please ... call your son the next time you need help with your computer...


Me: "Okay, click on the Start button there in the lower left..."
Mom: "Okay....should the computer be on?"
Me: "Um, yes."
Mom: "Okay, powering up." [Now she's launching a Space Shuttle all of the sudden]
Me: "So is it up now?"
Mom: "Yes. The Start button, you said?"
Me: "Yes. Now go to the Control Panel."
Mom: "Is that the keyboard?"
Me: "No. Under the Start Menu...the Control Panel."
Mom: "Under the Start Menu? How can I go under it? It doesn't go down...it only goes up."
Me: [Punching my own thigh to release explosive buildup of insanity] "(Deep breath) Okay...let's start over. Click on the Start Menu..."
Mom: "Again?"
Me: [Slamming head against phone receiver] "Just the one time. Now do you see something there called Control Panel?"
Mom: [As if she see's Jesus standing in the kitchen] "YES! I SEE IT!!"
Me: "Good! Okay, now click on that..."
Mom: "Click on what? The Control Panel?"
Me: "Well, what the heck do you think...YES!"
Mom: "Now, don't get all mad Krissy, I don't know..."
Me: "I know, I'm sorry...did you click on it?"
Mom: "Click on what?"

I think you and I are sisters...
The last time my mom's computer crashed, Bill went over her house to fix it while I made an excuse to go shopping with her.

I remember trying to explain to my mom something she'd always ask:

"should I click or double click?"

I never knew how to answer that... I was just like "try both, one will work I promise"

Mom: This computer is broke. The screen doesn't even work.

Beth: Did you try turning the monitor on?

At my old Job, I head the CEO yelling at his assistant because he couldn't dial in to his AOL account, mind you, we were on T-1 lines.

ROFLMFAO!


When my parents have trouble, I just drive there and fix it. I would drive 5 hours each way to avoid trying to walk them through something on the phone!
