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 mom is convinced that in order for her to use Skype she needs to have Internet Explorer open so she is "connected to the internet."
My mom, after years of semi-successfully emailing me, sent me an empty email with an attachment that led to a Google Doc asking me to send her a picture of my new haircut. WTF mom? I'm surprised although I guess I shouldn't be since you still insist on holding the house phone to your ear while you skype me

Every time I'm listening to loud music on my pc, my father still tells me to "turn down the radio." I don't have a radio.
My mom has a friend who was abroad and she chat with her everyday through facebook or gmail. One day she told me that her friend said chatting through msn is faster. She asked, "Is there any in the house?"
My grandmother asked me today if I needed to get a separate laptop to use for my French classes because the one I have now doesn't have french buttons.
My mother asked me to delete all her email contacts today because she didn't want them seeing her emails. When I told her that's not how it works, she began talking about how facebook exploits privacy. I still don't get how she thinks her email is facebook.

My dad and I were playing Super Mario Bros. on Wii. We were playing it for about a half an hour, and then he asks me, "How do I jump?"
My mom has such a hard time using her laptop that she keeps calling me all the time to teach her how to do stuff. So I made a series of videos she could watch anytime, one of them, the "how to copy a file" video, has 136 views.
My dad recently asked if I could send him some "anti-bacteria software" from my laptop to fix the viruses on his.

My parents insist on using both an atlas and a GPS when we're on family trips so "We know the GPS is taking us the right way."
