When my father charges his cell phone, he stretches the full length of the cord out in a straight line so that "it will charge faster" and so the "electricity won't get stuck" in the corners. Bear in mind this man is of the baby boomer generation the group of people raised using new electronic devices their entire lives. It's a shame after 60 years he hasn't quite grasped the concept of electricity yet.

My Dad literally just yelled at me because he got his USB drive and his MP3 player confused and blames me for his USB drive not playing music in his car because

My mom called the house phone today. I answered and she asked me where I was.
My cousin took a picture of my grandmother and me to send to my other cousin on his phone. My Grandmother exclaimed, "To think, she'll get that in just an hour."
I asked my grandma earlier if she wanted to play Wii Bowling. Her answer? "I don't have any bowling shoes."
When a neighbor popped in during a family event and asked if we knew what a smartphone was, my mother quickly and proudly stated, "Yes! It's AT&T's answer to the iPhone!" She then looked at me and stuck her tung out bragging that she knew more about that stuff than i did
It was a nice try.
My mom just asked, "Can I receive my e-mails in hotmail form?" Confused, I went to look at her screen. The option was for HTML format. Good guess though, Mom!
When games still came in cartridge form, I rented a game at a local store while spending the weekend with my grandmother. At the end of the weekend, she would not take the game back because I couldn't rewind it and she was concerned that the store would fine her for the unrewound game.

My mum was trying to find a picture of a boy from a film that we had just watched. She typed 'boy' into Google and expected it to work.
