My boyfriend’s mom is ALWAYS on the computer so I assumed she was fairly good at it. I have sinced learned otherwise:
1. She has 3 copies of everything (and none of them are organized by folders or ANYTHING)
2. She has had Facebook for a year I think, and just recently learned that she had a profile when I showed it to her.
3. I told her once that it was easier to find things if you save them to your desktop while you are using them. She has since saved EVERYTHING to her desktop.
4. She can ONLY use her e-mail if it is on outlook express. There is no other way.
5. DO NOT PRANK HER USING THE COMPUTER. One day when she was gone, i took a picture of her desktop (with the TONS of pictures and icons) and moved them all to a folder in the corner. Then I set the screen- shot as her background so that it looked like the icons were all there but they weren’t clickable. Apparantly, she turned the computer off and on a few times before cussing it and blaming the problem on a virus.

“Before my mom went on vacation, I told her not to use her phone or else she would be charged a roaming free. In Europe, she used her phone to upload 3 photos to Facebook, which resulted in a $45 charge. She thought the photos were small enough that our provider would not charge us roaming.”
