I'm A Tech Idiot

I complain, a lot, about being an idiot with new technology.  Or, changes in the limited technology I'm familiar with.  When someone sends me something like this, I have to smile and say, "Thank goodness I'm not THAT bad!"





Have a great weekend!

I'm loving my dad's companion who is now on facebook. I'll tell her what you can do on facebook and she's always asking 'how do you do that?' I've promised her a day of sitting with her and showing her the ins and out of fb but the problem is every time we come up with a day, fb changes and I have to figure it out first!
Guess technology isn't my favorite thing either.....

Janie said...

Haha..I hear ya.... My son's expect me to know this stuff..(I guess by osmosis! NOT!
But I suppose I am doing better than some my age. I actually show my sister how to do things!

Ms. A said...

Leontien, I don't know, it might! I've been close to being that bad, but have been able to learn... some.

Gigi said...

Hahahaha! Too funny.

I figure by being open to learning this new technology (that seems to be thrust upon us every single day) then we are exercising our brains and keeping ourselves young.

(Well, it SOUNDS good in theory anyway)

Sally said...

Love this!

I actually thought I was doing pretty good until my 5 y/o great-granddaughter showed me how to play computer solitaire!

Hope your weekend is GOOD!!

AAAAH! That's too funny! So, are you saying that's NOT how to erase things? It would answer a number of things I have heard my techie friends mumble when they think I'm not listening...

So. Cal. Gal said...

My mom and brother drive me NUTS asking 'how do I...'. Grr!

Hartwood Roses said...

The only reason I know as much as I do about computers and technology is that I chose to marry a computer geek 30+ years ago. He has carried me along as technology evolves past my abilities, patiently teaching me what I need to know. What I don't know, he does for me. It's a good match.

Can you even get White Out anymore?

Deborah said...

I'm worried. I see the signs already. :)

Anonymous said...

What's not hilarious is, my nieces & nephews would say "what's white out?"

Alice in Wonderland said...

Oh, Ms A, I'm terrible too! After just a short time, FaceBook has changed....and on top of that, there is now Google+, which is in competition with FaceBook.....CONFUSED YET?
Gosh, things change so fast it is enough to try the patience of a Saint!
I feel sorry for your friend trying to explain it all!

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

Ha! How funny: )My mother actually embraced using a computer years before I would touch one. She was a pioneer! Her daughter was afraid the world would end if she pushed the wrong button ; )

Pat Tillett said...

My MIL's two sisters in late 70's and early 80's are both a whiz on the computer. My MIL, would rather poke her own eyes out than learn to email...

TechnoBabe said...

This is great. The woman in the picture looks like a lifetime secretary used to the white out.

Jenny said...

Okay. I officially feel better about being so techno challenged now! Hooray! Go me!
