They have come a long way I must admit in the past few years. They actually have a computer and they use it quite frequenty. My dad has become an ebay junky and I can never get a hold of them on the phone anymore because he's always on the internet. You'd think after two years they would know about certain things.
My parents had just gotten home after taking a few weeks off to drive to CO and visit my mom's family. They called me upon their return and brought to my attention a strange problem they were having with their computer. They really didn't know what was causing this problem and thought I might be able to come up with a solution. Oh I came up with a solution alright.
mom: we're having this weird problem with our email, I don't know what's wrong with it.
me: what seems to be the problem?
mom: well we didn't get any email at all while we were gone.
me: hmm I guess no one likes you (didn't really say that I just said oh? were you expecting some?)
mom: well we didn't have any new mail when we got home but then all of a sudden it just appeared.
me: smacks head and giggles. Were you connected to the internet while you were gone?
me: were you connected to the internet when all your mail suddenly appeared?
me: did you know you have to be connected to the internet to get your emails?
mom: really? no I didn't know that let me tell your dad
hear mom telling dad that you have to be connected to the internet to get email and him replying with oh!
I could not believe they didn't know this after two years of using email and the internet. It gave me a good laugh.
