy so cool?"

My mom goes to Google, searches "Facebook login," and then types in her email/password (which she has written down so she won't forget) each time she wants to get on Facebook.

Once I moved into my new apartment, my mom texted me to ask for the address. I messaged it back with an exclamation mark at the end because I was excited. She answered, "Is the ! part of your zip code?"

My dad used the house phone to call my mom. She left it at home so when it rang, he picked it up. He said hello with the house phone on the left ear and the cell phone on the right ear. It took him about a second or two to realize that he was talking to himself.
