Mom Gets Taken For A Ride

Mom: So I finally went a bought a new computer yesterday!

Me: That’s great! What kind?

Mom: I got a Dell laptop. And I also got a wireless mouse.

Me: Oh cool! Wish I had a wireless mouse!

Mom: Yeah, well I need it ’cause I’m going to get a scanner soon.

Me: What? What does a wireless mouse have to do with a photo scanner?

Mom: You know, to scan the photo you have to swipe the lazer from the mouse back and fourth across the picture!

Me: Oh my god, I bet the salesman had a field day with you.

      There should be a parental technology protection act. One that mandates that all technology related purchases must be approved by their children. :) This act would undoubtedly save many a parent from mean vicious lying salesmen!

      I remember when I got my first digital camera, the salesman convinced my aunt that we absolutely needed a card reader otherwise the camera would be useless because there would be no way to get the pictures onto my computer… even though it said on the box that it comes with a usb cable… that plugs into any computer…

      A couple of yrs ago I taught my now 79 yr old mom to use a PC. She now sends out a family e-mail w/ graphics twice a year! However, she DOES fall for every “send this to 10 of your friends” e-mail, so all my junk mail comes from my mom!! Plus she leaves her PC on ALL day and checks her e-mail like a fanatic… lol… it’s almost like IMing her to send her an e-mail.
