We got my mother in law a cell phone for her b-day. When we began to enter numbers into her contacts list, she protested. Saying that she did not want all those people to know her number.

uPick Idiotech - Contacts

My father-in-law has a hard time sorting through the contacts on his phone. Instead of listing people alphabetically, he puts his favorites at the top of the list by putting letters in front of their names: “AAJen”, “ABPete”, “ACJack”, etc. I tried to explain that he only needs to press the first letter of a person’s name to jump to them on the list. But he refuses to do this because he also thinks of it as a ranking system and he “doesn’t want Dr. Larry to be above members of his family”.
