Funny Family Tech Stories: It's Mom

Reader colbie posted this humorous story in the Funny Tech Stories group:

My mom can use her computer, surf the Internet, and type on her iPhone. But iChat is not her strong suit, and no matter how many times I tell her I know it is her, I get the same message "It's mom." I have tried to use the similarity between contacts in her iPhone when they call, so she knows who it is each time. It doesn't matter, every IM starts with her classic introduction.

Are your parents, grandparents, sisters, or friends 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.
