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!
Facebook deactivated my account for an "inappropriate picture." My mom asked me what happened, and I told her. She got mad at me and asked me if there was insurance that could get my facebook back.

One day my mom wanted to send me two webpage's she wanted me to read, so I told her to just send me the link on Gtalk, she insisted there was no link to the website, so she copy and pasted the whole two pages and pasted them into Gtalk and sent them to me.

My dad recently got the Angry Birds app for his iphone and he plays it all the time. One day I saw him start up the app and go straight to level one and I said, what are you doing on level one, why aren't you going further to beat the game? He thought to get back to where he was he had to beat every level all over again.
After getting tired of hearing my parents argue over why the telephone wasn't working I decided to investigate. Apparently, not only was it not getting a dial tone, but was also turning the television on and off.

While in Prague last summer, I used Skype to call home. The first time I called my dad on his cell phone he asked me, "So, can you see me right now?"
My uncle gave my grandmother a laptop. A few days later, he checked up on her to see how she was adapting to it. She had 67 Mozilla Firefox windows open. When he asked why she didn't close them when she was done, she asked, "How much does it cost to close a window?"
My mum can't, for the life of her, remember her Skype password, which is her name with an @ instead of an A, so every time she wants to use Skype she clicks on "forgot password," and logs into her email, WHICH HAS THE SAME PASSWORD to change it back to the same password!!
My parents turn off the fax machine when they aren't using it to save power and then complain that they aren't receiving their faxes
Every time my mom sees me with my laptop she asks, "Are you going to do Internet now or are you just doing the Facebook?"
I was on the phone talking to my mom when she tells me about some deal she saw on amazon. I tell her to send me the link so I can look at it, and I have to explain how to copy and paste the link. About ten minutes into explaining to her how to copy and paste the link, my brother has to step in to try and help but she just yells at him that she can get it herself. Another 10 minutes later she finally sends me an email. She had only copy pasted the name of the product. Not the link.
