I feel a little giddy, so I'm going to poke a little fun at my mom. She may be stupid (still reading mom?? Keep on reading...), but she's cool in that she can laugh at herself, so here goes. Yesterday, my mom finished an essay for her ESL class and needed to print it out. She's had a computer in her house for over 15 years, took several college-level programming courses, and uses her laptop on a daily basis. She came to me, so I said, "OK, print it". She didn't know how. I said, "OK, email it to me and I'll print it." She didn't know how. I ended up printing it for her. I made several corrections to the paper version of the essay and handed the paper back. She made the corrections on the computer and somehow managed to lose the changes, and had to make the corrections all over again. She stays up until 3 o'clock doing so, saves the file to her USB, and leaves for class at 7 a.m. I was awake at 3 a.m., but she didn't ask me to print the file. She arrives in class, heads for a computer to print the file, and can't open the file on the USB. She never noticed that the school computer uses Office 2000 while her laptop uses Office 2007. Then she tries to open her email, thinking that it was the USB's problem. She goes to the sign-up form instead of login, and starts filling out her name, address, username, password, etc. Eventually she gave up. I could have had the problem fixed in a minute, but she never called me (I'm on March Break) or asked any of her classmates. Oh my god. How can anybody be this clueless?
