With most of us heading home for the holidays, it's inevitable that there are going to be those hilarious moments with parents and grandparents whenever the subject of computers or the Internet comes up. For instance, whenever my dad wants me to check his email (he's in phase two of checking his own email, I swear), he says "spin up my www." I'm sure we'll all have a lot of stories to share after the holidays, but to get the ball rolling here is a cute one from TeamSugar user GirlC.
The other day my dad called me. "I keep reading about something and I was hoping you could explain it to me," he said. "Let me get the article." I wait while I hear papers being shuffled around."Okay got it. What's wiffy?"
"Yeah, Wiffy. They're talking about it and the Internet and my cellphone."
"Wiffy? Spell it for me," I asked. "W-i-f-i, and there's a dash between the first i and f." After I finished laughing (phone on mute), I let him know it's pronounced, "Why-Feye."
