Google as Mom Replacement

Backstory: My mother emails me often to ask questions that can easily be answered by going to Google.

Well fine!  If you never want to help me ever again with anything then just tell me!  Maybe GOOGLE put diapers on you and stayed up all night to make sure you were breathing!

      Perhaps your mother just wants some contact (coming from a mother who hardly EVER hears from HER daughter) other than being asked for something.

        I don’t mean for this post to sound mean or anything, but I can really relate to this PFYM. With that said if that’s the case, then for all the moms out there, just call your children to chat instead of asking infuriatingly simple computer questions just to have contact with your children. I love talking to my parents, but I do not love being pestered with questions that could be answered in a few seconds by the internet. Even if it only takes us a minute to answer the question for you, it still makes you seem needy and lazy, and it tries our patience because you’d rather bother us with some trivial question than do the work yourself. If you want to talk to us, talk to us. But don’t waste our time with silly questions you could google in 5 seconds.

        On the flip-side of this situation, I used to use small cooking questions as an excuse to call my MIL because calling “just to talk” seemed odd. After a while, she sent me a binder full of random kitchen facts (how long things are good for in the freezer, ect.) and there went my excuses to call. 7 years later, I now call often “just to talk” and all is well. =)

      If I called my MIL “just to talk,” she’d think I was drunk or needed medical attention.

      Very good site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of
      any community forums that cover the same topics discussed here?
      I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get responses from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
      If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

      Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing the other person’s blog
      link on your page at proper place and other person will also do same in support of you.

      I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
      It seems like some of the written text on your content are running off the screen.
      Can somebody else please comment and let me know if
      this is happening to them as well? This may be a
      problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
