It is difficult to teach your parents or grandparents about technology, everything from how to use a smartphone or how to login into Facebook or handle Gmail. And it's perfectly alright for them to not know how to change their DP on Whatsapp or how to download a file from internet because they are not supposed to know that.
But what's more difficult is to try & not laugh at some of their cute, innocent questions. So here are some of those adorable questions that are elders ask about technology.
Do they deliver e-mails on Sunday?
Well can't really blame them for this one, as they come from the age when a human mail man used to come and drop all the letters at your doorsteps.
My computer has a virus. What if it kills me?
Seriously! This is the most hilarious and terrible thing anyone could say but it's the truth.
What does this smiley mean?
Look they are so innocent that they don't even know the difference between a smiley and an emoji.
Why do they keep changing the Google logo all the time?
Though Google can do pretty much anything but ''heyy Dad! No, it seriously doesn't change its logo every day, it just tries to remind us of a particular thing or a person that we don't even know about in the first place''.
Will Whatsapp work on this phone? *Shows Nokia 3310!
These days everyone's got a hang of Whatsapp, from your rickshaw driver to your vegetable vendor so why our parents or grandparents be left out. And it's good to know that they at least know about Whatsapp but sometimes they have high hopes from their vintage phones.
Why doesn't my phone click a selfie? Or How to click a selfie?
Step one: A phone with a good front camera. Step two: Point the phone towards you preferably from a top angle. Step three: Now give a cool smile or just pout! Selfie crash course complete.
How to play Solitaire on the new computer?
Forget email, forget Facebook, I want to learn how to play Solitaire first period.
How do I add circle around the ''a'' for email address?
This one is just adorable! :p
How to attach documents in the mail?
How do I clear internet history?
Why do you want to delete your internet history in the first place!?
I unplugged and plugged it again. How can it still not work?
Because there is a software problem and not hardware!!
So they might not know a lot about technology but its okay because they are not supposed to know it. It's actually our job to make them understand this stupid technology while they continue teaching us important life lessons. So go ahead and give them an hour or two of your life, trying to make them understand all things digital.
