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!
During class one day I facebook-IMed my mom to scare her. She replied with "How are we talking right now? I don't understand." And then, one word per line, she typed out."WHAT IS THIS? IS THIS THE FUTURE?"

The ONLY text message I have ever received from my dad said this: "EMERGENCY GO HOME AND TURN OFF COFFEE MAKER." Amazingly, that actually got me out of school early.
My cousin, who is in her sixties, insists that when using the microwave, you MUST leave your food inside with the door closed for one minute after it is done cooking so that "the microwaves can go away."

My parents never got caller ID at home, so our 'call screening' is just never answering the phone. My mom says that "if it's important, they'll call back."

While I was in the shower, my father was using my computer. When I got out , both my parents were glaring at me angrily. While my father was using the internet, a message came up that stated, "This computer has 1,954 pornographic images on it. Would you like to delete?" He clicked yes. The computer doesn't turn on now. They think its because the porn had a virus. There was no porn.
When I send my mom a link for something on Youtube, she types the address into the address bar instead of clicking on the link.
My boss is 62 years old. Today he was ordering computer stuff from Newegg. When the website asked to store his credit card information he completely canceled the order because he didn't want them having his card on file.

My mother sent me a text that said,"Did you get this? I'm trying to send a text." I never responded, so I'm guessing she thinks it didn't work.
