The other day me and my friend wanted to find out movie times for that night. We got on to his family's computer and pulled up google, and the last search was still up. My friends chubby little brother has been looking up cheat codes for Wii Fit.
My parents, unlike most, are ridiculously protective of the movies I am allowed to watch and the games I am allowed to play. This Christmas, after months of pleading, my parents finally gave in and let me buy Skyrim, which is rated 15 here in the UK. I was so happy and have played it non-stop until about 2 days ago, when disaster struck! During one of Skyrim's many plotlines,... Read More »
While discussing the whole SOPA/PIPA blackout today, I showed my mom a video on youtube of a cat dancing to thriller with the music in the background. She then noticed the related videos and had me show her one for wild foxes jumping on a trampoline. Then she asked, "are there more funny animal videos on this youtube?" ... O crap...
My mother bought a new gateway computer years ago and it she spent about 3 hours trying to hook it up. She finally gave up, and left the room. So I came in and did it in 15 minutes. She came back and asked how I did it. I told her it was because the wires were color coded. In all that time she couldn't figure it out. I was five.
my dad gave me a free phone and got himself a droid. Every few days he gets mad and throws it because it take more than one button to make a phone call. Ive seen it hit the walls, concrete, etc. Girls in school have iPhones that dont last 1 day. They fall off a desk and explode. My dad tries to break his droid and it doesnt even get scratched. Suck on that Apple.
The other day, I was showing my mother some pictures on my laptop. Now, I like to use a wireless mouse with my notebook because the touchpad drives me nuts sometimes. As I shifted through the photos with the mouse on my knee, my mother apparently couldn't put two and two together and she asked how I was working the laptop without touching it. I told her it was mind-control.
My mom claims to be an expert at building websites. She's always telling people that she made her own website from scratch and is constantly offering to help other people make theirs. My mom knows nothing about building a website. She is, however, an expert at registering on blogspot.
My dad recently bought a laptop and asked me if I'd teach him how to "do the internet". I get daily calls from him telling me that his email is "really broken" because he keeps putting his email address into his Bing search bar. He then decided that he hates Bing and demanded to use "Gooble" because that's what his friends use. The last time I visited home I walked in on him... Read More »
A few months ago, I went to visit my Nana. She had purchased an iPod touch, and asked me to help her set it up. Later that day, she asked me why she couldn't get on the internet. I told her that it was because she didn't have a wireless router, and that she needed to purchase one. She then explained that she didn't want one, because "people could give me viruses". I told her how... Read More »
My grandparents recently got their first computer which also came with a printer. Within two days they started calling me because they thought they were running out of ink in the printer. I asked them how much they were printing. Their response: We have sent over 30 e-mails." So I had to drive down to their appartement and explain to them in detail that it does not take up ink...

I used to work for a chinese computer company that no longer exists; one Christmas Eve a man comes into the store right as we are closing and counting money and insists that we start up the Point of Sale system again and sell him the video card he reserved online. We tell him that the computers have been shut down and all the transactions of the day batched and sent to the credit... Read More »
My stepdad asked me to help him fix his computer because he said something strange had happened to it and didn't know how to fix it. When I saw the computer the screen saver was on, so I moved the mouse and it disappeared. My stepdad said "so how did you just fix it?"!!!!
