Parental Tech Support

This morning Mom calls me at 8:30 to ask how to start a Word document, because she can't find the icon in the "recent documents list."

Then she calls again at 9:30 to ask me how to save it, and if "the little book with the pencil at the bottom of the screen means that it worked." (That's spell check.)

She's had the computer for over 7 years. And has written instructions.

  • These are just a few of her not so clever ways to talk to you each morning.

    I have to agree with Jen.  She needs to come up with better excuses for calling to talk about nothing ...

  • Well, she got her dang head bitten off on the second call, since I had 10 minutes to get dressed, put on makeup, and get out of the house to my dentist appointment. Hope it was worth it.

  • I agree with pp's...excuse to talk. =)  Regardless of the quality of the conversation heh.
  • Screw with her head a little bit now and then!!   You could have easily made her erase whatever it was she just wrote. Would have kept her busy a little while longer.  Or, answer the phone in a spanish accent and let her think its a new house keeper, (or the wrong number).  Maybe pick up the phone, drop it on the floor and then start moaning while whispering "harder harder...oh yeah"..)

    Come on...do it. DO IT!!

  • My mom calls me at least once a month needing help with her DVR/Satellite box.  I don't have the same box as her and mine is for cable.  She's funny though, everytime she calls I tell her to power cycle the box and to call Dish Network.
