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 recived a letter from the school I am going to next year. Since I am three hours away, I asked her to text me some of the information. Instead she scanned and emailed the entire page to me. She scanned and emailed the blank side of the page.

The other day my Mom asked me to show her how to save some pictures off facebook, but by the time I got hom I forgot. 2 days later I offered to show her how to do it and she responded that I had "missed my chance" and that they were no longer there. Turns out the notification about the pictures being posted had slipped down in her recent activity que to the point that it was no longer immediately visible from her profile, and she simply assumed that the pictures were completely gone.

My mother still asks me which side of the DVD she has to put in even when there's a picture on one of the sides.
I work with a guy who will record music from pandora onto a cassette tape, and then brings it into work to listen to on his radio. His radio is also hooked up to his computer which has internet

My mom stores her pictures in a word document.
My mom always makes sure that I use water and a dish towel to clean off our dishes before putting them in the dish washer. She thinks that dish washers aren't capable of washing sauces off of a plate.
My uncle told me today that he's a genius. When I asked him what happened, he told me that he lost all the photos he took of hot air balloons during the New Mexico Balloon Fiesta, but that it was alright because he found a way to get them back. In the pictures folder on his computer are a bunch of pictures he took of his TV screen, which apparently was showing some hot air balloons on the news. I still don't think he knows about Google yet

My mom sent me an email with the subject "A Photo for You." Attached was a photo of me and my friend that she had copied and saved from my own Facebook, as if I was unaware of my own tagged photos. To top it all off, the name of the file was "Hannah and her New Friend Abby.jpg."
Today my mom got her first iPod Touch. The first question she asks me is, "Can I play Farmville on this?"
