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!
My boss sent me (via email) a scanned copy of a printed out website and told me to contact them. I almost wanted to tell her I couldn't because the "contact us" button didn't work.
I work for an old priest on Campus. He's great, but when it comes to technology he has a grudge against anything electronic but commits himself to trying anyways. When he searches google, he TypesEverythingAsOneWord because "someone told me there are no spaces on the internet."

Yesterday, my mom asked me for help with her computer. When I looked at her screen I saw that she had searched her email address on google. She wanted to check her email, go figure.
My mom recently got a touch screen phone, she didn't like it so she gave it to me. Everything on the phone was cleared except one video. Its a 5 sec clip of the floor in the sprint store, during which you can hear my mom saying, "Oh no, now its doing video."
My mom keeps a post-it note on the computer screen that says, "Edit: copy, Edit:paste"
My dad's ringtone for a text msg is longer than his ringtone for an actual call.

I just watched one of my professors go find a link she wanted to share with the class, write it on a piece of paper, go to the page where she distributes class materials, then type it out.

My Grandpa recently joined Facebook but still has the generic male photo outline so I posted on his wall that he needs to get a photo to put up on his page. He responded simply, "I don't want to break my computer."
My father created a Facebook account under the name Fred. His name is not Fred. When I asked him why he created two accounts he replied, "So Fred can send me gifts and fertilize my crops on FarmVille."

The first day of class our teacher told us to make sure we put our phones on "wiggle."
