My Grandma Wants To Learn How To Email

Funny Family Tech Stories: A Sweet Message From Grandma

My family is relatively tech-savvy, but as you know, we definitely have our share of funny family tech stories. My latest installment, a card from my grandmother, telling me she missed me. And under her sweet message was this gem. It reads, "I'm hoping to learn to do email so I can talk with you more."

Of course, reading that made me feel a little guilty for not calling as often as I should, so I'm keeping the card propped up on my desk as a reminder. And don't worry, if grandma actually does learn how to use email, I'm sure there will be an epic funny family tech story to follow. Though if history is a predictor of future success, she might turn into an email maven; This is, after all, the same grandmother who mastered the Nintendo Wii in no time.

Are your parents or grandparents as tech-savvy as you? Do you have a funny story to share? Then tell us about it by posting to our Funny Tech Stories group! You (and your fam) could end up on GeekSugar.

My grandmother is 82 and I have her set up with a laptop and wireless internet so she can "do the email". God forbid her internet connection goes down - I get panicky phone calls anytime she can't access her email. I have her set up with remote connection so I can fix any problems, real or perceived. Sometimes I regret being such accessible tech support because some weeks she is constantly accidentally changing settings that freak her out and need to be fixed, but reading her emails makes it worth it. Her typing is horrendous with lack of punctuation, bad spelling and constant switches between upper case and lower case letters - and it cracks me up. If she makes a mistake, she doesn't backspace, she just hits the space bar a dozen times and continues on as if she was on a type writer. :) I'm very proud of her for being brave enough to try something that scares people 20 years her junior.
