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!
I left my Twitter page open while I played Call of Duty and my dad came in and asked if he could look something up because the family computer is slow. I let him do it without supervision and when I returned to Twitter, I saw that my dad had responded to one of Katy Perry's TwitPics with,"Ohio lottery."

My teacher was looking for a picture of Versailles. She typed "google images" into the Google search bar at the top of her browser and then, when that page came up, typed into Google "google images Versailles." She tried several different variations of this and finally gave up and made a student do it for her.
My dad sends me a private message on facebook, and then asks me through facebook chat if I got his message. Several times a day.
I got a phone call from my dad while I was in dorms, telling me off for neglecting my studies by going on the internet late at night when I should be studying/asleep. Turns out he thought that every time the lights flicker on our wireless router at home, it was because I was using our internet at college 900 miles away.
One year for Christmas my grandpa decided to give my great-grandma (his mom) an Ipod Nano, the really skinny one. When she opened it she picked it up, read the label and said, "Is this a new hi-tech cellphone?" She then held it up to her ear still in the plastic box and proceeded to speak into it and then asked where the buttons were.
My sister asked my mum to go into iTunes, so she went onto google and typed in " iTunes.com"
