Woman Writes a Letter to be Unsubscribed From the Internet

Please Unsubscribe Joyce From Your Internet!

Oh, Joyce, aren't you too cute? She wants to be unsubscribed from "your" Internet because hers gets too full all the time.

She does have an email address, so I'm a little confused as to why she didn't just email this in, but then I'm actually not confused at all. It's crystal.

You know that this letter, posted on Neatorama, was totally written by someone's cute mom who's a little less than tech savvy. Is Joyce your mom? Or an awful lot like yours? Then please join our Funny Tech Stories group, and keep posting her letters!

I wish I could say this reminds me of my grandma but she even refuses to get email because she just thinks it will open her up to a very scary world. Which is partially true because she is very concerned with identity theft, and wouldn't know how to properly protect herself online.

My friend's mother is in her 60's and pretty computer-savvy, but she does have one adorable little quirk: when greasemonkey (which her son-in-law installed on firefox for her) breaks for whatever reason, she'll call her son and ask him "why is my monkey sad?"

At my workplace, people frequently ask if we can see them through their monitors. I once had a woman call in, frantic that her screen suddenly turned black. Apparently well-trained not to touch anything and immediately call tech support, I told her to move her mouse. Voila! Problem solved. Her monitor went to sleep. ;)

one woman asked me why her computer couldn't see her usb memory stick. i asked her where the usb drive was and she pointed to it; it was sitting on her desk in front of the monitor. "it's right in front of it?! why can't the computer SEE it?!"

This reminds me of that commercial where the mailman comes to the door and the lady rushes to open it and she's like, 'Do you have any email for me'. Haha, she was totally clueless!

It is pretty cute... but let me tell you having worked at my local cable/internet company for over a year, it's AMAZING the number of letters we get like this everyday. There are some seriously un-tech savvy people out there. Including some of my co-workers :|

This reminds me so much of my grandmother! When she can't get a page to load, she says it's because "the weather must be bad there."
