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 family got together for the 4th of July weekend. My sister and her husband brought over their Wii and we started to play Wii bowling. My mom was watching us and she noticed how sometimes the ball would drift to the left or the right and we would miss a few pins. She then asked if it would be easier to win if we had a wide screen tv because the ball would be wider and would therefore knock down more pins.
Every time a phone rings on TV my dad picks up his phone, says "hello," then complains about his carrier.

I lost my iPod. My mom suggested I call it.

When I first showed my mom Youtube, she was worried that I'd be exposed to bad videos. So, to make sure, she had me type "Violence" into a Youtube search and made me click the first result to "make sure that I couldn't be exposed to violence."
Of the 34 pictures on my mom's phone, 31 of them are just blackness from her taking pocket pictures.

My mom was on her computer checking her email, when she suddenly exclaimed how she hated Safari and wanted to use Firefox instead. So she, while still using Safari, typed Firefox into google. Her excuse was that she "went into the wrong magnifying glass." What?
Before I left for the Academy my father would send me motivational messages from his "Mobile Cellular Device." The Messages included, and I quote: "Don't forget to turn off your Google before signing out of your hotmail." I still have yet to figure out what he means.

I emailed my grandmom a picture of a fancy meal I made. She replied: "This looks delicious. I couldn't find the exclamation mark on the keyboard so I ended the sentence with a period."
The other day my mum freaked out because they were showing a preview of another show in one of the commercials for a show we were watching. She thought that they had just decided to change what she was watching.
I put my phone on vibrate. When it rang, my dad heard it and asked if it was "that secret ringtone that old people can't hear."
